Tales From Auntie's House: And so we begin...

Mom and I are about to start on a new adventure...if you can call it that.

I've told you about the wound on mom's breast that hasn't healed. Well, she's about to start going into a Hyperbaric Chamber starting today. The hope is that the high concentration of oxygen in the chamber will finally heal the wound that's been there since April.

The chamber treatments are 2 hours a day, five days a week, for 20 treatments - to start. So it's going to be a busy 4 weeks. Ugh. But hopefully this will work, otherwise it means surgery - cut out all the radiated tissue, which is causing the trouble in the first place, and patch it with tissue from her back. *sigh*

I plan on doing some reading while I wait for mom each day. I've checked out a couple of classics from the public library: "The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer" and "On The Road". It's this sort of situation that I'd kill to have an iPad for though. *le sigh* So if I do intend to do any writing, such as on my fanfic, it'll have to be the old fashioned way...pen and paper. Not ideal, but I can make it work.

Meanwhile, I had a sneezing fit Sunday afternoon and I now feel like I'm coming down with a cold...again! Geez. I was just getting over the one I picked up after VanCon! This sucks! I've taken some Dayquil so...*fingers crossed*

Update

Well, mom didn't go in this morning for her first Hyperbaric Chamber treatment. I was just too sick to take her there, so she called in and canceled. We'll take it day by day. See how I am tomorrow.

I ended up sleeping until 1 p.m. By the time I woke up for real my throat felt a bit better. Didn't hurt so much. It's still not right though. Just took some more Dayquil, so we'll see if that helps. Otherwise, I feel pretty good. Nose runs a little, but again it's not as bad as last night.

It's mom's birthday today and wouldn't you know, I don't even have a card for her. Daughter fail!
I'll see if I can put together something on the computer here and print it out for her. Something's better than nothing, right?

Meanwhile, I tried to fill out that latest SPN Friending Meme and FireFox crashed on me (which it does, routinely). Sign? Much?
I haven't had any luck with friending memes the past few years. Guess FF was saving me from further disappointment.

Anyway, thanks for all the comments and well wishes to mom and I. You're all so sweet. *hugs flist*

"Angeles" Video & Caps

I know there are plenty of caps out there of this video by Jensen & Steve and even though nobody asked for them, I figured I might as well cap it anyway. Besides, this way I can make icons. ;)

So feel free to snag the zipped folder of caps and even take the collages if you want.

Edit: Totally realized I never posted the video itself. Ooops. Here it is...
