USA Hospital personel in Mobile Al

Saturday, October 10, 2009

I haven't been on the computer since Sept 28th the day a tree (a very large tree) rolled over on my husband and broke his back. Today is the first time I woke up in my own bed since then. He was transfered to re-hab yesterday afternoon and will start the serious re-hab work on Monday and I will go back to work and just go visit him in the evening for a little while. The re-hab is in a hospital about 50 miles away so I will still be a little tired but nothing compared to the past 2 weeks.

Feeling very blessed to see him recovering so quickly after this accident that could have taken his life and then 2 major surgeries just days apart (one Friday and then the other on Monday).

I was impressed to see the hospital giving all the patients multi vitamins and extra folic acid. Even though hospital food has it's pros and cons at least they are facing up to the fact that alot of it doesn't get eaten and even more of it doesn't have all that much nutritional value.

USA Trama hospital will always have my praises. They are always in the red because so many of their patients don't have means or the insurance that we are fortunate to have but they have greatskilled caring people working there. I am so grateful. Ace let the students practice on him too. He is a good sport.

Definitely feeling grateful and blessed to the team work of the personel at USA. Skilled doctors, nurses that pattern they attitude after Florence Nightingale and students eager to learn. Hopefully I won't see them do their job so well again but I will be eternally grateful for seeing them do their jobs so well this time.

    Keeping you in my prayers. Please take care of yourself through all of this, you need to stay strong and healthy. The hospital sounds wonderful and I am sure he is in good hands. Try not to worry to much, if that is even possible:) Bless You. Sandy emoticon

First Blog Attempt: pc is sick or dead

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

Yesterday when I got home from work I was the only one in the neighborhood without electricity. It seems the transformer at the end of my driveway is an isolated supply source for just us. They got it back up in a few hours in time for me to watch Dance you A'' Off. BUT this morning when I pushed the power button to my pc nothing happened. Yuk!! I had it plugged into a surge protector but it must not have been a very good one. I dropped the pc off at the repair shop to have it checked out but they are backed up for at least a week and a half. So I will just have to be computerless at home until they can see if it can be repaired or if I have to make a new plan.

I am so lucky that my job is actually an extension of my friendship with Tofudee (she owns the shop) and I can use the pc at the shop for my personal use otherwise I would surely go into withdrawals. I can use any free time I might have or I can use before or after hours since I do have a key. TofuDee has always been my computer angel. She built the first pc I ever owned.

My deliver truck is here so this isn't free time and I better get back to work.
