Route 66 Trip, May 29 to June 7, 2010

Check this place out!

It's a restored 1930s Sinclair gas station.
It's on old Route 66 in Missouri, between Springfield and Joplin.
If you're getting your kicks on Route 66, and you're in the area, stop by and say hello to Gary.

We were standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona,
and such a fine sight to see... when a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford
slowed down to take a look at us.

    Oh Yes!!  Even major surgery is almost "Drive Through" anymore.

    That is a terrible story about that poor lady being released without someone to help her or provide a ride home.  I don't think that could happen here.  They won't even allow you to walk to the pick up zone.  A hospital employee has to wheel you out in a wheelchair and see that you are safely seated in the car and your belongs are all loaded.   Good laws and good protection for both patient and hospital.

    Foxy, I was shocked that that lady was released in the condition she was released in with no ride home. I didn't think they did that here either!

    I hope they will too, James.  You have never mentioned that they visit her or ever check on her.  I hope they do.  She really needs them now.

    Ouch!!  That had to be a big crash.  Good thing you were not too close to it.  With the weight of all those books, you could have been really hurt.  Glad Julia was there to help with the cleanup.

    I really do hope they do, Foxy, but they don't really have a history of concerning themselves with her. I just learned today that she is coming home Monday, not this Friday.

    The crash was distressing, but the only casualty was one empty wine glass. I was amazed at how fast we got the mess cleaned up. I made an executive decision to part company with some computer programming books. I'm not going to have a career in computer programming at my age.

    Things went well with today's surgery.   If all goes well tonight, she will be going home tomorrow.  Even with major surgery, they do not keep a patient for long these days.

    Foxy,

    I'm glad that her surgery went well!

    You are right. The hospitals these days can't wait to push the patient out the door and move on to the next case.

    About four years ago, at about midnight, I saw a woman walking along the street, and not very well. I stopped and offered her a ride, which she accepted. It turns out that Mercy San Juan Hospital had released her at ten at night right onto the street. So she was trying to walk to her home from the hospital. She had already walked two miles when I came upon her, and her house was another mile and a half.

    Glad your thumb nails are back.  Sure makes life easier.

    Yes. They are very careful in hospitals about patient privacy and protection.  They will only give out information to family or legal guardians.  Her sons should be made aware of her situation, if they don't already know.

    Hi Foxy,

    Yes, her sons know of her condition and her inabilities. I just hope that they are willing to step up when they are needed. Cindy is supposedly coming home Friday. I hope that she is as recovered as she says that she is.

    I had a mini disaster this evening. Right here in my computer room. A bookshelf (one of two, one above the other one) that I put up twenty years ago, loaded with too many books of too much weight, not entirely unexpectedly, finally collapsed under its own weight. Luckily, Julie was here to help with the cleanup.

    That's what I sometimes have to do, James, if I can't remember what is is from the title.

     I am up bright and early this morning.  I have to be at the hospital to see a family member before she goes into surgery.  Do not know how long I will be away today. 
     Don't know how long she will be under the influence of the anesthsia.  Would like to see her awake before I leave the hospital.

    Foxy,

    I hope your hospital visit with your family member went well. I hope your family member's surgery was a success!

    Julia has volunteered to walk me home from the eye doctor after my cataract surgeries, if the doctor will allow me to leave on my scooter. I hope to be able to call the doctor tomorrow and have a conversation about that.

    Today I did a six mile round trip on my scooter to the Home Home Depot and the Walmart next to the Home Depot (not my regular Walmart).

    I went to the Home Depot to have a housekey made for Julia. It was a new destination on my scooter, and a new place that I can add to my list of places that are reachable by scooter.
