Re: Vacations and Absenses
I say transpired as well, but I often get accused of being too classy, cultured, educated, pretentious, and so on for using large words by my redneck friends and family.  :p

Re: Vacations and Absenses
Going out of town on the 23rd, access to internet will be spotty until I return on the 9th. I'll get posts in when I can but don't expect anything from the 30th-2nd as I'll be camping and just away from a lot of technology in general (though if I get truly bored I might hunt down an outlet and try to use my iphone :P). Just a heads up.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
Hey guys,

I'm sorry forgot to remind that I'd be on holydays after I mentioned it on my 4 July post, hopefully it did not cause a big confusion. I will still be away for a while.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
The next three weeks, I'll be incredibly busy, and will have extremely limited time to spend on RPoL.  So, until the start of November, feel free to NPC Nenor if you need to move things along, and I'll try to check in when I can.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
Sounds good. I'm still busy myself. The money I was hoping would allow me to get a new computer got put elsewhere without my knowing it so I have to try and make due with what I have until such a time that I have extra cash for a laptop or something.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
I just got off the phone with Amilynn, who is right now in the emergency room at the hospital - during our oldest daughter's surgery, she passed out, had a bad fall, and got hurt pretty bad.  She couldn't talk for long, and we're not sure just yet what the cause was here, so I'll keep everyone updated when I hear from her again, hopefully very soon.  If anyone would be inclined to mention her in their prayers, I'm sure she'd appreciate that a lot, as would I.  :-(

Re: Vacations and Absenses
Passing along a message she was able to type up in a game we're in:

quote:
Checking in.  Trying to, at least.  Concussion.  Fractured cheekbone and hairline fractures on side of nose and possibly lower right forehead.  Was hard to read the CT scan but can't remember why technician said it was.  Sprained elbow and knee, on right side, to go with my already sprained left ankle from trip to pumpkin patch with all five kids (our three and nephew and baby niece) on Saturday.  Knocked a tooth way loose, can't chew anything, can't hardly talk.  Most consonants hurt very bad to say because of tooth.  Inside of cheek cut so bad almost needed stitches, but I talked out of.  Had to get back to daughter.  Couldn't let her wake up from surgery without me there.  Haven't missed a surgery yet, not about to start.  Lip is busted way bad, especially on inside.  Bit tongue hard, is swollen and sore.  Just not a good day for me yesterday.  Having hard time thinking and typing.  Mind all fuzzy and forgetful.  Is hard to remember even simple words when asked question or when trying to think.  Keep making mistakes typing, not sure I'm catching all and fixing.

Katelin is in lots of pain.  But surgery went well.  Specialist cut away some of her ear canal to make less narrow, easier to see in and to hear for her.  The tumor not back, but their was a pocket it had etched out in middle ear, and he filled with her own cartilage and scar tissue.  That should help with pain and hearing.  Had lots fluid in, so he drained and pulled out her tube since wasn't working.  When pulled out, he found it way clogged up.  Put in fresh tube.  That should help both her pain and hearing.  Her prosthesis that replaced the bones in her middle ear was in right place still, which good, but somehow top had ended up touching against bone of part of skull.  Because of that, couldn't vibrate which is how helps hear, sends messages to brain.  So he had to shave away the bone was pressed against.  Her incision is still bleeding more than she would like, but I think is still fine.  Specialist called last night to check on us both - he such a great guy and all his nurses are too (they insisted on buying me something for lunch because of it and because why passed out, think forgot to tell why, will in minute) - and he says her amount of pain and the bleeding to be expected.  I watching her for infection just in case.  She pretty clingy, even for being big kid now.  My dad moved two recliners right next to each other so we could both rest but still hold hands.  We sleeping on and off while movies on tv.

Reason I passed out was blood sugar way low.  Because Katelin can't eat or drink before surgeries, I never do either.  Feel wouldn't be fair for her see me eat or drink when she starving and thirsty.  Usually I no pass out, this is her twelfth or thirteenth surgery on ear alone, after all.  But night before forget to eat dinner cause Joshua was clingy and fussy and needed me.  I know I get sick and woozy and nauseated when no eat, but guess just forgot because worried about Katelin and her surgery.  So anyway, no eat or drink at all, got to feeling sick.  Went to bathroom next to Katelin's rrom in surgery center to try and vomit, but couldn't.  Decided to try and potty, but woke up face flat on floor long time later in pool of blood.  Tried clean up to go get nurse cause could tell I needed help and no wanted Katelin to see her mommy all bloody, but apparently I was so pale she knew was something wrong anyway.  Made her cry.  :(  Bgroke my heart.  :(  Ran back into her room, wouldn't let nurses or doctors take care of me until I calmed her down and made her feel better.  Then they made me go emergency room.  But made ER peoples let me go soon as possible and walked, almost ran, across big parking lots to get back to surgery center in time for Katelin wake up.  I made it, too.  Was so glad.  Whole time I in hospital, I kept crying for her, afraid I miss her wake up or really ruin her day me being hurt, afraid something go wrong and I not be there for her.  Even cried when slept, apparently.

Anyway, so not sure I can post much.  Will try keep up and try post when can.  If mess up, please feel free to edit to fix or whatever is needed.

And thank you fors good wishes and prayers.  Knowing anybody cares always makes me feel better.  I sorry things always seem to happen here.  Don't know why always have such bad luck.  Maybe is to balance out finding such a wonderful guy to love me and take care of me.  If so, is much more than worth is.  Don't know why bad stuff has to happen to my babies, though.  At least this srugery should help Katelin's constant pain and continued hearing problems.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
Thank you, I appreciate that.

I went ahead and posted.  Hope I'm feeling better enough that it's not a truly terrible thing to read.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
Hey everyone, I'm vacationing in Indiana today through Saturday. I will have a ton of free time and my laptop so posting shouldn't be a problem. If I go a few days without posting its because there is good stuff happening in Indiana.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
Finally done with practice teaching - now comes all the papers that are left this year, one more three-day meeting at school, and exams at the end of the month.  Still, I'll be much more available than I have been over the last four weeks, and in a day or two I'll be making my way through the games I'm in, getting back into them again.  Until then, I'll be resting a bit, and hoping the cold I've caught goes away quickly.  :p

Hey everyone, been working on moving these past few days, it's been rough and I'm finding I am not very good at the logistical side of these things. I should be posting again soon. Sorry for this delay.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
I will be on vacation Aug 10-21 in Bar Harbor, ME. There is internet access, but there will be 10-12 of us doing hiking, biking, eating, game-playing, and relaxing, so I may be more sporadic.

Been wrapping up classroom training and moving to on the job training so posting has been spotty as I transition from needing to be at work at 3:00pm to needing to be at work at 8:00am.
