Pretty wild, I have not had really anything happen since my mom died 09/26/04 except how Jen became

Posted By: Laura E. on 2005-07-20
In Reply to: Ok, I give up. My dad passed away - Just me

diagnosed with her Wilms tumor.  The day prior to it she'd had her normal checkup and the doctor totally missed the tumor (hard to since it was huge, 15 x 11 x 5 cm...was not protruding though unless she was flat on her back and naked and then only a tiny bit), but felt if you palpated the abdomen. (Dr. cut my daughter's ear while trying to clean wax but failed to mention it to her what he was trying to do, messed up the rest of the exam since she was crying and freaked out from it)  The very next day after her check up though, she fell off the kiddie see-saw (18" fall).....my husband likes to think my mom pushed her off, which subsquently caused a blood vessel on the tumor to burst, which made her pee blood, which got me to get her to the doctor's, who proto found her tumor.  Had she not been diagnosed then, in the next week or so the tumor would have probably burst or spread or somehow not have been encapsulated anymore and things would have been a lot worse. So my mom helped her get treatment a lot earlier than she otherwise would have probably.  I thinks it's nice to think about it this way.

ER died when Mark Green died. The 'new'
the same oomph as the originals.  Not as exciting as it used to be.  I had watched since the very first episode and loved every episode until then.  Now it's BORING!
wild life
Lets just leave the wild life alone, ya know?  *Man* has screwed enough up on this beautiful earth..Leave the wild life alone.
This is a wild guess
Do you think he means the children's cartoon character "Pokemon"? Maybe the patient thinks they're real, or maybe it's how he describes his family.
Wild stab
Assuming this is another MD who is reading a radiology report, I would expect he would say something along the lines of:

"Reviewing the CT scan, the current report demonstrates no free air or fluid, but the comment is really unchanged from previous CT scan."

That is just one possibility. Maybe if you are able to listen again, something will jump out at you.
remember when they used to have a wild card?
If you could bring somebody back with a wild card, who would it be?  I'd bring back Chris. 
I second that, Wild Blue works well (sm)
for me. Tried Hughes a few years back and it was awful but maybe they are improved now. Have had Wildblue for 2 years and it works pretty good.
Possibly Wild Blue?....sm
I don't live in Oregon, but am in rural western Washington. I know a few MTs who use Wild Blue and are happy with it, so that would be my only suggestion.

I did want to say that I have been using satellite for about three years now (a small local company), have been on no less than 4 different MT platforms, and never had any problems. Yes, satellite can be susceptible to extreme weather...but if you're in a rural area you're about as likely to have your power go out anyway in extreme weather!
Best of luck.
Wild guess, but might get you closer

1.  of any murmurs.

2.  funduscopic exam

3.  Eyegrounds??

I think I'm pretty bright and pretty good, too, but
I am not a CMT. I am a medical transcriptionist who enjoys her job very much (most days). I have chosen not to pursue certification simply because I cannot afford to do so. I believe the certification is a nice thing to have, but I don't believe it is necessary for employment or for excellence in my job. If you can afford it, go for it. If you can't, don't feel too bad. You can still take pride in and do a very good job without it.
Wild Blue satellite internet

Anybody currently using Wild Blue satellite internet?  Any responses good or bad would be greatly appreciated.

Well, that's all folks. All gifts have been given. It's been a wild ride
Here is a great site and you can wild search
too if you can understand a portion of the name.


I also use WIld Blue and have no problems. Both my jobs are FTP, though.
My computer has gremlins! My mouse has gone wild. sm
Last night when I put my mouse over the "Start" button to shut down, it suddenly went crazy.  It began moving all over the desktop, things started popping up, it was like a wild animal!  I thought it was just a dirty mouse and cleaned it.  When I booted up this morning, the same thing happened.  Then it settled down, and it's working fine.  Now I'm not sure if it's the mouse or the computer.  I'm the same person who had the "wavy" screen yesterday.  Has anyone ever had this happen?  I'm getting paranoid, thinking maybe I have picked up some strange bug on the net.  Any advice appreciated.  Thanks so much for all the help.
not sure about you, but we have several wild animal care and education centers...
The best way to start is to volunteer.

We have like Messinger Woods and Hawk Creek around here, like animal sanctuaries, where they have owls, eagles, deer, all sort of animals they need to take care of. You can always visit one and ask questions. I would love that, too, only I can not get my boyfriend interested. I would love to even volunteer.

Sounds funny, but what about a zoo...same thing, you can volunteer at first, see if you like it, and I believe those positions offer decent pay...?
Only during the summer. Wild colored toe socks in winter.
Isn't that wild?!! At least a few people will be needed as MTs/editors in the years to come. nm
Yes, call your local vet, any vet, and ask for the wild rabbit rescuer in your area.
There is always someone nearly everywhere. If you can't find one, please write me and I'll search for someone for you if you're short on time.  They are so worth saving.  Mom might still be around. Let's hope so! 
Dilemma! Tomorrow is picture day and my 5 yo just went wild w/a jug of blue food coloring --


both hands and the entire lower half of his face are now bright, royal blue.. Will this wash off by morning???

