Stay out of her way... [Aug. 2nd, 2009|09:50 am]
fruitylips
So I was a terrible student. Unfortunately, I figured out pretty early on that I was smart enough to consistently get low-As, high-Bs in school with almost no actual effort on my part. With a small amount of effort, I could easily wreck any curve I felt like. Luckily for my classmates, this was not something I cared enough to do very often.

This morning Gabby just asked me for a piece of paper. She is concerned that she doesn't 'know how to spell all the words there are'. She's spent the last hour finding words she doesn't know how to spell and writing them over and over again until she can spell them.

It all started off a bit strange... [Jul. 30th, 2009|10:43 am]

So yesterday I come into my office. Someone's left a small, red box on my desk. I open it and ti seems to be filled with red packing material.

After digging around a little, there's afoam wrapped object about 6" x 3", but I still have no idea what it is or where it came from.

So I unwrap it and stare at the object for a short bit trying to figure out what it is. One thing is certain, tho, it is made of solid chocolate. .

Slowly it dawns on me that someone's sent me a small chocolate foot.

So if you ever need it, it turns out that your local McDonald's will happily give you a cup of pickle juice.

Zippy passed at 5:55pm this afternoon.

Kam, Ang, Ish, me, Womble, Colin, Hoche, two of Zippy's coworkers, Kam's boss and Zippy's mom were at his bedside when he went.

Angela and I're working on arrangements and will let people know when plans firm up.

Zippy.... [Mar. 20th, 2009|02:01 pm]

I don't remember who all was following this saga here, but it got way, way worse this week.

His WBC spiked massively in the last couple of days and his body is being ravaged by infections. He's suffering from massive organ failure.

The decision has been made to let him pass. He's still at Stanford (E2 ICU). If you can get there by 6pm and want to, please try, but I can't think of anyone else local. If you can't find them, call Angela or me.

If anything changes, I'll post it.

Slipper
Originally uploaded by dekebus
This slipper appeared on the curb outside my house about a week ago. Nothing else...just this. I thought about throwing it out, but decided to just leave it there and see how long it lasts sitting just like that. As you can see from the pic, people park right by it all the time, but it hasn't been knocked off of the curb in the last week.

No, I don't know why I find that interesting...

This will likely be out of date before I even get it posted, but whatever...

Also, I'll prolly get a buncha the details wrong, but they're really not important right now, so I'll mostly gloss over them anyway.

Anyway, they finally decided to do the surgery last night. My understanding is that it went as well as could be expected. they removed the gall ballder and a lot of the necrotic tissue in the pancreas.

Today, the liver and lungs are failing. Istart and Taarna are up at the hospital with Kaboukie and Zippy's mom.

They had to do emergency surgery in the ICU, since he's not stable enough to move to the surgical suite and he was hemorrhaging. They didn't find anything significant. He's bled 2 more liters in the 2 hours since surgery.

I'll post more as I find out.

Update: Ish just got home. She says the bleeding is from DIC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disseminated_intravascular_coagulation). Wikipedia is not optimistic...

12/25 11am Update: "He stopped bleeding." -- Kam
