Is this week about over yet? Damn this week feels to be just creeping along. Having the entire house down with the chest crud has gotten this Old Girl down to just about the last nerve. Why do boys have to be so much harder than girls when it comes to being sick? I am exhausted…
Did have some great news today though! Our neighbor who has been in a medically induced coma and on a breathing tube since last Wednesday was brought out today and was able to breath on his own when the tube was taken out! He was taken down by pnemonia. He’s still touch and go last I checked in with his wife, but things are definitely looking better. Man, you just don’t expect that from a guy in his early to mid-50’s. Scary.
My cousin’s 18 year old son was brought out of his six day coma today as well. He’s still on oxygen but thankfully the doctors have been able to back him way down from the 100% he had been on. Doctors have no idea what’s wrong with him. This is the third time since this past summer. Praying this time something will be figured out.
Damn, we struggled with a girl who was an asthmatic from before her third birthday, terrible allergies and eczema. There were some tough years when she was young and thankfully she’s outgrown the severity and seldom has any problems anymore. We dealt with the hell of a vehicle accident that had her life flown to the city, spent a night in ICU and a week flat on her back in the hospital and months of healing broken bones, but nothing compared to what Taylor has gone through over the past nine months or so. Can’t even begin to imagine the hell my cousins are going through right now.
Feels as though we are living in such a scary time. I know this isn’t the first time in history, was reading last night about the late 60’s and early 70’s in our country and around the world. Made me think of a lot of the crap going on on our campus’ and in our political environment right now. Remember my high school history teacher telling us time and again, those who don’t learn history are bound to repeat it. I really do fear where our country and world are going. Maybe we all need to take a deep breath and take a chill pill and a nap!
We are all diferent, we all have different belief systems…we need to learn how to work together and get the extremists on every side of the freaking aisle to shut the hell up for a day or two! But, that’s just my opinion.
Now, back to trying to catch up on all the things I’ve gotten behind on while sick.
