Zebra stew? New coat for Christmas? WT huh?
My aunt contracted viral meningitis and encephalitis, probably from a mosquito bite she received here in Texas (home). She's been in the hospital in Denver, where she had traveled to do some genealogical research. She is headed home today although she is very weak. She will have to go into a rehab facility. And you think weird stuff happens to me?
After two trips to the ER did not identify what was wrong with my aunt, my cousin (her son), the doctor, flew to Denver and admitted her to the hospital and ordered the appropriate tests. Apparently, this ER is not where you want to be when you are deathly ill.
But wait. There's more. My cousin's twin brother's doctor died. This doctor was on the same flight to Denver as my aunt. This doctor was in his 40's. He had a heart attack. Unfortunately, this leaves my cousin without his meds. Um, not a good thing.
Another doctor in the Denver hospital died of a heart attack this week. This doctor was in his 40's. Oh, my. Weird. Really Weird.
Oh, and BTW, please do not go crazy and come into the gym where I work with a gun. 'K? I kind of like myself without holes from gunshot wounds.
In case you have not had enough bizarre:
To sum up the tidbits of my bizarre week:
- Don't have striped skin.
- Don't go outside.
- Don't go to the hospital in Denver.
- Don't be a male in your 40's with a stressful job.
- Don't be a fitness instructor.
What kind of bizarre things have happened to your or yours this week?
