its my birthday and I can cry if I want too

I'm sitting here typing in my very first post on my brand new laptop that 'the husband' brought me. It takes some getting used to, that's for sure. I can't believe how thoughtful he was getting this for me. Its got nothing to do with him wanting to use the computer for himself or anything, sure, he does love being on the desktop and now I can stop annoying him and kicking him off when I want to just 'play' on my things. Either way, very happy is me about my new laptop :)

Mum is still in the hospital, I really feel like she is finally getting somewhere, she has now 4 blood clots, one in each leg, one in the lung and one in her right arm. They have put in a 'filter' to stop the blood clots from moving, which is a God send. Not sure if I told you that she also broke her leg when she collapsed, which meant that she had to have her ankle pinned, she is now sporting a boot and is not allowed to put any weight on the leg. They also did a gastroscopy which showed that mum had 2 old cysts in her 'somewhere' and next week they will be getting her to shallow some pill shaped camera's to see if they can finally locate the bleed. She also may not be released to home but to a rehab centre until she can use her arms and legs again, which is a good thing but still scary for mum.

As for me, well it was my 42nd birthday today. As I stated before, 'the husband' brought me this laptop, we went to visit my mum in hospital and then out for dinner. My desk was decorated to the sh*t house, could hardly see my computer screen when I got to work. So as the day ends I'm as happy as I can be, 'the husband' ran off to band practice which means we are both blissfully happy tonight.

Chao for now

Happy Birthday. Sorry about your mom. It has been a very long road for her and you. I hope they find the bleed.

Have a good rest of the weekend.

Hope you had a great day..
I cam across your blog over at Trishas..
I thought that your post about your friend was an amazing story. I don't want to say to much for your privacy but I am sure you know what I am refering to. I also have MS and can't have kids..So that is an amazing gift!!!

I also got a laptop from my husband last year for my birthday. I can't tell you how much I am attached to this thing and you will be too. I love that i can sit anywhere in my house. Especially with being sick I can lay in bed when I want or when I have no choice.
I am gonna tell you what I wish someone had told me..
When you are using your battery unplug it..Then just plug it in to charge it. Otherwise your battery will be dead in a year as mine is..!! Now I need a new battery. I just heard this tip but it is now too late. Plus I crimped my cord in my couch and surprised I did not start a fire when I let the recliner out and it was sparking..!! LOL
Enjoy your computer..( :

New 'puter-cool!

Sounds like your mom is on the mend or headed in the right direction, may take a while but sounds like she is in good hands.

I wouldn't take your b-day decorations down for the next year-until right before your next birthday.

Keep looking up-I'm thinking about you!

Hey I love the new background!

Your hubby needs to get a gold star on the forehead for such a top pressie.
