Interesting. Odd how the Best Podcast category actually has four listings, when that is supposed to be the top three per category.

Going to see my mom again today. This is good because she's my mom, and bad because she's in the hospital.

Oh no. I hope everything's okay.

The jist of it is she fell pretty hard and lost most feeling in her legs. It took my dad about 3 weeks to convince her to go to the hospital (she's very stubborn). Three more weeks, a transfer to the hospital in Calgary, several xrays, a CAT scan, a spinal tap and a nerve biopsy later, and the doctors have no idea what the problem is.

I find myself taking all this especially hard because she and I did nothing but fight up until my wedding last summer. We did the mother-son dance, which was the most emotionally taxing moment of my life, and we agreed to start over. Now she's in the hospital, withered away to almost nothing, and it's the first time I've told her I love her since I was about 11.

In conclusion, though, she'll probably be alright, but will most likely be in a wheelchair.

I'm so sorry to hear all that. It sounds like you two have stopped fighting, so I'm glad about that, but that's a seriously not fun situation. I hope the doctors can figure out what's going on and that she'll make enough of a recovery to continue happily with life.

Decided yesterday that all text messages I send TAB from now on (or until he figures it out) will be in the third person, said person being one of my gaming characters. :lol:

I bought a Nexus 7, and the charge showed up as pending on my account. However, now it doesn't.

Yet Google says they've charged me and it's shipping.

If it ships and they don't charge, whose fault is that?

Googles.

I just want to make sure I get my tablet. I don't want them to cancel the shipment because they screwed up the payment.
