[Note: yesterday was day 0, of course. This is being written one-handed on the laptop integrated keyboard...the FrogPad is theoretically still charging.]
Day 0: the neural block, expected to last 10-12 hours, with reasonable outliers to 6-20 hours, according to what I was told, was administered at about 0730. I began to feel my fingers at around 1230. The pain wasn't that far behind. It was about 1400 before I was able to take my first Percocet. Yeah...spent most of the afternoon in the car sleeping.
Woke at 0830 to phone, in pain, obviously. Took 2 P. Crashed around 1000 until like 1430. Took another when I got up. Rest of the day spent mostly reading blog stuff and such. Have been trying to eat and drink...grapes good, foods hit-or-miss: aye a decent dinner, but lunch of mac&cheese failed. You get the idea.
My BlueTooth Righty FrogPad arrived via FedEx this afternoon. There's an amusing story there about communication that I don't feel like typing right now. Have confirmed it can pair with the laptop (using USB BT dongle), and plugged it in to charge up the battery. Tomorrow I'll start using it in earnest. Setting up key remappings to "oeht" from "hjkl" in important software will be fun. Setting things up to switch between the two elegantly will be . . . an interesting challenge. Ideas on vim bindings or approaches to the config welcome. (Annoyingly, NetHack's UI isn't configurable, and there's no good way to do that in interhack, so I'll probably continue not playing. Although I might make a project of making a patch to allow keyboard configuration in the .rc . . . it would be nice for a lot of things, like yunm instead of yubn for split keyboards.)
Not much else (or too much) to report . . . so that's probably it for now. Possibly more tomorrow from FrogPad, which should be at a healthier height than the laptop (on a writing desk; it's kinda high).
