Subject: RE: MOAB - Mother of All BS [annex]
Mom, I woke up with a numb left arm this morning. I got to ride in an ambulance to the horsespittle and they did scans and all and found I'd had a stroke (not of good luck). I'm going to get my right carotid artery reamed out on the 16th because the surgeon said that it's full of "junk" -- a medical term, so you'll have to look it up. Tomorrow is an echocardiogram and pre-op is Friday the 13th and surgery (that is, the throatcutting) is Monday the 16th.

We'd planned to stay home for Thanksgiving anyway this year.
