Mom Update

Clown moms are special

Clown moms are special

During her stay in the hospital for pneumonia they discovered a mass on one of Mom’s kidneys. After consultation with several specialists it was decided that the kidney would be removed. Mom was given the choice of UCSF or UC Davis as the place for the surgery. They are both top-quality teaching hospitals. She chose UC Davis.

Yesterday Mom had her pre-op exam. Next Wednesday she goes in for a laparotomy. If all goes well she should be home by Friday.

Because she is a retired public employee Mom has excellent insurance in addition to Medicare, so medical bills won’t be a problem. Hopefully this will be Mom’s last adventure for a while. This past year or so has been “interesting.”

This is an open thread.

  1. Thankfully my older sister is taking the lead on this one. She has more experience and better resources for dealing with this stuff. When Mom had her heart attack last year my sister was down in San Diego with her husband’s family on a 2 week vacation.

    • Apparently Kaine had a little too much caffeine before the debate last night.

    • Via Don Surber:

      Someone must have told the Virginia senator he needed to always be on his front foot in the debate, always be the aggressor. It didn’t work. Kaine started the debate talking so quickly and trying to load so many Trump attacks into every answer that it made it virtually impossible to grasp any one attack. In the middle of the debate, Kaine seemed to relax into it — delivering an effective attack on Trump’s comments on women. But that Kaine was the exception, not the rule. When he wasn’t trying to stuff 10 pounds of attack in a five-pound bag in his answers, he was relentlessly interrupting Pence. Every single time Pence started to level an attack against Hillary Clinton, Kaine immediately began to talk over him. I’m not sure if that was on purpose or not, but it didn’t come across well — at all. One glaring example: As Pence was recounting his personal experience on Sept. 11, 2001, Kaine interrupted to say, “I was in Virginia.” Um, okay. Not a good look.

      Prince George is much cuter 😉

      • taw46 says:

        Haha, that is what I thought of when I saw Kaines’s photo!

        • DeniseVB says:

          Isn’t Kaine a little old to think smooshing your face into glass is a good look ? 😛

          My old Virginia Dem pals from Kaine’s Gov campaign days are shocked “WHAT HAS THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN DONE TO TIM KAINE??” Back in the day, he really was a sweetheart, though not our best Gov, this is definitely not that guy.

          Hopefully this is good sign that the more traditional Dems will vote Trump to take their party back.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            Kaine has always been rather like very weak tea and a bit of a jerk. For someone like him, they are swallowed whole and absorbed, unable to resist the call of the Sirens Song from Inside the Beltway.

            His countenance has become a caricature of itself. Almost as if the elites had a Dorian Gray style painting done of him but at this point the painting’s spirit has taken over the empty shell that was left behind and the distorted human being that had been imprisoned is now visible for all to see.

            I really do think that even half way decent people just loose themselves if they are not inherently strong when dealing with the scum that has become so pervasive in the cesspool that has been created by the global raiders.

    My best wishes for a safe and uneventful procedure and a speedy recovery for the Mother of Klown

  4. Anthony says:

    CNN does their best to deflect any questions about everything and anything to do Hillary Clinton during interview, continues to hammer away at Trump Taxes. Eric Trump displays an enormous amount of restraint

    • lateblum says:

      She “recalls” many things in her speeches and in the “debate”, though. Could it be the earpiece or teleprompters assist her memory? She honestly scares me. I have been #NeverHillary for many years after being a strong supporter in 2008. I should now add another hashtag. Perhaps it should read #DangerousHillary or #HillaryScaresMe or #HillaryBadForAmerica.

      • Lulu says:

        There is also the issue of automatic legal parsing coming out of her pie-hole. She doesn’t remember “joking” because she wasn’t joking. I always look for legal parsing out of both Hill and Big Dog.

        • blowme0bama says:

          Yup. As demonstrated with “the definition of is”, you’d have to do a thorough examination of either of them to find out the truth concerning anything. That’s assuming they wouldn’t just lie when you finally exhausted their parsing. Heh… yeah, that was a dumb assumption. They’ll lie about everything.

        • lateblum says:

          Always. And I do not believe that she was joking. I think she was hoping to send some kind of signal to her thugs. The ones who were watching Comey.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Probably the worse thing I fear of a Hillary presidency, is 4-8 years of blaming right wing conspiracies and Republicans for anything she screws up or doesn’t go her way. I don’t know how this race is so close. Trump won’t be perfect, but it’ll sure be fun to find out how he makes heads roll and gets stuff done.

