In US political news, ugh, I am getting discouraged. I feel the Bern, but I don’t think he’s getting the nomination. I know, Obama came back from worse than this, but Bernie’s loss on Tuesday damaged hard. Hillary is just too conservative for my tastes, tbh. I’m gonna vote for her though - It’s like how in baseball I say ‘anyone but the Yankees’, like, ‘anyone but the republicans.’ Especially given that it is almost a guaranteed nomination for Trump. Unless the republicans are just like, “Fuck you, no.” And if he doesn’t, as he stated during a CNN interview, there will be riots. Because he basically instructed his supporters to riot. He said like, “if I don’t get the nomination, there will be riots. I can guarantee that. Many, many riots. I won’t be leading it, but there will be riots.” Which was basically just him telling his supporters to riot. I know it’s not over until July at the conventions, but I see a Hillary vs. Trump showdown coming.
In health news, I have a MRSA infection on my left hip (had to be the side I sleep on, damn). Don’t go look up MRSA, it’s disgusting, you don’t need to see those images. It’s very contagious, mostly in hospitals and nursing home type settings. Sis got it from all the time she spent at medical paces with Mom, probably from Mom herself, who also has it. Sis keeps getting infected spots under her armpit area. Once it’s in your blood stream though, you have it forever, so this will just keep coming back. Mine isn’t terrible, but MRSA is resistant to most antibiotics and I’m allergic to most antibiotics, so my doctor is kinda grasping at straws. We’re starting with one I know I can take and if that isn’t strong enough, we’ll go to something that I’ve never had before (cross your fingers it doesn’t send me into shock). Mostly it itches and it hurts and I can’t sleep because I keep rolling over onto that side in my sleep and then waking up in pain. Ugh.
Owe you all a Mom Update soon, but for now, hope you are all good, my lovelies!
