Ooooh, Lorna! I hope you a) find out why you passed out. b) heal quickly c) come up with a funny story to tell everyone in the future about your scar. Of which, I cannot think of one funny thing to make out of this …( Trying to use puns…" I was trying for a one night stand, but decided on the fancy dresser. " [rimshot] ")
[hijack] I love this story.
I had a friend who when she was about 8 or 9 passed out with out any medical explanation. ( It happened alot and the doctors were stumped.)
Anywhooo, one day, whilst camping (RV’ing, not tenting) her mother was *cooking bacon * over a camp fire. My friend passed out face first * into the bacon ( her mom was holding the pan and looking for something , you know, * over there. Looked back, and there is her daughter, face down in the sizzling hot grease.
Mom scooped her out, threw her on the ground, poured the ice cooler on her face and dad ripped down all the clothes lines and what not attached to camper and raced in the camper to the nearest hospital. She wore facial bandages for the rest of the summer. Her mother was never burned.
Her lips were the longest to heal, but to this day (she is nearly 40) you cannot tell she was every severely burned except when she gets really hot, her laugh lines by her mouth get red. [That’s it. * ]. And, her lips hold lipstick *all day long * without reapplication no matter what brand she gets. I guess that is the small karma payback from the Powers That Be for going through so much.
I don’t think she ever had another passing out attack after that.
