Still struggling with breathing/asthma. I went to a work training today and no one wanted to partner with me (pairing up to practice defensive tactics). Tomorrow I see my pdoc.

You have been suffering for quite awhile with asthma. I have asthma, too, and know it can be so very trying. ihope you feel better soon.

Why are you getting so defensive?
(practice defensive tactics)

i hope you have a great day!

I'm sorry you are going through this Christina. You are pragmatic and I'm sure you'll find a way through this.

Good morning! We have snow!!!

My aunt, who has been having heart attacks, has been transferred to 2 university hospitals. She is now at one iin a different state. This surgeon is willing to try to save her life. Any surgery is very risky at this point. Her surgery starts approx 11 am and, if all goes well, will last 4-5 hours. I hope nobody minds my asking for any prayer, positive thoughts, supportive energy, anything positive sent her way. If you are so inclined, its much appreciated.

Scooter, thinking of you! I hope all has returned to baseline.

I have a semi-busy day ahead.

I hope everyone has a fruitful day!

Polibeth, I hope your asthma eases soon. I'm sorry you have to suffer with this.

Christina, you know that I am on the side of getting people better, cheaper, and more comprehensive healthcare. I will keep pushing for that, for people like you. Hugs

Wild Coyote, I'm sorry to read that your aunt is so ill. Sending my best to her and to you and your family!

I'm going to get my hair cut today. It needs it, especially my bangs.

Yesterday, my sister called to tell me that the psychologist that visited my father at the physical rehabilitation center informed her that my father agreed to enter an inpatient alcohol rehab program upon his release from the physical rehab. I told my sis that makes me cautiously optimistic. She agreed. He can be quite fickle, so it's possible that decision will change as the day for the transfer nears. The psychologist said they are still trying to secure a bed at the alcohol rehab. She said that if they cannot get the bed right away that they do NOT want him to return home. They would rather find him space in a temporary assisted living facility. [People, places, and things are a real issue, so going home now is risky.]

I do want to add that Dad looks and sounds better after all these weeks, but it's up to him to stay that way.
