Gir!

Last couple of days

Monday I hung my new pictures at work and went shopping at lunchtime at Big Lots where I picked up a neat little wall shelf for my tchotchke. After work I went to Target and bought a toaster for the office (got tired of waiting for them to buy one, and dammit I want my toasted bagel in the morning!) When I got home I talked with Mom who was feeling a little better and wanted to get into the hospital to see Grandmom on Tuesday. Quincy was home studying so I spent the rest of the night sending out more invitations and follow-ups to G'con guests.

Tuesday I finished my decorating with the shelf and the French memo board, and everyone keeps saying I did a good job. Quincy called in the morning and told me he failed his test - poor boo. :( (On the plus side he knows why he failed and hopes to do better when he takes the next higher level test.) Since he had the rest of the day off he came over and we had lunch at Flame Broiler (yum!) and then walked around window shoppig before I went back to work. In the afternoon I sent Yudi the agenda for the Executive Committee meeting because I had G'con things I needed to take care of and needed him to run the meeting (I hope it went ok). Q went out with Yeris, and after I finished what I needed to do for the con John and Daniel made dinner (very yummy!), and afterwards Bill, David, Ben and Adam came over and we played Fluxx, Epic Duels and a new game, Curses.

This morning Lynda called me and said that my grandmother's doctor told my mother that he doesn't think she's going to be going home from the hospital, that even if she gets well (and evidently things are starting to go wrong - kidneys, etc.) she's going to need more intensive care going forward.

Sigh. Don't need another death in the family right now.

Not so bad after all

Some good news - turns out Grandmom might not be as bad as her doctor had reported. Seems Mom only hears the bad news, but doesn't stop to look at the big picture. When my sister talked to the doctor yesterday he basically said they thought they had found blood clots, so they put her on a blood thinner, but it turns out they were scar tissue from either bronchitis or emphyzema my grandmother had years ago. So now they're saying she has bronchitis, and they have her on a blood thickener now. Unfortunately, her arm has been bleeding quite a bit due to the thinner, so they had to give her plasma. I called her today and she sounded mentally ok, but really exhausted. Mom called later and she sounded stable, but it's not easy for her (thankfully she's over the cold she had). Still, Grandmom's 91 - any reason to be in the hospital is a serious one. So we just have to wait and see, but I wouldn't be surprised if she got better but we had to (once again) seriously discuss putting her into some sort of community or assisted living facility (or, by some miracle, all my cousins shape up and one of them moves in with her).

Meanwhile I had a productive day at work, and now I'm having a productive evening getting G'con stuff done. So much to do! I'm a bit overwhelmed, but I'm getting a handle on it thanks to my very on-the-ball team. Yay team!

(no subject)

Did you ever just want to FUCKING THROW YOUR FUCKING GODDAMNED COMPUTER OUT THE FUCKING WINDOW AND WATCH IT FUCKING BREAK INTO A GODDAMNED FUCKING MILLION PIECES?!?!?!

I kinda felt that way tonight.

Fucking internet connection.

Anywho, John and Myke gave the A-OK for Quincy to move in the last two weeks before he moves to Maryland. Yay! I get to spend quality time livin' with my honey. :)