    So sad before I got to the part where you said she has great insurance I was thinking money instinct. So wrong. My dad has COPD. My parents spend a ton of money on insurance. That puke. Kin to the Clintons said old poor people should just die. My dad was in his world spent. Time to expire. He is my hero. Such a good guy. He coaches softball with his iron lung. Rides his scooter to every game.
    Paige has issues. Her dad ate a bullet with her in the next room. Her mom just left with no goodbye. Just gone kid is ten. Shuffled back and forth in foster care. Sheives nos with her grandparents. Grandmother is 67 husband is 38. She’s over a lot. I don’t understand how to talk to her. She says things like I am fixing up my basement for when my mom comes back. I am useless. So I go to getva bottle of water at 3 am. My dad is making smores and talking to this little girl. He just talks with her. Not at her. They just hang at odd hours. He ties her to the world. I never knew Janice was half black and her foster father raled her daily. I just thought my family was idiots. She was always there. We were never sure whose friend she was. We didn’t care. High school I’dvwalk home from my dishwasher job 2 am sue was asleep on the sofa. I never thought about it. She was just there. She is a brilliant pianist as an adult she told me what she endured. I never knew she was black. Never crossed my mind. We were poor. One of six an extra did not register. No clue my home was all she had. Maybe if we had been niceshe’d not have felt comfortable. I am one of six parents started beefing out babes at 15. My house was noise. I am very Catholic. To see my dad befriending a young girl affirms my faith. Her life could be garbage my dad is her frienx. Fucking father blew his brains out in the next room. Jim, my dad, reaches her. She is not refuse. Odd my dad was a deacon. Faggot son is the son of a preacher man.

    So funnyI took a few kids to get flu shots. I have legal bullshit to do that. Insane you need clearance. Anyhow AJ is like my nephew. My brothers wifes sister kid. He is AJ same age same school as Shay. He’s my nephew. We were filling out forms. He did not know he was black. Ten years old. It was never an issue. He is AJ. Very peuliar twice in one month I had to deal with race that I didn’t even know it was a thing. AJ is AJ janice is Janice. Pigmentationis nil.

    Amazing – I’ve been to Pompeii on a dig in the 90’s, haven’t been able to get it out of my head since. Thanks to Lund University for this

  11. Kathy says:

    Best wishes to Klown Mom. My daughter and I visited Pompeii a few years ago..soooo impressive. The Romans were incredible builders. A dig there must have been exciting..loved the wall porn/creativity.

    • Anthony says:

      The dig was a tavern that had somehow been miraculously preserved. Long hours brushing away the dust and pumice was a bit much, but uncovering even the most utiliitarian objects was like opening a treasure chest.

      The taverns also served as inns and brothels, and some of the graffiti was hilarious! What impressed me most was a simple kitchen ladle, that after all these years still had fingerprints on it. Guess the pumice dust from the volcano interacted with skin oils? It was amazing!

    Listen to this IRS scam

    • DeniseVB says:

      Just clicked on the Watch on Facebook and the video worked for me. Sometimes these “custom settings” won’t work for the public. Look for the “globe” icon, they can be shared anywhere. Ok, bottom line: IRS NEVER CALLS, unless you got a letter first. The first time we got a call about our impending arrest, we called our tax guy, he told us that too. Plus, he’d be the first one the IRS contacts because it’s what we pay him to do every year, so he’s terribly strict on our deductions 🙂

      • mothy67 says:

        I knew immediately it was a scam. I have no credit cards. Also knew cop was not a cop. Pisses me off that maybe an older person might fall victim. Its,all on tape. I have extensive home protection. I shut it off so stupid. I have 8 doors. All decks I live in basement. Slidi g glass doors. I have to punch in a code to have coffee. Pipsqueak had a party on Saturday. I turned cameras on because I caj watch everything on T V. I forgot to shut off. So fake cop was busted. Its on tape.

  13. elliesmom says:

    Elliesdad has been living with just one kidney for over 50 years. Gets him off the hook for donating one to me if I ever need one. Quick recovery for your mom, but tell her not too quick. She should get some more fall cleaning out of her kids first.

    • I have a couple things planned. Thankfully the oppressive heat is gone. It’s that time of year where it’s not too hot or too cold.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Reminds me when I’m asked if I want to be an organ donor, I just laugh and laugh and laugh. As would the organ harvesters in the morgue. So I’m saving humanity a lot of time and trouble 😉

    I wonder if Somebody evacuated with the grandkids?

    We got the message that the bridge to our condo would be closed at XX time, and to hit the road to evacuate. The email came last night from our condo association. We are only snowbirds, so for us it is not an issue (we have hurricane windows, and I am hoping that the condo association secured whatever needed to be secured on the roof), but for the people staying in the area, I hope that it passes you by.

    Two post cards in a week from the New York Republican Committee. Big post cards . 6 by 12. Latest has 5 killers pics on front The ISIS boys reading she can’t keep us safe. Addressed to the Cain Household. So not sure what list they are using. I get shit from DNC weekly always addressed to me. One phone call thus far. I said we are voting Trump. Young woman was very polite. Funny I was her 8 years ago. Might go door knocking on Saturday. Not sure if its in my skill set. I have no clothes. Not sure when it started but its years. I just buy stuff for brat. Never made a conscious decision. I go into a store and buy her stuff. I was looking in my closet thinkingvwhat to wear. I have nothing. I think last thing I bought for me was socks years ago. I honestly don’t think about it.

  24. mothy67 says:

    I quit facebook a year ago because I could not take the politics of posting. Sharing a name with VP nominee has driven people I have not talked to in decades to call and email me. . To a man they all find Tim Kaine creepy. I did not watch debate. Hundreds of emails they almost all say he seems like a pedophile. Thats from Democrats.

