My mom is in the hospital right now. She was admitted yesterday with what they thought was a pinched nerve in her neck. My mom can’t take oral anti-inflamatories, they react poorly with her system, which exacerbates both her heart condition and her respiritory condition, so they admitted her to the hospital where they could give her intravenous anti-inflamatories and monitor her.
Today they discovered that it wasn’t a punched nerve, but rather a number of blood clots in her lungs. Which is pretty dangerous under the best of circumstances, and is considerably so for mom with her heart. They’re weening her off the morphine they had her on which is rough in her system and now have her on blood thinners and other agents to prevent the formation of more clots. The pre-existing clots they have to wait to let them dissipate on their own. Hopefully.
You now all know as much as I do.

I’ve given it a great deal of thought and it really seems to be the most sensible thing to do. What has rationality and logic gotten me anyway? They haven’t brought me anywhere that I want to be. So why make sense? Why not be eccentric and daft? Continue reading ‘I shall go mad.’

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,500 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

It will come as no surprise to most of you that my life, such as it is, hasn’t been on a very good trajectory for quite some time. I’ve made numerous plans to remedy this, many of which you can find on this very blog. The thing about plans is that they’re easy to make but they’re hard to implement. There are a lot of factors in my life, both internal and external, that make it difficult to implement change. That’s not an excuse, at the end of the day I’m responsible for everything I’ve said or done, or not done as the case may be. Continue reading ‘So this is me at the end of 2011′
