I had my surgery yesterday but had some complications and had to stay a night in the hospital. BUT, I am now home and have minimal pain, so that's something. Fingers crossed!

Sorry to hear about the complications, but I'm glad you are home and in minimal pain and hope your recovery goes smoothly!

Thanks everyone. It's not too bad now- still have sore spots (of course), but I'm stubborn and SO has to remind me to not do certain things. I feel bad that he's doing so much for me, but again, I'm just stubborn.

Thanks. Taking one day at a time. Trying to not bend or pick up heavy things. Planting seeds and watching really bad tv has occupied my time. Even though it all sucks, I am very, very grateful.

Echoing all the good wishes for you. I'm glad that you have some help with getting things done and that in general this situation is not as bad as it could be.

My inhale is reviewing an excellent paper. I was not expecting for it to be so excellent, but I ended up having very few suggestions for improvement. The paper is also helpful to my own work, and I hope that it gets published soon so that I can use and cite it.

Apparently someone actually reads those survey results! I said in the survey that my personal computer came with a pen, which has now broken, and since I use the pen for teaching, I'd like a new one, please. And now the admin people have just gotten in touch and said the department will buy me a new pen. Nice!

A friend is going to turn their planning and consulting skills on a project I've had in mind for awhile...unbidden!

We'll do a swap, which is fine, and I didn't even think of asking them (should have)--they offered.

Win-win.

M.
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

Hope the project proves fruitful.
Don't lay up treasures for yourselves on Earth, where they can decay or be stolen.  Lay up treasures for yourselves in Heaven, where there is no decay or theft.  Where your treasure is, you heart will be also.


You can't take it with you.  You can only send it on ahead.

Thanks. I've had some things back-burnered for awhile, and we started talking about that and it morphed into an insights and implementation discussion.

I'm hopeful.

One trainee had a paper accepted and another one won an award for their research!

After recently venting in the venting thread about doctors not taking me seriously, I went to a new doctor who referred me to a specialist. The specialist informs me that all my symptoms are quite commonly encountered by her, I’m not “just anxious”, and has put together a treatment plan for the next few weeks to work on identifying causes and improving symptoms. She already identified some issues that are contributing but she wants to consider everything. She spent an hour with me and then set me up with ice packs, heating pad, and a tens machine for twenty minutes to make sure I felt okay to drive home afterwards since the evaluation aggravated my symptoms.

So relieved to be taken seriously. So relieved to be shown descriptions of symptoms that match mine. So relieved to have a plan in place and the potential to eventually not be in pain!
