Hey All, (Some of you may have already seen a post very similar to this…)
Sorry to drop off the face of the planet, so to speak, but I have been one sick witch! Since Sunday I have been under the weather (slight understatement...), but finally, Thursday after 4 complete bedding changes, literally having to change my sweat soaked sleepwear roughly every 30 minutes or so, unable to sleep, yet not really awake either - kinda in what I call lala land, and living on orange juice & alka-seltzer plus, I finally took myself to the prompt care at the hospital down the road. Where they "promptly" shooed me to the ER due to a BP reading of 198/126. (That was apparently caused by driving there while so sick...) Four hours, a shot of morphine (for the mega headache & lower back pain) and a bag of saline run into me later, Hunny took me home. I am finally starting to think I might live...not 100% yet, but considering I was functioning at maybe 15%, a definite improvement!
Thursday night was the first night since Sunday I didn’t have to get up every 30-45 minutes to change my sweat soaked jammies (only one change that night! woohoo!), I slept almost all night (morphine, maybe..?) and this morning I was able to assess my house (OMG! can we say TRASHED!?!) and actually make some headway towards making it a home again. My Hunny did his best to take care of me, bless his heart, he even went to the store. No biggie you think..? This is the man who hates to shop so much that when he needed an axe, I was the one to go to Lowes for it, LOL! And he went several times...
I have been off work most of a week (if you remember, I tried to work Monday, but that didn't last beyond 2 or 3 hours), and according to the doc will remain off until this coming Monday. I have been off of EVERYTHING. . .I didn't even look at my computer until Friday night, so I am going to try to get thru the 124 emails in my inbox (most of them digest form...) and hopefully get caught up on the news, comics, and various other things I’ve missed.. My plan includes this a.m. resuming the horoscopes, and I am going to try to respond to anything that had been pointed in my direction *grin*
Alrighty, here is today’s puzzle stats, then I’m off to dive into the mailbox, and hopefully not drown :) Oh yeah, someone asked me if I shouldn’t be giving the number of letters as part of the daily puzzle stats (hi Tom! *waving*). That isn’t one of the pieces of info provided as part of the puzzle completion info. I know I could probably go count the letters, but since I am essentially LAZY, that’s not happening any time soon….
I was also asked for the location of the puzzle instructions…just take yourself to the site, and there is a “Help” link. If you click that it’ll take you to instructions :)
