I'm afraid I was one who thought it said your mom died, too! Whew!! Glad we read it WRONG!!

Have u ever gotten one of the "travel mouses" , the ones that you just use on your finger and click ? It's helped me out a lot--found it at Wally World! It's called a handheld Tracball. I even use it at my PC so I can sit back and be online.

I've been dying to get a laptop so I can sit comfortably in my chair and read the KH forums and blogs!! I didn't know it would be that bad to look at--I've got a little mouse that's a tracball and fits over your finger that really works well for me; I just wish I had a laptop--just one to surf with--not all the fancy burners, etc!! I have been having numbness in my left foot, and the doctor ordered x-rays of my lower back. He called today and said that the x-rays had caught a little of my thoracic spine and that they could see "degeneraitve disk disease in my Thorax". He didn't seem to think it was affecting my foot, but he told me to get back to x-ray to get all of my spine x-rayed.

I'm a little unsettled, since I've had to walk with a cane for several weeks now because of my foot. Could any of y'all who pray you that pray say a little prayer for me this week?? Thanks!

Thank you for changing the title! I kept reading it as mother too and TWICE clicked on it to remember that it said monitor and was about computers and not mother. Glad you are getting a new one. I go crazy anytime we don't have a working computer. Although right now we are doing pretty good with 3 working desktops and 1 working laptop. (can someone find me some wood to knock on?)
