I might have just treated myself to a cross stitch order. It's all tools and accessories. Mostly special needles I can't get in the Netherlands. I did splurge on a cute pair of scissors, which was the only thing not on sale. Everything else was 15% to 20% off. They didn't have two Q-Snap frames in stock that I also want, so those I will order when they come back in stock.

Just completed the weekly chore of getting food; it's funny but eating seems to be a weird habit that I have picked up over the years!

Spent Friday night ... the entire night ... in the ER - a bit of a health scare, but all seems OK today and I'm back home with the cats. Duke ER waiting room was packed - if I weren't vaccinated I'd have been panic stricken. But my covid test there was negative. Will probably re-test in a week, just to be sure.

A relief to be home and know it was a false alarm, but oy! the ER! They’re like roach motels; once they’ve got you, getting them to sign you out takes forever.

Knowing that the "walking wounded" population (to which I belonged) would have an incredibly long wait, they immediately put IV lines into us so that we were forced to stay. I spent 12 hours in the waiting room, where it is impossible to sleep, and was finally put in an exam room at 5:30 am. Since no doctor materialized, I fell asleep for 3 hours.

The only thing that got me through the night was my Kindle Oasis ereader.

About 3 weeks ago, I took a family member over to emergency, it was a 3 hour wait to see a physician. We were told that as long the waiting area wasn't crowded, I could remain but if it started getting crowded, I would have to wait outside.

About an hour into our wait, one family that showed up as a 11 person group and didn't want to listen when the staff suggested that only 2 of them could be permitted to remain in the waiting area. It took a trio of police officers to convince them that 9 of them would be better off elsewhere.

I'm not sure why what looked like 3 grandparents, 4 parents and 4 kids from 12 to 18 were needed for one grandparent to be checked over in emergency. Though on the bright side, all 11 were wearing masks.

Yikes! I hope it's better than "seems to be okay!"

I've had mixed results with ERs. A few years ago I took my son to an ER after a skateboard accident -- he did a face plant onto pavement and looked much worse than it turned out to be -- which was still pretty bad. He wound up waiting a bit, but got moved into a treatment room pretty quickly. EDIT: He was wearing a helmet, but it didn't have a face guard. Most helmets intended for bikes and skateboards don't have much to protect the face.

On the other hand, the last time I went to an ER for myself the nurse at the desk asked me why I was there. My answer -- "I'm bleeding and I can't get it to stop." -- didn't shorten the wait. (It's okay -- a ruptured varicosity -- but without a couple of stitches it would have been more problematic.)


Anyway, I'm glad you're home and I hope all is well!

Slowly absorbing the fact that an old friend passed away last Monday,and none of his friends (self included) knew about it until Friday.

I'm so sorry Timebus. Losing a friend is hard, but when you don't learn about it for such a time is even harder.

Thank you. It was also the anniversary of another death in our circle of family/friends, so somehow the shock seemed deeper. But hey ho, we have to carry on or what is the point?

Somehow I missed this. I'm very sorry to hear it.
