if the destruction of the gulf is upsetting to you than you can go to and sign a petition to add to the millions who want justice done for all those that have suffered due to the BP gulf spill.
It cost nothing.
So just do it!

admiration   Leave a comment

last night when I took my daughter to the ER, I met a man who I have had the greatest admiration for
As we sat there, (me sitting on a chair and her laying down on the bed) who would walk in but the famous (Famous to me) Dr. Huss.
Now you may have never heard of him but the man has done something that I find very cool.
he has tried to climb Mt Everest.
I say tried because he has climbed four times and never made it completely to the summit, but imagine the experience of just trying!!!
I have to give him great credit for trying.

He walked into our emergency room last night and shook Emily’s hand after asking her name, and then shook my hand and I told him my name and I said “And you are the famous Dr who climbed Mt Everest!”
And of course he said “Not famous and I have never reached the summit”
And I said “Maybe not the entire thing but you have done it in my book and I greatly admire you for that”
Emily pops up with “Mom is your greatest fan!”
Which I’m not, but I think it is awesome to meet someone who has not only gone to the bottom of Mt Everest four times, but tried to climb it four times.
I think the closest he has gotten to the summit was 500 feet shy of it.
I say KUDOS for him for living a dream of mine!

 He said to me then “We should all have such an expensive hobbie”
Which we both laughed at, because it is extremely expensive to even stand at the bottom of Everest.

emergency room visit   Leave a comment

well I was at home last night and at six forty-five my daughter calls crying with pain in her stomach.
I took her up to the hospital (20 miles away) thinking it was her appendix and that it had burst.
nope, it was a ruptured ovarian cyst.
I have had them and they are quite painful.
She is off work today with orders to rest and take medicine (hydrocodone) for pain.

so that was a little bit of excitement in my little corner of the world last night….
