Hello All,

Jacob updated our Adobe and now I cannot see any of the books I recently read, on the right sidebar, can you? Please let me know. It's driving me nuts and since I am off from work all week, I cannot check from another computer to see if it's just ours not letting me see the widget. That's the first update.

The second update is a little lengthier and explains why I have been away for over a week. Jacob had outpatient surgery. I won't go into the details other than to say, it was a scheduled thing and it ended up being not what I thought. We are currently dealing with open-wound healing. He has a wound, it's open for the world to see and, after being taught by a nurse, I get to clean and pack it.

It's scary and overwhelming and panic-inducing. I called my eldest sister, in a hysterical crying fit after first being taught to clear the wound, telling her what was going on. She called her man to explain what was going on. He left work, brought her gas $$ and insisted she drive up. Now, Brenda does not drive by herself anywhere. Anywhere. And here she is, 3.5 hours of drive time to come be a support system for us. She has. She took nurse's aid classes and is not even a little squeamish. Jacob agreed to let her be in the room when we clean the wound, and she's hysterical funny with the calmness and the matter-of-factness of it all. Professional terms be damned!

We (kids and I) have this next week off; they for Spring Break and I for vacation for the surgery. Brenda will stay as long as she wants. Hopefully his healing will be fast.

I'll keep you updated.

I'm so glad you have someone to help - I'd be squeamish for sure. Hope he heals nicely! :o)
