I know you people are expecting me to post immediately out of anesthesia - and trust me, I would if I could.
I doubt I'll have the strength for a couple of days, but I hear that the nursing staff makes you get up and walk the very next day, so who knows? Maybe posting will be easy.
I think the best way for me to update you immediately is via twitter. I can use my iPhone for that so it's light and easy. If you haven't subscribed you can do so @butdocihatepink. If you don't want to subscribe - and really, I might be the most uninteresting tweeter in a world of tweeters so I don't blame you - there is a box to the right where my tweets are inlined, so you can just load this page and see how I am. Excuse any potential typos; as iPhone owners know, the device likes to change mistakes into weird words.
It doesn't mean I've thrown a clot.
....cue ominious music... If you don't hear from me in a week, I imagine the news is not very good. My family has instructions to, at some point, update this blog if I can't. When that will happen is up to them.
Dear Criminals: If you are planning on robbing me thinking the house will be empty, think again. I have a big, burly, 25 year old male house-sitter staying here with my dog and cat. It's good to have older children with scary looking friends.
Now, I have to go finish my laundry. Thank you for all the well-wishes, both emailed and posted. I do appreciate each and every thought, even if I can't respond to them all.
My here and now
