I found when I was cut off from the internet world, I picked up the phone more often and actually PHONED people! I must say that was not a bad thing at all.
Today a hole was drilled through the wall of the room that will host my office area.....eel grass came out of the wall (insulation from 60 years ago)....and through that hole came this weeee internet cable from the outside world into mine. Why hello little cord, what knowledge do you have to share with me!!!
My friend is still in the hospital, but he is surrounded by a strong medical team....and it was that medical team who gathered around his bedside this afternoon and watched him do his pump site change, and asked 15 minutes worth of questions! More impressively, the nurse that came on duty in the evening knew all the pump lingo :)
I said we were pump buddies, as I pulled my pump into view of the staff. We stick together!
