Thanks Addie. I'm trying to get some rest.

Weight loss and increased appetite are signs of hyperthyroid. Shreddy's reaction to this is eating more and high protein causing him to drink more water to clear his kidney's. His urine probably smells more like ammonia, too, that is another sign of a high protein diet.

Hugs for Shreddy and more for you!

I just realized I indexed my entire ICD-10 coding book with the tabs facing backwards.

Oh no!

Well, you can always turn the book back-towards-you and read your tabs.

At least I did it with post its and can move them. But I'm thinking two sided tabs would be better. And maybe moving them to the top of the book so they don't catch on the sides. More like book marks instead of tabs.

Looks like a trip to Staples...Darn It!

About 70. There are 2-3 sections to use while coding each diagnosis. Alphabetical Index, Coding Index and on the occasion I am coding a Cancer the Neoplasm Index. What fun I am having!

THREE happy moments for me. Browns win. Squeelers lose. And best of all, the Tribe is in the Wild Card sudden death playoff game! Then again, had the league not gone to this one-game play-in the Tribe would BE the wild card team. C'est la vie. I was hoping for a .500 season back in April.

Some folks are just so darn lucky. They get to have way more fun then me. And I am sitting here laughing at your tabbing problem. Only because during my working days, I have done the same thing with those little gray stick on tabs. All done by hand.

As for scoring:

A Try scores 5 points (which is similar, I suppose, to a touchdown in American football?)
A Conversion scores 2 points (which you can only get after you have scored a Try - bit like a bonus opportunity).
A drop kick scores 3 points (that's where either side can take advantage of the opportunity to kick the ball over the opposing side's goal bar, and between the posts.) The marvellous Jonny Wilkinson famously won the World Cup for England in the last few seconds of a game against Australia in 2003 by doing this. I was in bed with flu at the time and nearly choked on my Lemsip!
A penalty also scores 3 points - same as a drop kick, but only after the ref has awarded a penalty.

Simple, right?
I am more than happy to take your word for it. When I was young(ish) and foolish I dated a Rugby Union referee (well it got him out of my hair on a Saturday afternoon) but I still didn't get the hang of it.
