Broken Heart

The link above will take you to the blog I started when Mom came to live with me. I am sad to say that God called Mom, and she answered.

Amazingly happy for her that she is now in Heaven with her Mom and Dad, brothers and my dad however, beyond words on my overwhelming sadness.

I miss her so much and don't know how I will live my life without her.

Grief will run its ugly stages, I hope none of them stay too long.  

She was THE best and Heaven is all the more better to have this Angel arrive.

R.I.P. Mom, love you always, miss you dearly.

I may use this or my other blog to help me as I go through this process... so folks, Ming's Things may be resurrected afterall.

Poke Me With a Fork...

I am done.

So long, farewell, ofviedersein, goodbye.

It was good in the beginning but not so much in recent years.

Can It Be Groundhog Day in October?

Another OD,
Another 911 call,
Another chance at life,
Another charge, this time a misdemeanor
Another round of prision... however, slowly interrupted by...
Another Rehab,

Will have to wait another day or so to find out where we go next.

We, hubby and I, are so over this...

Niagara Falls in September

A few more pics from our visit to Canada and Niagara Falls, 
it was quick and amazing and I'd definitely would go again.

The sheer majesty of Mother Nature.

Oh Canada!

Niagara Falls is behind those trees somewhere, I can see her mist!

And the Canadian Falls at night!

More to come...

It was a glorious day
in the mist and spray!

Well at Least I Am Not Claustrophobic...

So, still out on STD since my niece's wedding in early July.

After getting that pretty hot pink cast removed, 
I went to PT for two weeks.

Wrist still not very flexible,
swollen and still hurt.

Last PT appointment was followed by my 
follow up appointment with the Ortho doctor.

My wrist was bothering me during PT and I was glad
I went to doctor appointment after PT instead of vice versa.

As is SOP, I went in and had an X-ray done.

Well, as my luck would have it, there on this film was
yet another broken bone that did not show up on previous images.


Doctor wanted an MRI so he could better see what was going on and...
he signed me out for another month.

Yesterday, I had my MRI and found that I am not claustrophobic,
at least when you go in head first, laying on your stomach and your
injured wrist laid out above your head.

I almost fell asleep since I decided to close my eyes.

Never knew that the top and bottom of the MRI machine were open. 
I thought you went into a closed bottom tube (kinda like the body refrigerators
found in morgues).  

The technician was very pleased with my lack of movement... made for great images.

Waiting for doctor to get results and analysis to find out what the path forward for my injury will be.  Could be anything from recasting to splint to who knows what.

At least I am off until September 29 for now.

Had I known I'd be off from work this long, I would have scheduled a get-a-way.
