ALS

Follow Monday?

My Follow Friday post failed to get done on Friday with everything going on with Vista.  Murphy’s Law apparently dictates that as soon as you blog about how good things are going, all hell must break loose.

So in true Vista form, we ended up having to adjust a bunch of meds last week, then spent 8hrs in the Children’s hospital having her diagnosed with a severe bladder infection (thanks proteus vulgaris.  you and your bacteria friends are total assholes).  One traumatic catheter, a good dose of sedative (for her, not me, unfortunately) and some strong antibiotics later, and we finally got to make the drive home at 2am.

At any rate, blogging dropped off the priority list for a few days.  But I’m back and as irritating as ever.

So here are my Twitter follows for last week:

  • If you’ve never checked out The Weekly Cupcake, then your ass and hips probably thank you.  Each week she posts a new tried-and-true cupcake recipe (with pictures!  aka cupcake porn).  Her latest one, the Tiramisu Cupcakes, had me drooling all over my keyboard.
  • Highandnoble is documenting her journey since her husband was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) last month.  She has also started a new twitter account for it (OurALSJourney).  Her blog stories about the first symptoms, telling their family and children about the terminal diagnosis, and dealing with the fact that her husband doesn’t look sick, are truly moving.

I’ll be back in a few days, baring any unforeseen catastrophes with more fabulous follows for you.
