oooh, my storybook lover, you have underesimated my power, as you shortly will discover


  • Mom update:

    It looks like my mom is going to be discharged tomorrow. They did find the source of the bleeding when they did an endoscopy and they've already fixed it (I think they do something like cauterizing). She says she's feeling a lot better, her cardiologist says she's doing fine cardiac-wise, so all seems good right now. I'll be going home with her and either spending one or two nights.
