The Computer Is Back From It's Vacation
After dealing with Dell's Tech Support(there's a loosely used term for you!) we decided it would just be better to bring it into local computer store - good decision! It was gone for 3 days and they fixed the USB problem, reinstalled the printer, cleaned the files, installed Norton and Symvac and straightened it all out all for under $100. Dell sent me a customer survey which I filled out and got no response (how shocking is that, sigh). The guy at the computer place said my experience wasn't unusual, he said he'd heard the same problems and complaints from other clients. Anyhow - David had his basal cell removed from his neck on Monday and we both agreed it was a good thing he moved the appointment. David will never let that go again, he was in there for well over an hour and has a 3" incision down the jawline to prove it. The doctor ended up taking quite a bit and he has internal and external sutures - I had to drive him home as he couldn't turn his head. The swelling is going down today and the sutures come out Monday. I had my followup appointment yesterday and will be returning to work on Monday with lifting restrictions - as lovely as it's been being home I have to admit I am getting a little bored. I'm still not allowed to do any sit ups or weight lifting but I can use the elipse which I was on for 40 minutes and it's just as great as I thought it would be. I'm on the 2nd row of houses in Baby Blanket News, everyone in the surgeon's office got to see it. I take my knitting for anything that might take longer than 10 minutes and it's funny how sometimes no one will even notice and then other times I spend more time holding it up than I do knitting. I'm not sure what I'm doing this weekend, Susan and I might go out to lunch and there's a Ramp Festival in Core on Saturday http://www.richwooders.com/ramp/ramps.htm (all the ramps you can eat!) so it might be a busy weekend in West Virginia!
