Mom was rushed to the ER yesterday with a temperature of 107... she could have died. Turns out she had some infection in her leg that spilled out into her bloodstream and she got sepsis. Long night last night, today it seems the antibiotics are at least trying to work... going to be a long, hard recovery and she's not out of the woods yet.

They put in a PICC line and if she continues to improve they will send her home next week and she will continue to take IV antibiotics at home through the PICC access.

Go google 'sepsis' and pick your jaw up off the floor. Mortality rates are insane... she is lucky to still be alive.

I'm sitting in my parents' basement. Going to be on a conference call for the next 2 1/2 hours, but I'm not going to be talking that whole time. I was chattin' them up for a bit, and the guys on the other end of the line (from New Zealand) seemed surprised that I know my Celsius. DO YOU HEAR ME USA? CONVERT ALL THE THINGS TO METRIC!

Why is it that the 9mm is the most popular metric measure, followed by the kilo? I mean, we are on par with Burma and Liberia in terms of our units of measure.

Got my Undead Hunter (Hordie) to level 45 on Drak'Thul... think I'm going to switch to Feathermoon and play my little mini-me troll guy for awhile.

9mm ammunition, and a kilo of cocaine.
