arriving home in KZ after a long, arduous journey and seeing my husband........also helping out an old man (well, older than me :):)) who I "doctored" as I was the only one to come to his assistance when they announced that they needed a doctor....when I saw noone going to the back to help I stepped in as I had had some student nursing training though I was sure to them I was no doctor nor nurse...they didn't care they were just happy for some help...I "diagnosed" him with being dehydrated after eliminating heart attack, dementia, and low blood sugar...took his pulse after calming him down as we took deep breaths together and it was normal for his age..... went to my "black doctor's bag" andgave the steward some rehydration powder to mix with water and told them to give it to him as often as he could tolerate it (imagine drinking saltwater) but he looked and felt immensely better awhile later.....I was called "Dr. Debe" in Cairo...:):) What a feeling!!

Picture it...
5:30 AM, my DH half asleep, comes to me as I'm at the computer and says...
"I need help!" It seems he didn't line up the zipper on his jacket (he was on his way to work) and had it messed up. I almost didn't get it unzipped and was ready to tell him he was stuck wearing it for the rest of his life. Well at least it wasn't the zipper in his slacks and him getting something else stuck in the zipper.

Debs, I am so proud of you! Maybe you should go on to get your nursing or doctor's degree!

GOMK, Thanks for the laugh!

thanks, Laurie, it was a huge plane and couldn't believe there wasn't even one person to assist........part of the problem was that most people were asleep and probably didn't hear the request........oh, well, I made the right diagnosis and had the rehydration powder on my carry-on...........I would love to be a doctor but we didn't have much money when I was in college.....the staff assured me that they would take his blood pressure and give him some oxygen

My older sister telling me I did good in researching a care home for our Dad to go to and offering our home while he waits to get in. This is big because I have always been the "baby", unable to make grown up decisions or actions!
