 The previous post, having, I pray, served its purpose, is now under lock and key.  If, however, anyone believes that a parent they know might see themselves in it, and benefit from it, I will happily make it available; just PM me.  To those who responded in writing, my heartfelt thanks.  I did not reply because my purpose was not to seek pity, or even empathy, for myself.  My purpose was to make parents who, in these stressful times, might've become as self-absorbed as I was, take another, longer look at their children.  And to the many of you who did not reply in writing, but instead said silent prayers or gave your kids that extra kiss--thank you.  You are helping to prevent this from happening to another child, another family.

I need some help here.  Apparently, I've got a false memory of a House episode in which a young man has several fingers severed in some sort of accident.  He is also a heavy smoker, and is denied replantation surgery based on that.  He promises to quit smoking immediately, and the fingers [I believe they were cadaver fingers] are successfully attached.  But he and his wife? girlfriend? return several weeks later, and the fingers are turning black, dying.  Turns out that his addiction to smoking was  stronger than the risk of losing his fingers.

[profile] blackmare_9   doesn't recall this ever happening in House.  But I'm certain that I saw, or read, about this incident somewhere.  Does anyone else recall this incident on TV, in a movie, or perhaps a book?

Full disclosure--as I am a smoker, and have been obssessing worried about a serious, stupidly self-inflicted injury to my only functional hand since prior to Christmas, it's entirely possible that I dreamed the whole thing.  But... I really think I saw this somewhere. 

Oh, almost forgot--HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!

Wishing all of you the most blessed of holiday seasons!

I'll be going on a small hiatus from the computer for a while.  I'm figuring through January should do it.  I'm having a bit of difficulty with my hand; I need to give things a chance to settle down, and I need to play the lovely readjustment-of the-pain-meds game.

I'm truly sorry; I'll miss you kids and the stories--I'll even [probably] miss LiveJournal.  Maybe it won't take the full month, and I'll be back before anyone realizes I'm gone! ;)  If not, hope to see you towards the beginning of February.

I'll be checking email a couple of times a week ['cuz I still have to pay the bills!]; if you need to get in touch with me, my email address is in my profile if you're on my f-list; feel free to PM me if you're not.

Here's hoping for a fabulous fic-filled [and maybe even episode-filled] 2008!

*hugs to all*

 koda has finally decided upon a Halloween costume; the child who bears a startling resemblance to the young RSL wants to be House!!!  Now, he already has the authentic, flame-emblazoned cane, he can limp on his right leg like a pro (mommy was his role model--hee), we got the stuff for fake facial stubble, and spray to gray his hair.  he's going to wear jeans, his orange and gray nike sneakers, and my "everybody lies" t-shirt.  what i need help with is this:  i know that--somewhere on the net--there exists a mock-up of house's hospital ID badge--and i NEED that graphic, desperately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ETA:   Thanks, everyone!  Once again, you've demonstrated why the House fandom is simply the best.  Hugs to you all; you've made my kid verrrrrry happy--which, of course, makes me ecstatic!
