DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

Big scares, big news... and a guest blog of sorts

Who CARES about my clothes this last week? Not me!

I wore a repeat today: "Chocolate Cherry". Wednesday, I wore a blog-worthy outfit, and wanted to show a "fix". I didn't have a chance to blog it before the fit hit the shan.

I've been offline because we had a horrid scare. Hubby had been having a lot of neck pain, and Dr. T sent him for an MRI Tues. Wed morning, she called him, FROM HER HOME, telling him that if he makes the wrong move he could be paralyzed! He actually called in to work earlier, because his neck bothered him.

He called me, and I left my office in near-hysterics. I had to drive him to a real city over two hours away to get him to a neurologist. The head of neurology at a respected hospital, actually.... Cliff Notes version: MRI wasn't detailed enough, and made it look even scarier than it is.

But Dr. T made the right call, and we are truly grateful.

But I've never been so terrified in my life!

I changed from my work clothes to a sweater and jeans while we were waiting for a call from Dr. T, and I remember when changing into PJs that night that my sweater smelled like "Fear". Certainly didn't want photos of my puffy-eyes, tear-stained, abject-terrorized self.

We didn't learn for certain that immediate surgery wasn't necessary Friday afternoon. We spent the weekend recovering from the strain.

Then today... got a text from Baby Sis: "read (my niece's) T-shirt, then call me":

Figure out the big news yet?


  1. Oh that's awesome... was she trying for very long? Big sister looks very happy about the news. I'm glad hubby is ok. I thought maybe your surgery had been moved up... I'm so glad you're both ok. Good thoughts going your way.

  2. Wow, how terrifying. I'm sorry you had to go through that ordeal. Fortunately it was a false alarm. I know how scary these things can be.

  3. Wow. Glad your husband is okay. And congratulations to your sister!

  4. Wow, I had been wondering where you've been, that is really scary and so so glad things are ok. So looks like somebody is gonna be an Auntie again!

  5. Holy smokes, I'm glad your husband is okay. Great news about a new family member!

  6. What a relief! Hope your husband will feel better soon. Congratulations on the news about a new addition to the family!

  7. Whoa, you have had a week of extremes. Is his neck pain any better?

  8. Thank you all for your kind thoughts! Hubby is still in quite a bit of pain, but his spinal cord isn't in danger as initially thought. And I'm doing a happy dance about the pending baby!
