<quoted text>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?
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!

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.

<quoted text>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?
so I stated the obvious? Again?

<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...

Flower....you made me laugh so much with your wonderful newsy
post...I can see you sitting there in your recliner supervising
the match...haha...there is a player plays for Liverpool, I
love him, called Jamie Carragher, they call him The Lieutenant
as he is always shouting orders to the rest of the team...here is a silly little vid I found dedicatged to him
http://thekop.liverpoolfc.com/_Jamie-Song/vid...
I support Liverpool as well as Manchester, considering I lived in Liverpool as a teen.
Excellent thinking to pick up two pumpkin pies from Marie Callender's...why go to all the bother...you be careful now on 183 d'ya hear me?!
Off to see Skyfall tomorrow afternoon, it's an hour's run to the multi complex cinema from here so will combine with lunch out and pick up Barti's repeat prescription on the way back and a few bits and bobs from the store.
Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
Much Love, <3 xoxox

Hi Boomer...I appreciate what you are saying, it's a complicated issue all round.
Best to leave well alone as there is always the exception to the rule.
Over here, we tend to joke about ourselves in the following manner...'there was an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman....'
now the funny thing, I can't think of any time I saw a 'Welshman' included in the scenario.
Discrimination?

Grace....I take it that your relative is going for an Out Patient's visit. Under the circumstances (the bug being
prevalent in the hospital) is it vital that she keeps the
appointment? Not to create more worries, but if she is
not well herself, surely she would be vulnerable to picking
up anything, and possibly carrying it back home.
I wouldn't go near the place speaking bluntly and wouldn't wish
anybody else to do so.
But that is me.
An alternative suggestion is to 'phone the hospital in advance,
arrange for a porter with a wheelchair to meet, and wait in your car for her return. Take a flask and some sandwiches with you
and a rug for your knees.
Speaking honestly and no offence. Just concern.

Those are excellent ideas too El,
well worth remembering, and thanks,
re your not 'going near the place' comment
I agree with you 100%, these bugs are smart enough
in seeking us out, we certainly don't have 'to put ourselves'
in their path!!!!

Re your other #19016 above,

THANKS for that El..appreciated.

There's a new series - just started here,
called LOVE/HATE its home brew 100%[Irish]

it depicts the sub-culture here and how they live,
crime, drugs, drive by shootings etc.

Kind of > an aspect of life in 21 century.

Though [obviously] very violent,
it is extraordinarily well done,
I heard rumor that the BBC are after it..
will let you know in time.

With this wishing all a happy Wednesday.
