Woohoo!

Thanks, everyone. If you're keeping score at home, I'm batting about .333. The knee is progressing but not readty for hardthe hse. The voice is not even close to being ready for prime time. Still, I'll take this over the kinds of things I was imagining might show up this morning.

I found an author who said it much better than I can. Others have said similar things, but this just resonates with me.
Cork knew he shouldn't feel this way, but he hated hospitals. They were places that did people good, that cured the sick and healed the injured, but it was also a place completely outside his control. He'd watched both his parents die in hospital rooms, and there hadn't been a damn thing he could do about it. Rationally, he knew that hospitals weren't about death, but whenever he entered the glass doors and caught the unnatural, antiseptic smell in the corridors, his heart told him differently.

I often have these ideas that I'd love to hear other people's thoughts about. But they're rarely ever well-developed enough to start a thread on them. Would it be extremely douchey of me to start a thread for my pontificating? I mean, is that something someone might be interested in, or is this just my inner attention whore dying to come out again?

At this day and age it shouldn't be too difficult to send an email to inform about a cancelled seminar.

" Most of you probably were at the university already by the time we heard about the cancellation (one hour before the scheduled time), so we thought it's just as effective to put a note by the door instead of sending a group email."

Really?! If you thought no emails were necessary, then why send the explanatory one 20 minutes after the seminar would have begun, when people have already walked there and read the note by the door.

Damn you, people, damn you.

No.

No no no of course not no!

Seriously, though. Do it.

I never claimed that math was one of my higher skills but I can count. One of three medical worries came out positive. The others are still looking for a hit.

It's probably your inner attention whore but she's pretty damned entertaining so go for it.

You have to factor in the severity of the medical worries.

I'll agree with Yank on both counts and the conclusion. The worst thing that can happen is that the thread gets few views and fewer responses and it falls to the bottom of the list. It's not like someone's going to beat you up for starting a bad thread. If that happened, there would be a line up the block, around the corner, and backed up three miles on the interstate ahead of you to get beat up, anyway.

If that *doesn't* happen, then you'll have entertained yourself, and some of us (at least), and perhaps opened the eyes of a few people to a POV they hadn't considered before. Those are all *good* things, yanno?

And how the hell did I miss a thread on favorite pizza toppings of superheroes? Was I sick that week?

I did just that, and it morphed into something of a blog-ish diary. I stopped caring if people read or respond to it or not, but it does entertain me more when people do. Of course that could just be my attention whore ways, but I'm open about being an attention whore, so I think it's fair game.

Well, we finally seem to have things set up. We drive down to Omaha Sunday (7-8 hours of driving) and stay overnight in a motel. I have a cardiology consult Monday morning to make sure my heart is healthy enough for surgery, then an anesthesiology consult later Monday to discuss meds, reactions, etc., to make sure I'm not deathly allergic to the anesthetics they'll want to use. Tuesday afternoon, I see the neurosurgeon and discuss what it is in my head that they haven't yet figured out what it is, and what he'd like to do about/with it (biopsy and/or surgery to remove it). The biopsy and/or surgery are then scheduled for Thursday morning some time. I'm not sure how long the neurosurgeon will want me to be in the hospital beforehand, for meds and food control, but I'll probably have to stay there for 1-3 days for observation afterward, then come home.

All positive thoughts and wishes, prayers or offerings to who/whatever would be greatly appreciated, y'all. Thanks.

ETA: Oh. I'm determined I'm going to the local casino to play a poker tournament tomorrow (Thursday) evening, since I'm not sure how long it may be before I'm allowed to drive, etc., afterward, so some positive vibes from 7-10 PM (Central {US} Time) could be helpful, too!

I'm going to be celibate until I die alone and my cat eats me.

Which is less bleak than thought of ever feeling like this again.
