Despite some rumors to the contrary I AM still around, just a little bit worse for the wear! :(

Right after my last post I woke up the second morning thereafter thinking that it would be really great to breathe without sounding like a damn old steam locomotive.  A quick trip to the Doc and congratulations, you are the proud owner of an Upper Respiratory Infection (URI).  Now I have had URIs before but nothing like this mother!!

It seems that my previous excursions into the medical world had left my immune system slightly compromised, like knocked down in the dirt!  Hello Hospital Bed!

Now only a couple of days with IV tubes in both arms pushing high volumes of exotic antibiotics and I am back at home!  Of course at home flat on my back with a shitload of pills three times per day!  This was a large enough volume of crap that I had to force myself to eat to try to get some strength.

Now anybody out there know the effect on the body of REALLY GOOD antibiotics?  For those who do not let me just say they sent me home to save on their toilet paper bill!!!   I actually caught up on my reading while sitting for long periods upon the throne.

I have gotten to the point where they have dialed down the dosage rate and my innards are starting to return to normal and I am regaining some strength.  So hopefully I can get some output going as soon as I quit trying to set the worlds record for hours asleep.

BLEEECCCHHHH!!!

Keep Calm and…

Coonass, the erstwhile artist of the Jarhead comic Broken and Unreadable-(which hasn’t
updated in a coon’s age), also has a Deviant Art account. Below is just one sample of
his deviant renderings. Just the thing for the likes of the unwashed deviant knuckle-draggers
that might slouch-n-stumble into this joint.

So hop on over there, and eyeball the artistry, it is really quite good.

(no cheating by googling the pic! Ya either know or ya don’t!)

Ebola Airborne?

The
Public Health Agency of Canada
has a
Pathogen Safety Data Sheet on Ebola
,
with the following disturbing information under the heading “Mode of Transmission”.
 

Humans may be infected by handling sick or dead non-human primates and are also at risk when handling the bodies of deceased humans in preparation for funerals, suggesting possible transmission through aerosol droplets (2, 6, 28). In the laboratory, infection through small-particle aerosols has been demonstrated in primates, and airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated.(emphasis mine)

 
Wellll, guess what, cupcake! Humans ARE primates!
That ‘strongly suspected’ is a nice way of saying ‘we know it, but can’t quite prove it’.
This is a big red flag people, take note of it.

primevil had a good on a few weeks back about Redneck Medical Terms  that got me to thinking about my current Bullshit experiences.

Colonoscopy –  My Cousins Roto-Rooter franchise is having hard times so we gonna let him do double duty!

Endoscopy – We got no fucking idea so we are going to give the clinic next door some money.  What the Hell it might work.

Radiation Oncology  – No you will not glow in the dark but, if the place you work has a body field scanner you are fucked.

Chemical Oncology - We have no idea if this shit will work but we make a ton of money off of it!  BTW you will feel like shit only you will not be able to take one!

Support Group - Don’t have a clue, told those fuckers where to get off.

Group Consult - Where more than one Doctor at once can tell you that they don’t have a fucking clue!

 

OK, having got all that the fuck out of my system I can get on to the update portion.  Now if I could just get the last of the Chemo out of my system I just might be able to think straight again.  Seriously folks that shit is like living in a fucking cloud of total bullshit.  The Docs were totally amazed that I drove myself to every fucking day of treatment and I was kind enough to NOT tell them that it took every fucking thing I had (drive was 90 min each way BTW).

I have no idea whats going to happen next as there is to be a several week recovery period followed by yet ANOTHER MRI to figure things out after I have some time to rebuild.  I am about a week and a half into that and am just back to where I can think straight and do something besides sleep about 20 hours a day.

My problem now is to try to get my sleep cycle into something resembling human as my circadian rhythm would make me a perfect choice for the midnight shift.  I never got this far out of whack when I worked mids for 18 straight months

At any rate hopefully I can start doing some stuff around here and take the load of off primeveil who has kept this place going.

Just as a matter of note, getting old sucks!
