:-/ Discovering that I’m highly over-qualified for many open positions and under qualified for others…damn!
Anyone have an event coordinator/marketing/pr position for little old moi?! ;-) SF Bay Area?! Come on…I’m a wonderful employee!
Ok, so…for the record: This was an absolutely incredible movie that should be watched by all action fans!! :-D I loved, loved, loved it!!! RDJ was as awesome and hilarious as always!
And, the Marvel movies that are coming in Summer are going to be fantastic!! :-D
Hehe, on a completely non-related spectrum…with my hair growing out and my regular eye makeup, I now have an uncanny resemblance to Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day …and, since I think that he’s absolutely adorable, I don’t mind (no matter that he’s a he)! ;-)
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!!
Hello Everyone!! It has been far too long! :-D But, I hope that you are all doing marvelously!
Today we lost Annette and Margaret…such sad news! Add to this, Roger Ebert dying a couple days before, I just hope that we have reached our #3, don’t you? :-/
It has gotten to that stage, you know, where too much time has passed between talking; where so many things have happened, yet because of the length of time, you have very little to say! ;-) Well, let’s just say that things are completely off for me…I’ve found myself a part time worker, a full time caregiver, a recovering cripple dancer, and a completely broke individual! Fun times, huh?
But, not to dwell…here’s to a fantastic Spring and a beautiful Summer!! :-D Love to you all!!
Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.

Such a sad day when young and innocent children are senslessly killed!
My heart goes out to the children, families, and teachers of Sandy Hook!
I’m so sad that we live in a world where, even a tiny amount of people think that actions like these are necessary or acceptable!
Christmas will always be changed in that community :-(
With the great ups there are also great downs!
The good news:
The Doctor finally gave me the OK to go without my brace! WooHoo! I have a limp, get tired incredibly quickly, and am sore…but I’m fine to wear normal shoes and pants! ;-)
The bad news:
My Mom’s been in the hospital since Friday night. She’s currently in the ICU, on a ventilator, and has a feeding tube. My Sister’s an emotional wreck. We’re having the “big talk” with the doctors tomorrow to decide what’s to be done. We had hoped that she would alright to come off the ventilator and just need to use a BiPap, but her respiratory tests have shown a slow decline instead of increase. So, the result will now be a tracheotomy and a ventilator…unfortunately my Mom is terrified of this (I don’t blame her). The ICU doctors have absolutely no bedside manners, which doesn’t help either. They have been trying to have a DNR conversation with her and us practically the entire time…what the f&*k?!
They also keep telling her that she’ll need to be in a facility for the rest of her life too; where did these people come from? There are tons of people living at home on a vent, it’s just going to be a matter of money. How much for care-giving? According to all my research, Medicare only picks up 100 days of facility living anyways, so after that point my sister and I will be in charge of paying all of the costs anyways.
I wish that we weren’t blindsided by this problem, since not one person in neurology ever said that this was going to be an issue and I wish that this wasn’t happening at the Holidays. Of course I wish that this wasn’t happening to my Mom at all…but you get the cards that you are dealt (unfortunately).
Neurology has been doing tests the entire time to figure out what is going on differently with Mom, but they haven’t found one thing! :-/ So, my point to all of those CMT patients out there…please be aware of the fact that there are breathing issues associated with CMT…but to the degree that my Mom is at hasn’t been documented yet…so just be aware and contact your personal neurologist if breathing, dizziness, confusion, and headaches become a problem!!!
My brace is officially unlocked now! Not off…but I can now bend my knee.
It’s weird, I feel like I look like an idiot, and moving is exhausting…but this means that I am on the mend!! WooHoo!!!
:-D Beware, this story is full of “awwww”, “OMG”, and utter cuteness!!!
