My Computer Died!!

Hello Ladies

Right now I am at my mom's house using her computer. Monday afternoon, my computer DIED! I heard a loud pop and then I started smelling something odd. It was my computer tower! So today I dropped it off to be fixed. He said it would be several days before he could get to it. So I may not be on the internet for a few days...

Today was Hunter's appointment. The doctor said it was too bad to do in the office so he has surgery scheduled for the 24th! He also said he had to completely knock him out for the surgery! I dread it sooooo bad! He also said he would be very sore for a few days and would not be able to wear his jeans, pj pants or sweat pants only! I could just cry of the thoughts of him being put to sleep! I know he will be fine, but being put to sleep in one of my biggest fears!

Today was also a great mail day!!! I recieved a beautiful birthday card from Amelia and a card, Dove chocolates, and a beautiful set of 5 inch charm squares with PAISLEYS on them!!! I love PAISLEYS!! I took photos of them but of course I left my camera at the house! As soon as I get my computer fixed I will post some photos. Thanks so much ladies, it feels truly nice to have such wonderful friends like you all!

Well, I need to get on home now, hopefully I will get to post more in a few days!

Happy Birthday!

That puppy is adorable. I have been wanting to get one lately as well. Hmm...maybe later this year.

I hope your son does well with his surgery.

You must be going NUTS... what without a computer and all. Hope your back up and running soon.

Good luck with Hunter.

I thought about Hunter all day at work. It's probably a good idea they do it in the hospital and put him out for the procedure. Hopefully for the first few days they'll give him something for the pain.
I'm sorry to hear about your computer. I was beginning to worry about you. Hang in there.

I'm so bummed about your computer!

I'm actually glad they decided to knock him out. I was horrified that they wern't going to. It'll probably be less traumatic on him that way. Can you imagine having to watch and feel that go on yourself? I'd die, right there.

Hazel said...

No computer ,how are you surviving LOL .It's probably best Hunter be asleep during his procedure , but I know how you feel Moms worry all the time , thats our job .

Suzan said...

I know the thought of having your son totally anesthetized during his surgery is scary but he will do much better and, for him, it will be over in a snap. Poor Mom has to sit outside and wait and that is so hard! Best of luck to all of you.

Andrea said...

Poor old Hunter. Probably best he is asleep but I know how you feel. Best wishes coming your wayxx

Oh no, a dead computer! I was wondering if you were ok. Hope it gets fixed quickly. Happy Birthday!
I'll be thinking of you and Hunter on the 24th. Hopefully Richard will be there with you in the waiting room. Prayers will be sent up for you both.

Don't stress over hunter too much, it a lot of ways it will be harder on you waiting than it will be on him. My thoughts will be with you both.

Happy belated birthday.
So sorry to hear about your computer. Hope it's not too expensive. I'm very behind in reading your blog. Hope to catch up today. Good luck with Hunter's surgery. I'm sure it will all go okay but I know it's hard not to stress. Kids are pretty resilent.
I'll keep you all in my prayers.
:)Carol

I am sorry for your computer woes...I hate that scorching smell! Hope Hunter gets through everything just fine, it is scary to be put to sleep...

Gina said...

I'll be thinking of Hunter. Although it seems scary it'll probably be less traumatic for him. hang on in there and tell him he's a brave lad.
Missing you
love and hugs xxx

Oh, being without a computer is bad!!! I hope they can fix it soon!

Moneik said...

It's so lonely here without you. HOpe you computer gets fixed quickly. I'll be praying for Hunter, but I'm glad they'll put him out so he won't have to hear or feel what is going on.

Quilting Pirate said...

I know your computer is dead, but I miss your posts...hopefully, you will have a working one again real soon!

BitnByAQuiltingBug said...

We all miss you! It's just not the same in blogland without you.

Jen said...

Tap Tap Tap, is this thing on? Kristie, I miss you!!!

Connie said...

Hang in there with Hunter! I swear the waiting is the worst part of anything. Before you know it, it'll be over and everything will get back to normal and it'll all just be a memory. I'm praying for y'all!

Amelia said...

It has been too long...we like hearing our daily dose of what is happening at the top of the mountain.

Hopefully you will be back on line soon!
