more hospital talk  
Well, we got the good word that the lumps on K's niece were not cancer or leukemia, just a staph infection, which they were able to catch in time. If she didn't get infected at the hospital where she was born, as we suspect, then she might be horribly allergic to something in their house, so drama is likely to continue. We're not sure when they're going to let her home.

My brother's surgeon ended up performing a triple bypass on him yesterday, harvesting veins from one leg, one arm, and his chest to replace the occluded ones. The surgery went well, but my parents are pretty worried that he's going to try and rip tubes and wires out of himself if he's not doped up enough. The sight of him after surgery was apparently pretty horrific as his youngest daughter, who has barely left his side since he went in, could bare to look at him. Poor kid. I can handle seeing a cracked chest, but hopefully the ventilator tube will be out when I get there to visit tonight.

I'm having a lot of dreams lately, but my sleep hasn't been good at all. I wake up feeling more tired than when I went to sleep.

You can get a staph infection because of an allergy?

I'm glad the surgery went well.

My information is third-hand, but that seems to be what they're saying.

I'm also glad to hear the surgery went well. Now for the long recovery.

The baby...isn't that an odd dilemma? How are they going to determine if she's allergic to something at home? I guess they'll have to send her home, and try again? Whew. That would not be a pleasant situation to be in, as a parent.

Yeah, I can't even imagine how that's going to work.

Great news about K's niece!

I hope your brother's recovery goes well. Sorry to hear about your niece.

I wish I had something pithy to say about your dreams. I rarely remember my dreams.

I totally know what that 'skateboard' is made of.

It's a sanded bit of 'base' from a scooter, and has rollerskate wheels (the skates you 'key'd' on) put on it.

and they're noisy and metal and this is a really good wayback! :)
