About Will Durst
Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together a comedy quilt of a career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice overs and most especially, stand up comedy, into a hilarious patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. His abiding motto is “You can’t make stuff up like this." The New York Times calls him "possibly the best political comic in the country." Fox News agrees "he's a great political satirist," while the Oregonian hails him as a “hilarious stand-up journalist.” This former radio talk host, oyster shucker, and margarine smuggler currently writes a nationally syndicated humor column, and his scribblings have appeared in Esquire, George, the San Francisco Chronicle, National Lampoon, The New York Times and scads of other periodicals.

Title of this Week's Durst Case Scenario HIP HIP HOORAY!!"
.
.
Happy Spring Everyone!
.
It is the time of rebirth and new titanium for both Mr. and Mrs. Durst.
.
It has been a long hard haul since my last update.
Will has been complaining of hip pain for a few months. We thought it was related to the compressed discs in his back discovered in the MRI he had done in September. An x-ray was taken of his hip a couple of weeks ago and lo and behold it revealed a fracture in his left hip. Go figure. I took him to my surgeon (I’m having total hip replacement in @10 days) and she said the fracture is at least a year old if not older. How and when this happened we have no idea. With Will’s bones becoming so brittle over the course of the last couple of years it wouldn’t take a fall to cause a break such as this one. The upshot is: Will is having what they call a “hemi”—a partial hip replacement. They will replace the ball part of the socket with some shiny new titanium and he will be finally admitted to Acute Rehab after surgery. He will still need to be at the assisted living facility once he leaves the hospital, barring any time needed in a skilled nursing facility.
.
Good News: We finally know why he’s been in so much pain and it is fixable.
Gooder News: We are both getting operated on the same day!
Goodest News: I am hoping we can be in the same hospital room post surgery so we can have a “press the button for self-medicating morphine drip” contest together.
.
Needless to say this small blip will postpone Will’s homecoming a bit longer and I will need to continue to pay for his room, meds and supplies at the assisted living facility. It will be maddening not being able to drive for a while during my rehab, so I’ll have to figure out a way to get him his weekly PBJs, Oreos and Italian Roast drip coffees.
.
We love all of you and thank you for your continued support in our efforts to get Will back up on his feet—literally. I believe once we have the hip issue addressed and he returns to regular sessions with his fabulous PT and OT he will be able to stand and put weight on that leg. Then look out. Walking can’t be that far behind.
We wish all of you a wonderful Spring and a Happy Easter! Remember: On Easter Sunday, Jesus comes out of the cave, sees his shadow, and baseball season begins!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! Take care of one another, look both ways before crossing and GO GIANTS!!
