Lawrence tonight

Dr. Patel as guest. I always look for her flower arrangement on her back table. She must have a garage full of these fake bouquets. Or does she maybe rent them?

Went to a great concert yesterday

31st annual Dylanfest in Torrance, CA. Great music and good vibes. It goes noon to 8, always ends with Like a Rolling Stone. But last night one of the organizers/musicians said, I've got more beer and feel like doing a couple more songs. Yea!!
We've had 3 deaths in the family in two weeks, and OMFG I really needed that

My brother was on a ventilator in the ICU

For over a week. He had pneumonia, COPD, mrsa, and it turns out, a failed heart valve. They extubated this morning, and he passed about an hour and a half later.
He was 71. You know, it feels like someone kicked you in the stomach. My elderly mom is coping pretty well, but I think it's going to hit her hard a little later.

My brother is on a ventilator

He and sil went to Lake Havasu for weekend. He started spitting up blood, she took him to emergency.
He has COPD. They did tests, he has pneumonia and maybe recurrence of lung cancer. Put him in ICU. Thank goodness he is somewhere that had a bed available!!
