A Brief Hello

I am alive and I do have some funny storys to tell, lesbian committees always provide such juicy blog fodder, and oh my I have some classics to tell. However, as those of you on my facebook know, another unexpected life challenge has arisen in the last 48 hours.

My firstborn was admitted to hospital on Saturday night and is now in the cardiac ward as a heart issue has been discovered. Her heart rate is way too low and the chambers aren't beating correctly. There are many technical words for it, but basically it means we just sit and wait till the tests are done, then find if they are going to put in a pacemaker.

It's been a pretty rugged year so far on an emotional level, and right now I feel like I'm operating on auto pilot. As Alison Moyet said, "I'm all cried out."

Again I am just trying to focus on the positive and bless that this problem has been found without her actually being ill from it, and that we are lucky enough to live in a country that has the resources to treat it. Kia kaha, kia kaha.

Goodness me - hope that firstborn will be alright!

Yes, is perfectly well. Has healthy heart, no damage from bad pumping or arthritis, the chanmbers just don't play nicely and pump in unison. Had a pacemaker put in this morning and is now on the sofa googling to see how much the circuitry is worth....and scoffing "real tasty food".

We've been lucky it's been found and that we live in a country where it can be fixed so easily.
