I don't know how long my computer will let my stay on before it logs me off. I haven't checked yet, but unless AOL was under some kind of major attack yesterday, this may be the end here of my trusty ol' cyber-pal. I couldn't even get up enough browsing power to send my friend Mary an electronic greeting card, and I tried nine or ten times before I finally gave up and defragged the damned thing, again. I'd get on for just a little bit, be able to do one thing, and then off I'd go with my little David Letterman, "Goodnight Linda" sign off. It's getting so I'm developing an aversion to his voice. Drew Barrymore greets me when I sign on. She says, "Hey Groovy."
Mary if you're reading this, you naughty little lurker-gal you, Happy Happy Belated Birthday sweetie. I do adore you, I do, I do, I do, I do, I do! Can you guess what song that was written to? I really did try to send you a couple of funny/sweet cards, but I couldn't even get up enough steam to send off an e-mail. We'll have to do our birthdays together over lunch when I'm just a bit stronger.
God, all I was able to do today was to get up, get dressed, do my hair and makeup (a big deal for me since I hate it), and go to this support group meeting. Driving home I could feel just how much weaker I am than I want to admit to being, and fell asleep until 7:30 this evening.
I'm going to try to tackle my e-mail and if I can open and read and then miracle of miracles, send any out, I'll count myself lucky. Then tomorrow I'll begin getting back to my darling LJ pals who were kind enough to comment here.
I'm going to try super pureed soups tonight since I'm doing so well on the smoothie protein drinks. I so love my doctor and his caring staff. I mean it, if anyone wants to talk to me about this, or needs a referral to a wonderful surgeon, please don't hesitate to ask. You can reach me by e-mailing email@example.com. Oh and I did lose twelve pounds. It's a good start, yeay.
Okay wish me luck. I'm afraid to try to go to Del because there's some kind of leprechaun greenie in my browser who just might start the whole chain of crashing thing again.
