If you go to

My father ain’t my dad no more…

They don’t tell you about brain damage due to heart surgery. They don’t tell you that stirring up the globules in the blood makes some go to the brain and cause some short circuits. They don’t tell you that recovery may take a couple weeks in a rehab center until you can remember what day today is and what your address is.

They probably put it in the disclosures, but they don’t even tell you after the fact. You shouldn’t have to go to google.com and Bing ‘Memory loss complications from heart surgery’ to figure it all out.

Quote
"One of the best-kept secrets in medicine is the brain damage caused during bypass surgery. During my 40 years of medical practice I have never heard a doctor warn a patient before bypass surgery that an expected complication is memory loss. After surgery when the family complains of dad’s fits of anger, I have never heard a doctor admit that personality change is a common consequence of surgery. Yet these well-recognized side effects have been reported in medical journals since 1969."

— John McDougall, MD

"That’s crazy! Yogurt is really more healthy than some other things, as is cottage cheese … I don’t know who proposed that … But whoever proposed it, it shouldn’t be."

Washington, D.C. Councilman (and former Mayor) Marion Barry, speaking against a nonexistent “yogurt tax.” A reporter had asked a question about Barry’s position on the city’s proposed “yoga tax,” which would levy a sales tax on gyms, yoga studios and health clubs.

I think I found a new favorite website…

Quote
"It is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displaced by a look alike."

Timothy Ray Murray, an Oklahoma man who was running in the Republican primary against U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas. Murray alleged that the 10-term congressman had been “executed along with others on a white stage in southern Ukraine on or about Jan. 11, 2011.” Murray lost the primary.

Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.

Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.

If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.

I don’t know what’s up. Third-hand and garbled is not the best way to get medical information on someone important to you.

I write about my family. My mom is not a gem, in fact, last week I said out loud to S ‘If it weren’t for Catholic guilt and the fourth commandment I would have no feelings at all for my Mother’

Her response? ‘What does keeping holy the sabbath have to do with anything?’ I could never keep the commandments in order.

My Dad though, it’s complicated. I’m mad at him for enabling my mom. I’m mad at him for some of my upbringing, but he’s my Dad…

He’s now in a rehab facility. Either during or after his bypass surgery they think he had a ‘ministroke’. He is confused one minute and lucid the next. He answers every question about going home one minute, and the next forgets what day it is. They gave him his electric razor yesterday, he shaved half his face and stopped.

Michele said it well: I’m tired of fucking lemonade. I’m sick of god damn lemons. I want to take all these lemons and find out who is responsible for handing them to me and shove them so far up their ass they will be shooting fucking lemonade out of their mouth for a week.