I would let DD go with Habitat for Humanity or a church mission, but not that wild party stuff.
Saute the innards with other veggies, wild rice, sun dried toms. then
Wild guess-borrow a wireless?? Go to an open wirless and work from the car if you have to?
Where there's a will there's a way - keep asking and keep talking, someone will help you. Ask the company you work for to help you out here, perhaps they have a plan for you if they value your association.
Ours is in the regular food store with the brown, wild, and short grain rices, etc. nm
I'd ask the local authorities to tell the MTSO to stop sending THEM on a wild goose chase! NM
Who died?
and left you boss? 
I used to have one of those (died on me too).

If you really like the mechanical keyswitch feel (which I sure do) and don't need a split/ergo keyboard, then you might want to think about trying one of the old Model M IBM keyboards ... very similar in feel (actually, better, IMO) to the NMB.  I, unfortunately, have to use a totally split keyboard now, otherwise I'd be using a Model M myself.

You can sometimes find vintage ones cheap in local little computer stores too (I got one for $5 once that way).




He died because of his fame. Not enough for you? SM
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. They do different things that make them heroes to different people. What you really meant to say was that John Lennon was not a hero to you, right?
died today at age 83...........nm
he died almost a year ago (sm)
He had hypertension, diabetes, and had had a stroke in 2003. He was only 54.
No, it's not bad. I cried more when my cat died than when
I'm a wimp. I got another dog, just like the one that died, 2 weeks later.
I missed her so much that after we came back from vacation, I got another just like her. Same coloring, same breed. Only this time I got a male instead of a female and he has green eyes, not black. I can't believe how much alike they are.
I had similar experiences after my mom died (sm)
On my mother's birthday, after she died, the smoke alarms went off in my house. They were not in need of new batteries, nor was there even a hint of smoke in the house.

They continued to go off at different occasions, each of which was a "special day," either a birthday or a holiday that she enjoyed.

My mom was in marching band when she was in HS and pretty much made me follow in her footsteps. It was okay, but not a decision I would have chosen. My daughter inadvertantly, through a scheduling glitch ended up in marching band her first year of high school. She ended up loving it. At sleep-away band camp the following year, in the chaparone's quarters (where I was sleeping), the smoke alarm went off during the night. It was kind of funny though, because it went off in another chaparone's room and I didn't even hear it. The other chaparone told me about it the next day and what she went through to get it to stop (basically had to beat if off the wall). When she told me, I just smiled and said, "Oh, that was my mom, she just got the wrong room."

I always thought how proud mom would have been that my daughter ended up in band and even ended up being the drum major her senior year and what a difference it made in her life.

That was the last I've heard of mom.

I'm a strong believer in God, but somehow I think it's possible that those close to us have "ways" of letting us know they're still loving us, even though they have a strange way of showing it! Kind of like when they were alive LOL! ;-)

let's see... christopher died at 52, keanu is almost 41
My pet turkey, Bubba, died of
natural causes two weeks ago.  He was about 50 pounds.  His wife, though, Bubette, is still healthy and well.  I guess she is a turkey widow now. 
Who died? And didn't get punished?
Lou Rawls died 2day...
I thot he had an awesome voice. Great talent!
It was a very sad day when she died. It makes no sense at all.
mine finally died

it took about a week.

It was in the same room that I sleep in. I discovered if I left the light on it stayed quiet most of the time through the night.  I sure could not find it, and I don't think mine escaped.  :(    cc

ER died with Mark Green - Not the

him, Carol and Doug.  One thing that got to me though, why didn't Carol and Doug show up for his funeral????  The newer episodes just don't have the same uumph - I stick to the reruns on TNT. 

ditto......and clarabelle just died!!...nm

robert kardashian died ? When?

No, she only eats chicken... that died from old age... LOL


I remarried after the other husband died
and I have moved to another town about 30 miles away and I do not use the same hospital anymore. In fact, lucky me, I have a medical center right behind me here, all my physicians here in this community, it is so less a stress and strain on me. I am loving it. That hospital P. in Atlanta is a thing of the past.
Mine did this, motherboard died
I had a few do this, and the motherboard had died. I had just purchased them.
We had a weird happening after my father died...
He died in August and when we went to visit his grave just before Christmas, the grass was still growing back over the plot.  The grass had grown in the shape of a Christmas tree inside the rectangular plot of dirt over the grave.  We got some bulbs and decorations and laid them in the grass and took pictures.  Guess what, the pictures didn't turn out.  "dodo do do" (twilight zone tune)
My favorite teacher died yesterday...
He was my choir director in high school - such a lovely, special and talented man. He really made a difference in my life 30 years ago. Sad day 4 me.
I agree..my mother was a teacher and when she died..sm
So many people told me what an impact she had on their lives. It was nice to hear it.
Had to QA a report on a baby today, died after a
horrible birth and hospital stay for months. One drug was missing and I just could NOT find it. I am good at that, and felt so bad that this little girl had a big blank in the middle of her report. It was such a long horrible story, including all the agonizing decisions the parents had to make. I just did NOT want a blank in there. So weird, but I went to double check another drug that started with a totally different letter, and when I clicked on that letter, another letter popped up with the exact drug I had been looking for prior. Long story, but too weird, and I knew someone else was helping me out with that blank. I felt so at peace that the little kid had a complete death summary. The patients deserve nothing less, right?
the thread had died. you're the one keeping it going.
ever look at the dates on these things? let it go. sheesh.
Her mother died??? I don't remember hearing about this.
A 20 y/o who suddenly just died of a heart attack? Seems odd.
