Hi everyone.  Welcome to WYFP (What's Your F****n' Problem?!) for this last Saturday of 2012.  Before we go any farther, please spell the following out in cuniform:

WYFP is our community's Saturday evening gathering to talk about our problems, empathize with one another, and share advice, pootie pictures, favorite adult beverages, and anything else that we think might help. Everyone and all sorts of troubles are welcome. May we find peace and healing here. Won't you please share the joy of WYFP by recommending?
Thanks.

So - I said farewell to MrCJB and KidCJB on Dec the 17th as they made their way to Nebraska to spend the time with MrCJB's family.  I stayed home to hang out with my 88yo mom, since my sister and brother-in-law are in DC and my nephew was over there with them.

It turned out to be good that I stayed home since I ended up bouncing Mom in and out of the ER last weekend with what presented as heart-related stuff.  Sadly, they missed the big letters that indicated that mom has a history of bleeding ulcers.  And they missed the fact in the four blood tests that they did that her hematocrit was around 28.  So, instead of putting those two together and treating her for internal bleeding, they treated her for a bunch of unnecessary crap.  Twice.  Even though I had brought up her ulcer with medical personnel at the hospital when she was first admitted.

Mom and I cancelled our trip to the coast and decided to stay home because we thought she was about to have a heart attack.  A quick trip to her primary doc (who is SO GREAT) on Wednesday, and we had a proper diagnosis and his permission to head for the beach.  (Seriously, she was in his office no more than 90 seconds before he had it pegged.)  

So, anyway, what was going to be just a strange Christmas without my guys around ended up being a high-maintenance and unnecessarily expensive medical scare.

And now my guys are home, which is nice, but I have to stop having Cinnamon Chex for dinner and start cooking real food and generally acting like a productive family member.  :- )

That's my whine.  Yours?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
