    Not much to tell (yeah right), I restarted my life about 9 years ago, after spending almost 5 months in the hospital with a fungus that started in my lung that spread to the INSIDE of my brain. The largest of the masses inside my brain was the size of a golf ball, and 10 more of gradually smaller sizes. The Doctors didn't think I would make it, BUT I have a GREAT wife who stood (and slept) by my side. And With GOD in control ALL things were/are possible!
    I play mainly the "games" because they are easy to type. When I type it's ALWAYS like playing Boggle, the way I see the keys, they are always moving around the keypad, dyslexic now I guess (among OTHER problems of the mind). BUT AT LEAST I CAN TYPE AGAIN, even if it's only with one finger. Only on a VERY good day can I do much more.

    PS for a much more detailed account of my (first AND my latest) illness, it can be found in the arena of CHIT CHAT, under the heading of INJURIES, ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS at Post # 52 and Post # 57 !

    PPS, I go into it A LITTLE more detail about me (like I haven't said enough) in "The Getting To Know You" thread, Post # 70.

    PPSS, even more personal stuff in "Have You Ever?" post # 1097

    PPPSS If you want to see a SHORT story I did, then check out "Have You Got Any Pets" post # 29.

    PPPSSS I've been asked in a couple of PM's about my new (to this site) picture, so I figured I'd answer the questions here once and for all.
    1) Yes, that is a real live Burro.
    2) No, my wife does NOT consider this cheating !
    3) No it was not trained to do that. I was actually warned against doing it at all (I've never been a great listener).
    4)No, it was not in ANY way Photo shopped. It happened as you see it.
    5) yes, there was a trick to it. If you look in my left hand, you will see a small bag. In that bag is Burro Treats. I put a LONG treat in my mouth. And even if it looks like my eyes were closed, let me assure you my left eye was WIDE open.
    6) No, no Burros were hurt while taking this picture.
    Any further questions, feel free to ask away !

    As many of you know, I've been on vacation visiting a couple of hospitals (including tours in ICU's) for 2+/- months.
    I wasn't in any condition to go into great details, but let me assure you, I am now closer to healthy then to dead (which for a while was a very real possibly).
    I CAN say that my condition involved a simple (simple..ME?), gall stone removal, a MASSIVE infection, medically induced coma, and other ugly stuff.
    Which, I've said, can be now be found in The CHIT-CHAT Arena under the thread INJURIES ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS Post # 57.

    My "newest" health issue, as of May Forth (May The Forth Be With You) is a hernia at the operation site of my gallbladder site.
    I have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow.
    As most of you know, Any surgery is (for me) inherently very risky
    with unknown side effects each time.
    I'll keep you posted as I learn anything.

    I've been in & out of surgery again for said hernia and again had some side effects and posted them in a brief note on INJURIES, ACCIDENTS, AND ILLNESSES Post # 75


    Thanks to all of you for your thoughts, prayers, PM's, etc.

  7. Thanks, I'm not ready to get up the dogs care how much sleep I've gotten. Here is a back to bed win !
  8. KAREN, ELOISE says thank you so much ! We took 2 of our grand kids. ELOISE had a GREAT time ! We went to the movies and saw Boss Baby, it was very funny & cute. We just got home (12:15AM) so it's way past my night time pills, see you some time later today LOL.
  9. Good morning back to you all. I won't be around today as it's ELOISE's Birthday today and shy wants to spend the day along with our grandkids. So in just a short while it's off to Reno for her day !
  10. STACY, I believe you are about 1/2 way there from your home (depending where in Az. you live. I win !
  11. Catman cartoon.
  12. So far so good. I win !
  13. Yup, now it's just a waiting game. I WIN !
  14. STACY, Does that mean you are coming to help? You don't live TOO far from us (LOL). KAREN, Because I take "anti-stress" pills there is nothing urgent on my part. PS in the middle of this post, we had/have a lot of help ! We are down to beds, dressers, frig, and my desk. Almost as far as we can go until our daughter is totally finished with our new place.
  15. KAREN, at some point you may have to, as we have to rely on others to do the actual moving part, and once the bed gets moved we need to get my office desk moved the same time as the computer company moves the router stuff. Or I commute (or I'm off for a few days). But today I win !
