Scene of the crime (of course I returned!)

Do you recognize this? Yeah, I didn’t either. That’s because the last time I was at the Diamond Restaurant, I didn’t even get to the part where a menu was handed to me. Instead, I decided to entertain the restaurant with my lovely fainting episode which landed me in the hospital for three days. That…

Two steps forward, one step back

So, yesterday I had a big day planned. Was going to go to the gym for the second time since my fainting incident. But Β I didn’t make it as planned. In fact, I didn’t do anything as planned. Woke up with my face swollen around where my stitches had been and feeling miserable. I called…

My not-so-near death experience

So, this will likely be my last blog about fainting for a while. I’m tired of talking about it and I’m guessing you’re tired of hearing it – it was a month ago today that I fainted. I’m still healing, slowly but surely. I’m ready for things to get back to normal. It’s been a…

‘Missa, why is your face blue?’

I didn’t want my nieces to see me when I looked like this. But without the stitches and the scabs, things are looking much less scary. I still look like I had an injury, but it’s not as horror-movie looking anymore. But, kids are observant and I have to share some adorable Mia-isms … my…

At least I don’t faint from having sex …

Ok, so where were we … sorry I keep getting tired and unable to finish my story! I told you about fainting, and I showed you my awful face, and I told you about how wonderful CMC Mercy is. So, silly me thought I’d just be at CMC Mercy for a few hours while they…

Why I love the hospital

So, I stopped talking yesterday during the second ambulance ride, this one to CMC Mercy. I was alone during this ride. Colleen and Jim had driven the Jeep to CMC University the night before, so Jeff drove that one. I’d been in the ER from around 9 p.m. to around 8 a.m., and neither of…

The post in which I show you my smashed-up face

So, we left off yesterday when I realized I fainted and I was tasting blood when I talked. Not a good feeling. As things started to come into focus I realized it was Jeff who I’d asked if I fainted. And there was another guy next to me asking me questions that seemed very official.…
