    About a week ago one of my best friends had a life threatening injury. She hung in there and I did what I could to make her comfortable, but I didn't want her to suffer. I pulled the plug yesterday.
    This didn't kill her, but knocked her out so I could safely do a heart transplant, along with a bit of reconstructive surgery for minor related issues.
    She's safely recovering and seems to not be rejecting any new parts.
    I'll know for sure by Monday afternoon. If she still has no problems by then I will allow her to resume all normal daily routines, including travel. I gave her a test flight and she not only flew but handled the connecting flight with ease, a step forward even I wasn't prepared to see her take.
    In other words, my computer's almost fixed! :D

    Gina, when I was perusing the summary page of new posts...this was all it said. You had me scared...I thought "Pulled the plug? What on earth!"

    Glad your computer is doing better.

    My best friend had a terminal illness a few months ago, so I brought a new best friend and transplanted the usable parts from old friend into that [​IMG]

    Geener,
    Do you have a license to practice?? Did you have the states permission to pull that plug? You just might need the services of a good lawyer, or mabey you could just plead insanity!!! ;)

    My friend H.P. went to the doctor and got some bad news. The doctor told him he was lucky to live to be 95 and that he could go at anytime.

    He died accidently when he fell out of a window in 2000. He was 98. His son X.P., a professional in his field, gave the eulogy. He told the story of a man, the Millennium Man, and his young sidekick, C.D. Rom. The two had played the game when X.P. was in his early stages of life. We'll miss H.P.

    I had a bad dream last nite---seems in the dream that I was a Neurosurgeon--named Doctor Garcia! My assistant was tellin' me that our team had a brain operation posted for 6am the next morning--for me to go home and get plenty of rest--that I was going to be "Chief Surgeon" and he was goin' to assist!!

    Well! I didn't know how to tell the assistant that I ain't never done a brain surgery before--so I just didn't show up for the operation! The patient and his family never noticed! My assistant calls me at 9:30am and said that he decided to go ahead on without me--he waited a full five minutes and I never showed--and that the operation was a huge complete success!

    I kinda figured that if I can be a NeuroSurgeon in my sleep--that surely I can work on a computer while I'm awake!!

    Gina---soooooooooo---if you're lookin' for a good brain surgeon---I'm the maaaaaaaaan!

    Titus 2 dash 1,

    Does this mean I have the "go-ahead" to operate on Gina?? I don't see why she's so upset--I done told her she don't need any more second opinions!! I need to get in that brain and see what I can see! See??!

    And I thought *I* was weird! [​IMG]
    I got my friend functioning, now just gotta deal with her psychological issues, she tends to hold things in so long she forgets them, so I'll have to boost her memory and hopefully that'll be it! [​IMG]

    Gina! Gooooood news! I was able to get the OR for early today!! Don't worry! Ole Blackbird can do what he needs to do without anestitic--just some local numbness around the ears and above the eyebrows!! Nothin' that a Tylanol can't take care of!

    The operation won't take but a "halleujah" second and you can be back to work by late afternoon! Now, I know that all the other neurosurgeons all act professional--but don't be alarmed when ole Blackbird goes into your mind and starts sayin' things like "This gizmo has to go, right now!" and to the nurse assisting, "What's this thing-a-ma-jig doin' in Gina's brain! Goodness!" And then finally, "I believe she'll pull through after all!! I'm just worried that she's gonna pay me for all the good I'm doin'! Nurse! What did you do with her downpayment??"

    Your buddy,
    Blackbird

    I went to the doctor and she gave me some bad news. I told her I wanted a second opinion and she said, "OK, you're ugly, too. (ba-dum-bum) [​IMG]

    I will not pull the plug on my friend, but she has been upsetting me in one little area the last few days, I think I will erase her brain and start again... :eek: :(

    Reminds me of the old joke: A middle aged rancher in pioneer days of old, had grown tired of working so hard to build a beautiful ranch house and huge herd to go with it. So he thought it would be nice to get one of those mail order brides. Well, he sent for one and on the day she was arriving he hitched up his horse and buggy and headed for the nearest train station. After meeting his new bride, he loaded all her bags into the wagon and then headed for their honeymoon home. They had traveled only two miles when the horse stumbled, and the rancher got out and whipped the horse to its feet. He looked at the horse and said "THATS ONE" and got back in the wagon smiled at the woman and continued on their way. They traveled only another two miles when the horse stumbled again, and again the rancher got out of the wagon to whip the horse to its feet, telling the horse "THATS TWO." He took his seat beside his new bride and continued on their way. After traveling nother two miles the horse stumbled for the third time. The rancher got out of the wagon carrying his rifle, he walk up to the horse and shot it right between the eyes, saying "THATS THREE." He turn to the wagon only to hear his new bride yell "why did you do that for, now we have to walk." The rancher turned to the woman and said "THATS ONE."

    Pete
