Med Students

My neighbor called this morning in a panic and asked if I could please drive her and her teen-aged daughter to the hospital. She didn’t want to call an ambulance, but she had no transportation until her husband got home late tonight with the family car. Of course I agreed to drive her. Her daughter looked very pale and sweaty and I was very concerned for her health. I suspected heat exhaustion – but it could have been something even worse.

We got o the hospital quickly and without incident and I helped them get in the ER entrance. She asked me to not bother staying at the hospital – she just need the ride to get there. That is not the way I was raised – I felt a duty to go inside and make sure she would be treated and taken care of – not just drop someone off and drive away. I don’t care how many white lab coat doctors, med students and nurses were milling about – I needed to know that she would be seen.

It has been a couple of years since I’ve even seen a lab coat or pair of scrubs anywhere. Thankfully I’ve been healthy and not been around hospitals much. In fact, the last time I saw anyone in scrubs is when I went online and ordered a Halloween costume for my nephew, who wanted to go trick or treating dressed as a med student flunky, with fake blood smeared all over his shirt and gloves.

Health and Beauty Issues

Today’s technologies are simply brilliant these days, with state of the art facilities and products available while all becoming more affordable we now have the ability to do just about anything to anyone as we please. The medical field is a fascinating field, one that is growing faster then most of us can keep up with. I enjoying the various television shows that are centered around the medical field. House has become one of my favorite shows as of late, an interesting program, as well as entertaining, to say the least.

Dermatology has a lot to offer these days, liposuction in chicago is being done at Lakeview Dermatology, in the Park Ridge area, which is a leading dermatology clinic that specializes in laser acne treatments, liposuction, hair removal treatments, Restylane treatments and many other skin care treatments as well, which are making numerous people so much happier with their bodies and their health. We are a population of people overly concerned with our appearance so this is a great field to be in these days.

Not only are we concerned with looks for appearance sake, but for numerous health reasons as well. I know several people that have turned to these type of procedures, all of them are very happy with their results, no law suites are pending and everyone is happy with their new looks and their longer life expectancies.

Outdoor Hot Tubs and Their Covers

What I wouldn’t give to have a nice hot tub to soak in after a long hard day around here. It would be great to have one set up right out on the side porch, a perfect place for a good sized hot tub, outside, but not too far from the side door. Of course if I ever get enough cash together to purchase one I would need to then search for good quality hottub covers, since it would be out in the weather all year, it would need to be made to last and plenty durable, like the ones advertised at Hottubs2buy.co.uk.

Maybe this is something that I need to look at when I get next year’s tax refund check.

Infomercials

Could not sleep last night, so I turned on the TV and thought it might bore me back to sleep. I rarely stay awake past the late night news. Every once in a while I try to watch a little of the David Letterman Show. But honestly, it’s hard to stay up that late and be productive the next day.

For some reason I could not sleep and the Letterman Show was long over with. After his show was another talk show / variety show kind of thing with a guy named Craig Ferguson. He was funny, but in a forced and giddy way. I don’t know that I liked his show much. Then, after that is some celebrity gossip show. I could care less which celebrities are arrested for DUI or getting divorced. I thought surely that would put me to sleep. But no.

Then, they ran an old episode of Star Trek the Next Generation. I could not believe that clock said it was after 2:00 am and I’m still awake. So then, they started a commercial to sell something to do with buying and selling foreclosed homes. That’s what finally did it – that infomercial put me to sleep within the first couple minutes of that boring show.

Got Milk?

Was watching the news yesterday morning (I’m thinking it was The Today Show) and they were running a story about how within a short period of time milk is going to cost $6.00 a gallon! They were blaming the increasing cost of fuel for the increase, which is the reason that the price is rising on just about everything.I think that is horrible! Milk is going to become a luxury item at that price! For many years there has been a huge campaign about how healthy milk is, but I think that people will end up drinking more sugary fruit flavored drinks like kool-aid instead of drinking milk if it gets that expensive! If milk gets that expensive, I imagine the milk related products like cheese, ice cream, butter and yogurt will rise in price as well!

Again, I think that is going to be driving people towards eating the cheap junk food instead of dairy product.

love me some milk
