The hospital IT guy got me online.
I am still very very weak, and can't type well as two fingers are numb (nerve got bruised in surgery; it will heal in time). I am likely to be discharged soon — next day or two I think — but while my progress is real, I have a long way to go.
If I am no longer as weak as a kitten, I would still be hesitant to take on a litter of them.
Basically, if it can't be done sitting or reclining, I still need help to do it. But that will change.
