So yesterday we was getting ready to go out, and having heard some thunder in the distance, I had things ready to unplug if the weather worsened.

The sounds of distant thunder are replaced with one sudden loud crack/boom/red flash of light, so things got unplugged then. But while it seemed near by, it didn’t look like there was a direct strike.

After waiting for a bit to see if its safe, we leave to do some grocery shopping.

After a while a family member still at home want to bring the Internet back up, so I tell them what to plug back in and that it’ll take a few minutes for things to boot up .

They message back, No Internet, sounds like they did what they should have. But I can’t do anymore from remote, so it’ll have to wait for me to get back home.

Later I get back home, get something to eat and start to figure out what is wrong and what it’ll take to get things fixed.

After a while I figured out, the modem, the router, and the switch are all dead. And I haven’t had that router or switch for more than 4 months. 🙁

So I dig around, and find an old adsl modem, redo the connections with another switch I had and re-configure a wifi router to handle pppoe again instead of just offering wifi and get Internet stumbling back (and stumbling it is).

Need to replace the adsl 2+ modem, the erlite-3 router, the switch, and the phones. (We will also be getting in line surge protector for the phone line.)

Once we have a new/working phone to test with, we can see if we need to contact the phone company or not to fix the line.

I had so wanted to be done with anything relating to my emergency appendectomy in July, but it seems that is not to be so just yet.

Had an area of my stomach that was bulging out some, in the last week it had gotta worse. We call the doctor and got an appointment, but it was in several weeks, and I felt that this needed to be seen sooner. Managed to get in contact with the doctor’s nurse this afternoon and explained what was happening, and she told me that I should go to the ER.

We were at the ER for about 3 to 4 hours I think, and learned that I have a incisional hernia, and I was told that this was not uncommon with those that have had abscess like I did when I had my appendectomy.

We have a number to call Monday to learn when my next surgery is scheduled, and while I don’t have to have surgery asap, it is best to get this taken care of now before it gets worse.

And, oh boy, can get worse.
