The 12:30 AM phone call

Filed under: Family, Health, Love, My Life and Rants, People I like — Scottie @ 05:37

My husband went to work last night as normal.  He left at 6 PM and texted me when he got to the hospital.   I went to bed early as I normally do.   Then I was awakened at 12:30 AM by my phone ringing with the ring tone I have set for my husband.  As it is not normal for him to call me in the middle of the night I answered very concerned.   “Scottie, this is Jeanette ( the night time supervisor for the ICU’s ) Ron has fallen, he passed out and fell hard”.  “We think it is his blood sugar and he is awake now but very confused and he is saying his hip and back is hurting really bad”.  “We are taking him to the ER now to have him checked out”.   

What do you say?  I was confused, startled, trying to process that Ron had fallen due to his blood sugar going to low and was hurt.   All I could think of was to thank her and ask her to have him call me when “…he was better”.   Ron said he was still on the floor listening to her talk to me on his phone and when she chuckled and told him my response was to have him call when he was better Ron said he just rolled his eyes.   

The gave him an X-Ray and a C.A.T. scan, did blood work.  In the ICU they gave him some glucose type syrup to bring his sugar up.   So he was in terrible pain so they sent him home.   He had been texting me on and off during all the testing from the ER as there was no way I could go back to sleep.   I offered to come get him in the van but he felt he could drive.   They offered him a very mild pain reliever or Morphine.  He can not take morphine so he just took some Tylenol.   

When he got home I brought in his stuff from the car and helped him into the house.   I got him something to eat and helped him into bed.  His left hip is really sore and he is limping, but the scans showed no break.  His back is twisted and hurts bad and I can understand that.  He is in bed now and I am sitting here with a few hours of sleep thankful it was not worse.  When he wakes up he is going to really hurt.   It is a holiday so he can not call his doctor.  I maybe able to take him to a convenient care if he needs it.  

Be well everyone.  Have a grand holiday.  Be safe.   Hugs

Jimmy Carter: A Full Investigation Would Show That Trump “Didn’t Actually Win” The 2016 Election

Jimmy Carter: A Full Investigation Would Show That Trump “Didn’t Actually Win” The 2016 Election [VIDEO]

 “I think a full investigation would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election, and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf,” the former president, who served between 1977 and 1981, said at a panel hosted by the Carter Center in Leesburg, Va.

Happy Ron’s morning

Filed under: Animals, Homosexual, Love, My Life and Rants, People I like — Scottie @ 11:31

We do not celebrate mother’s day here.   However I woke up feeling OK this morning and Ron was not too tired from working all night.  So we agreed to a morning plan.  He would stop at the store on the way home and get some eggs, bread, a ham steak, and some hash browns.  I started bacon and sausage.   When Ron got home I cooked us breakfast.   We have not had a breakfast together in months and have not had bacon in about five months.  I have not been interested in eggs so Ron would just make himself a small breakfast.   He was so happy.  He called it his mothers day gift.   I told him I would clean up later as the Sunday news shows were coming on, and I love the news.  But he went ahead and picked it all up and did the dishes and ran the dishwasher.   I love the glass top stove but it is a bitch to keep clean and streak free.  At some point one of us used the scrub pad on it ( unthinking ) and left little scratches in the glass.  All in all a grand breakfast of all the major food groups with a dessert of news.  Ron has gone off to bed as he works tonight.   I am in my office watching the news with both cats snoozing after they had a hand full of treaties each.   All is well in our home.   Hugs

In the picture below is a person who was born with female genitalia.   They do not identify as female.  They do not go into a bathroom with any intent other than eliminating waste.  Peeing or pooping for those not up to 3rd grade yet.   Now I keep hearing a lot of crap from the religious right about men being in the women’s bathroom and how evil it is.  They claim people should only go to the bathroom of their birth genitalia.  So tell me, which bathroom should this person use?

Pelosi Rips GOP’s “Let Them Eat Cake Attitude”

“What do they have? They have Wilbur Ross saying he doesn’t understand why oh, when he was asked about people going to food lines and pantries and the rest, he says, he doesn’t understand why they have to do that,” Pelosi said.

“I don’t know, is this the ‘Let them eat cake’ type of attitude? Or ‘call your father for money’? Or ‘this is character building for you’? ‘It’s all going to end up very well just as long as you don’t get your paychecks?’”

Dennis sent us some pictures of his special friend.

The first one is about a week after she showed up in my backyard. Yes, SHE chose me to be her obedient servant, and care for her royal needs accordingly. In the second, she’s a couple months older. And see her sticking her tongue out, in the third? She’s quite the character.

Ron’s Christmas Tree, try 2

On Wednesday Ron took a break from building the front room ( my future office ) and after moving things around ( which looks much better )  and began setting up his Christmas Tree.   I looks grand.  He loves doing it.   He loves odd unusual ornaments.   That night he took a bunch of pictures and asked me to post them.   So here is Ron’s 2018 Christmas Tree.   Hugs

Ali Forney Center Founder Carl Siciliano

https://www.joemygod.com/2018/11/guest-post-ali-forney-center-founder-carl-siciliano-2/

I keep hoping that the numbers of LGBT youths people thrown out of their homes will begin to diminish, that the crowds of dispossessed kids seeking our help will go down. It hasn’t happened. In fact, Trump’s election has so ramped up hatred and bigotry in our country that the numbers of young people seeking shelter from us has grown by 20%. Last year over 1,400 youths showed up at our doors.

I keep hoping that religious condemnation of LGBT young people will ease up. That hasn’t happened either. The numbers of young people who come to us after being subjected to psychological and even physical torture in bible camps practicing “reparation therapy” also continues to grow. Numerous kids, especially those who come to us from southern states, have endured this. They tell us harrowing stories of abuse.

I keep hoping that LGBT youths will be safer in their homes. But over 75% of our youths were verbally and physically abused in their homes, because they are LGBT.

Adding insult to injury, we learned last month that the Ali Forney Center is losing $300K in federal funding that supported mental health services for our traumatized youths. Frankly, it was not a big surprise. The Trump administration has virtually erased LGBT language from the federal applications for youth-serving grants. But it still hurts. After providing safe places for our youths to sleep at night, supporting their mental health – helping them overcome the violence, trauma and rejection they’ve been forced to endure – is the most important service we provide.

and the reforestation project

I know some of my viewers do not like videos and some struggle with English.  However this is an important video.  This video explains how one group were able to help a group of people and stop deforestation.  This is important.   Plus it shows you what I watch while I am reading your blogs.   I an not simply anti trump, I am pro helping making a better world for all of us.   Hugs
