After a huge fight with an argumentive bot and a so-called Smartphone. It's closer to an idiot phone.

I just moved from Tampa to Lakeland, Fla, and my computer committed suicide on the trip. It was too ancient to survive I-4's starts and stops. One giant traffic jam after another.
Glad to be back!

Glad you got that sorted out. I love technology, but I hate technology :lol:

Glad you've got that sorted out. Not having internet access is like missing a limb.

If I'd known, I'd would have stopped by to visit. :D

We were in Wauchula last week for the gyrocopter show. Practically next door to you!

My boyfriend actually managed to find me!
He hasn't made it to the house yet... he tried to get here during the prequel to TS something with a C. Bumper to bumper semis at 4 MPH was a bit too much. Yes, I said four mph. All the leaky warehouses tried to ship east at once in Tampa, St Pete, Clearwater, and whatever else they found a way out of the water they were under in. It took him an hour to get from one entrance to the first exit he came to. He bailed out, called me and went back to his disaster relief buddies. His last port of call was floods in Belgium. He gets home to bailing his place out.

He did wind up waving at Lakeland as he went by. He was helping at the Orlando shooting tragedy last week.

I may not get to see him anytime soon. The latest bright idea from my children in the Neurology Dept at Tampa General Hospital is sawing my head open and playing in whatever they find. They have chewed their thumbs to nubs dreaming of it for months. I finally got tired of listening to them moaning because of how much fun they would have. I have a severe seizure thing they think they can fix. Maybe. If I'm lucky for one of the few times in my life. I would like to get off these stinking meds they have me thoroughly hooked on.
I don't have anything simple. Oh no. If I have a seizure I get rip roaring full tilt things that put me on life support. Status Epilepticus. I'm talking screaming rides in ambulances on 2 wheels on wide sweeping curves. One trip I woke up when the attendant and my daughter wound up sprawled over me as the terrified driver almost spun out into Tampa Bay. You get a little tired of that.
I hid out in Lakeland after they came up with the bright idea of playing with chopsticks in my head. But if I walk down a hall I bounce from one side to the other, hitting shoulders on the way. The meds are so strong people think I have Alzheimer's. I've had it. Back to the Neurology kids from Med school.

Wow, EP. That all sounds about as much fun as a lakeside stroll at that Disney resort in Florida, while dragging chicken parts behind you. :(
Good luck with the surgery. I hope your Neurology "kids" are genius tinkerers, and that you'll be walking straight as a string soon.

Oh, now they have to find a hole in their crowded schedule to stick me into. I get to sit at home and stew about what they will screw up this time. I called them this morning and told them to find the shoe horn. It may be weeks. Depends on who finds a saw in the sandbox. It's a teaching hospital for 2 state universities and the U of Tampa. The place looks like the UN. My Internal Med pair of Drs is a 7 footer from Ottawa and a 4'6" chick from Bangalore. You can get a crick in your neck if they get excited. Neurology travels in flocks. Cardiology thinks they will get a TD down the hall. They run over housekeeping sometimes.
