I got a new computer! A good friend surprised me on New Years with a MacBook Air and Dragon dictation software. Toben has made my new computer look just like my old one with a little help for the Genius Bar at the Apple Store.
Today we are working on getting Dragon installed. With Dragon I'll be able to do everythign on my computer by voice command: blog, email, facebook. It's going to be very cool.
Yesterday we went to church. I had been going with my mother-in-love on Sunday afternoons to a contemplative service, but the church moved it to Thursdays at 12:15. So it's been a while since I've made it. It was good to be there yesterday. Especially with Toben there too.
Tomorrow I'm having breakfast with a few friends. It is January 11th which marks my three year strokeaversary. In many ways it feels so much longer--three eternities at least.
On Monday I have an appointment with my physiatrist, that's the fancy name for a recovery doctor. I haven't seen him in well over a year so we're just checking in. We have a list of questions about medication, therapies, and future doctor visits. Please pray he keeps the needles locked up--he's the needle-happy doctor. And once agian I have a no needle policy for the new year. I'm prepared to hide under a chair or run down the hallway if neccesary. Toben's going with me so I will have a hand to hold in an emergency :)
Thank you for all the comments, email and feedback from my last post before Christmas. Christmas ended up being a lovely, chaotic time. And I came back to the Springs feeling surprisingly rested.
That's all the news for now. I will be sure to post something after my doctor's appointment using my new software which should be up and running by then.
Thank you Toben for being my typist today.
