The visit to the doctor yesterday brought good news. I’m healed and he released me to go home. Yea!
Once I get there though, I won’t be able to get on line for awhile. My nephew was scrubbing the mem ory and reinstalling the software to get rid of some pesky crap I’d picked up somewhere. He informs me the part that gets me online was shot(I’d noticed in the recent past occasions when I was working and I’d just go offline for no reason I could see). That’s got to be ordered, then get him down to finish up getting me ready. So probably a week or so before I can get cranked back up.
I visited the Doctor yesterday, after missing him two weeks ago in the big storm. He said the graft had healed but wanted to give it a couple of more weeks to allow the skin to toughen up. It wouldn’t do to walk on it too soon and pop it open.
So I’m shooting for getting home in the week after next.
Visited the doctor Thursday and things look good so far. Go back in two weeks. Another irritant cropped up though. Gout hit my left wrist and caused the joints on the forefinger to swell up. That’s doing good now that the family doctor prescibed something.
And now, I want to thank you friends for all the good thoughts and wishes, not mention the phone call from Charles. Totally unexpected and I was asleep when the phone rang, making me a bit befuddled at first. But it helped my spirits.
I’m currently at a rehab facility healing from surgery. They did a skin graft on the bottom of my foot and said absoluely no weight until it healed. I have to do things that absolutely me you forget any sort of modesty to keep that weight off the foot, but doing okay otherwise.
I have plenty of books to read, the family keeps me supplied from home, and they have a computer. But man, is it slow. Mostly I do a few reviews.
How long will I be here? Who knows?
I have a doctor’s appointment in Winston-Salem this afternoon. My foot doctor says I should be in the hospital and am seeing the surgeon that amputated my left a few years back. Hope it won’t go that far.

Timewarner finally got things back up to snuff this morning.
I got up yesterday morning at my usual three a.m. to find no internet, phone, or about half my cable channels. The res seemed to be playing a game of popping in and out on a regular basis. A call to Timewarner got me the information that yes there was an outage and they were working diligently to get things straight. Everything should be uo and running by 11:00 a.m.
No such luck.
A call told me that the next available man was between eight-to-nine this morning.
The man showed, but never entered the house. he informed me there was a digital box on a pole with a crack in it. It would be another hour before the truck with a crane and a bucket would arrive, then probably lunch before it was fixed. He had to go inform other neighbbors of the same information.
Fortunately they were faster than he’d predicted and I’m good to go.
