Birthday Mayhem

This post will be disjointed and possibly incoherent, but it’s my birthday AND I’m having surgery in two days, so I’m allowed!

1. It is official – I either need a brand new computer OR I need an external hard drive. My laptop has a tiny hard drive because really, you don’t need to be storing oodles of stuff there, and I bought it to write. My PC, however has a bit of age on it (for PCs, that is). I took a gander at my C drive today and oops – I don’t have my space available there either. Let’s put it this way – my new ipod classic has more space than my PC AND my laptop combined.


So if someone, anyone could either find me or build me a reliable external, I would be most grateful.

2. The emotional rollercoaster has begun. I had my first directly-related-to-surgery anxiety dream on Friday night. That sucked. Then I was breaking into tears over cheesy magazine ads on Saturday, and this morning my dad’s voice broke over the phone when he called to wish me a Happy Birthday.

And to think, I can’t have a drink until after the surgery.

3. Now that I’m (apparently) cleaning out my hard drive, I ran into this – it is at once disturbing and horribly funny…..

Mysteriously (cough, cough) I seem to have located a couple of stray photos of nekkid men too… Wonder where those came from…. (cough, cough)

Hang in there. It is a big deal but you’re doing a great thing – something many will never have the opportunity to do.

And as I posted earlier, you’re not alone. There are lot’s of people sending you support and will be thinking of you and sending you energy Tuesday and beyond.

I was at the hospital for the surgery yesterday. Cristy came through with flying colors in about 4 hours of surgery. Her sister took about 6 hours, and was in recovery when I left at 4pm. Last thing Cristy said when I saw her in recovery was “Morphine rocks.” She should be discharged tomorrow (Thursday) if all goes well. Kidney was making urine. Go Trixie!

Thanks for update post Keri. It’s good to know that it all went well and if she’s enjoying the morphine that’s a nice little bennie

A friend of mine (actually she’s Korean-American blogger I’m stalking) had this picture on her website… Along with the joke about it being ironic that the Koreans were the ones who cloned dogs…
