A change of pace

Today started off a little strange. I did my usual routine. I went to acupuncture, and did my thing. Then I went back up stairs to the 10th floor. When I walked into the hospital room.....My mom was on the my computer, trying to type something of some sort. She looked like she was really struggling too. SO.... I read over her shoulder. It is a bunch of garble. Seriously, half written words, and sentences that a 6th grader wouldn't write. I knew something wasn't right. I looked her in the eyes, and asked. "Mom, are you feeling ok?" She looked at me with tiny pupils. "I feel like the room is spinning, do you feel that?" I laughed a little bit, then told her no mom, the room is staying still. Well, long story short. She accidental took her Ambien in the morning instead of her thyroid medication. She was a mess for the greater part of the morning, all the nurses knew it too, cuz when she went walking down the hallway to the computer room, she was all over the place. Definitely no straight line. Not even close. Once I talked her into going to her bed, and laying down for a bit, she finally passed out. I followed her shortly there after. My head was hurting me. BIG TIME HURTING. Started after acupuncture, and didn't end till I laid down and just closed my eyes early on in the evening.

Once the evening hours rolled around, a storm came right with them.

It was pretty wild. The sky's just went from pretty clear to DARKNESS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!

yes, it was quite exciting, but too bad I didn't get to experience much of it. I was in bed. Laying with a head ache that wouldn't leave me alone. Seriously, it was constant, painful, and OUCH.

But, before I did have this bout of head pains, I got to meet and talk briefly with 2 very important people concerning Beike (Chinese stem cell research team). The president...we will call him Jon. And the American Liaison who turned me on to The person who can be given credit for saving my body from very painful and hurtful Chemotherapy that would have taken place at Northwestern. Yes, that's right.

Kirshner Ross-Vaden HERSELF!!

but, like I said. It was a very short visit. Pretty much after this picture, I went to my room and laid down. Some serious head ache issues.
