Jill is back online from Swedish Hospital

Yesterday Rik coordinated with several frends who might have a spare laptop with wireless internet that they would be willing to loan me while I am inpatient. D and G came through with a Mac PowerBook G4, which is simiar to the iMac we have at home. So here I am, typing slowly with many mistakes, trying to get used to not mousing, but back on line at last.

I love being reconnected to the larger world again. My hospital bed is as narrow as you can imagine, I haven't left it in days except to do the IV Pole Tango while walking the halls, and this reconnection to the larger world blows me away.

However, my fingers are slower than they were and each post seems to take much longer than usual, plus I have chemo brain, so don't expect more than one per day.

I appreciate all your kinds messages -- please keep them coming!

  1. Oh, it's good to hear from you! I hope that you're feeling better. Have they given you any idea of when you will be able to come home?

  2. How nice you can post from the hospital ... hope your stay is not too long.
