I'm back (for ten days, anyway) 
25th-Jul-2008 06:28 pm

To be perfectly honest, I'd pretty much given up on hoping that I'd make it home between operation the first and operation the second. (Yes, there’s indeed another one coming, on the 4th of August to be precise, and no, I didn't know about it until I was already in the hospital - feel free to picture me grinding my teeth here.) But what do you know, I'm home now and I've got the amazing amount of ten days to stay here before someone'll start poking me with sharp objects again. *snorts* Seriously, though, I'm not quite that bitter. I mean, ok, there's this foul-mouthed part of me that just won't shut its gob and keeps on being all nasty and cynical, but really, above all else I feel like doing the dance of home sweet home right now. Oh how I've missed sleeping in my own bed, wearing my own clothes (hated the pink hospital garb not to mention the one size fits all socks, yuck!) and not having to share the toilet with anybody! And then there’s the big plus of having a computer within reach all the time. O' sweet computer of mine - we must never be apart again! LOL! My dogs are still at my parents' place, though, because I'm not really up to taking care of them yet. Actually, I'm kinda useless in general at the moment. Can't really bend down, can't lift things, can only sit upright for 20 minutes, tops, at a stretch, and sleeping is a bit of a problem too. Narrows one's activities quite drastically down, that does. But then again it is possible to have quite a few 20 minute computer usage sessions over a day even if I had to rest between them. Plus this is home, I’m home and it’s all good.

I realize I’m really really out of the loop with everything. I’m going to try my best and catch up with everyone, but despite of my previous boasting my computer time’s kinda limited with all those stupid restrictions, er, restricting me and, to be honest, I still get tired pretty easily. Also, I’ve got this one birthday present manip thingy in progress that I’d really like to finish before the 4th and I seem to be sorta rusty not to mention slow. But I'll be around as much as I can, and man, I can barely wait to see what everyone's been up to lately! I've really missed you guys and I want you to know that your kind words and lovely messages have meant the world to me! Thank you ever so much from the bottom of my heart! *group hugs you all, once again*

Thought I should post something fun, too, and not just my sleeping pill substitutive blabberings. And since I haven't been able to create anything myself in a good while here's a little Spuffy comic clip instead. I came across this while going through my very badly organized picture files and it made me smile. If any of you happen to know the name of the comic this is from and/or if there's any way to catch hold of it I'd really appreciate the info. :)

YAYYYYYY *does happy-dance* WELCOME BACK, YOU!!!!! *hugs as tight as is safe*

I really missed you and I'm so glad you got to go home before surgery number 2 cuz spending the entire time at the hospital would really bring you down and I HATE people I like being brought down (see how I managed to make it all about me? I'm terrible!)


*squishes gently*

Yay indeed, hon! :D Yay's my word! Yay to me being back and most of all yay to the awesomeness that is you! You've just put a smile so wide on my face that if it got any wider my head would probably split in two from the middle, lol. You have this way of, in the lack of better word, radiating warmth and kindness around you, and every time I read a comment of yours I feel like a person who's just been given a huge gift. Thank you ever so much for the warmest welcome ever, sweetie! You're the best! *hugs you tight and keeps on hugging*

I'm blushing furiously! You see, I'm really a bitch *big grin*

My mom says I only care about myself and my sis says I'm rude. Coworkers think I am always grumpy and my RL friends know not to talk to me when I'm in a mood.

All in all not a bundle of joy, you see :-P

It's just that some people bring out the best in me, and you happen to be one of them! *hugs back* I'm really glad you're home!

Aw c'mon, you're easily one of the loveliest persons I've ever had the pleasure of knowing! And really, we all have our moody days and grumpy moments, and as far as I'm concerned it's rather a rule than an exception for close relatives to be telling you that you're rude and only care for yourself. (My mother would probably add the word absent to that list too.) So I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you go looking for a bitch you're quite likely to find one no matter who the person in question is.

And last but not least: I'm most certainly not a bundle of joy either, but you sure make me feel like one! *hugs back*

LOL, I'm far from lovely, but thank you so much hun! And you ARE a bundle of joy *pinches cheeks*

Hey you! *hugs you tight* It's so good to see you!! :)

Thank you so much for helping me out with my comic clip mystery! I'm really lucky to have such an expert to answer my not quite so well-educated questions! The fact is I know almost squat when it comes to BtVS comics. I've been reading BtVS Season Eight and Angel After the Fall as they've reached this corner of the globe but other than that I'm embarrassingly clueless about the subject. So I really REALLY appreciate your help! Oh, and thanks for the link, too! You rock, sweetie, you really do! :D

So glad you're home! Nothing beats sleeping in your own bed again. Best of luck with surgery #2, sweetie. I'll be thinking of you on the 4th.

Love the comic panel. Very spuffy. If you find out which one it's from, pass it along kay? :D

Thank you so much for your kindness, sweetie! You always seem to find just the right words to lift my spirits and make me smile. Thank heaven for you - you truly have a heart of gold! *hugs you soooo tight*

As for the comic clip - yeah, it's very Spuffy. The last picture of the panel is just lovely lovely lovely. *swoons* Oh how I wish that we'd seen Buffy and Spike looking at each other like that more often in the tv show, too.

easy_to_corrupt has kindly informed me that the panel is from the BtVS comic #46 called Withdrawal. I still haven't figured out if there's any way to catch a hold of it, though.

Sweetheart, I'm so glad that you updated your LJ! My Outlook crashed and I've lost my emails, eg. your address :(

I hope you're not doing too bad - Spike is patiently waiting for you, he's got a lot of cuddles for you :)

Hey you! *rushes over and hugs you tight* It's so good to see you!

My Outlook crashed and I've lost my emails

Oh no, that must've been horrible! There should be a law against crashing programs, if you ask me. I loves me computer, but I'm completely helpless when it starts to act up. I've never had problems with my email account (and I don't really have that many people I'm emailing with, anyway), but I've lost my cell phone once and even though it's not the same I feel like I can relate. It was really scary to realize how much info I had stored in that one little electronic device and nowhere else. I had so many people there whose phone numbers were my only link to them, and by losing that cell I lost those people, too. *shudders* Ever since that incident I've been a bit paranoid about these things, and insist on writing everything down the old-fashioned pen'n'notebook way never mind the amusement of the bystanders. I just can't have it happening again. Oh, and before I forget my email address goes like this: framedinlove@gmail.com.

As for how I'm holding up, I think I'm doing alright all things considered. It's not all hugs and puppies being like this, more or less immobile, unable and restricted, but this visit home has really lifted my spirits, and I'll be damned if I let going back to the hospital bring me down again!

Spike's waiting for me? And he's got cuddles? Oh. *blushes* That sounds really nice. *smiles* That'll be the image I'll be holding on to when it's time for my next visit to the OR. A cuddly Spike waiting for me. *smiles even wider* Hee, what a lovely thought. What a lovely thing of you to say! Thank you so much - and not just for that but everything and then some! :)
