The Big DumpTruck

Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

NaNoWriMo 2009

7000 words in, I finally have a plot. Or at least a purpose. And characters. The full plot will probably not reveal itself until the end of the month, meaning I’ll have a lot more work to do to get it into a finished state. Which, based on history, I will never do. I’m writing about my kid, his friend, and his cousins. It is fiction, I swear. My niece does not own a store that only sells cups and saucers. She’s 9 – owning a store like that is years in her future.

I don’t know why I keep doing NaNoWriMo, but I’m at the point where I almost have to do it, or I’ll feel bad about it. So I give up a few hours of my November, no big deal, right?

So while I’m working on this, please send snacks.

    I loved your blog to Oprah. I too like you suffer from Addisons' which happened when a surgeon thought I might need a blood transfusion. Now I went into the hospital with a Deep Vein Thrombosis. Dick Cheney went to the hospital at the same time as I did and they kept him one day for observation.

    The original doctor that admitted was going to do the same for me and had already written my discharge. She went on vacation the next day. The other doctor reminded me of a dump truck driver. I have the deepiest respect for dump truck driver's because they work long hard hours, drive over rosds thst could knock yout prostste loose. So believe me when I say this doctor met none of your criteria, I'm not sure he even when to medical school.

    To get bsck to the story and make my point. He had already used all my IV sites (2) and decided to go for the femoral atery for a site there. ( I am also paralyzed). He takes a scapel out of his pocket and proceeds to wack away. Three or four times. I proceed to bleed out for 20 hours, no vascular surgeon to repair the artery or vein both femoral. After 24 hrs you are pushing the daisies. Now I am the proud owner of addisons' original original, comes with cataracts, thyroid problems,diabetis (with insulin)and many too many added pounds due to steriod medication to talk aboout. I have been told if I want to live I have to take this for the rest of my life. So no choice here. Let of hear some of these brush painted centerfold's and run way model complain just a little. You may have gotten yours by abusing your body by not eating. I am in a wheelchair and I could not help what a doctor did to me that now makes me fat. Some airlines even want to charge me extra because I touoh the other seat. Keep it up Jody. Lets go see Oprah.
