Emails flying back and forth, in the next state over, family has had wide-spread health issues.
Papa Dash you all know about.
Mama Dash – She has thrown her back out, in paralyzing level pain, so they took her to the ER. After hours of pain meds, she decided that ZERO was a good blood pressure for herself at the time.
Finally having come ’round to the thought that zero/zero BP is not going to get her home she straightened up, and the ER discharged her.
Whereupon she rolled her eyes up into the sockets and she slumped over in the wheelchair. ..>Back< to the room she goes.
A few hours later, they discharge her (again) and this time they get out to Papa Dash’s desert-dune jumper.
Where she slumps over again, lights out.
Back to the ER… in the wheelchair they brought her out in.
5 AM they finally get home. But the back of Mama Dash is anything but healthy.
Sister- She is still recovering from a motorcycle vs car. (“2 Seconds” in the collections of stories I have posted. I fictionalized their accident) and one of the screws/plates to put her bones back together has chosen to be a point of infection that is refractory to treatments so far.
So… Papa Dash in for surgery on Friday. Sister is going in for surgery on Monday, Mama Dash who would be taking care of both is not in much shape to do so and brother-in-law (awesome guy!) still has to do his 9-5 life.
So, I will be occupied and I will try to post goodies for you all. Perhaps second editions of stories that have danced before your eyes on this screen?
Come eat chocolate ice-cream and read about romance. Eat a pizza and wonder about exploding cell phones triggered by altruistic vigilantes.
Or a suicidal future medic (Melancholy: Tunnel of Darkness) or contemporary cop (Sound of Thunder)
But I have not forgotten you all. 😀 I am still working on horror stories anthology that is due Sept 1 (two stories for the collection of authors here in WP that have come together and two for a possible Podcast locally in the autumn.)
So now I have you updated. No story yet. I’ll see about getting something adventure like posted. 🙂
Hang in the folks. Someday you’ll be tempted to go to a movie and eat some popcorn then read “From the novel by Dash Mccallen” and you’ll have a chance to point and tell people around you – “I know him!”
LoL such are the things that dreams are made of.
So I will be heading into Nevada here in about 36 hours for an unknown amount of time. I don’t think it will be very long, and I might have internet access there and will post from there when possible.
