“It’s my party” Scary Blog /18

A few years ago my daughters, Candis and Cami, threw me a wonderful birthday party in San Diego. I was honored and surprised with how many of my Canadian and American friends from all over showed up to roast & toast me. (pictured on top, Candis & Cami & me) (next, left – right, Nance & Ron Chapman, me, Linda Duffy, Cami, Brynn, and Candis.) (next down, me and Gary Russell RIP) (last photo, Jack McCoy and me)
Living in West Palm Beach, I booked four tickets to San Diego and upgraded two of them to first and put Cami and her friend Brynn up there. Linda Duffy and I sat in the back where my plan was to have a couple of cocktails and relax before changing planes in Dallas. Unfortunately, that was not to be.
Sitting there chatting with Linda while enjoying my CC, I hear, “If there’s a doctor on board would they please make themselves known by pressing their call button.” I remember thinking, God I hope it’s not serious, but when a flight attendant who was headed to the back, locked eyes with me, I knew it was serious! 
When I quickly got up front, I found Cami laid out on the floor half in and half out of the restroom. She was shaking and throwing up but thankfully we managed to get her settled down a little and back in her seat before we landed in Dallas. However, once we landed, she started up again, so they took her off on a stretcher. (she may have had a reaction to the nuts they serve in first class.)
Thank goodness we had a couple of hours before our next flight but she had to tough it out when we boarded our next flight because they wouldn’t let us on if she didn’t appear to be ok. Thank goodness Linda was along because I was just a basket case, so when we finally boarded Linda sat up front with Cami. Upon landing in San Diego, Linda told me that Cami had thrown up a few more times during the flight and to me, she still looked white as a ghost. However, after picking up our luggage and heading to our hotel in a taxi, I heard the sweetest words I’ve ever heard, “Daddy, I’m hungry, can we get a pizza?”

After watching Billy Bob Thorton in a few things like Goliath I’m convinced that he and his ilk can make a good script great. Unfortunately, even a great script can’t make a bad actor any good. 
 
Now I hear that they want to expand the nominees for the Grammys so that more people can win. Hey, why don’t they just hand out participation trophies and be done with it?

  1. Not to pry, but I assume Cami was tested for food and other allergies since that traumatic flight(s) ? Having a family member with various food allergies made me aware of it, although it seems that it was when we were in Tampa that the effects appeared. On another note, again observing and assisting family members suffering the side effects of chemotherapy a few days after infusion, from what these afflicted individuals tell me, there is no “high”, just a relief from the waves of nausea and pain. Two members of my close inner-circle of family do not have Rx for medical marijuana (It is not legal in Indiana, yet, but C.B.D. oil is legal.) but do untilize the cannabis oil when the side effects of the chemo are at their peaks and at their worst. The C.B.D. oil seems to take the edge off the suffering.

    • Jed, I think they need to educate the non-toker like me about medical marijuana. I assumed that they all stood around toking a joint.
