To the Apple Store

Today has been a busy day. We had a 10:15 appointment with Dr. Shavers, who wrote some prescriptions for insulin needles, blood test strips, and the like. From there we proceeded to whirlpool therapy, which is always fun.

After that, we went to Columbia Mall, where Thomas put me in my mother's old wheelchair, and we set off for the Apple Store.

You see, I've been saving up my pennies, toward the goal of getting myself an early birthday present (my birthday's in June). When all this hospital and home care stuff started, I decided that I deserved to get my early birthday present a little earlier.

So here it is, the newest member of our computer stable: a MacBook laptop that we've named "BrainiMac5" (don't ask).

This was a fun outing, but let me tell you, I was glad to get home! I crawled into my sickbed, took a percocet, and rested my eyes for a while before I even opened the new computer.

At least now I have someting to keep me busy over the weekend. :)

Hi, finally!
I'm sorry I have taken so long to post to your blog after you kindly sent me the URL, but glad to hear your foot is so much better, and that you got a wonderful new toy/writing implement!

I'm not surprised you're doing well. Thomas gave you such attentive and loving care waaaay back at the mini-con, I'm sure he's the best possible nurse for you (and your other wonderful medical specialists seem to be doing an excellent job as well.)

Sending you many good wishes and blessings,

Beth C.
