Hello from Indianapolis. Despite statements to the contrary, at the last minute I packed a laptop so I could write for you, my adoring fans! My son was extremely excited about coming to Indy. While I was walking to our concourse, he was all but jogging. I have not seen him walk that fast for that long before. If nothing else, he got a bit of exercise (we left from D concourse…for those of you unfamiliar with the Atlanta airport, D concourse is about a mile from where you go through security).
We are now hanging out in Catherine and Stan’s (my in-laws) house and they (my son, Cat, and Stan) are rocking to Guitar Hero III. Here is a picture of the rocking! Apparently as an added bonus to coming and hanging out with Cat and Stan, my son has all weekend to play with their Wii. As I told him, this weekend is all about him and he is welcomed to play the Wii as much as he would like. He is happy.
I am doing okay, though I began yesterday having some mild pain in my lower right abdomen and it is getting more and more pervasive. I think I might be having an episode of diverticulitis; hopefully my body will be able to fight it off, but if not, I’m sure there are reasonable hospitals in Indianapolis! Whatever it is, I will not let it (as much as I am able) to keep it from interfering with my son’s weekend.
I must say that I would really like to have to deal with only 1 illness at a time. I guess it’s better that it’s diverticulitis rather than an appendicitis.
