My mother and I share one of those Aurora doctors. We received letters today informing us of the change in policy. They've been pushing patients toward the Kenosha Aurora facilities for some time now. What a shame it is that we have just one hospital in Racine. The only time that mom gets admitted to the hospital anymore is through the Emergency Room. I have some surgery coming up, and I was wondering if they would do it at Wheaton. Now I know.
When our doctor left All Saints years ago, he was part of small band of doctors who left because they were unhappy with All Saints. None of them could practice in Racine for a year. Mom and I followed our doctor to Aurora in Oak Creek, and that's how we became affiliated with Aurora. I remember our doctor shaking my hand the first time I saw him in Oak Creek. He thanked me for my loyalty. He was back in Racine after a year and we stayed with him. Fifteen years later and now this. I know that mom will never make it to Kenosha, but now I'm wondering if I should stick with my doctor or switch to a Wheaton one. Kenosha is not that far, but it's far enough.
They once wanted me to do a urine flow test in Kenosha. They want you to arrive with your bladder bursting, but don't pee until they tell you to. How was I supposed to drive to Kenosha like that? I knew then that something like this was up. I just saw my doctor last week for a regular check-up. Some tests are scheduled in three weeks. I may see him after that. I'll play it by ear for now.
Meanwhile, the wife was sitting in the bed saying to herself, "Now how do I tell my husband that I've got really bad breath? I've been very lucky to keep it from him while we were courting, but as soon as he's lived with me for a week, he's bound to find out. Now how do I tell him gently?"
The husband finally plucks up enough courage to tell his wife and so he walks into the bedroom. He walks over to the bed, climbs over to his wife, puts his arm around her neck, moves his face very close to hers and says, "Darling, I've a confession to make."
And she says, "So have I, love."
To which he replies, "Don't tell me, you've eaten my socks."
Hello, my bodacious bon-bons! How are you?
Our weather continues in warm and sunny mode. Too much of a good thing? Many lawns around town have turned yellow and
brown. Our grass usually doesn’t go
dormant until late July or August. As
I’ve said before, we’re about a month ahead of schedule. The ground is hard as a rock. A little rain would go a long way.
(Don’t forget, if you visit The Journal Times.com too much,
you’ll have to start paying them. Oh
“Summertime and the living is easy…” Or is it?
Road construction all over Racine
has made it anything but easy to get around.
I still do most of my traveling by automobile. (Astral projecting is not quite as accurate
as driving is, and a/p is an enormous drain on my psychic powers. I’d rather pay $4 a gallon for gas than try
to astral project around town.) There is
so much construction, and so many detours, that it has become trying just to go
from place to place. Where are the
flying cars that they promised us in the 1950’s? Personal helicopters would allow us to hop
from shop to shop. Why aren’t Racine
citizens given free Segways® and Hoverounds®? Why isn’t our Mr. Mayor Dickert
looking into these issues?
There is a stink afoot concerning a local police chief. Why do our area public officials get into so
much trouble? This is another black eye
for Racine, justified or not.
Lawsuit, charges against an alderman, another alderman making a ninny of
himself on TV, oh my, oh my.
Really? This is the best that we
can do? How utterly sad.
I will not end my blog on a negative note, my dears. You are my Positive Pollies; you are the ones
that lift my spirits when they flag.
Thank you for reading my blog today.
Thank you for every day.
"The New York Times also reported the sisters were 'reprimanded for
making public statements that "disagree with your challenge the
bishops."' For example, the Times reported, during the 2010 health care
overhaul, American bishops opposed the plan, but many on the Leadership
Conference supported it."
