chronicles of the chronically (and voluntarily) bedridden

what, me freak out? never!

05 May 2006
ack! video's playing at 745, interview at 920.

gah. i really want to kick the bed. i guess when they were fixing my call light they not only disconnected all of my light switches from my bed, they also disconnected any and all TV controls, AND the speakers. so someone could turn it on just fine, i just can't hear anything from my bed. suppose i should have looked into it last night or something. oh the IRONY. the one time i want to watch TV, and i can't.

it looks like ly is finding me a cart so she can wheel me into another room to watch TV (for once)...

i keep seeing random snippets of myself on TV... EEK. -grin-

ok, leaving now....... squeeeeee!

ok, NOT leaving now. we're having issues finding a TV with both sound and CNN.....

argh. -waits impatiently-

  • Hey Erin,

    I just saw you on CNN with Soledad and Miles O'Brien. Congratulations on your new found fame. It would seem that you and your boyfriend are going to be the talk of the town.

    I wish I could have stayed in bed this morning.

    Good luck to you in your bedrest study with NASA.

  • I saw the story about you on CNN just a few moments ago. I'm working on reading through some of your older entries in this blog, but am interested in what I've read so far. I really respect the work you are doing, and I'm pleased that NASA is continuing their research into further space exploration. Keep up the good entries, I am looking forward to reading more!

  • how lucky are you doing a study for NASA. I just saw the report on CNN. I have been a space program nut since I was a goofy kid in the 70's. NASA can come up with some crazy studies and contraptions. We have learned and benifited from a lot of the programs studies. This study I'm sure will have a major impact on several things.

  • Hi Erin! Just saw your interview on CNN! You have just about the best job in the world! All the best!

  • Ha. I, like everyone else, just saw your interview on CNN. (I work on Capital Hill so we have CNN on all the time.)

    I, like everyone else, am soooo jealous! All I wanted to do this morning was stay in bed!

    (The grass is always greener.)

    Your blog is very fun! I'm sorry I guess that there will only be about ten days left of it.

    I went to Space Camp when I was a little girl. We got hung in weightless cords. But only for about 1/2 an hour at a time. It was fun!

  • Erin, we just watched your interview in science class! The kids thought it was way cool. They want you to come in. I told them you might not be able to walk for awhile, and one of the girls said, "That's ok, we'll just wheel her in!" We had a great discussion about space travel and muscle deterioration. Hope yours isn't too bad!
    Great interview! Hang in there! (wink)

  • Erin,
    I spent the morning looking through your blog entries. I can't imagine laying around all day-not able to get out of bed!! I was without a job for about 5 months and alomost died from the boredom and depression that came with it. You are doing a great job and should be very proud of yourself!

    Here's to the final stretch

  • I posted a large screen grab on the NASA Watch server at http://images.spaceref.com/news/2006/erin.jpg

    I am hoping there will be an announcement at the opening session of ISDC here in LA this morning.

  • As a science geek, knitter, blogger and HIV research administrator - thanks for participating in a trial. It's so important. Here's to suffering for science.

  • hello, i saw you on CNN. I think you are a very impressive and determined person and you are very enduring for staying so many days suspended above the ground!

  • Hi, Erin!

    I set my VCR to record the show this morning, but haven't had a chance to watch it... on my lunch break, I went to CNN.com and you were one of the featured videos on Space/Science section (why isn't "Science and Space" on the CNN home page quick links anymore? You have to scroll way down to the bottom to get to the good stuff!)

    For those of us who couldn't watch it live: CNN Science and Space

  • I don't have the cable with me now but I will send you a photo - of the screen grab I did of you on CNN this morning - shown in front of the ISDC a few minutes later on a giant screen. You received a hearty round of applause - also recorded - and I will ship that file to you next monday when I get home and drag it off of my iPod. Needless to say a thousand overt space enthusiasts appreciate what you are doing.

  • Just saw your spot on CNN - I was excited to see you knitting. Knitting=love. So then, I in the Knitty Chat room on IRC while poking around your blog, and was surprised you had a Knitty button! Anywho. Small world, or something. ;) I shared my discovery with the girls in there. Come visit sometime! We have fun. :D

  • Hang in there Erin -pun intended-.

    I give you lot's of credit, and maybe you will inspire other young people to get involved in space and the sciences.

    God Speed!
