Mystery Diagnosis

I am going to veer away from my mommy musings for a bit, and just say that my sporadic attention to my blog is due to a number of factors:

1. Work is insane. I am also spending some of my weekends doing some contract work with a former employer (babies are expensive!)
2. Sleep deprivation.
3. My brother has been suffering from a mysterious illness over the past couple of weeks and was admitted to the hospital last night. It's a little scary as after multiple tests, IVs, it is still unclear what is going on. He is not getting better after treatment; in fact, he is getting worse. What started as a serious GI infection has now spread to some sort of joint infection, and I guess there is some chest pain involved. (HIPPA would not approve of my sharing.) For all of my infectious disease specialist readers, give me a buzz...we need your help!

Once life settles a bit, I'll be back to my loquacious self.


  1. Ali,
    I'm sorry to hear about your brother's mystery illness. I wish I could contritube something substantive but I have nothing. I really hope that the docs figure something out really soon.
    THANK YOU for the wonderful gift of sleep. You are a godsend and in 16 years, I'd love for ML and KR to go an a group date! (can you tell I'm going to be super-strict?)
    Please email me your address...

  2. Man, I wish there was a Dr. House in the house.

    I'll forward this post to Nikki and my dad.
