SMILE! You’re on Candid Camera!

That’s what we can do now when we’re close to the window looking out on the lobby at work. We are getting more and more surveillance cameras in the hospital. Big Brother is watching us. They are supposed to be for our protection but, like one of the registrars pointed out, the patients’ privacy can also be compromised. That would be a HIPAA violation. For a day or two, the camera in the lobby was displaying an upside down image and had people walking on the ceiling. Good thing most women wear slacks!

I was in bed before 10 last night after soaking in a tub of not-warm-enough water. The tub had filled while I was doing other things and I’d failed to make sure of the temperature. I took another soak tonight but you can believe I had the water good ‘n warm.

TGIF Raw Food

29 ozzies grapefruit juice
30 ozzies banana/blueberry/spinach smoothie (it tasted a bit spicy—good!)
28 ozzies banana “mylk”
1 pickling cucumber
5 tangerines
1 head romaine (the heart) eaten leaf by leaf
1 better than usual mango
1 mug garlic lemonade
1/2 avocado

No salt today! I have two sisters who are trying to cut down on it, too. It’s tough the days I go without, like yesterday. It’s hard to break a habit of years. And it isn’t broken yet. Much harder to break than giving up cooked food.

The roadside market man was in town today so I took a few minutes to go see what he had. He had folded his tents and silently stolen away. Since I was already out and about, I decided I would go get some minutes for my phone. The young man at the counter was obviously new and the register didn’t print my receipt with the PIN. He had to call for help. The manager came, rebooted the register, and got it printed off. All the while, she was yelling recriminations at the offending machine. It took much longer than I’d planned. I didn’t think I was going to get back to the hospital before quitting time.

When it WAS time to quit, one of the people I’ve gotten hooked on OneSuite hailed me and said he needed his card refilled. Not today, said I. I’m leaving. It’s time he learned to do it himself, anyway. I won’t always be there to do it for him.

One of my close relatives is having another round with cancer. This time, it isn’t only the prostate involved, it’s the ribs and spine. I wish I had a magic wand…God can intervene and I’m praying He will.

Better get to bed soon. My stomach isn’t feeling good. I hope I don’t have to call for a fill-in tomorrow.

Good night and happy Sabbath!
