Kes is recovering
Bar Harbor

We're in postop. Doc says she did well and can come home after a bit of rest. She is snoring gently now while I hold her hand. Expect her to be completely out of it for at least a few days, and low on spoons for a few weeks.

Hurrah! Send her our best wishes!

On an unrelated note, do you know from whence the "out of spoons" concept originated? I said something about being low on spoons to Rick the other day, and he stared at me blankly.

I first heard the phrase from LJ user Issendai and I asked my fellow access witch Jesse the K about it, and jesse_the_k"> pointed me to
http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/the_spoon_theory/

Its author is Christine Miserandino,
Another early writer on similar topics is Ricky Buchanan. Xe's had a
LiveJournal forever at
http://rickybuchanan.livejournal.com,
and also
blogs about AT for the Mac.

Of particular wonderfulness was An Open Letter to those without Fibro/
CFS

Fingers crossed. I hope this helps her headaches.

Glad to hear she's doing well.

My household appliance is on drugs. Horrible.

I was confused for a few seconds before the old, "Oh wait is that an icon reply" kicked in.

Huzzah!
