    Thumbs up Senator Mark Kirk recovers from stroke and...asks for his Blackberry!

    After suffering a stroke and undergoing emergency surgery, the doctor says he's better than expected, asking for his Blackberry.

    What??? Recovering in a hospital bed after nearly losing his life and the first thing he wants is his Berry??!!!? This addiction runs deep!

    I probably would have asked for the same thing.
    Glad to hear he's OK.

    BlackBerry was my constant companion in the hospital last year. With Wi-Fi, I was able to continue using it while in a CT Scanner. It was with me so much that we even had an X-ray with it in my Johnny pocket.

    They were shooting me a lower region. It was driving the lady tech crazy because her iPhone wouldn't pick up the Wi-Fi, but my 'antique' Style could.

    No, she wasn't, because she had no network signal and couldn't pick up the Wi-Fi. That's what she was growling about. I had network and Wi-Fi.

    Oh, and about Android, Congress and their staffers still mostly use BlackBerry. As do the bulk of agencies that operate within government, from what I understand.

    This story sounds like something out of that Blackberry commercial, where the dr. would go really?

    Well, I don't feel so bad now. A few months back I had my gall bladder removed. The first thing I asked for after I woke up was my blackberry.

    Joke time....I am sure the stroke was caused by the excitement of almost beating his high score on Brick Breaker and after recovery he wanted to make sure the game was at least paused.

    In all seriousness, I hope he is doing well...and just for good measure RIM should send that $2k Porsche Bold

    He wanted to see his bedside mode clock again

    I'd be all kinds of bothered if I woke up and looked to my left or right and didn't see my little clock display from bedside mode. I can't really "feel right" laying down let alone trying to sleep without knowing it's there
