I'm in Canada, Addie. Things are much different here. We have Pharmacare which we all pay for (DH's company now pays for us). To go to a specialist the first time or for something new you need a referral. I have seen this doctor before, but it was for my vertigo and that was a couple of years ago. To see him for my throat and sinuses, I have to get another referral. My knee surgeon has stated that any time I have problems to call and make an appointment but it differs from specialist to specialist.

Give ma a pill or a needle. But don't give me a liquid I have to swallow. My throat closes up. I gag, dry heave,vomit and anything else that my throat can conjure up. I know it is all psychological, but I have been this way since childhood. I don't mind needles. I have very small veins and it usually takes several attempts to start an IV on me. That is fine with me. Needles haven't bothered me since the first grade.

It's so aggravating to take my trash out to the trash chute and find I don't have even one pocket to put my keys in. I'm so afraid I'll toss the keys down the chute too.
I have a very soft cotton dress that my daughter bought for me in Florida. It has two pockets and I love it. It is a very summery dress, and I don't care. I wear it all year long. I love the pockets. I used to wear an apron many years ago and they all had pockets.

I've been known to take hand me down clothes and "steal" patch pockets to use on other clothing. I fixed a pair of khaki shorts for a friend with a Tommy Hillfinger denim pocket. They immediately became his favorite.

Saturday 11am

Just returned from the Central Market ... Internet briefly ... and then, lunch preparation ... A typical Italian salad and a pasta called Orecchiette with Vegetables.

I'm drinking espresso lungo and trying to wake up. We have to be out the door in half an hour. We are picking up a couple of friends at the metro (subway station) and then it's off to Ikea. For them it's a ridiculous trek by public transportation to try to get all the way to Ikea. This is mostly an exploration trip, since stuff can be ordered online. She wants to "kick the tires" before buying. He's just a friend who wants to see the store.

I'm sorry, simonbaker. I didn't know as I can't get to every thread to keep updated on things. My prayers are with you, your husband and family.

I HAVE to have pockets. Stupid allergies make my nose run, and the alternative is to stick kleenex up my sleeve like Gramma used to do.

I'm a nurse...I HAVE to have pockets. For everything it might be possible I might need unexpectedly throughout the day.
