    It'll be a few days until I get the results. Still, I'm pretty happy about what I'm seeing. The night before last, Genevieve wouldn't let me sleep because she was meowing in apparent pain all through the night. Last night, she didn't let me sleep because she kept climbing on top of me and purring. Of course I'd like to sleep, but I'm not going to complain about too much purring!

    endo'd on the trail this morning. the bike's front wheel slid down a deep rut and jammed and I went down, with my fall broken only by my nose, lower lip and right shoulder. shoulder's still banged up right now.

    My 82 year old mother sustained a broken pelvis yesterday evening. One of those powered lorries used to push huge rows of shopping carts basically ran her over at Walmarts. She's been in the ED since yesterday evening, as they apparently don't have an open room, and has yet to get any pain relief and is on a gurney vs. a bed. WTF, Canada?

    aaiiieeee that's no good. Hope it's just minor bruising and heals up soon.

    ...

    Bailed on my run this morning. Had a 12-miler planned but got one mile into it and was Not Feeling It. It didn't help that I was hacking up this yellow-green crap and huffing at such an easy pace. Might be getting sick-ish. Now I'm tiiiiiired.

    Good to hear, I hope she is sugoi genki soon.

    Meguchan likes to sleep on top of me but at approx 10Kg it can be a bit less than perfectly comfortable, so I have to push her off. This can bring out her evil side and she says "shaaah" (Japanese version of hiss) but then she settles into the crook of my knee or somewhere and is quite happy.

    Wow, Meguchan is 10kg!? (I had to look that up, as I don't have a good intuitive sense of metric weights at all. 22 lb!) Genevieve is only 7 lb (3 kg).

    I think it's funny that "shaaah" = hiss. It's hard for me to imagine someone yelling "shaaah!" and being angry.

    She's been on a diet, not that she's fat, but she was slightly chubby. I would guess she's around 8+ Kg now. She's a large girl. When my wife picks her up it looks very funny as she is quite a small woman, 5'1'ish.

    Oh and when Meguchan says "shaaah" you'd be pretty sure she's angry :)

    Southern Ontario.

    Update: they do not plan to do surgery, have her in a room (FUCKING FINALLY!) and are addressing her pain control. I don't see why it took nearly 24 hours to determine if they were going to do surgery or not. No CT done (of course) and they've had her NPO the entire time in case they decided to operation. I asked her if they had an IV going and she said they did not. Brilliant. 82 year old woman, no food or drink for nearly 24 hours, broken pelvis...would one of our docs like to chime in on odds for dehydration? To top it off they held her warfarin so I hope they address that ASAP before the dehydrated, bed bound woman with a history of DVTs gets another DVT.

    Gods this sounds like a law suit waiting to happen. Positive healing thoughts and energy going out to her and may the Gods watch over, bless and protect her through her time of healing.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts. Nah, no law suit possible over her care. I'm pretty familiar with what's called the "standard of care" there and sadly it's being met. Now, I do have her talked into getting lawyered up and having some words with Walmart.

    I hope she takes them to the cleaners! And feels better soon. How bad's the break?

    Surely the Walmart suit would be a slam dunk? I can't imagine them letting it close to a courtroom, settle with a gagging clause to stop you going to the press?
