Addie, I figure they wouldn't be able to schedule an appointment for internet installation until they were actually in the house. From experience, I know the expected occupancy date and the real one usually is different. Always later than expected. Then it's arranging a convenient appointment time. Hopefully she'll be able to pop up at DC within the week, fingers crossed. Until then it's probably sneaking in a minute at work, a trip to her Mom's, or pirated access off of someone's WiFi. No time for DC that way, darn.

I know about that WiFi business. I have a set up here that is going that same route. Pirate uses it for internet access on his phone. I have sent up a small prayer that we hear from her soon. Here's hoping that it was heard. I miss her so fiercely. I am surprised at myself.

Hi everyone, just thought I would report in. On the weekend I was rushed to hospital with a possible stroke; thankfully it was just another in a series of TIA's (mini strokes where the symptoms usually go away after awhile). In fact I had three from Saturday noon to Sunday evening.

I still have a speech delay and slightly weak right hand as well as being very tired, but am getting better each day. I will be going to see a neurologist at a local stroke prevention clinic next Tuesday.

I just wanted to let you know why I have been scarce and won't be around much for the next while as typing and dictating are a challenge right now.

I am okay though and TB and our friend Kay are taking very good care of me.

I had a rough day today but we think it was mostly because I did not sleep last night, getting only a couple of restless hours. But on a bright note, my appointment with the neurologist is moved up to tomorrow morning. Hopefully some good will come out of it.
