Good news & Bad news

The good:

I spoke to our pediatrician today (well, one of her partners who relayed the message from her) and we're semi-unquarantined.
We are now allowed to venture out. We should avoid large crowds and anyone with a cough. Try to keep his carseat covered when we're out and encourage hand washing practices.
Basically we need to stay germ-phobic, but we're paroled!


The bad:
Pretty sure I fried my laptop this morning.
I managed to dump about 2oz of breast milk into it. I literally had to pour the milk out of the keyboard.
It currently won't power on. I'm praying that when it dries out it'll work again, but if not, we're screwed.
I'm using the hubby's desktop for the time being, but computer sharing doesn't work well in our house. And being tied to the office doesn't work well with a small child.

If you could think good electrical thoughts for us, I'd appreciate it.

In the mean time, updates may be sparse. And pictures non existent since I don't even know how to upload pics from my camera to the husband's computer. I always use the memory card reader on the laptop.

Oh dear... YAY for getting out and boo for the laptop. I have done the same and here's how I "fixed" it: Turn the open laptop so that the keyboard is face down (but elevated. You might have to prop it on a book or something. Let it dry for at least 12-24 hours. It should work after that, but if it doesn't... rip.

Michelle covered off how to dry it. Check your house insurance, often they will conver the cost.

That's great that you're able to get out of the house finally. What a relief! Sucks about the laptop. You can also take it to Best Buy or a computer place/guru person to see if they can salvage the hard drive.
