Radio silence from Ohio.

Hey, guys. A week ago today my grandma had a massive stroke, and I've been here in Ohio ever since. As the modem is apparently broken in my PowerBook, the only place where I can get online is a wifi hotspot in Wooster, which is apparently having some major issues with outgoing ports or something along those lines, because I can't connect to make any updates here. At the moment I'm in an Apple Store in Cleveland, ogling one of the new 23" displays and hanging out with my mom, taking a break from all the medical stuff.

Anyway, long story short, I'm going to be offline for a little while longer. I'm not sure when I'm heading back to Chicago yet, since things with Grandma are still up in the air. She's recovering, but she's still really weak, and she's really unhappy in the nursing home where they sent her after the hospital. Yeesh, what a week.

Thanks for all the support you've been sending me so far, folks. I appreciate it. I'll catch you later.


So sorry to hear, Geoff! Let me know if there's anything I can do.

What a terrible ordeal! I am so sorry. Sending you hugs!

Sorry to hear of the personal strife, Geoffrey. You have my best wishes for better days to come.

It was great to hear from you, though I do wish the circumstances were better. Best wishes for her recovery, and let me know if there's anything I can do to help out.

There isn't much I can add that hasn't already been covered. I could send a long list of "Ways to have Fun in a Nursing Home," since my grandparents were in one for over 15 years.

But I'm thinking you may not be game.

I can also send a long list of ways your grandmother can have fun in a Nursing Home. My gandparents always had fun torturing the help. Maybe when she has more energy.

Sending my hugs

I will keep you and your family in my thoughts. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

One more voice to add to the chorus. My best to you, your parents, and your Grandma. If there is anything I can do to help, just ask.

-Nick F

My prayers are with you and your family.

So sorry to hear about your grandma. I hope things get better for her and your family. Let me know if you need anything.

Thinking good thoughts man.
