I blame the internet

BFF update

My BFF's surgery was moved back to 11 am on Wednesday, meaning she didn't get out of surgery until around 3 pm. By 6 pm, it was obvious she was having trouble, low BP and not being able to come out of sedation, so they moved her to ICU for monitoring.

We've been on pins and needles, bribing her, threatening her, lying to her "Wake up! Keith Urban's here!", but she didn't start coming around until late yesterday evening. Opened her eyes while they were bathing her and was able to blink. This is such a small, small step, but it's in the right direction.

So a little more awake today, BP is stable, and she's communicating with blinks. I don't know when the tubes are coming out so she can talk. Hopefully soon, I know that shit is miserable. The labs are both good and bad, prognosis good, and well, we'll have to see.

The tumor was in the language area, but up against the medulla, affecting her balance, coordination and equilibrium. If either of those things are adversely affected, especially her language, understanding and speaking, and reading, her life is going to be rough. But she'll always be my big sister, my BFF.

So continued prayers, if you will, I so wish I could be in Little Rock with her.

And this is why none of you will ever get to talk to her.

Not quite the same thing

I desperately need both

4 Ingredient Peach Dumplings

See if you can follow me here

First, the Democrats took over the Women's Lib movement; not so much because they care about women, but more as a way of destroying the American family and destablizing minority communities. Once that was accomplished, to further their agenda, they abandoned women in favor of the LGBTQ community. Libbers, in a bid to remain relevant, backed the LGBTQ movement in an "us too!" sort of desperate bid for the Democrats' attention. Now that the Dems have pushed that agenda as far as possible with the legalization of gay marriage, LGBTQ has joined the Libbers behind Muslims, the new Darlings of the Democratic Party. And like the Libbers before them, you'll find the Rainbow protesters holding anti-Islamophobia signs in a desperate attempt to stay in the spotlight.

So, stay with me, I've got a point here. The Muslims DETEST the LGBTQers, and they're not real big on Women's Rights either. Let's face it, you just don't see a lot of Muslims holding anti-homophobia signs chanting "They're here, they're queer, get used to it!" And now the party that's proudly pushing the Islamic agenda here and abroad has nominated not just a WOMAN, but a woman with purported LESBIAN leanings. The Democrats, Champions of Islam who hate gays and not real fond of women, have chosen a likely Lesbian ball-buster to lead them to the White House.

Folks, this is going to get interesting.

I think Bill Clinton should have looked into this.
He's not looking too healthy these days.

Like father, like son

In response to calls for Donald Trump, Jr. to run for mayor of New York City, Anthony "Carlos Danger" Weiner (Huma Abedin's hubby) threatened to unpack his man-bulge from retirement and run against him. Something the Left needs to learn, don't mess with the Trumps on Twitter.

You can't spell "Hillary" without "liar"

A few prayers

My very bestest oldest and dearest friend is having brain surgery tomorrow morning in Little Rock, AR. Yes. THAT Little Rock. I told her the only thing worse would be an Okie brain surgeon, but hey, it is what it is. She's had fogginess, headaches, balance issues, emotional issues, etc, for the last few years and they haven't been able to find what's wrong. Finally did an MRI on her noggin and found a WTF thing. The neuroradiologist is convinced it's a something-or-other glioma, the neurosurgeon things it's a cyst. I think it's her evil twin. I've been telling her this is the best time to do things and blame it on the Evil Twin in her brain, but she's not buying it. Anywhoo, she texted me this picture that's hanging in the apartment she's been staying in this week, says it's growing on her and she want to keep it. I think this is an excellent argument for the Evil Twin Theory. What do y'all think?

Oh yeah, and please put up some prayers for her. I love her to pieces.

I want this to be my last ride

Meanwhile in Philadelphia....

I bet Amb. Stevens had one of these in his pocket

What's the safeword, Bernie?

The Max Effect

When Wirecutter, Miss Lisa, Legal Lucy and CGD came through, I got to meet the infamous CGD. Huge wolfdog. Vicious, snarling, rip your throat out....just kidding.

Charlie was a sweetheart. A love me, pet me, I'm your buddy, I'm your pal. We struck a deal that I'd get custody of Charlie and Lucy should anything happen to WC and Miss Lisa, God forbid. But he's such a sweet, lovable mountain of doggy fun, I'd be happy to be his mom.

Now Max the Terrible was with me during one of our meetings, and I got him out of the van to meet and greet. That lasted all of two minutes; he was all about tearing into Charlie, a dog that could easily have ended him in one bite. But that didn't matter. Max is a Terrierist. Max will mess up your world! Thank God he was on a harness and leash; I scooped him up and tossed him back in the van before WWIII broke out.
