|The Little Boy is home
Snug and smiling and happy, and his parents can finally get some sleep.
|Update on the Little Boy
Simon had kind of a rough weekend.
|Best news ever about the Little Boy
The surgery it over, it was completely successful, and he should be conscious and being weaned off the respirator (again) within a couple of days.
|Little Boy News - Important
Simon's surgery has been bumped up to this Friday.
|The latest on the Little Boy
Hi. My name is Simon.
|Update on the Little Boy
Guess who this adorable charming Mr. Chubbles is?
All he was doing was going out to get pizza.
|Good news on the little boy
He's adorable. I haven't seen him yet; he was in the hospital and I got pneumonia as soon as he got out.
|The little boy is doing well
I wish I could post a picture of him, but his parents don't want me to.
|The little boy is home!
He was released this afternoon.
|Good news about the little boy
It sounds like he's coming home soon.
|The little boy's first few weeks
The little boy is my great-nephew. He was due on Christmas, born early in the month, and born with serious problems.
|The broken bridge in Delaware
You can take this story with a grain of salt, or not. All I can tell you is that it's true.
|Down I go
The way Concussionland goes is that you have a good day, sometimes several good days. And then you have a bad day. I had a couple of really good days this week. Didn't need to use my cane, ran ...
|Go away, derecho! A picture diary
It's not the contractor's fault. Who could expect a tropical storm in June? Or that for no particular reason a few days later we'd have five more inches of rain? He dug in preparation for concrete.
|End of the last three years
As many of you may know from my continuous whining, three years ago my life changed. First my eye doctor stabbed me in the eye, resulting in corneal surgery that didn't work, and left me with a ...
|Why I Hate Surgery, Part 3
When we last talked, I had had sinus surgery on March 21st, come home on the 22nd, and fallen flat on my face, gaining a concussion and a broken nose, on the 25th. My doctor said he thought that ...
|Why I Hate Surgery, Part II
in which escapee learns things. SHE DIDN'T WANT LEARN ANY OF THEM, but you can skip past the orange kadoodle to learn them along with her.
|Things I Hate About Surgery
As some of you may know (I've certainly whined about it enough) my husband and I caught whooping cough in November. We recovered - it really does take a hundred days - but I was left with an ...
|I owe myself this diary
It's completely personal, but even if only one person reads it, it will be one more person who sees the way it was with me, and with my family.
|Whooping Cough: Public Safety Message
Whooping cough (pertussis) vaccines wear off. Especially the ones you had if you were born before the nineties. If you were born in the 50s, yours has substantially worn off. Contact your doctor ...
|The Martian Death Virus
Purely personal diary. If you don't like that, move on. How many of us have the chest-coldy virus that hangs on and on and on? The one that makes you cough until you whimper, steals your senses ...
When I was ten years old, my mother got married to a guy who belonged to a sect I call the Church of the Final Thunder. Very rigid, very sexist, very authoritarian. Very much of a pain in my ass. ...
|Wednesday at Undisclosed Location
Breakfast at Uncle Bill's. Every morning I see piles of fruit and whipped cream and pancakes carried past. I have eggs over easy; Mr. escapee has blueberry pancakes. He says they're the best in ...
|Look at Penn State
When I worked at Big State U., there was this locked drawer. Once in a while someone would go into it. It was the Drawer of Exceptions and Big Secrets. Famous peoples' names were in there, 99% of ...
|We need some relaxation
Maybe even fun. Things are too tight around here lately. Follow me over the squiggle.
Too many football players, too many hockey players and high school kids, taking what are called 'minor concussions' and going right back into the game like I saw at least twice last year with the ...
|Italian-speaking Kossacks? Help!!
This is totally personal. I don't speak Italian and I have an urgent need to translate a phrase.
When I was little, my mother and I lived with my grandparents. My grandfather was a welder, and my grandmother was a housewife. But she hadn't always been.
|The best person I know here
is boycotting. My heart is telling me to boycott. My brain is telling me that Kos is liable to ban everybody who does, but if he does, then I don't belong here anymore. BiPM, WYFP, all the places ...
|He's coming home
My friend Alice has a son. He's a grown-up now, a Marine, married with children. I used to take him to Star Trek conventions when he was a teenager.
|The Apocalypse and me
This is a little story about how people are different, and how things you start don't turn out at all like you intended.
Poor you. I've been thinking all day. Now you get to endure the results. Has anybody noticed that blue jersey mom is gone? What kind of person do we want this community (and it sure doesn't ...
|The Technician, Her Income, and Her Benefits
I had to go to the ophthalmologist today for glaucoma tests (my gigantic optic nerves make me a permanent suspect), and since I'm still fighting the concussion, Mr. escapee drove me and went in with ...
|Cracking your head and the bills therefrom
As some of you may know, I went out to dinner on February 13th, a Sunday. We drove from Delaware, where we live, to a big lobster place in Cape May, New Jersey. It was very crowded, and the ...
|Around the neighborhood
Errands this morning, driving all around the outskirts of Wilmington for this and that. (I haven't been in downtown Wilmington for at least two years. The last time I was down there, I was ...
|Completely personal diary about my eye
Back on July 13th, an ophthalmologist accidentally injured my cornea. I developed recurrent corneal erosion, which means your cornea is prone to suffering erosions (like scrapes), and they hurt ...

|22,000 Social Security numbers??
So my little state wanted to find a better deal on vision insurance for its retirees. I support that. I'm a state retiree, and I use the vision insurance. But then, this morning, this shows up on ...
|About my mom
I think I may have posted this in 2005. I spent the morning in the garden, and the forget-me-nots she gave me and the irises I split to give her some are all in bloom. It made me think of this, ...
|Look What They Did To Me! (A Photo Diary by Ben the Cat)
This is how I looked yesterday. And this is how I look now.
I don't know if this is an appropriate subject for a diary. Oh, well. I don't know any other way to thank all the C&Jers, and friends and well-wishers who have offered their mental support to my ...
