What average line count do you type per pay period. what is considered above average and how long

how long, on average, average a knee replacement would one be on Oxycontin?(sm)
My DH recently had knee replacement surgery a month and a half ago.  The doctor has been prescribing oxycontin 30 mg this entire time.  Husband has been trying to wean off of it and is down to 10 mg.  He asked the doctor if he could come off it completely and the doc said to "just keep taking it."  His next visit is in two months.  With all the discussion lately about pain medication addiction, is it normal to be on this medication for this long and for the doctor to say "just keep taking it?"  How long should one be on this med?
They just billed it yesterday, the day of my new statement, that's why I got an over-the-limit fee tacked on, too .  Thanks so much for your support.  It really helps to have kind, supportive people helping me.  Thank you!
That was me yesterday, except it took me
14 hours off and on to get 1,000 lines in.  TMI = too many interruptions  I can't wait for school to start again.  LOL
Actually, it was yesterday, but still
Had one yesterday
that kept saying "post stop" after every sentence.

The first time I thought she said postop, until she kept saying it and it dawned on me that she was saying "post stop" when she was finished with that sentence.
I saw that one yesterday...sm
person must be OM and not transcriptionist...what an easy mistake!! lol.
Bet you are from yesterday

The one from yesterday also mentioned the infection aspect so perhaps you are just using a different name.  If you call the board, you will never work again as you are breaching confidentality and referring a patient to PT is not life threatening.  It might get the patient out of the house and do a lot emotionally and psychologically.  The doctor at least has not given up on him and trying to give him the best life possible and if PT can keep those muscle moving and so on, go for it.   I think it is time for you to find another profession is this is bugging you.  As for your grandmother, the doctor was hoping it would motivate her and he was trying not to allow her to just sit there and let everything atrophy as it seems the family was happy doing.  


Had a guy yesterday who...
said, "Okay, I have to spell this one."  Don't remember the word at the moment, but it was  thhhiiiiiiiiisssssss llllllooooonnnnggggg.  When he was done, he laughed and said, "How did anyone come up with a name that long anyway?"
I had one yesterday (ESL)
Who kept saying over and over in the report "assenbanger". After I stopped laughing, I did some investigation and it turned out she was really saying "Eisenmenger" syndrome.

Lovely, huh? :-)
yesterday I had

a 30-minute report that only counted to 142 lines.  I was really miffed.  Dictate a sentence.  Pause for 15 seconds.  Go back and change the last sentence, just say blah blah blah.  Pause for 15 seconds.  Dictate another sentence, stumbling mid-sentence while trying to collect thoughts.  Pause for 15.  Decide you didn't like that sentence after all and ask me to change it.  Over and over and over.  An ESL to boot.   

I felt like I was trapped in some strange time warp in the twilight zone.  It really messed with my mind.   

I was just wondering yesterday
what happened to them.  Hadn't heard anything about it in a few weeks.  Seems like all they talk about is Aruba.  Wonder where the little boy is!!
My doctor did tell me that yesterday....sm

thanks for reconfirming, I wasn't sure if I believed it. He even told me not to let the girls wash their hair everyday, which I knew wasn't good for other reasons but they do anyway.

It's still one of those things that makes you want crawl in a hole and hide. I hope the looks blow over soon.

Yesterday and all the other old stuff.
Not to worry.  No depression here.  I just think it's a beautiful song.
My 40th b-day was yesterday and .....
I have no wrinkles, no stretch marks, no gray in my hair and no extra weight. My chest is still where it was when I was 21 in spite of having three children. I wear a bikini at the beach (with a belly ring) and feel comfortable and confident doing it.

I have an agreement with my husband (who has superb taste in clothing and style)--if I ever dress in something that makes me look like I'm trying too hard, or in something that is unflattering or inapproriate for my age, he will tell me the truth. And he has been true to his word.

The true test for me on whether I can carry it off sucessfully is seeing 25-year-old men (and younger) take a second and third look with genuine appreciation and admiration. I hope that doesn't sound like a sexist remark as it is not intended to be; I simply think that women tend to judge other women's appearances based upon their own insecurities and maybe a bit of envy.

I feel, act and look younger at 40 than I did at 30. In my opinion, it all has to do with how you feel about yourself and how comfortable you are in your own skin.

I applaude women who take care of themselves and can wear younger, sexier styles with confidence.
Ours jumped yesterday
from $2.49 to $2.72. Don't know what it jumped to today. I saw that $2.99 on the news in Cedar Rapids-guess it isn't so bad yet in my small town.
well, they called me yesterday, but (sm)
I wasn't here.  So, she left a message, stating that if I had any questions regarding the new plan, I could call them back.  I aint even gonna bother...just see what happens when it happens.  But, if anyone else does talk with them, I'd love to know what they have to say! Good day all!


I had the Administrator look at it yesterday. (SM)
Yes, it appears someone is posting boatloads of recipes.

