w00t! That's awesome!

(w00t - i hear is a contraction of D&D slang meaning "wow, loot!")

Davee, I always thought it was what one says when one finally gets root on a machine (whether by legal or by tricky means).

Gee, girl, I didn't realize you were so hung up orthopedically. That's awful. I know the bitch that is structural damage too well, so I'm feeling for you.;)

Many the time I wish I'd had your handy-dandy crutch pockets, esp. when I was in grad school, loaded down with books, flute (& sometimes oboe or sax), music, and various assorted sundries in a back pack. But then what do you do for a drink? A cooking utensil? You seem to have addressed that horribly ridiculous dead end when you grab for the kid's cereal bowl tipping off the table and find yourself on your ass!

Wishing you a super speedy recovery!

P.S. Don't let Moomin play with your crutches in the same room you are in. My kid did, and promptly dropped one of them on my recently broken/surgured knee 2 days after said operation. Hurt much worse than the surgery, & scared her half to death with the blue language I let rip.;)

I used to let the kids next door race down this steep curving hill in my 2 wheelchairs. In retrospect this was asinine and horribly dangerous since it was a ROAD.

I don't need the wheelchairs anymore, it was a long time ago 8-)

Water bottles and travel mugs for hot drinks. What I can't do is bend over to pick anything up off the floor, or take laundry out or put it in.

Rook is being super heroic and doing everything. The best part is hearing him have fun with Moomin and pay attention to him. I am short on patience at the moment. And because he's so good at it all I have the reassurance that Moomin is being properly cared for and loved so I don't have to feel guilty and bad and inadequate on top of feeling sick and needing help myself. Rook is awesome.

Prentiss Riddle

So glad to hear you're getting good care, good support, and yet another creative outlet in the bargain.

I can't wait for you to need trifocals so you'll invent the perfect solution to my (so far, knock on wood) one little nagging body-entropy issue.
