This too shall pass - but give me a valium anyway
Wednesday, July 19, 2006

#2 has Marfan's and a severe case of pectus excavatum (look them up its lovely). He has to have surgery NEXT WEEK. Yesterday we spent the afternoon getting an echocardiogram. ON A 15 YR OLD BOY. I am waiting for the results and a date and time for the surgery.

Got home last night from the Dr's office and checked my email. My friend Sarah had kindly taken my beautiful Golden Retreiver into her home when we went back to the UK. I didn't take him back when we got home, cause they had become attached. Any way, he died yesterday. Its funny but of all the crap that is going on, that is upsetting me the most.

My mom has to have colon surgery next week.

My year is looking great. The week before and after my birthday look to be just peachy and then divorce court on the 4th of August.

Anyone know how I could mainline Tequilla? Or perhaps get an industrial sized tub of Valium?

Thank you to those that have sent me kind thoughts. It is appreciated. I just like to whinge.

Wow...definitely time for a visit to Margaritaville (if ya like margaritas). If ya don't, I am sure one of us can find ya a Tequilatown to suit your needs;)

Gotta say, had never never heard of pectus excavatum...but with this new information, I wish both you and #2 the best of luck and better health from this surgery. Even though I don't have kids, I can vividly imagine the kind of debilitating worry and stress such a diagnosis would generate:(

And have faith, FMF...you will be victorious in your battle against the bigamist hundan you had the extreme displeasure of being married to;)

Oh...my...gentle...Jesus...this was HOT!

Cowboy...I salute thee and turn a deep shade of green in envy, cuz you have definitely taken Kaynara loving to a whole new level! I really can't wait to see how you top this chapter with Inara's response to this moment of pure intimacy from Kaylee:D

OMFDieties! *hugs FMF*

I am sorry to hear about your dog.

I...*shakes head* *sighs*...words can't describe how badly I feel for you and #2. It's been forever since my sister had to go through similar testing (she had cardiomyopathy). All my best wishes for both of you getting through that (and your *snarkinsnarkin* HMO realizing that it's not cosmetic so that they pay for it).

I hope things go well for your mom and her surgery.

I'm looking at your August 4th this way -- you'll be losing a 100+ pounds of bigamist go-se (and btw, he's the bigamist, you're not).

Since I can't get my hands on any valium, here's some liquor-filled chocolates instead. *hugs FMF again*

P.S. Whinge? *looks around* Where? *peers* I only see a woman who is a great mother to all her kids who happens to be overloaded through no fault of her own. *hugs*

I feel for #2. I've got the same thing. Now I can't take my shirt off in public! Haven't decided if I'll get the bar or broken...anyway, that ain't why I'm here.

*friendly hugs*

I looked it up and will be keeping my fingers crossed that #2 feels better soon.

If you believe in past lives can you please tell us exactly what yours did to deserve all this crap. This is making me lose all faith in the concept of Karma which I relied on heavily in my bullied years.

I'm trying to send a bottle of vodka through the web but it keeps bouncing off my comuter screen.

*Hugs FMF*

Nope, didn't think it would work. I'll post it elsewhere for you.

*Dr Mav arrives, assesses the situation.
"Nurse, get this woman an IV, STAT!"
*Nurse rushes over with Cuervo IV*
FMF's shoulders lower, smile comes on her face, as tequila enters system.
"Ahh...much better."

Mental Hug, FMF. You've certainly taken hold of the short end of the stick, huh?
Don't know if this image will post, but this is for you:

Oh the poor boy, the condition sounds very distressing. I can't understand why they consider it only cosmetic! The good news though is that he is going to have surgery, and it'll make a big difference to him.

Your dog was very fortunate to have someone who thought of his welfare and wants before their own, and you know that he had a really good life.

It's unfortunate that it's all coming at once... at least there is so much going on that you can't dwell on any one thing for too long? (Sorry, I know the POllyanna thing can get a bit annoying, feel free to scream!)


Here, let me pour you a double shot of tequila to help wash down the valium
