I love the red and white '55. The Oldsmobile was the only car I remember that seemed to raise equally a few inches when it took off. It did not squat in the rear like the Chevy or Ford.
I can't help it, I count and figure in my head. Hiking I find my self counting. There are about 2000 steps in a mile. The steps in this hospital over at the hotel are ten to a flight, making it 20 between floors. Over here in what is called 'Patient Towers' there are 12 steps per flight making it 24 steps between floors. I know, I know, important useless information. Did youknow that the code nationally is no more than 8" per step. 7" is a good step and the landing or step itself cannot be less than 10". Oh ho says you this is important stuff!!!
It takes me 1 min 40 seconds to climb the seven floors to where John is now. WOW what a view from up here. It takes about 1 min 10 seconds to go down and is much easier. hahahaha
When we arrived John was breathing 24 times a minute, shallow breaths. It is down some and he is breathing deeper. I don't go into the room much. I don'
I don't like hospital rooms much and especially since I cannot hear and someone will talk to me and they have to talk loud, and that is not good.
I am a very fortunate person, I have never spent a night in a hospital as a patient. I have spent many nights when I was not one though.
Only doctorial stuff I am familiar with is a vasectomy. That was sorta fun. Navy Doctors enjoy their jobs. I was operated on by a doctor in the same room where another doctor was performing the same procedure on another sailor. Tables beside each other they were racing. And announcing "I have mine on once cylinder now, getting ready to shut his production system down." Next statememnt that came out, "Okay Sailor, Fun Time. Be careful and don't ruin my work. I don't want you back in here with your ______ the size of a grapefruit!"
"WHAT?", yeah navy Docs are a load of fun!!!
Anyway that is my only time in the hospital, I think. Oh yeah, stupidity helped me break a finger once pulling an anchor.
Thanks for coming this way. Still around Detroit, let's see what we can find.
