Sometimes the Magic Works...

But who knew it'd work so fast?

It looks like Lynn's going to be okay. The bad news is, it wasn't just one little bastard, it was several, "bilateral and on upper and lower lobes." The good news is they were all tiny and are being killed off by the stuff they're giving her (and I hope the fuckers die screaming). She's off the heart monitor and may very well come home tomorrow, Saturday at the latest. She'll be on blood thinners for 90 days or so, and we'll need to keep sentry for more little bastards trying to sneak in, but I'm breathing a little easier (and so is she, but only a little).

Thanks to all my Hellions for the positive energy. It made a big difference to me.

Oh, funny thing...one reason I was so insistent that she go immediately was that I'd just finished the Warren Zevon bio I wrote about on Murderati. As you remember, Zevon died of inoperable lung cancer, and the first symptom his friends noticed was...he got winded climbing stairs. So when I heard Lynn saying "Wow, I really got winded climbing those stairs," I got very insistent about getting checked out by our family doc.

Glad to hear your wife is doing better Dusty. Those embolisms are little bastards, no question.

Whatever the reason, thank goodness she got checked out when she did.

Jesus, Dusty, I just now got caught up on the news.

Damn, man, you know if you need anything I'm just up the road.

Kiss your lovely wife and tell her it's from me. We always did have this attraction...

Yikes, I'm away from the computer for a day and I miss something this important! Glad things are looking up; GoodThoughts being sent for the WareWife. And for you, too -- take care of her.

PHEW! Thank god for jumping to conclusions!!! (See, Warren Zevon is doing good work even though he's no longer with us).

SO glad she's doing better.

All the best to y'all and hella-good vibes your way!

I knew slaughtering that goat would help. Anything else you need done, just let me know. I've got the Loa on speed dial.

I'm behind as well, Dusty, and I'm sorry Lynn (and you and the kids) are going through this, and I'm glad you were a pushy bastard and made her go to the doc.

Sending every bit of positive energy your way and wishing for a speedy and safe recovery for your lovely wife.

I cannot tell you how happy this news makes me. Good on you for getting her to the doctor, pronto. You're a good husband, as well as a good Zevon fan.
