    Zeke, move your pictures into Paint program.. or click on them and select Öpen With" then select Paint. They are usually built into computers.. there click on Ïmage" then on "Resize and Skew", you can use the first two boxes, both have 100 in them, to reduce the picture size.. try various sizes from 60% to 30%, depending on the pixels your camera is using.. if it's not the size you want, go to Edit and click on Undo.. go back to pict and try a diff. size.
    also the extra posts whic didn't bring up the pic t. you can go into ëdit" in the top right corner of your posts, one at a time, and scroll down a bit and you will find a block to check for Delete This Message, then Edit Post. They disappear.

    Thanks  Hieid, as of now, I'm getting butterflys  In my stomach.  rofl
    We have things to do and places to go, everyday between now and then,
    I'm trying to crochet dish cloths,  not doing it very good, but it keeps my hands busy.
    I passed the Pre op with flying colors.
    Today I have the 6min walk test.,  don't  know why they call it that when it takes half an hour lol ;o)
    He will fuse C1 thry T8..I will get a Buster Brown hair cut high  on the back and let the hair grow in with the brace.
    They fitted me in the brace which I'll have to wear for 3 months, and I won't be able  to nod or shake my head at all. 
    It,  goes from my jaw, down to mid chest, and in back from middle of head/and down , I think he said to about  t11 or t12. 
    I have to shower with the brace on.
    Living this way for 3 months is going to be a VERY DIFFERENT experience, and I WILL, WILL, do it.
    Christmas blessings to all,  may it be Healthy and Safe.
    God Bless all,
    Rita

    Well, I have my pre surgery work up today, And if the surgery will go on.l l
    I'm feeling better all the time, and am still tiring much too soon.
    Lightning strike damage to my quilting computer and drive is Not getting  fixed yet.  They have had the
    machine for about a month now, can't get a reply to emails, phone messages returned.
    I'll not trust another small personally owned company with much money.
    The saga of things going bad,  he had to replace the water heater, $800.00  I can't believe something that's not made to
    last more than 8 years, costs so much.  We didn't pay over $250 for the last one.  hee hee we had it 9 years.
    Pre-op today so heading out. 
    Prayers and hugs to all,

    Thanks, Heidi...   Prayers are always welcome, and freely given. what the twins do the first time they see each other again.


    I keep praying for Landon. I'd love to be there to see the twins when they first see each other again.  Very precious moments I think. Hugs to all,

    Cagey, I reakize the post you resoponded to is about a week old.
    One of the Dr.s and I were talking about my future, and he said with the  COPD, Plus the Mersa virus , the surgery would be
    delayed to let my lungs heal another few weeks.
    I wasn't being negative, just stating the facts.
    I came home (fnallly - lol ) yesterday, after 10 days as an in-patient.  11 days too long.  ;o)
     I do think once this cervical pain is gone, I will be a bit nmore able to heal quicker.  Pain does tear one down.
      I have been, and will continue to pray that the surgery be His will, and for the staff who will take care of me, that they be of
    His will and choosing.
    I know how negative some of the posts sound.  I try not to mislead, to find a way to soften the words, and some times it just
    doesn't work.
    I see it is well beyond shower time, and I'm needing a short nap, so on into the day.
    This IS the day that the Lord has made!  I shall rejoice and be glad in it!
    Amen.

    Heidi, it  is sooo good to hear of Landon's progress.  I can hardly wait to hear how Scarlett acts when she sees him again!  I'll bet it is sooo sweet.
    The same with Landon's reaction, of course.
    Hugs and of course prayers continue for all.
    Nap time for me.

    It sees there are days when no matter how I try, I can't sound cheerful, and I'm full of complaints.
    Yesterday was one of those.   Today sounds like another, but these really are just comments..
     I've been in here 8 days and they had to put in 7 new IV's, so far.  Not fun, and am running out of
    arm locations. It just won't work, nor will the BP cuff, on the bad arm.
    Were I to be here much longer I'd request a pic.  A lot less mess and pain I'm sure.
    Just to keep this one open, I had to lay flat and not move the arm.  then it was needing slow flow, so by the time It was done
    it was nearly time to start the next.. Within about 10 min.  An hour bag took 3 - 4 hours.
    Ive not had a hot, nor cold meal when cold was needed, since I got here.  Anyone like cold eggs, (?) and fried potato's with
    no seasonings and with them cold?.  Not me!   rofl..  yukko.
    I was coughing so hard, nearly constantly, with no  production, that I refused any more Mucinex.  I feel so much better!
     
    Update:  Dr. was just In and they think  I have finished the IV meds that were needed for the merca and copd.  Thanks to the Good Lord!
    Talking of going home in a day or two after they see how I do back on my regular meds.  If OK, then I go home and learn to loaf a bit.
    A big thanks and continued prayers for all of you.
    HugS, Rita..

    ROFl, yesterday was a real mess.  Didn't get to eat either hot meal, nor the cool one at the right temperatures.
    Now today I can't call out on the phone, to order breakfast, so they brought a diff. phone,  it won't hang up.  LOL
    They say there is a new phone coming up from supply.. hmmmmm should be?
    I did get some decent rest last night, so that helps.
    I have a penthouse view, so I can enjoy watching cars that look like Tootsie cars.
    It looks so pretty out, still having some leaf color, sun is hazy bright but am told it is just plain cold out.
