New Computer AND Countdown to Surgery...

I finished two projects for the Lace Wonders book and have a few more projects in mind. I'm not sure what I'll design/knit next, depends entirely upon the mail...if my yarn arrives I'll then decide!
My sweet husband's gift arrived 2 days ago, my new Gateway laptop, it's such fun! I now realize exactly how outdated my 2 year old HP was! Technology is fast, isn't it?!

Next week, Jan. 11 to be exact, is the big day...my 6th hip surgery, 3rd revision on this hip...I'm told it's the last, for some reason I believe it this time (LOL, as the # of surgeries proclaim, I've been told I was having "the last" surgery more than once!). but, alas, I'm a believer, and am looking forward to it because the new pain that has surfaced as Spike began to truly show herself as she was wearing out over the past several months will theorectically be alleviated! So, much as I'm trying to revive my blog, I may be down for a bit due to surgery and recovery....or it may be a surgical walk in the park, as I'm expecting!
Now, I'm off to contemplate the next knit design and continue my "Mad Men" marathon...have a great weekend!

A new computer. That's great and just in time for your recovery from your hip surgery. They have improved them haven't they? My laptop is 4 years old...I can't believe it. The time goes by so fast, but it will have do for me. No plans to upgrade in a long time though it would be nice to have a tablet. Maybe some day...

Good luck with your surgery. I'll keep you in my prayers. They have made great advancements in orthopedics so I hope this time will be your last. Good luck :)

I got my MacBook almost 4 (gasp) years ago (my one and only laptop so far) and it was so wonderful to have while recovering from a hysterectomy. My daughter loaned me her first 2 seasons of Lost, which totally hooked me in and converted me to watching tv series on dvd if at all possible! Nothing like not having to watch commercials or wait a week for the next episode.
I will be praying for you next week (your surgery date is my husband's bd so I know I'll remember). Bless you, dear cyber-friend, fellow knitter and sister in Christ. <3

Hmm, looks like I can't spell my own name! It is Kathy, not Kahty! Going to correct my info. :-)

Thank you both, SO MUCH, for your prayers, I'm always very, very, very nervous prior to surgery, I think it's because of the things that have happened in the past (hip dislocations, etc)...but prayers of my friends will help alleviate this!
My husband pointed out that because I'm disabled and home (and often have to be in bed due to pain) and am on my laptop all the time that I'm probably on my laptop more than the average bear, so to speak...therefore, the reason that my old one was wearing out! But, when I removed all of the documents, photos, games, etc it was much happier and Lonnie said it suited his purposes perfectly and he's now using it! Thankfully, it wasn't dead, rather tired of my abusing it, so to speak, lol!
