Tell Me More.....

Nights and Sunday’s

Coping with the death of a spouse is a terrible experience.   And you don’t know “which one of us is going to have to deal with that”.  Whenever me and my husband have talked about it (when we had to) during the preparation of our will, I told him “Honey, I want you to die…

Owning A Dog or Cat Can Reduce Stress

It was December 17, 1993.  A month prior I moved from my hometown in Michigan to Florida, where my parents moved to 6 months prior.  I decided I wanted a dog!  My first very own loveable dog!!!  Back in 1993 dogs were still available in shopping malls, you don’t see that much anymore.  Well, actually…

Catheter Care

Like many bedridden patients, my Mother has a foley.  She has been faced with chronic UTI’s with ecoli for the past 2 years one after another after another.  It was suggested that she have a suprapubic catheter put in place (which requires surgery).   We did – but it didn’t work for my Mom (she is…

June Is National Safety Month

I read this on the Internet and I found it useful:   June is considered National Safety Month across the country, so the National Safety Council is encouraging everyone to pay particular attention to staying safe this summer. This applies to all people, not just drivers. Many accidents are preventable when you simply practice safer…

Why Can’t I See My Medical Files?

Our complex healthcare system is moving in directions that continue to confuse us and make us wonder “What the heck is going on?”.  Everyone should be thinking “I better start tracking my own medical information….I need a PHR for myself and my family.”  I’m not suggesting to “do your own surgeries” or “diagnose yourself with…

The Little Things

It’s summertime, so my daughters are home from school.  Of course they love, love, love to get their nails painted – (all different colors of course).  I promised them we would go today to get our nails done. Last night, while putting my Mother to bed she asks (as she always does) “What’s the plan…

Another Great Testimonial

Thank you David B. from Huntsville, Alabama for another great testimonial! “As you have shown, keeping your own copy of critical medical information gives you more control over critical medical decisions, and more inner peace in the midst of those decisions, whether as a patient or a caregiver.” So true!  Don’t wait until you’re faced…
