It's Been A Long Week

....so here is something pleasant, at least more so than what is below the fold.

Things are not good at the moment. The first week of classes and a 2,700 dollar van repair bill would be bad enough, but there are other issues that put those minor problems in stark perspective. 

My Mom is scheduled for surgery in 2 weeks. This itself is not a concern, though her recovery will be about a month. In the lead up to this however they encountered an "issue". Her anurism may be expanding. They are unclear on this because they did not do the dye marker test...because they were not set up to deal with her iodine allergy. 

EVERYONE was informed about the allergy (this has been an issue before), yet they did not take this into account. Given the urgency a delay is most unwelcome, but we should know something in a week when they can get her in to look at the situation. That's where it gets complicated, because if they have to operate, the chances are very good that she will die on the operating table. (This is why they tried to go to Belize last year and why they were making another go of it this winter). So the concern level here is rather high.

It is exacerbated by my sister, who is carrying her second child and is having a very difficult pregnancy, to the extent that they may loose him. It is almost certain that he will have to be delivered prematurely via caesarean, which carries its own set of issues as my sister is a red head and they have a statistically significant tendency to deal wit that surgery very badly. We'll know something about her situation in two weeks. 

In the meantime it is touch and go here.
