It has been a busy week at Chez 'Vark.
We have returned from G-fest, and are prepping for IkasuCon in Ft. Wayne, IN. I love Ft. Wayne. Pretty downtown area, with a great convention center, and good affordable eateries.
The Dread Dormomoo went under the knife, as well. Nothing drastic, nor life-threatening, but it was surgery, and she is experiencing the discomfort of recovery. Feel free to pray for her. The only thing that approaches the discomfort of being in hospital for treatment or a procedure is staying in the room with the patient. I wrote about hotel ettiquette at one time, and hospital staff while helpful, are also loud in the wee hours, and not yelling over medical emergencies. Just yakkin'. The furnishings are apparently chosen to remove any question as to whether or not you are staying at the Hilton. There is NO such thing as a comfortable hospital room chair. The straight wood chair with padding had sharp angles thet dig into your back. The padded rocker is built precisely at the wrong angle, and Torquemada would be proud of the fold-out "sleep" chair, wherein occurs no sleep, but much exercise of the twisting and squirming variety in the vain attempt at finding a comfortable position.
She was in the semi-outpatient 23-hour program. The doctors and nurses were good, and helpful; the purchasing agents for the hospital, less so.
The DD is doing well, and is being a Good Girl, not overdoing it.
We give you our latest t-shirt offering. Not an endorsement, certainly advantage-taking.
