Believe it or not we have about 9 days straight in Missouri. Whatever will we do......so far the same...... We have done tons of computer work in prep for next trip and finishing up odds and ends from last trip. We have started to do some spring cleaning, which at this point means, cleaning the corners of all the rooms, rearranging some odds and ends, washing all knick knacks so they shine and then the ordinary stuff a little heavier, dusting, vaccuuming and all that fun stuff. Oh yeah and we also recovered all cat toys that were under couches and furniture, (made the cats happy) which is always a good thing. They look so happy when we come off the road and spend some time with them. Haven't gotten into planting flowers, because we hope to be out of this house in the summer, so don't want to do a lot here. But........we have relaxed some, we went to a great Easter Brunch at Boone's Tavern with Dad and Bruce and then back to Bruces to just sit outside and relax. Arthur even got to lay in the hammock and nap, which was well deserved. We have had 2 nites at home to catch up on TIVO and will do more so tonight, we commented last night, we are almost living like regular people, we watched TV 2 nites in a row, cooked dinner at home last night with plans to do the same tonight ( I don't remember when we have had 2 homecooked meals in a row) But tomorrow don't worry, we aren't getting that mundane we plan to eat out at the Lake. Today we work here in Columbia and tomorrow at Lebanon and that is it for the week for Tri-State disability. Arthur is working Mon, Thur, and Fri. here in town with Dr. Travis and yesterday I went to RaceWerX and did some accounting stuff, will do the same on Thursday. Call me weird, but I really miss that type of work. Ok, speaking of boring, I'm sure if you have stayed this long you are bored too. To Jason and Susan, I dreamed last night I got a letter from Susan telling me they had picked the name for the baby. Let's just say this I hope it was just a bad dream. To Leslie, hang in there, work hard, you will be home soon.

Just when I thought Ahoskie could not get anymore boring..................... I was just entering the very last bit of data for the patient that was there and I hear her gasp, I look over, she is clutching her chest, gasping, trying to breath, she grabbed my arm and I thought she might break it. Meanwhile I call out for Arthur, he looks in the room and shouts call 911. But then she starts to relax, pain subsides, she describes pain as crushing on her chest, down through her left arm to her fingers, she is still holding her chest and saying it hurts but not as much. The other woman working in the office we use, is on the phone talking to 911 operator, ( the hospital is literally across the street ) the chiropractor who has the office, goes out front to get the girls mother. She comes back and is quite calm, saying, "baby is this a bad one, does it hurt worse than it usually does. Meanwhile my hand is numb from her clutching it. So we hear the siren and we go to back door to open it and then once again she has an attack, so there I am in there basically alone with her. Her Mom has stepped out into hall so paramedics will have room to get into exam room. So they talk to her, ask questions, her blood pressure was sky high, I had taken it 5 min. before and it was 198/119. They ask about that and take her away, they stay outside for a long time and then go away from hospital to end of block to turn around and then I hear siren again a minute later and they are now rushing to hospital. So I don't know what happened to her. It was quite the experience.

It is 1:00 a.m. here and I think I'm home in Columbia. I know we got home from Europe, although only really home long enough to do a lot of laundry, get reaquanted with the cats, who by the way, were just a little pissy that we had been gone so long, then repack again. Tuesday, after getting home Sunday evening, we got up and drove to Mississippi for work on both Wed. and today Thursday. Lovely way to spend my b'day, in the car and driving. Oh well, such is life. We left Oxford, MS at 3:30 this afternoon and we were home about 11:15 p.m. Just getting caught up on stuff here we have to do for work after every clinic. I just thought I would write a note here and say hello to all. This is probably far from a logic post, but you can't expect more from an old tired woman. I will add, that although Oxford, MS is a really really nice town, I liked being in Oxford, England much better. Miss you Leslie, hurry home xoxoxoxoxo to all.
