    Graceful roll, we all love you, even if we haven't met you. The human race (especially hikers ) is quite remarkable.

    Hello, lovelies

    I've been a bit cranky and tired. I am not getting much sleep lately. There are less than empathetic nurses. There also some CNAs that probably have a CBC lower than mine. If they had anymore air in their heads they would float away as they took my blood pressure and screwed up 4 a.m. blood draws that had to be done again at 5 a.m.... Redrum.

    However, today has been alright I guess? I was a bit of a weepy mess, but that happens from time to time.

    However, I got some AWESOME emails lately, and a lovely present from the trail. <3

    Rain Man, Johnny--thank you for the cards.

    Tank and everyone else that sent emails in the past few days, they cheer me up so much.

    All of the support I receive is so essential to my mood and well-being. I couldn't ask for better friends and 'strangers.' Once I am well, we should all get together.

    The doctor is extremely pleased with how well I have been doing over the critical first week that he's not so sure I'll need to stay TOO much longer. Oh, and, he said there is a possibility I may go home for Christmas! Cross your fingers for me, okay?

    That would be great...here's hoping.

    That's great news Kristen! A good nights sleep and Christmas at home would be a huge step in the right direction. I'd love to see that! Thanks for the update. Don't feel too bad about being cranky, you're entitled! Hugs and Trail dirt.

    ^For a first-timer you got the hang of it pretty quickly. You shoulda turned to us White Blaze Diagnosticians from the get-go. www.whiteblaze.net/forum/showthread.php?t=66588&highlight=diagnostic

    When the hospital bed + sheets start feeling like sandpaper, ask the doc to write an order for a Big Agnes Insulated Air Core, a silk liner and a goose down sleeping bag.

    The <3 is for real. From my best AT trip ever. When I peeled away from the hunters & their dogs on lower ground, ascending As Knob at a good clip (felt like my lungs were hanginí from my bottom lip) there stood a bear. Right on the trail in front of me. He had the high ground. I had the cookies. Then he sat down and stared. Stalemate.

    Cookie Bear finally ambled away in his own sweet time. I like to think itís cuz I talked dirty to him & barked like a dog.

    Thatís the same trip where the <3 magically appeared on the trail. Use it as a talisman to ward off air-headed blood suckers. And bark like a dog.

    thinking about you. was reading a website called future timeline. it bases its predictions on the paths were on now. read it for like 3 hours last nite. at the age i can exspect to live to,..im fifty in march,....when im about 80 or beyond,......life will be extendable so that 80 year olds are "indistinguishable from people in their 30's". it says.

    a hand held devise will have a chip that is able to do more operations per nanosecond than all the brains of everyone who has ever lived times billions to the 15th power of the square route of infinity times like 27.anyway,...they predict that in just the next few years we will have all sorts of things like planetary wide eco system failures, an increase in information waste manegment industrys and the development of artificial integegence.

    in other news,...were all thinking about you. except for jack. hes thinking about squirrling away a roast beef sandwitch somewhere. later he'll think of you kindly im certian. lol.

    also,...their will be no bears while you are sleeping.

    i never said jack, that you were squirrling away a roast beef sandwitch, i said you were thinking about it. and im not the thaught police. in the future , squirrling skills will be highly sought after by young beautiful women. the measure of future man in the post bacon apocolips baconless manscape will be his ability to attract a mate with nothing more than squirrel bacon. roast beef bacon will have long been forgotton.take gracefull roll for instance, shes young, beautiful, and heir to a bacon fortune. so shes not gonna be available. she will have her pick of a multitude of squirrlers.such bacon rich females as kristen will rule with an iron skillet.
