Very good day here -
Speeding into Xmas-
Grandson studying hard taken over my laptop! Lol
That, among other things , is what GrannMas are for(:
What's new!
On a more serious note -
I find myself in a bit of an awkward situation-
Am put in a position of accompanying a relative
(Who 'needs ' physical assistance )
For a hospital appmnt-
(The hospital is near where I live
And very far from where the relative & immediate family live)
Thing is there's a serious outbreak
Of the winter vomiting super bug'
there at present, patient visiting has
even been suspended
I honestly don't want to take ANYchances with this
Plus the fact that I'm on heart medication-
I simply don't want to go in there.
I've been there for this relative 'all other times'
Without a problem or regret
But, this is different
A close friend said
'You owe it to yourself to do whats best for ' you'
Too'
Any opinions from the wise and intelligent
Folks on this thread would be welcome indeed-
And please be honest-
If you think I'm being mean don't hesitate in saying so
I'd prefer & Appreciate that
Thanks
we have a bug going around here too .. no vomitting but phlem and cough and fatigue and it goes on for about 2 weeks.

HOw immobile is this person?

Can you get them to the door and then you go spend an hour or two shopping or at a coffee shop, etc while they are attended to in the hospital, and where a nurse can help them navigate from place to place in the hospital? Can you get a third party fiend, who is not as worried abut catching the bug, to accompany them within the hospital while you stay outside of it?

I hope your freind can appreciate that in yuor conditoin you can't afford to risk catching something as destructive as this bug going around because you are more susceptable to complications.

Is your presence truly required or is it moral support?

I can hardly believe I spoke to anybody like I
just did to Denny...who am I...Topix police already?! lol

Perhaps I misunderstood the joke, regardless,
not falling out with you over it D.

Off to catch an hour of tv before bed, a new
series starting tonight.

Thank you Franko. Yes the oldest daughter was born just a few days after Christmas, so she knows all about folks giving her a birthday/Christmas gift. The only time I ever did that was when she asked for an item more expensive than I would've gotten for one or the other, but suitable as a combined gift. But it was her suggestion. My mom has had to share her BD with Thanksgiving several times. Her immediate family has always made sure to have a celebration just for her on the nearest weekend.
How is it going with your kids?

Franko,

I was thinking of many of the alternatives
you mentioned.

My friend walks with a walking aid and needs
a person by her for support,
with her condition
[motorneuron] she can lose control of her legs
at a moment's notice.

That's not a bad idea..
re bringing her to the door
and have a nurse take over from there.

It's a virulent strain, a deadly bug to be taken lightly
and takes it's toll on the 'older person'
whose immunity would not be 100%

I shall have to make it my priority
NOT to go there, and from there
build around it.

Thanks truly, Franko
for your helpful suggestions..

Much appreciated.

GREAT we can share these varied 'everyday' problems here which affect us ALL..

in different ways.
on different days!

Interesting about the horses, thanks.
>>laughing out loud<< IDK Lady El, I am now totally confused, haha ... I just watch the game ... I made a report in the sixth grade about American football and I thought I had the game totally figured out by the 6th grade and still think I do, LOL ... don't ask me, I'm just the recliner arm chair official, haha ...

Hello, my friend ... I hope this day finds you, P and the four legged children in good health and in good spirits ... too much going on in too little of time ... kind of makes me nervous as a cat near a rocking chair, ha!... it's my responsibility to show up for Thanksgiving dinner with two pumpkin pies and I DON'T COOK!... I can go by Marie Callender's and pick up 2 pumpkin pies tomorrow ... that store makes the best short of going downtown to Central Market ... Marie Callender's is on 183 and everyone knows how I feel about Highway 183 ... >>makes the sign of the cross<< "pray for me on 183" lol ... I took my friends 12 year old daughter to watch Breaking Dawn: part 2 of the Twilight saga yesterday at the movies ... we had chinese food for lunch prior to watching the movie which was very good ... so that is it for the the saga ... last week I watched the movie Lincoln which was very very good ... I still want to watch the new James Bond movie on the big screen ... Denny said it was very good ... I've got 2 books from the library which have not gotten my attention ... TOYS by James Patterson, yuck! I read the whole book and although it got many great reviews it just wasn't my cup of tea ... My friend from Florida gave me an author who wrote murder mysteries as a forensic base and I cannot remember the name of the author so I'll have to call her back and ask her and write the name down this time so I can visit the library and check out some books for the holidays to keep me busy and out of the malls, lol ... my Christmas shopping is complete!... Well, I'm rambling now so I'll rest your eyes ... Have a nice day and TTYS ... Good day! Much love, FC <3 ...

Lady El and others, please understand that culturally speaking some jokes play well in those cultures. On the outside of any culture it would seem people are being disrespectful.
I enjoy a joke as much as the next person. It is good to laugh at oneself.
However, don't assume that since I look like you, I think like you.

can you call the hospital and request the sort of help you will require? Plan it in advance for the time when the appointment will be?

<quoted text>the AMerican football had a situation earlier this year where the referees were on strike and so they called in replacement referees who had worked in none-NFL games but were experienced referees. The end result was that poor calls did occur at a higher frequency and which appeared to decide some close games.
I think if the poor calls evened out between both teams that is not too bad.
But in a case like this ENgland-AUSSIE match, where the calls always seemed to go against one team while identical infraction by the other team were ignored, then I agree an inquiry into that referee's work should be made, and at least several game susspension withuot pay should result.
I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing that at top level, the referee's performance is reviewed and decisions made about his (or her) suitability to ref more games at that level. Problem in the UK is that even the top referees are not paid much - in most cases it is not thier full-time job, so suspension won't achieve a great deal.

Hi NM...

It all panned out quite well, quite pleased really.
Having a rest today after hauling mattresses around!

Counting down to Thanksgiving now, are you looking
forward to it? It's a hectic time with Christmas so
close I know, but taking this opportunity to wish you
a very Happy Thanksgiving.

We will be having a cyber party here in the kitchen...
