I am sure the gas prices feel like this picture for a lot of us. I don't mean to sound old,,,but I was trying to recall what the price of gas was when I was a child and walked the mile to the nearest store and watched people put gas in their cars. I know it was under a dollar. But the exact price I don't recall. My family never owned a car,,,,my dad did drive every now and then but he never had a license. And we never seemed to miss not having transportation any where. If we had to go some where my folks thought for sure some one else was going there and we could just catch a ride with a phone call or by standing on the side of the road. Perhaps that is why I pay no attention to the price at the pump,,,or where the gauge on my vehicle is. It is a wonder I have never ran out of gas any where. Today was a very pretty autumn day,,,again. Yet I wish we were in the 80's,,to me that is perfect weather. I dreaded getting up again,,,shit I set the alarm for 5;30 am,,,got up at 6:50,,,,into the shower and out the door by 7:30. Made it to my house hold tech job by 8am. Finished and raced home by 10:40--changed into a more appropriate out fit for my private duty at the hospital,,,,got there by 12:15,,,,I really hate the long drive,,,45-50 minutes to get there. I raced to the trauma unit,,,only to find my patient gone----moved to a different room--improvement. Now she is in a room with just one other person and not in eyesight of a nurse. She is getting better,,but it is a slow process. One DR. was in the "eye guy"...he said she has lost all vision in the right eye,,and is hoping that the swellin in the inner eye lid will go down in thime or with steroids or they might have to cut it out. My patient is ready to go home but her I & O need improvement and also her mobility is still dead weight. I have a hard time transporting her any where,,,so we need to work on that......at this stage she is still totally dependent on help. Not able to bring a glass up to her mouth for a drink....not able to remember how to press the button for help,,,,I asked her roommate if she hears her to please call nurse. Her roomie is young in her 40's or 50's,,,and mobile,,,after my tour of duty,,(mail thingy),,,I will get back up there and check on her.,,,,I really hope she makes a come back full swing,,,so her son in law and daughter who are counting on their windfall and move to "Florida",,find that karma really does exists. Some time I might explain them people but for now,,I am thankfull she has 3 great sons and they love her and put her best interest above thiers. Now I have been a very busy person,,,putting every one before me,,,but I am taking some ZZZ's,,,,Happy Trails!!!!!##########################################THE WORK OF STEVEN WRIGHT: I woke up one morning and all of my stuff had been stolen... and replaced by exact duplicates.I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.
