MAJOR UPDATE: What with one thing and another, I didn’t get this update to the “expense” pity plea until now.
Good News: The replacement phone is ordered and paid for. Y’all did that; and I’m not sure I’m a good enough writer to express my thanks for the help (and confidence that I was worth your investment). More good news: While the fund-raising was going on, prices dropped (!? Someone really wants us to shift to 4G/5G, and leave 3G behind). I’m getting a decent little phone for maybe one-sixth of what I’d anticipated. I do love when specials show up.
On October 30, the universe decided that I need something to trump the need for a phone by several orders of magnitude. Hip replacement.
Not “hip is old and worn, so let’s schedule elective surgery.” Try a traumatic accident inflicting a hip injury that even the specialists say they rarely see. BP spikes due to newly discovered levels pain were potentially life threatening. Scary, anyway.
And I don’t even get a good story about the dramatic crash out of it. How do you spin “lawn tractor crash” to sound dramatic? Seriously; any cool suggestions?
Got no idea how I’m going to pay for this.
