My sister's in the hospital about to get emergency surgery due to a ulcer that ate through her stomach . Hole doesn't seem to be that big, but it's still very worrying.

emergency surgery
This is always bad. Especially in that it's exactly the kind of thing worrying will do no good for.

It's always pancake day, if you believe in yourself.

Except during Lent, unless you want to go to Hell.

The doctor is concerned I may have schitzophrenia, "or something of that nature."

I get tested (Start the tests?) on Friday.

Isn't "schizophrenia" about as broadly meaningless as "autism"?

Further developments: The test results on Friday can determine if I suddenly owe people several tens of thousands of dollars, as well as immediately lose my only existing cash flow.

Slightly more worried now.

I spent all night last night in the hospital. They weren't able to figure out what was wrong with me, but the most likely culprit is a gall stone. I guess I had to pay some price for losing 60 pounds in five months. :(

Just some perspective on what it felt like for anyone who has never had this happen before: they gave me a shitload of morphine on an IV and I was still in some pretty unbearable pain. It's the kind of pain that makes you nauseous it's so intense. I really hope this never happens to me again.

Yeah, I had a friend who had gallstones.  It was ruinous.  Solution is to get the gall bladder out, though - as much as his boss tried to push for it to avoid the insurance hit, you don't want to just try to make do.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

My brother apparently tried to run an ex-marine off the road. Or he tried to run my brother off the road. Or the guy was a methhead.

My brother's having a crazy breakdown over everything.

I went to the dentist yesterday! After taking an x-ray and poking around my teeth for a while, he determined that I have an infection underneath one of my molars. That explains the excruciating pain I experienced over the holidays: the nerves in that tooth were slowly dying! It also explains why the pain went away after a week or so: the nerves all died. :whoops:

Now I have to get a root canal. ::(: On the plus side, since the nerves are already dead, it shouldn't hurt so much!

...right?

In my experience, properly anesthetized root canals don't hurt a bit. They're quite uncomfortable afterward, though...

My last one was over in 15 minutes and completely painless.  ...and then the anesthetic wore off while I was sitting there with an open cavity waiting for the crown to bake.  Whoops!

Still would have been okay if I hadn't been suddenly called on to give a presentation to the VP when I snuck back into work to collect my laptop and go home to sleep.  So uh... take the day off, and you'll probably be fine.