The ForumMatrix is open to anyone.

Did not yesterday, but did today.

Could not access because the usual icon was not on my bar, and when I clicked on "My Yahoo", "mail" was not there.  I had to go the long way around. 

Thanks. Saw it yesterday and sent my resume.
I watched CNN yesterday almost all day, just

willing those miners to walk out, but knowing that wasn't likely to happen based on the fact that there was no apparent debris that could be blocking them in.  I celebrated with the families when word was circulated that 12 were alive.  I called my DH at work and cried like a baby.    I was numb after the news came that only 1 survived.   I kept hearing stories about how the miners were coming to meet their families at the church, a Red Cross person said the miners were fighting about going to the hospital, that they wanted to see their families, and after the ambulance went out I waited and waited wanting desperately to see those men walk out.  


Were you born yesterday?
Please state what you KNOW and back it up by naming the facility.
just yesterday inquired
and i didn't get asked any of those questions. But we've a real small town bank too -- maybe that makes a difference.
Me too! A new line came out yesterday!
I went on just yesterday and omigosh...

first I looked through the teens, then I did a search for men 35-45 - what a revelation. A bunch of self-centered, self absorbed, superficial, sad, sad people. Anything from a sicko who called himself wetpantywipe and who was looking for other men with bare bottoms to rub up against, to self-inflated egotists. Of course, every guy made $150-000-$200,000. One guy, in the section for My Places, actually posted his resume. He had worked 18 places in the last 9 years. No duh - kind of a red flag there, buddy!  And then the "mail" these guys would get from their women "friends." All kinds of suggestive nearly nude pseudopaintings, the kind of things you see in the Harley shop, where they have a Barbie figure and a model's face and a horse's mane. Wearing a pearl necklace. That's all. With suggestive sayings about cherries, etc.  From a bunch of old skanks who never looked like that even when they were 18. And you can also send a little video, so they send videos with (actual) nude women's breasts bouncing around. One skanky sweetheart trying to get a guy's attention sent a little video of a white woman at the edge of pool naked with a black man's face in her you-know-what and his free hand rubbing her breast - full frontal nudity and all. "I thought THIS would get your attention! LOL" she writes. At 4:30, 'bout every profile lit up with "on line now!" "on line now!"  What a waste of electricity. One peek was more than enough for me.

I saw his wife yesterday. Don't know where
you get the overweight.  Sure she isn't rail thin, but hardly fat.   Chris is a local guy.  There has been talks for weeks that he didn't really want to win because he would be tied to contracts for a year.  He has a family and doesn't want to travel.  Look at the year Ruben won.  Clay was second and he has been more successful than Ruben, so I don't see not winning is going to hurt Chris.  Personally I don't think he can sing, he can scream, but he sounds like a moose in heat to me and I think he'll soon fade into the spotlight.  I have better things to do with my time than watching AI so I don't now about the others, though I did see a clip of Taylor on our local Fox news and I thought he could sing and he had a wonderful personality and is very comfortable in the spotlight, something Chris doesn't seem comfortable with. 
Yesterday, I did 45 minutes in
an hour (that was my average through the day).
I just got through telling someone yesterday
what I do and they said what I have heard umpteem times before: "Hey, I can do that, too." ARGH!
Yesterday morning I could not get in but its been
Yesterday, I Cried.
Yesterday, I Cried

By Iyanla Vanzant

Yesterday, I cried.
I came home, went straight to my room, sat on the edge of my bed,
kicked off my shoes, unhooked my bra,
and I had myself a good cry.
I'm telling you,
I cried until my nose was running all over the silk blouse I
got on sale.
I cried until my ears were hot.
I cried until my head was hurting so bad
that I could hardly see the pile of soiled tissues lying on
the floor at my feet.
I want you to understand,
I had myself a really good cry yesterday.
Yesterday, I cried,
for all the days that I was too busy, or too tired, or too mad
to cry.
I cried for all the days, and all the ways,
and all the times I had dishonored, disrespected, and disconnected
my Self from myself,
only to have it reflected back to me in the ways others
did to me
the same things I had already done to myself.
I cried for all the things I had given, only to have them stolen;
for all the things I had asked for that had yet to show up;
for all the things I had accomplished, only to give them
away, to people in circumstances,
which left me feeling empty, and battered and plain
old used.
I cried because there really does come a time when the only thing left
for you to do is cry.
Yesterday, I cried.
I cried because little boys get left by their daddies;
and little girls get forgotten by their mommies;
and daddies don't know what to do, so they leave;
and mommies get left, so they get mad.
I cried because I had a little boy, and because I was a little girl, and
because I was a mommy who didn't know what to do, and
Because I wanted my daddy to be there for me so badly until
I ached.
Yesterday, I cried.
I cried because I hurt. I cried because I was hurt.
I cried because hurt has no place to go
except deeper into the pain that caused it in the first place,
and when it gets there, the hurt wakes you up.
I cried because it was too late. I cried because it was time.
I cried because my soul knew everything I needed to know.
I cried a soulful cry yesterday, and it felt so good.
It felt so very, very bad.
In the midst of my crying, I felt my freedom coming,
Yesterday, I cried
with an agenda.

