Matilda the Dane

I had a lot of people write to me about Matilda after I wrote my last post regarding her serious health crisis. Here’s the UPDATE:

No lymphoma. YES! She has been diagnosed with Addison’s Disease though, an adrenal gland malfunction. Last week she had what they call an Addisonian Episode. Prognosis is much, much better (not fatal) and I will begin to exhale easier when she starts eating on her own. Have you ever wrestled a dog that weighs more than a super model and stuffed pills wrapped in treats down her throat and then tried to wash it down with liquid so she would swallow them? Suffice it to say, “Mom” with food means pills and wrestling. “Dad” with food means happy treats. Isn’t that how it always goes? Good cop…bad cop.

If we can get this under control with medication, we may have our girl for a few more years. I am incredibly relieved. We will know more about her condition as we monitor her in the days to come, but for now, I am beyond happy to have her gigantic Schmooeyness back in the house.

Thanks to all who sent good wishes. She would lick your face if you were here. Pretend she just did. Now go wash your face.

Former columnist for the Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel covering metaphysics, she got to interview the likes of Brian Weiss, The Amazing Kreskin and Apollo 14 astronaut, Edgar Mitchell. Mimi’s love of words became obvious to her parent’s at age four during high mass as she stood on the pew seat to rally the congregation- “Hey! Let’s everybody sit down!” She’s been a tour guide out west and has *too many* years of tourism marketing consulting, designing promo collateral, commercial scripts for TV/Radio, freelance writing, resume and bio coaching and large event planning. A poet, artist, world traveler, mom of two phenomenal kids; in the wee hours she has three finished fiction manuscripts, a published book of erotica, and two blogs and is a self-confessed Pinterest addict. Owner of a fabulous destination wedding and event venue in northern Michigan and a board member of the Northport Chamber of Commerce and Leelanau UnCaged Music & Art Street Festival planning committee. Currently writing a non-fiction book of unusual blessings that her friend/agent is kicking her rear to finish. Member of RWA, MMRWA, CCWA and former CCWA Board. www.wordninjagirl.com
