Carlos C. In Hospital Again; Possible Surgery
Doctors discovered Carlos C. had residual blood in his chest cavity that may now be infected and require surgery. This morning Carlos and the family will meet with surgeons to discuss whether treatment will be needed. Surgery was aborted last night when it was found that Carlos' Cumadin levels were too high posing a his risk for bleeding during surgery.

Long Story Short
Frankie H. will be laid to rest today. Frankie died last Thursday of liver and kidney failure. Services will be held at Owens Funeral Home in Harlem, between 3-7 p.m. Ronald, who worked with Frankie at North General Hospital in NYC, died last Tuesday. The cause of his death is still unknown. Monday, NYC celebrates their yearly Halloween parade. Although the parade was primarily a gay function it has now gained wide straight attendance and support. Ladies... are we going together this year?

On Blast
Try as I may... Sometimes the exposure to frequent death, illness and tragedy can inspire a sense of detachment in people. I've recently felt that I'm becoming emotionally numb in an effort to methodically handle the negative instances in my life.
Name one instance that has affected your life so greatly that you may have shut down emotionally to cope with it?

Keep passin' the open windows...
