Lost many hours, most of today due to massive seizures which cycled for hours and hours, destroying capacity. How permanent the damage will be seen over time.
A RN came in her last week to drop off a paper which stated that due to a review of my case by a doctor who has not seen me, or vice versa, I am now officially ‘palliative’ with an expectation of less than six months to live. Though that original request was made over two months ago. Smile, wave to the crowd, smile.
If you need a review for Vampire Dairies season 2 it is this: “These Vampires may be 200 years old, or 500, but they never grew up.” Expect angst and some new supernatural entity every 20 minutes of the show. Elana I think her name is should die (the one they ALL love, but no one bothers to think to give the family ring to so she can be killed and come back to life – yeah, tonnes of stuff like that, where people die, and die, and DIE, and die, but don’t really die, except when they die, until they don’t die – and they still end up going off into the corner and sulking, or better yet, stopping during a torture in order to assure a neurotic insecure girlfriend that she is the one – yes, real scene……twice) and like Sookie, perhaps one day she will. But don’t waste your money on this, just fall out of your wheelchair on the edge of a gravel pit and call it even.
And while life is very painful and has many aspects that suck, it does not, because we are small and the world is big. The day we came back on the ferry a young Humpback had been throwing his body out of the water in the Strait of Juan de Fuca with the full fins. The Coho was there. I wasn’t. But I was heading out of the doors muttering, “Whales, whales, whales, whales, whales!” when a Humpback surfaced 200 feet right in front of me and then the ship came to a full stop. I put on the strap, fearing I might spasm and throw my camera in the ocean in the excitement.
I know it was a humpback because it crested, blew and then has this very distinctive hump right before diving.
Here you can see it diving, lifting up the tail for a LONG dive, which took it far, far away from the ship. It was such a clear day that you could see Mt. Baker in the background. It was one of those small brushes with a creature so large and living in a space so immense that even being on the migration route, to see each other at all is remote.