    • votermom says:

      Mothy, you got all the good qualities that were allotted to the Tim Kaines of the world. Nothing left over for that other one.

      • mothy67 says:

        File under nothing can be this fucked up. Many years ago Steve passed out on my futon. Hecwas an engineering student that sucked with girls. Hechad been dumped. We went to McGlinchy’s. He woke up with an erection. Tried to force me. Did not happen, he couldn’t look at me after that. Iwas young but I understood. He emailed me today. Was never a big deal. Some blood ran to his penis when his best friend comforted him. Seriously it was not gay. I had no issue. He did.well his very long missive inspired by Tim Kaine had a little treat. Guess he knows I dropped out to care for kid. He knew I bseess about college. No idea how. Been 30 years. He made a yuuge college fund Extreme. Doubled all I had saved over ten years.

  25. Kathy says:

    I’m in Jacksonville and went to pick up a few things today..lines were awful in the stores. Not too worried. I think people along the beach are under evac.But that’s tough because everybody A1A and 95 are already packed. Too many people and not enough roads out. We live about twenty miles just rain, wind, and electricity. Take care.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Yeah, good luck. Pioneer life sucks.

    • DeniseVB says:

      We’re 20 miles from the (Virginia) Beach too. We’ve never evacuated, even for those rare Cat 4-5 threats. Most of our area are in flood zones, so they require flood insurance, super expensive and still have 10k deductibles, why we didn’t buy on tidal property. Storm surges (when the ocean pushes into the bay into the river into the canals, hello, flooding!) We live on a lake about 12 feet higher than our outlet canal #Winning 😉

    Beyond stupid pup bought a Miku costume for Halloween. Her own money. Its this teal haired Japanese anime thing. She teaches math to 1st graders a wonderful program. Fifth graders teach 1st graders. Three days a week. Pup called to see if her neon green 48 inch wig arrived. Teacher got on the phone and told me costume was inappropriate. Cultural offensive. Its a cartoon

    • Lulu says:

      They don’t seem to realize what Trump has done for a living for fifty years. One piece of heavy equipment and some dump trucks and Michelle’s tomato patch is gone. I hope Trump replaces it with a war memorial.

      • Lulu says:

        Or a kid’s sports field for his young boy. And is Michelle going to build a tomato and pumpkin patch at her next house when she doesn’t have federal employees to weed and feed it?

        • He should build a casino.

          • Lulu says:

            Ha. I don’t think Michelle’s tomato patch is big enough for anything but a bingo hall. I thought putting green. Maybe a little formal garden with a gold statue naked lady fountain. Of Melania in the pose the “Winged Victory” of Samothrace with head and arms to rub it in.

          • blowme0bama says:

            Let’s don’t talk about Mooch’s patch.

          You should see that Trump hotel in WA DC. I doubt Trump would spend more time than he had to at the White House. In the midst of all those amazing buildings I looked over and saw that beautiful hotel, it stands out even among all the stunning buildings.

    Well, this is creepy….

    Heroin is scary. Its an epidemic.
    Many years ago I snorted junk at Max Fish with Suzanne Mallouk. She was john michelle’s baquits lover. I though it was cool hanging out in east village. I did so many drugs. Times I did so much coke I drank mouthwash to settle down. I was walking down West Lafayette in front of Tower Records I just stopped. On my way to work. Crawled up in a ball on Lafayette and detoxed. Yes I did all the bad stuff on the street. Puked, shat but inever touched heroin again. Got a job 5th Avenue and 9th Street. I had hit the streets got a job one block from Washington Square Park. Of course my heroin dealer lover was the manager. So fuckedd up. The GM was Ralph Waites nephew. Grandpa on the Waltons. He was married but they both used to be gay. I was a kid 22. I walked to midnight madness every night after work. Houston and Verrick. I had lots of celeb not sex. Midnight Madness,goes all night I will never mrntion a living person but Lou Reed was kind.
    My Rose Cafe job led to Bonnie Raitt. Micheal O’Keefe wed Bonnie. He was AA buddies with Ralph Waite.decades later I was filling out an application at Joe Allen ralphtells me he was behind bar working when he got the Waltons call. How jumped over the bar and quit. Joe Allen is one of the best restaurant jobs in New York. He treats his emplyees very well. I was making six figures and he told me I needed to move on. He opened a pub during the 60’s.many friends without a pot to piss in. He ran tabs. Those people are Al pacino, everyone on broadway. They still have house accounts. There is op wall. Shows that closed in a,week. My sister and cousin visited me. I was in agony. Patti Lupone was sitting next to us. I had been fired a year before. He walked over and yelled Tim why don’t you introduce Patty to your friends. I do know patti. I was in an off off off play with her. She acted like she was my best friend. Oddly Joe Allen is a very difficult place to get a job. Many years ago I met a young girl in a diner on the Upper West Side. She was living at the Martha Washington Hotel. I had to take care.. she is now a journalist.I hear on Greta. Published

    Funny I did not know Steve was Marlon Brando’s son. There was a diner 84th and broadway. We hung out as kids. We covered each others rent. We were kids. So broke.
