So…how *you* doin’?
I’m not dead, I’m just busy. Or exhausted. Mom’s been in the hospital again, having a hernia-repair done. There were some fumbles with her blood thinning meds, and then with her antibiotics, when one gave her ‘Red man syndrome.’ The symptoms? Your face grows very red, a fever develops, and everyone freaks out. 9,9
Then her gallbladder started acting weird after the surgery. The docs don’t want to go back in so soon, so…they waited to make sure it wasn’t going to tear her apart from within (okay, more like, ‘make her digestive system pout and quit working’) and sent her home. Tonight’s her first night home in a week.
Meanwhile, I’m busy with school and work. Two of my classes are very heavy on reading, and I’ve been barely keeping up with that. I’ve been playing fast and loose with my schedule at work to get in my hours (eventually) and still make it to class. Gonna have to talk with the boss about new hours.
My spirits are okay. I’m bummed every time I remember Jamie (a local fur-friend) is leaving the state, but he’s around a bit longer. Have fun with the otter while the otter’s there, right? :K)
T’night Mystee, Swiftwing, Jamie, Soltris and I saw ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ and I laughed and cried. Absolutely brilliant work on that faun, but the gratuitous torture, sadism, and murder kind of, uhh, caught me off guard. The one preview I’d seen for the film (months and months ago) made it look like a movie in the ‘Legend’ set. Fantasy. Not…well, the tragedy with fantasy elements this was.
