We had an earthquake last night, although I didn't realize what it was till Rusty e-mailed me about it. Here's her account of the quake.

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. I had a couple people stop by to check up on me, so I thought I should probably give an update. I'm doing well; I had my first post-op appointment yesterday and everything's healing as it should, but I do have an infection. It's not anything serious, I just have to take an antibiotic for 10 days. It's more of an annoyance than anything else. Other than that, life is crazy. I transferred to the York office last week, and it kind of sucks, but I have bigger things on my plate to worry about right now. I'm getting ready to move as much as I can considering there's nowhere to put anything in the house. I'm having an issue with Comcast which sucks because I'm going to be using them as my ISP and the spring semester starts the day I move, so it'll be massively inconvenient to try to do an online class without having internet access at home. But I can always stay late at work, go to the library, or go to my parents' house, so it's not the end of the world.
I'm off to bed--I've been so exhausted lately that I actually sat down at my computer last night at 9 to work on a paper and fell asleep right there at my desk. I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas has a great one!

So apparently the procedure I had done today is a whole lot of nothing. I was under twilight and not full anesthesia, and they said I only slept 5 minutes after I came into the recovery room. The last thing I remember is being worried about 5 people staring at my naughty bits, then the sedative kicked in and I started laughing, then I was out like a light. I woke up what felt like 5 minutes later (it was actually 40) and had no idea where the hell I was, but figured it out really quickly. I asked the nurse if I could have some caffeine and ibuprofin (but first I had her check to make sure I wasn't going to be charged for it because I'm a cheap bastard) and that was it. I was rarin' to get the hell out of there and eat real food! The hardest part was getting the IV in because I have invisible veins, but the nurse got it on the first try after flicking my hand for 5 minutes. I'm in absolutely no pain and just a little tired, but I didn't sleep well last night anyway. I don't want to get too excited though, since I don't know how I'll feel tomorrow. But so far everything's all well and good. Thanks for the well wishes!

Sorry it has been a while...I think everyone's sort of slacking on the blogging front. I tend to do most of my communication on Facebook, so hit me up if we're not friends there yet. I also started a private blog a few months ago, but my use for that is over. To get you up to speed, I'm having minor surgery next Tuesday and I'm moving out on my own in January. I was using that blog as a place to gather my thoughts.
I went out for dinner with a friend from high school last Tuesday and then went to dinner with Rusty and her family on Wednesday. Thursday was Thanksgiving dinner with just my parents due to some extended family drama. Rusty and I huge out briefly after our respective family meals, but we were both in a tryptophan-induced haze. On Friday I cleaned and stayed as far away from malls and shopping centers as possible in the morning, then Rusty and I went out to dinner and to some stores...things calm down in the evening. On Saturday I cleaned, did laundry, watched movies, and did some school work. Sunday was more of the same and then I took yesterday off and ran some errands. Today was total insanity at work and I was NOT glad to be back. December is going to be completely crazy starting with bloodwork tomorrow (they can NEVER find my veins), dinners out with friends, surgery, transferring from the Harrisburg office to the York office, post-op appointments, Rusty coming home, Christmas, New Year's, winter semester... I would love to crash in January but there's moving and even more class. I don't think I'll have a chance to relax till June, but it's ok...idle hands are the devil's workshop.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and I'll try to check in as much as possible throughout December!
