Basically, her son went from a 5% chance of surviving, to full consciousness, coherent speech, and walking unassisted.
Apparently, it is possible for certain organs which have shut down to regenerate.
Somewhere in there, I wondered if this was going to turn into a Lifetime movie, or even in to a Hallmark Special.*
Then she told me that certain other aspects of her life were turning around, and now I suspect even Hallmark would turn the script down as too unrealistic...
...In the meantime, my wife has been listening to me obsess about the problems of a woman shes never met, and all she says is "What's the news? Is she doing OK? She probably needs a break, why don't you see if we can take her to lunch or dinner?"
So, yeah, I think even Hallmark would say it was too hokey.
Also, I love my incredible wife.
***Also in the meantime, the NRA has relented on it's ban on 1911s and revolvers in the Carry Guard self-defensive shooting classes. (Dear NRA: WTF is wrong with you?!)
I heard a lot of rationales why this rule made sense, but frankly, IMnsHO none of them stood scrutiny. If someone is paying $850 for a three day class, you should be a little more lenient about what gat they bring.
If Mas can design the shooting courses of MAG40 to accommodate single-stack pistols and 6 shooters, than by Friar Schwartz' ghost so can the NRA.
****Okay, so I have this theory that women's lives can be divided into one of three categories:
- Hallmark Channel movies
- Lifetime Channel movies
- Oxygen Channel movies
There may be other categories, the woman I first developed this theory around turned out to need one of those pay-per-view channels, if you know what I mean, and I think you do...
(Edited to add that I was only "involved" wih this woman as a co-worker.)
I haven't yet heard a proposed equivalent for men's lives, although I suspect my life story will star Bruce Campbell...
