You wondering what I've been up to?

image  On 6/11 I had played 739 games I was at 33% of the games won. Now a little over a month later I'm up to 38%. And I've played 2218 games. Aren't I really making something of myself? Are there any hiring managers reading this that need a professional Hearts player?

Some news. My Daughter Adrianne is 10 weeks out from her due date and is in the hospital with some complications. She has Preeclampsia. Her blood pressure is elevated. They have for sure taken her out of work, which bums her out. And for sure she will be on total bed rest, Either in the hospital or at home. She is in the hospital that she works at as a nurse and they have a very good Neo Natal department. There hoping to get here to go as long as possible before they have to take the baby.

Our niece Grecthen graduates from Naval basic training this weekend. The next phase of her training takes her down to Florida. Her dad and Sherri went out to Chicago for the Graduation.

That's about it. My leg still bothers me and so does my back. I thought I was going into a Manic stage but the last couple of days I've been really down so I guess it was a false alarm. I sure felt good for a couple of days though.

My buddy Shawn just had his first of two hip replacement surgeries. He couldn't go to breakfast last Saturday, but he is returning to fray tomorrow morning. He's getting around better on his crutches .

My sister Donna must have me on ignore. I haven't heard from her in forever. I assume she's still alive. Well back to the hearts game.

Hi and right to the topic of toxemia (preeclamsia) have her eat a very high protein diet and high vitamin B's /protein shakes, stay in bed and lay on her left side --heart and organs function more efficiently that way.

I had this w my oldest daughter from the 4th month had to stay in bed. my daughter was born healthy and over 9lbs. The toxemia is very dangerous but definitely manageable, and the diet/nutrition works.

I'll be keeping good thoughts for her and the baby.

Now about you laying on the couch all day day dreaming about who knows what.

Call the computer game addiction hot line! lol

Dearest Mark sitting glare eyed in front of the computer screen:

The interesting and provocative depiction of your 1000's of Hearts Games via the computer Gods leaves me beyond speechless.

I will have to take some time to process and evaluate this monumental development in human digression.

Continue on bravely in your gallant efforts with meat sauce in hand.

Glad to hear from you and the update on the marathon heart games. I'm hooked on playing several different games at Gotta do something to pass the time right?

I'm enjoying my sabbatical. I will get back into blogging again soon thanks for stopping in and checking on me. It sounds like the progress with your daughter is encouraging.


My brain was fried it was just time to get away again for a while. Heck I haven't even stopped by to read your words of wisdom in a while. I'll be by soon.


From your post it sounds like your going crazy not being on the truck. I'll have to check out that site you mention.

My daughter spoke--9 words. I better read Cindy's blog to see what's happening here. I hope the summer is a good one there.

Mark Krusen said...

That's awesome. I'll go over to your blog to see what she said.

Hi Mark,

Sorry, been meaning to come over for ages but it somehow never happened until now.

Was hoping that your pain levels were reduced to nothing.

Is there anything planned for your back and leg or will you just be given pain relief and have to hobble as best you can?

Hope you have a good day today with warm and sunny.

Thanks for stopping by. I haven't been active blogging lately. My leg and back are about as good as they are going to get. Some days are better than others. You know how that goes right?
