I had been rushed to the hospital and was just there overnight for observation. Or so they told me. Said I could go home the next day. I was adamant about making them keep their word. The doctor wanted me to stay longer than the regular checkout time so I could receive a pint of blood. Nope. I am going home! The next day I found myself back in the ambulance and had to stay overnight again so that I could receive TWO pints of blood. Lesson learned.

Good Lord GG! I'd put this one in the major vents thread, so you're a real trooper. Hang in there! I'm sure you'll be back in the kitchen cooking before...the doctor things you should.

Thanks, Z and CG I'm doing okay so far. With luck, I'll be home tomorrow in time to go to my weekly dinner out with friends, so I won't have to cook till Thursday

Urrrgh. 82 degrees in the appartment and the cat thinks it's cuddle time. I tried telling him he could only cuddle if he brought me an ice pack but he just looked at me in that typical condescending way that only a cat can manage. I'm pretty sure he was calling me stupid and telling me to shut up.

Same problem here. Latté considers it my problem that there is only a thin sheet instead of a quilt to protect my skin from her sharp, loving ministrations. And why the heck is that fan blowing in her face? So she pokes me full of holes and then leaves in a huff.

Well, the top button on my iPhone quit working. I can deal with that. I called the LOCAL number for the LOCAL Verizon store to see if I could get it fixed LOCALLY and got the whole menu of runarounds. After a half hour of this, and after stating to the autoserve that I wanted to talk to the LOCAL store rep, I was sent to Arizona and talked to a nice man with a heavy accent. He was able to patch me through to the LOCAL store, and was able to get a rep, who told me she would put me on hold for 2 minutes. 45 minutes later, she reappeared, apologized, looked up my account, and told me there was nothing they could do since I didn't get the insurance, unless I bought a new phone at full price.

Thankfully I'm eligible for an upgrade in August. What a PITA. You can't even call the LOCAL store directly and talk to a real person. Grrrrr.
