Just a note to let you know that my computer is broken and is being sent off to the hospital for...(gasp)...4 weeks. I was just about to post a spring photo album when it died.
As if that weren't enough, our phone service in the apartment, which is extremely inconsistent, is back to VERY BAD. You have to hang off the balcony to get a signal. And James has evidently thrown away my new bluetooth, which at least enabled me to put the phone outside on the ledge and have a conversation indoors.
This is why women my age hate technology. Too many complications.
Amie has very graciously loaned me her Mac for the day so that I can check my email. I just had to make a solemn vow not to look at her Facebook pictures.
Anyway, I just had the opportunity to read Katherine's latest caringbridge entry on her difficulties in communicating. It has been such a sad thing for all of us, but, of course, especially for her. How I miss the sound of her voice! I fervently pray that I will hear it again one day.
Communication is something we take for granted until deprived of it.
Perhaps we're supposed to learn to listen better during those times.
In the meantime, please forgive me for being incommunicado.
(And maybe someone could pray that BestBuy's prognosis was overly pessimistic?)
Thank you for your faithfulness.
