Random Bits of Random Absurdity and Random Randomness
Six Degrees of Updatieness

Well Then


My dad collapsed this morning while vacuuming. He hit his head on a door and cracked it open. He's on blood thinners for his heart so they still have not gotten the bleeding under control. A trauma surgeon has been called in. That's all I know.

I'm three hours away. I'm freaked out. I'm trying to look busy. My mom wants to wait until we know more before I leave to go up there.

For anyone else, this wouldn't be such a mind-bogglingly terrifying injury, but my dad's been through a hell of a lot. So maybe for him, this shouldn't be so terrifying, because he is one amazingly strong man who has fought through worse.

But I'm still terrified.


Update: He's stable now, and awake. He hit and punctured an artery when he fell. But it should be all stitched up and under control. He lost a lot of blood so I guess they'll need to give him some. And figure out why he collapsed. Or something. I'm very tired.

I've decided to head to Pennsylvania tonight, just after I finish some work stuff up. Jason's coming too, because he's awesome like that. Also coming with me: the goody bag of all my favorite candies and snacks that Sprocketeer bought me. Twix, Goldfish, M&Ms, gum, Snickers, Starburst and Skittles. And of course, InTouch Magazine, because nothing cheers you up better than trashy trashy magazines.

The cover story: BABY ON THE WAY? After the wedding: STARTING A FAMILY! J.Lo has longed for a baby for years. Now the newlyweds begin to make their dreams come true (no end punctuation, because another exclamation point would be tacky.)

PLUS Why was Ben rushed to the hospital on J.Lo's wedding day?

DUN DUN DUUUUNNNN. I cannot wait. I must know why now!



I'm so sorry, Amy. You'll be in our thoughts and prayers. Let us know....


Sending healing vibes Eastward. I truly hope that your dad is okay. I've been in a similar situation, and all I can say is that getting there might be the best thing...was for me anyway.

Morty's Buddy

Like Beth, my family will be thinking and praying for your Dad.


Oh Amy, I'm sorry. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I had no idea about everything that your father has been through -- he sounds like a very strong man.

I know from fathers with health problems, believe me, and I know how hard it can be.


Oh, baby I am so sorry!!!! Go be with him, and love him til he's better. You are in my thoughts and prayers!!!

Know that you and your father will be in my thoughts. He does sound like an incredibly tough guy.


Oh Amy, how frightening. Sending thoughts and prayers your way... please update us when you can.


You are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so sorry. It's always scary when bad things happen to our loved ones. I'm sure the doctors will figure out what is wrong and get him back to normal. **Big Hugs**


Glad to hear he's stabilized. I'm sure he'll be thrilled to see you, and to find out about why BEN was rushed to the hospital of course - take care girl - and Jason is uber-cool.


Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear about your dad, but hopefully he'll make it through without too many problems. That's great that you can spend some time with him.


Glad to hear that things are looking up. Keep us updated both on your dad and on Ben's condition.


I'm so sorry Amy! I hope your Dad recovers in record time. Don't forget to pick up Star and US Weekly too!


You're in my thoughts and prayers too. Hope everything turns out all right. Have a safe trip.

your adoring handmaiden

Oh Amy, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I hope your trip up there is smooth and swift I know that seeing you will improve his spirits and help him heal. All the best.

feisty girl

Hey, that stinks. I am glad that they finally figured it out though... Hang in there chicky.


I'm a new reader, and I just wanted to say hi, and that I'm thinking of you and your dad. It is wonderful that you're able to be with him, and I hope that you and he are both doing all right.


Good thoughts coming at you and your pop, Amy. And your Ma, too. Be safe and keep us posted.


Scary stuff!! I'm glad you can get up there quickly to be with your parents. Keep us posted.


Oh honey love, NO!!!I Hope that your Dad is doing much better by the time you reach him. I'll be thinking of the both of you. It does sound as if you packed all the nessities for your trip though.

We will all be waiting for an updated report on Dad..

Well, that and we want the dirt on J.Ho-erm, I meant J.Lo and Marc, and what the hell Ben's damn problem is. (My Love Don't Cost A Thing my ASS! Hell, she upgraded 2 whole freakin CARATS on the wedding ring from Ben!Well,I'm kinda proud of her on that one.TBH)

Love ya babe. MWAAAH. (and a hug for Daddy too!)


I'll be thinking about you guys...and trashy trashy cover stories. Take care of yourself and your Daddy.



Thinking about you and your family...

PS Are those Univ. of Texas hats that y'all are wearing in the top photo? If so... Hook 'em! :)


Amy -- I missed reading your blog yesterday, and Sprocketeer just told me about your dad. I hope he's doing better now.
