WTF Is Going on Here?

This has been an extremely weird and sad day. My bosses boss died over the weekend. I liked her alot and she was a very smart, cool lady. I should have known something was up when my boss called me and requested I call her at home yesterday. That's when she told me the news.

I don't know, it hit me kinda hard. It's difficult to realize that I will never see this woman walk into the office ever again. Man it's weird.

Although we were bought out recently by a VERY large company our office here in MD is still very small. We are pretty close knit here and I love that so everyone is taking this pretty hard. The home office acted quickly and got us grief counselors in early this morning. That was FAST. I must say that it really helped to have them there.

Now here is the crazy part. Women, I know we all want to look our best...God knows I do but we have to really look at the risk we are taking.

This woman died from complications of a tummy tuck. Totally senseless. If you remember....this is the same thing Kanye West's mother died from a few months ago.

OK, if I were ever considering (and I'm not) a tummy tuck this was the wake up call I needed to give that whole nonsense up.

I still can't believe this.

Man, that does suck. The circumstances of her death makes it even harder to understand. Yikes.

Eileen Dover said...

Ugh, just another of those freaky reminders that when your time is up, it really is up.

How sad.

tAnYeTTa said...

wow! that's a shame. :(

Karen said...

So sad. A family friend died getting a face lift a few years ago. He was only 60ish and had kids in high school...just senseless. Not worth it.

1/3 of what I used to be said...

wow, my condolences. Plastic surgery really isnt worth it:-(

Vi said...

OMG! I've always wanted one of them, but I never knew you could DIE from it!

Freckle Face Girl said...

Sorry to hear that news. It is shocking.

My cousin's grandma almost died of a tummy tuck complications. Umm, no thanks. I do it the old fashion way, diet & exercise.

ANO said...

That's sad but anytime you have any surgery, you risk the chance of death. I have a friend who's Aunt died during a Gastric Bypass but it's what she wanted.

dcchick said...

yeah... things like that would be the final straw in my deciding to get any kind of plastic surgery...

is it really worth THAT much???

Eb the Celeb said...

The rate of deaths during plastic surgery has really been on the rise lately... so the question is... is it really worth it folks... your life?

The Ambiguous Blob said...

Oh my god. People really do die from plastic surgery.
I'm so sorry - it's terrible to deal with a loss like this.
I hope the office is able to recover soon.

Vixen said...

Yeah no one ever talks about the cosmetic surgeries that go wrong!

Sorry to hear you're having to deal with it.

One Man’s Opinion said...

Wow, any death is sad to me, even the natural ones, but to think that someone died out of vanity.....wow. That's all I can say.

WrkNProgress said...

Lady I am very sorry about your loss, It's always hard.

I will keep you in my prayers.

Mega Rich said...

So unfortunate to lose your life in that manner.

Pageant Mom said...

I'm so sorry to hear of anyone's untimely death. Especially over something like a tummy tuck...

SSC said...

Sorry to hear about the loss of your boss, that is very sad. I do have to say that Kanye West's mother died from a few months ago because she had heart problems that weren't discussed before the procedure. People who really want something bad enough will over look or not say things in fear of not getting what they want. Plastic surgery. However vain that might be.
It also depends on the doctor as well. Researching your doctor is key, you have to do your homework. The doctor needs to do blood work and all sorts of tests. There are a lot of doctors who are shady and will take your money.

I come from a the side of where I would love to get plastic done. However I will wait for my tummy tuck when I have my last child.

Again I am sorry to hear about the loss of your boss. Again, you don't know what her doctor did or what she might have told them or held back in fear of.

I was going

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

WOW.....that is definitely insane, I can;t imagine. I really odnt do death well, I've ben fucked up over heath ledger since I found out the news, and when peopl i personally KNOW die, its no good....

dmarks said...

I would think one has to be a very bad doctor to kill someone with a tummy-tuck. Sorry to hear this.

Lady~Daydreamer said...

That is awful. Unfortunately today's society does nothing but fuel this cosmetic surgery craze.

KT said...

yes that is awful. but i've gotta say, if i were to have a surgery it'd be a tummy tuck too. i guess that's the risk i'd take.
