    Thanks inmom! I love his curiosity too (most times). He LOVES the new car (he got to pick out the color), so we spelled out the new name of the car, worked on letters and sounds and how to put them together, and then on the way home we did some math with the miles, the percentage of battery left, how many miles the battery said we had when we started minus how many miles it said we had left. Plus, since it's an all new area to us, we GPS everything and he holds my phone and tells us the GPS directions, learning his left, right, straight. He's even learning how to read a map! I just don't get how ppl say kids don't learn outside of school!

    Gotcha on VA. If we lived back home, same thing. 75 miles one way to small one or 4+ hrs to main hospital.
    Luckily, we have both here in Portland. Which is good since DH is there all the time. *sigh.

    If we ever moved to a new place, where the closest VA would definitely be a huge consideration.

    NICE on the museum! How cool of a find is that!!!

    Actually there is a VA clinic in town, but it is staffed so poorly, that we have had to start going to the next closest one. We had to petition the hospital to actually switch because there are serious health issues that were not being addressed properly. We have moved a few times, so the VA situation is always a crapshoot. We have had great ones, mediocre ones, to ones that will probably hurt people based on the lack of quality care.

    Fortunately with the new dr., he works with us so we don't have to go in all the time. We can still do lab work locally and his office is efficient with answering emails and phone calls.

    CRIPES.
    My brother just called me. He never calls me when things like this are going on. We chat on FB.
    He is going in for surgery any time now. His whole spine is covered in MRSA.
    He has a 50/50 shot of making it.
    He doesn't do surgery, MRSA kills him.
    *sigh
    He freaked me out by calling me.
    He is scared.
    I get it.
    My niece is being a royal B. She was already being a turd. She refused to come to hospital tonight to see her Dad, just in case. It broke his heart.
    IF he makes it, we will go over on Sat.
    I am not good at this emotional stuff. DH thinks we should have gone NOW.
    I am not one for sitting there and waiting. Will be a long surgery, etc. We talked on phone and we will go on Sat.
    It is times like these that I am weird or feel like I am weird because I am not freaking out. But then my Mom who IS emotional, is waiting to see too.

    And ya, my niece needs an ass whooping.
    She is 13. Stealing, drugs, smoking in the past week.
    My brother has spoiled her since he got custody. And it is now biting him in the butt.
    I will keep you guys posted, hopefully I have something to report in the Roll Call for Friday.

    Can you go now? It might not be til morning or wee hours that he goes into surgery. He will get comfort from you being there, Id imagine.