Yesterday, I cried
So, like what is this a poem or something?????
I paid $1.95 for gas yesterday. What about you?
Glad it's coming down!!!
1.88 yesterday in Va Beach, Va.
yesterday I had an 800 second report....sm

The dictator kept apologizing but continually had me go back to the HPI and take away stuff, add stuff and it was back and forth the entire report with him continually apologizing for *driving the male or female MT crazy* and he said that exactly.  You're so right, I wouldn't want this dictator being my doctor AT ALL EVER.

Now we can both EXHALE *LOL* 

my son does this too and he told me yesterday--sm
that there is already a service pak I to this program and it has not even been released to the public yet, so that is how many bugs are involved with it. just a heads up to all who are considering getting it.
First time yesterday
It was amazing! I have a lovely covered patio next to a pond. The biggest bother was the flying bugs. And the bull frogs were loud when they got to singing! I'll be heading out again in awhile. I can't work with a computer in my lap. I put it on a table, and attach a separate keyboard. The laptop screen keeps the glare down enough. I'm wondering if it'll ever get too hot to be out there... such a problem! :)
I was just saying that same thing yesterday!
So, I am not the only one who has noticed the recent drop in line rate. These newer transcriptionists with their "better than nothing" attitude don't get it. We are not complaining about our wages so much as the fact that these wages have GONE DOWN in the last 10 years or so. When I worked at home in the 1980s I made 10 cents a line. After working in-office for many years and within the last year going back home to work because I moved to another state and there were no in-office jobs, I was absolutely horrified to be offered 8 cents a line from the first national I applied for (Medquist).

Again, the rates are taking a nosedive down!!

sorry i got really busy yesterday. sm
yes, please do send me the file you have from express scribe. i have 4.05 version now if it is different from that. this version plays dss files, but the sound quality is horrible when i speed the docs up and i can't type at 100% as i have done them for years. please email me the zip file you have. thanks!
it was working yesterday.
must be in the shop for repairs.
I saw somewhere on the internet yesterday
that Dell and several other companies were starting a new line with XP in a deal worked out with Microsoft because of all the problems with Vista. I want to say it was Santa Rose. Also, if you Google "laptops with XP" you get several sites to check out.
I used my BOS - yesterday --- sort of... (sm)
I had visitors for lunch in my yard, and the table that the food was set out on was on uneven ground. So, I got out my BOS, put it under the too-short table leg, and voila! A steady table. And of course, of all the books I own, it's the one I care the LEAST about, so it didn't matter if it got a little muddy.
I emailed you yesterday. nm
i rec'd letter yesterday, and am an employee, not IC
the letter addressed the benefit changes, planned announcement for new pay plan and update on lawsuits and investigations.
It went up to $2.29 yesterday, was $2.16 earlier this week...
I'm glad I work at home!
I signed yesterday! :) They say Jen cheated! LOL NMd
I received the same information yesterday.
I had a similar discussion yesterday.

"Oh, you should get a job at the school district.  They need cafeteria workers and it would work great with your kids' schedules."

I don't think so!  They pay $7 an hour to feed and clean up after other peoples' munchkins!  If I *ever* decided to work outside the home again, it'd be something that uses my education and pays way more.  Hubby butted in and said that I make at least three times what they do in a year by working at home.  That started the, "Oh, really?  I've always thought about doing that.  Where do you work?"

Think I saw a blip about Red Tide in N.O. yesterday
Movin' it up here...TO CONCERNED from yesterday (sm)

Thinking about you & hoping you are safe & feeling a little less sore.  Please e-mail me if you can or call (if you get voicemail, I will call you back if it is safe). 

Remember what I said yesterday...YOU ARE NOT ALONE


Tried to post 3 times yesterday and kept getting

an error.

I was going to suggest knitting/crochet.  It is all the rage these days and they have lots of groups that get together in various locations to knit and chat, sip coffee, etc.

I have a book called Teach Yourself Visually Knitting & Crocheting - I got it at B&N for about $25.00.  Wonderful book.  I have been knitting for a year but whenever I need help on a new technique or can't remember something I pull it out.  It has actual photos of how to do the stitches instead of a B&W drawing, that a lot of books have.  I'm sure you could find the book cheaper on-line.  If she would like to take lessons it seems everyone is offering them these days and in the groups there is always someone willing to help out when needed. 

You can get a skein of yarn and some needles for about $10.00 or less.  Hobby Lobby has sales all the time. 

Knitting can evolve into spinning and dyeing too.   I haven't done either yet, but hope to learn both. 

There are thousands of patterns you can get on-line for free, though if she develops a yarn fetish it can get quite expensive.
