Come to think of it, my first lap top weighed 2o or was it 25 pounds. Trekking it back and forth from work the 4 blocks to the parking ramp q/ day. Sheesh. ( I think now having one was more a status thing as if anyone even knew what was inside that black nylon case that easily resembled a shoulder bag that anyone else carried, as much as anything.) And yes, there was 90 degrees with humidity or sleet, hail icy sidewalks, wind and dead of night; or pre-dawn carrying it in reverse as a homing device in search of a hot cuppa. "Kids have it so easy today." Hand-held with pictures, ear buds, music, videos, games, snappy pics and chat; I'm still trying to locate my opposable thumbs and discover are we in sync or do I just need them to hoist up my suspenders. Do they just set their device on the edge of their desk and record today's lecture and sleep through it all. Free alarm clock App provided.

I doubt it.

I could sleep through almost anything. Except school. I liked school. Well, almost. I think my calculus textbook weighed me down more than that first laptop.

PF, this is one of my favorite web sites. Something to while your time while re-cooping or if Shrek needs an escape hatch. I sorely admit I haven't looked at it in quite awhile, there is so much that is new again.

Shorpy dot com.

He takes old photos, either his own finds or reader submitted and restores them to pristine quality. There is seldom logic one to the next. Sometimes there is a little story to go along with each. Beats Mah Jong.

I was not crazy about that floaty, fall asleep at the drop of a hat feeling. Was very happy when that ended.

I was feeling quite sick to my stomach, sweaty and shaky. I quit the pain medicine last night and just took Tylenol. Sure enough, it was the Vicodin they had me on that was making me feel sick and it really was not working on the pain. The doc ordered me Dilaudid for break through pain. A half tab works fine for me and no nausea, etc! Best of all I can think when I have it on board.

Next time I go to the hospital for anything, I'm taking my own tylenol and Ibuprofen...it took me 1.5 hours to get Ibuprofen. Had to aks the doc for it, then send it through the pharmacy, then wait for it to show up on the computer records. That's silly for an "over the counter" medication.

PF, glad to see you've bounced back well. Let Shreck help you. It helps him cope.

Thanks, Andy! I will and I appreciate his help. Shrek's doing better now that I am home. I think it's about time for a nap again, or maybe I should just go to bed for the night. Might take me a couple of days to get back on a regular sleep schedule. I know I need to rest to heal.

When I had my right knee replaced 14 months ago the doc prescribed Dilaudid, too. Mostly because, as it turned out, I was allergic to most of the commonly prescribed pain meds. It did NOTHING. I may as well have been taking water. I ended up just putting up with the pain. I don't know what will have to be done if I have a situation where pain will be a major factor.

They can do a nerve block that lasts for a while, trouble is that makes it completely numb. Methadone sometimes works for people who can't take narcotics. I'll look into it, Katie.
