Default I'mhome but both my main computers are down

I finally made it home only too find that i still must use my laptop. I've no idea yet what the problems are but I'll find out.

Came within an ace of not coming home. This morning while loading up the car I crashed to the pavement for reasons known but to God.

I got dizzy and that was it, down I went. Jeff wasn't going to let me go home but to be honest, I told him I had to.......period! Two friends finally picked m up at 8:30 when he couldn't find anthing major that caused the episode.

I came home to my furry children who are all over me and I do feel somewhat better this evening. At least I get to sleep in my own bed.

Two good friends absolutely would not let me drive so they came up to pick me up and cart me home. I have to admit the tears flowed like rain at their insistence! As I oft say, I consider myself one of the most blessed people alive.

Tonight I'm planning on hitting the hay as soon as I complete this post.
So I guess thats it. I'll get to work on the other computers when I regain some strength.

Love,

TDH

Hi Todd, glad to hear that you are back in the comfort of your own home again, but for goodness sake please take care & look after yourself - you can only take so much hospital food haha.

Speak soon & have a relaxing day/weekend,

Alan & Katrina

Todd, I am glad you were able to go home. Healing is easier in the familiar comfort of home. Take it easy and get well soon. We can wait. Prayers and good thoughts coming your way.

Todd, that you dropped like a stone as you left the hospital, is scary. You need to get one of those medic alert electonic things, to be able to call for help when you need it. Please consider this, and, I wish you alll the best for an uneventful recovery.

Todd,
It is so good to hear you are back home with your animals and can recover...Just take it easy, I am sure you will figure out the computer problems, at least you have your laptop.

Henry, are you sure that it is not, Welcome back cooter!" Todd, my best wishes are that you get well and strong as soon as possible. We need your voice of sanity on this site, particularly after what the supreme court just did!

Todd, glad you are home. Please, please consider the medical alert thing. It might not save you from getting hurt or having an issue, but it will assist you getting help if you fall far from the phone.

My DMIL did not have one, fell and spent 4+ hours trying to get to her phone. She did fall after getting one, but, at least, she did not use all of her remaining strength to get to the phone.


Take it easy and rest as much as you can.

Thank you all for your wonderful wishes. Yep, "Cooter" is a far more appropriate term.]

Ond very sad note. I lost my precious Weaver last night. As senior cat is title was, of course, King Weaver The First. He had a long life and his death was if not unexpected, still a shock I really didn't need at this stage.

Alas, God knows best and I think it's appropriate that he crossed that Rainbow Bridge to be with his Mother on her birthday which would have been today. So it's a pretty bittersweet day, nonetheless I still (as I always have) consider myself extremely Blessed and therefore I extend those Blessings, Prayers for those on the list, as well as 4th of July Holiday Wishes to all. And please..........remember that not only is this the birthday of our country but it is also the day we honor those who have given their all so that we may live in freedom.

God Bless each and everyone of you!

Todd - I am so glad you are home and are resting up. I am so sorry that you lost one of your furbabies.....that is so hard to face, I still tear up almost two years to the day after I lost my Gusto.

Now, take care of yourself and make sure I don't have to come down there and take care of you myself....and please consider getting something like Lifeline or similar...it could save your life.

Wow, I get busy and forget to check in here for a while and all kinds of things happen. I really need to try to make this website a daily habit again!

Todd, I am so glad that you are home and that in spite of the problems, they have you up and running again. Enjoy your afternoon with the kitty cats. Are there any good races to watch today?

Take care

Phyll

They run tonight at Kentucky Motor Speedway. The manner in which the track is constructed pretty much guarantees a boring race. But then again, you never know.

Love,
