Well each day I make it without killing Drew right now is a, kidding...I think Amber saved a girl's life on the highway the night of her 25th birthday and I was standing beside her with a first aid kit. She did more to help the girl, I just called 911. Though, we're not sure if the girl died (it was a bad, bad accident on Georgia 401 at 4am btw. a motorcycle and two other cars...I help one guy with major road rash get some blood cleaned up). We gave the Amber's number and begged them to call us to tell us they were all okay but they never did.

I've never really been in a life-threatening situation. Though, I'd say my friends have saved my sanity on a number of occasions and I am sure my mother's wanted to kill me many times but abstained:)

I am friendly to strangers, it is only once you know me that you discover what a negative nelly I am.

What a Month!

Well, as most of my blog-readers know, it's been quite a month for the Griffins. My brother decided to get the worst kind of Staph known to man and had to be hospitalized and then sent into emergency surgery to get a chunk of his body cut away to attempt to rid him of infection. He's now living back at my mom's as he receives daily in-home healthcare from nurses that help with IV antibiotics and wound dressing changes and all things medical. While he's likely hating quarantine and certainly not happy about the estimated length of his recovery, I think he might slightly enjoy the service he receives as Casa Ann.

I'd say, it's good to have family (and medical insurance). I feel truly sad for anyone lacking either.

PS - in case you are reading this as news, the other interesting part of my September came when I nearly cut my thumb off and had to sit at St. Anthony's for half of a Friday while waiting to get stitched up.
