About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

All Odds Aside, GOP Girding for A Floor Fight..NYTimes

Daniel Borris for theNew York Times

CHICAGO — For the first time in a generation, Republicans are preparing for the possibility that their presidential nomination could be decided at their national convention rather than on the campaign trail, a prospect that would upend one of the rituals of modern politics.

The race remains Mitt Romney’s to lose, and if he continues to accumulate delegates at a steady clip starting with contests in Puerto Rico on Sunday and Illinois on Tuesday, he can still amass the 1,144 necessary to secure the nomination before the last primary, in Utah on June 26.

But as he struggles to win the hearts of conservative voters and hold off a challenge from Rick Santorum, party leaders, activists and the campaigns are for the first time taking seriously the possibility that neither he nor anyone else will get to that total.

In that case, the nomination would be decided by the more than 2,200 delegates — from obscure local officials and activists to national figures — who will attend the party’s convention in Tampa, Fla., in late August.

Thank you for your kindness and an update.

First and most important: Thank you to everyone who sent good wishes and thoughts my way. You are greatly apprciated..
You have no idea. I am at home and three days ago, I started driving again, so I can get around.

One of the posts from the March 9 thread stated that it can take a year to get one's strength back from this kind of surgery. Another
friend said at least 6 months. You have helped me to accept the fact that the weakness doesn't go away immediately.. My brother had it and after ten days, he was walking a mile.. He is not me..and I was/am not as good shape as he was when he had his. The idea of getting around is actually exciting. So last week I went to buy food at two different foodstores. So I used the shopping cart as support and went and bought food and brought it home. I am so grateful that I can do those little things, even though I am very slow at it.
I am slowly getting stronger, although some days it does not feel like it. I am greatful for friends and family who supported me thru this
And thank you again to the lounge...You Are the Best..

Home from Rehab, Surgery Ok, slowly regaining strenth

About a month ago, I posted that I was going in for by-pass surgery. They did it Feb 9. It was more extensive than I
thought it would be and I was a lot weaker than I thought I would be. After a week in the hospital I went to a Rehab
facility, and begain to regain strength.
Today, I left tha rehab place and I am home. This is the first time I have been on the internet in a month. I am much stronger than I was a week ago, but, I am taking it one day
at a time.
.. I still have a long way to go. Thanks to all who wished me well, and I hope to post more soon
