Re: o/t the biggest whine ever.!!!!!

Helen, did they give you an answer about whooping cough? That was my first thought when I read your message. I picked it up a couple of years ago here in Japan, and it was really awful for the first few weeks. Even if you've been vaccinated, the protection wears off after some years and now that peo...

Re: am I dead yet? ...

Makes sense the weather would exacerbate your situation. I hope you get a break from the heat and humidity soon - it's really no fair having to deal with high humidity in Arizona. Here in Tokyo, we've been in the rainy season for almost two months now (they call it the "plum rain" season, but that d...

Re: Irelands Own

It's sometimes not so easy being an expatriate, we're always homesick at some level. Of course, I'm from New Jersey, which is maybe not so soulful as Ireland (although we do have claim to Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen). Now that our son is launched to college, we are in theory planning to move...

Re: am I dead yet? ...

It's beautiful. I'm really sorry that life is so trying for you these days, but I think you'd better keep going at least until you've added the guy (gal?) he's shooting at. You don't want to go down as a horse assassin.

This, all by itself, almost justifies the existence of Facebook!

Re: when and why did you get your ICD??

Exactly, I think Melissa has mentioned before her heart problems started from chemo, but I never imagined cancer at 9 years old. The people on this board are just . . . indomitable.

Re: Retired

Absolutely up for the college tour of England! My only brother is in England and we have visited the past two years but used up our vacation on the college tour this year so can't go. One of my nieces recently moved to Ireland, so that would have been on the agenda as well. Last year, we did visit S...

Re: Retired

Helen, he finally settled on a small college in Ohio. It's a very pretty school, set in a picturesque little town, and it has all the things he was looking for. It was a shock to me, as in addition to having lived in Asia for almost thirty years, the only places I've lived in the States are on the E...

Re: Retired

Congratulations! I have spent the past year working on college applications with my son, and there are so many times when I've seen a course being offered by one of the schools he's looking at, and I've thought "Boy, would I like to take that class." And now you'll get to do it - great idea!

Re: Enjoy, the Fourth of July

Thanks, Al, I needed that! Wouldn't it be great if someone could hack one of the giant screens on the Mall on Thursday and show this instead of you know who? (Sorry, Ron)

Re: am I dead yet? ...

Robo, it sounds like you are in the same situation Chrissie was regarding her valve. I assume the new, less invasive methods are not an option for you? The situation you describe sounds ridiculous.

Re: Didya know??

It seems I've been misinformed about the pocket revision issue, but I am glad to know I have some company in the St. Jude camp. Seems to work OK notwithstanding all the recalls.
