HAPPY NEW YEARS FROM MFM posted by kali

.
.
.
Considering what a garumphing collumphing farrump I am IRL, I can tell you how difficult it is to find a BEST friend
long term like like Kali.

I can not imagine my life without her in it.
Kali... deal with that AND... since I know
that won't be strong enough.. ... ... STFU
.
.
.."STFU" always gets the most interesting/fun responses from Kali.

Though I am always trumped by #10

I have been trying to figure out what he meant since he wrote it - I did NOT post the OP, it was from him and he wrote it on NY's DAY, I had seen him the evening before...

I AM very...emotional? touched, sad, honored? about the fact that his last post was about that visit and sort of to me, though.

Damn.

Could it be that he knew his time was running out, and that he really did want to honor you in a loving and typical, for him, way?

Maybe even dedicating his last post about the love and gratitude he felt?

Thank you SO much for helping us have more of him, and giving of yourself like that, for him.

So sorry, though.



ETA, what do you suppose he meant by "number 10"?

he was very down and even said he thought he might be going, back when I saw him xmas eve, but then he really picked back up and seemed to making a comeback. New Year's Eve he was pretty upbeat but worried he couldn't hack the rehab regimen at the new (old) place. Next thing I knew Monday night, they moved him out of the rehab place to the nearby hospital. That was the last time I talked to him. He even laughed about the corn cob joke. Then Tuesday they called and moved him again to UMC, they thought they might be going to have to remove his pacemaker as it was the source of a bad infection they could not get rid of, but he was too sick for that and they called this morning to ask if I wanted to be with him. Of course I went. He went pretty fast after I got there, and he was not suffering long. He had beautiful people at UMC making sure he was comfortable and treating him with respect and dignity. That is why he liked that hospital. Circles of three years ago when Gabby Giffords was taken there.

I am so sorry the post I started this morning was misleading. I couldn't write what was imminent and I thought using "light" instead of "vibes" would be a good hint, but I was wrong. I felt so bad when I got back and saw that everybody was still hopeful.

And we all know, sometime, each one of us, we have to go.

I used to tell my mom, "just not today", but her day finally came.

I'm so glad he had good care and I'll bet he kept hospital staff in stitches.

He left us with so many smiles and laughs, and now a bit of a mystery.

Again, thanks forever for what you did for him and for us.

No human being should die alone. Thanks to you, and through your kindness, us, he wasn't alone.

Many of the replies to that thread were more worried and panicky than most of the other MFM vibes threads. People probably just didn't want to acknowledge it. I knew immediately when I read the word "light" that things probably were not good. Don't beat yourself up about this !!!

that was a little private joke between he and I. I use a number 10 scalpel for uh...a certain livestock procedure. A procedure that tends to allow me to skip the DU gender wars and pretty much equalizes all real-life men vs women discussions with me.

know you are enjoying the funny crap on my front porch, especially the inflatable Oscar Mayer wiener. I talked to an old friend of yours today and to Mike L last night. He was in fucking Kindred Hospital the same time as you. Just got home this week. damn. He is currently bed-ridden and could use some vibes. He wants to come to Guadalajara Grill for some girly drinks too.

have some hearts, people have overdone sending them to me! I am sort of shocked. hope they will give to those who don't have any/many, as you always advocated.
