Mom headlines the VU webpage

today we have a bit of fun for a change! Mom is currently headlining the Vanderbilt University homepage. and yes, she really is that dynamic in daily living.

also, my brother has been released from the hospital. we are not sure yet what is going on with him, but stroke, heart attack and brain aneurysm (i.e. actively dying) have all been ruled out. (thank you-know-who.) now the questions remain: did the episodes truly resulted from hypertensive encephalopathy or is the hypertension a red herring? why is Brian having fairly marked hypertension when he was normotensive just a few months ago? is Milla Jovovich as badass in person as she is in the movies? these questions and more to (hopefully) be answered in our next episode...

this quote, courtesy of my brother, after a long discourse between his doctor and me regarding SOTA (state of the art) for hypertension and lightheadedness/presyncopal episodes:
"Your sister sure knows an awful lot about human medicine for a veterinarian."

Wow! Your Mom cuts an impressive figure.
I'm so sorry to see what you've had to deal with lately. I don't know what to tell you except, don't stop now. You are so close and have worked so hard. This is something you can do, so do it!
There are lots of things that happen in life that you can't change, don't let the ones that you can change just slide by.
I have a friend who's gran used to say, "consider yourself hugged" when she couldn't be around to do it in person. So, consider yourself hugged.
