Thank you to the mystery person who sent me a bright orange sitting up in bed pillow. Thank you to all the people who are giving me their emails for the “how’d the surgery go” mailing list even though they know I already have their email. A special huge thank you to my most devoted Words with Friends friends JohnD, LisaR, and Caro. The distraction is invaluable while experiencing multiple types of sick combined with insomnia. East Coast rules at 4 a.m. PST!
