Young man, take off your Nana's thong right now!

So if THAT didn't get your attention, I don't know what will.

I think those grandsons of mine are just...odd.

Just so you know, I am NOT your typical grandma. I like convertibles. I have a couple of tattoos. My hair is red on occasion. I like to belly dance.

After a Brief Commercial Interruption

Well, at least she was given some pain meds and something for nausea. They offered the guy in the next bed either Dilaudid or Vicodin. If he had taken the Vicodin, I would have offered to take the Dilaudid off their hands! I had to have it once and WOOHOO! Made me a happy camper. I felt like "Pain? I still got it but I don't care!"
It is MIDNIGHT, ya'll! This coming from someone who thinks staying up until 10 is stretching it.
So anyway, back to this whole Lupus deal. I don't know anything about it, but I do know it's from her dad's side! A bunch of his family has some type of auto-immune disease. My other daughter has Renauds (sp) and Fybromyalgia (sp redux). Ex hubby has rheumatoid arthritis. His adorable, wonderful, amazing Grandma Williams had it bad.
MY family is a bunch Long Livers. I mean close to a century old, folks!

I need to learn more, but what I have read scares me.

All in all, I am very worried.

What Exactly IS a Moment to Breathe???

So, nearly a year ago I swore I would start blogging the moment I got time to breathe. So I guess that just shows how busy I have been or how hectic my life has been.
Or it might just show that I should join the Procrastinator's Club. It seems I can't get around to it.
Anyway, as wild as my life has been these past 2 years, it's just getting more eventful. My daughter and her three sons (who by the way have been blessed with both good looks AND intelligence) have been living with me since her separation from her %$#%& ex-husband.It's been tough the past couple of years, but bless her heart, she is going to school to fulfill her dream of being a nurse.
Only now I wonder if that will happen. She has Lupus. We have know about it for few months now. I worry about how she will be able to be a nurse with this disease.
I am sitting in our local hospital ER waiting for her brain scan to come back and after that, will be waiting for the results of her spinal tap. She has been here before, but this is the first time she has had to be brought up here in an ambulance.
Scary for her, scary for her mom.
Damn, I hate whiny-assed people, and I don't want to become one. Maybe this will be cathartic for me.
