hello there!

yes, i'm still here. i'm a bit beat up, but am keeping on keeping on. this is my first access to laptop, and it feels funny. i haven't been able nor up to posting really.

so, here's the 4-1-1- ....

i'm not ready to go home :( so they've moved me over to the skilled nursing facility or "SNiF". the stubborn me say's hell yes, i'm ready to go home. emotinally. mentally. but i am really not ready to go home... physically. and i recognize this. so, i didn't put up a fight, believe it or not (Babz!). yes, i'm behaving. i'm in skilled nursing because i still am having medical issues, along with my other cadre of stuff, so it'm not just your regular ole hip replacement. there's more too it.

i had a few set backs with medication mixups (both over and under dosing), and blood work numbers not looking so good (had to have a blood transfusion), and finally juan just going off on everybody!

overall, i am doing well. truthfully, i am not feeling too hot, i hit a wall today and just had nothing to give. i couldn't even pretend. plus, and most importantly, i am missing my family - my baby - ladybug. she started crying on the phone last night and i almost lost it! i was able to talk her down though, and managed to avoid the waterworks tonight. i'm ready to go home everyone. but, enough being sad. i've got to get my bum in gear and start working tomorrow so i can come home!

thanks for listening. caring.

be well :)

I am happy Juan let you use the laptop!

Hang in. Ladybug missess her mom. She'll be fine once she see you up and about.

Yes we all could a Juan going off on our behalf. Ain't nothing like a strong Black man to make shit go right!

Good you hit a wall. You needed to. I suspect you have been coasting on adrenaline for a very long time now. Hitting the wall does not mean failure. It means you have to look at things from another angle.

I am with you. Focus on what you have to do. You will be home in no time.
