Re: Out of Character 8
OMG, so sorry to hear that boss.  Not much we can probably do but I am very sorry to hear it.  Remember to take care of yourself while you deal with the situation, whatever it is.

Wish we could get one of these priests on site to give you a hand.

We will be here when you come back.

Take care of yourself first, when your child come out of hospital they need you to be health so you can look after them properly.

My best wishes to all of your family.

She should be getting discharged today. She is doing much better. The ER folks just need to coordinate with her regular care team.

It wasn't as serious as her doctor had thought.

She is home, stable, and dealing. Mental illness runs in my family (see my entry in Stat Yourself). I am glad we have decent insurance.

We have some in ours as well.  Mine is minor and well managed, but some of the extended family have it in higher doses.  Not easy boss, and sorry you have to deal with it.

Re: Out of Character 8
Now I almost want to play an Artificer with a Golem powered siege auto-crossbow...


AHAHAHA!  LET ME SHOW IT'S FEATURES!

Almost.  But I'm already playing a one-trick pony, and that's generally my limit.

Re: Out of Character 8
To pull a page from Ben Ten, you can have a fire elemental inside an armor golem...
Or a ghost inside a diving suit, to rip from Hellboy.

Got slammed today with a side of stupid
(A techie disabled equipment in a room and went home, the setup takes about 5 minutes to swap the item between two respurces, and no cases can be running in either room during the swap out)

What fin. Hopefully back tomorrow.

Even duct tape can't fix stupid.

It can, however, muffle it...  :/

I have come to the determination that  hate influenza.  Too much pain for such a tiny little virus.

Re: Out of Character 8

Feel better!

On the meds... so I 'do' already... and 'don't' as well.  But it's Flu type 'A' so it's at least the easy one to kick.  And a straight out run of the mill secondary bacteriological ear/sinus infection on top of it.  Yay... z-pack.  My digestion runneth over with joy.

If it all goes as well as sicknesses normally do for me, I'll be fine by Monday.  On the plus side, the absolutely funk enforced bedrest has finally healed up the blown out knee I suffered over thanksgiving.  So... a positive?  Worst attempt to save money I ever had.*





* The friday afternoon after Thanksgiving the water main for the house ruptured, swamped out the front yard.  Took me over a half an hour of digging and chopping tree roots by hand to get to the valve by the street (the tree had collapsed the enclosure, which since I never open the enclosure I never noticed till now).  By this time my right knee (which is badish) and my left knee (which is worse) hurt.  So I says to myself, "Self, we're already in pain.  We can save a whole heap of Holiday Weekend Labor fee and parts markups and just fix this ourself.  It's just plumbing, ain't like we ain't done this a hundred times before, and it'll only cost maybe $30 and a few hours work."

Well...  I was right, it only cost $20 and that was with me buying a box of nails and a couple of new buckets (which had nothing to do with this repair), however I was forgetting two salient facts.

Fact #1:  I don't actually own a real shovel.  None of my neighbors own real shovels.  The last time I had to do real shoveling (a few months back fixing broken fence posts) I had to borrow a real shovel.  So I had to do all that digging... which increased as I went (decided I had to check the entire length for splits), on my knees, with a 2 foot garden spade.  And I forgot to buy a real shovel while in the Home Despot.

Fact #2:  I am no longer immortal and invulnerable.  I am in fact over 45.  You would think the searing pain in the left knee would have clue-by-foured its way through the stubborn machismo and said "Hey, whoa, slow down man. It's just money and few days of no showers, it's better than a blown out knee."  But no... stubbornness 'won'.  Again.

But hey, 2 days of not really moving too much, just lazin about in bed like a desperately sick guy has finally put my knee almost back to 80% (which is as good as it gets these days).

And it's costing me $650.  ($300 in medical, $350 in lost paycheck).  Sigh.  There goes that Kickstarter I was going to help fund (no seriously, I'm doing okay moneywise.  Six hundred clams ain't nothing to sneeze at, but I've got it covered.  It was set aside for few KSers, which I've withdrawn from).

Maybe next year I'll get the flu shot.  They never seem to help... but then again aside from the flu-like symptoms I suffer from fro a week after it, I also never seem to get the cold those years (not that I get a flu much ever anyway, am a 'cold' guy...).
