In the hospital until Sunday now.

Tonight will suck. Fluid is BACK but they can't drain it; when they install the permanent catheter tomorrow, they need that fluid to help guide them to make sure they get a good spot. So no sleep for me tonight.

Ugh.

If the hospital has a lending library or you have books on your ipad, go for an old fashioned Robert Ludlum type thriller. I would pull all nighters to finish those anyway. Hurassic Park did it for me too.

Post here. I have been staying up late. If you are around, I'll chat. We can work out a plan of action to inoculate liberal seeds into edog. Should take all night to figure that one out

That is very sweet of you.

One night when I had posted on caringbridge about being scared (shortness of breath), friends of Nick's offered to come over late at night to sit with me so I wouldn't be scared and *alone*.

Good people are everywhere.

Does "permanent catheter" = no more flying? Because I have a $20 Expedia coupon that I have to use by the end of March....

Cardiac surgeon said the "no flying " thing was bull and had no idea why someone would have told me that.

However, I don't know that I will be able to fly alone, as in , navigate an airport all by myself. At the very least, I'd have to arrange for wheelchair assistance start to finish.

Given the picture link you posted on Caringbridge, I had to laugh at calling him an asshat.

Around 4-4:30 this morning I hear this weird, high-pitch whining noise outside. I'm like what the hell is that? I run outside, decide it's coming from a few houses down. Someone is using some kind of power tool or some kind of toy making this loud, strange sound. Way to wake up the neighborhood, jerk.

I'm no economist, but raising import costs seems like the best way to get companies to buy American.

If it costs less to get the item from China, then I would be shooting myself in the foot buying American. Make it more expensive to buy Chinese made and I'll consider American.
Most of my point was that ceramic coffee mugs were made in USA, at the time.....So the greed involved would have been that the profit margin from the American mug, must have been so much less, that the Dairy made a conscious decision to import a cheaper mug from China...we would have to know the exact prices, but at some point in the decision.....it is my contention that greed over nationalism, became a factor in the decision....simple as that.....

And I don't think there was a conscious decision. I think they got the mugs thru a middleman company like Fish Flops.

Either way, maybe this is indicative if the age gap(i don't know how old you are), but I don't have any personal recollection of a time when a company would think about nationalism before profit. In my own personal life, that plays zero role in my purhasing decisions. Price and value for the price are the determining factors.

I simply don't consider it greed to make decisions that best suit your wallet. If I'm shopping for a widget to put in my kitchen, I'm going with the one that best suits my needs at the lowest price. Maximize what I keep on my pocket. Is that greed?
