I am glad that I went to the gym, the pool felt wonderful. I just got out of the shower feeling very relaxed, time for bed soon.

I just threw together some CP pea soup with a ham bone, after all the discussion it got me to thinking. We're going to a trivia night tomorrow, and we're all supposed to bring some food to share. Hmm. Better get out some bowls and spoons too.

Kylie, it is an artificial tree. :( we had to do that because we have 20-25 ft ceilings. (Our tree is 12 ft.). I thought a smaller one would look funny so we bought the artificial one, as finding/getting/buying a fresh 12 foot tree every year would be cost prohibitive, not to mention trying to put lights on one( ours is pre-lit). I resisted artificial trees until we built this home and it just seems to work best for us. What about you? I am not familiar with all of the types of trees in Oz, I know that there is 20% forest land, but probably different from N. American forests :)

Thanks Vit! I am slowly getting it decorated and will post a pic when I reach that goal. Yes I am Lucky to have high ceilings :). Except when we have to clean ceiling fans and chase cobwebs ;-). Not complaining mind you, I am very fortunate to live in this home, I have to pinch myself sometimes!

The last time I went to see her, she was determined to get that nail out of the corner. Now if you heard Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow, STOP, wouldn't you get the idea you may be hurting the patient and doing something wrong? My toe began bleeding and she had to bandage it. The nursing staff sent me to a foot doctor that they use off site to take a look at it. He had me coming back twice a week for three weeks until it healed. I was unable to wear my shoes during that whole time. I no longer will let her even glance at my feet as I walk by.

And yes, they still use her. She is under contract. But a lot of patients refuse to let her treat them. So they are seen by the off site doctor.
Kinda like Shrek and the mean urologist, you woulda thought he'd have more sympathy/empathy for a male patient.

The first "ow" is the first clue to stop and everyone step back and take a deep breath. The second "ow" it stops, period. When you hurt someone and don't stop to at least acknowledge and regroup, the patient loses all faith in you and anything you try is going to hurt.

If it hurts you pre-medicate or find a numbing agent or find someone who is more skilled than yourself to try.
