Piper is not feeling well.

In fact, it's far more challenging than that...best to do as she would do, and make small, gentle humorous observations. Just be upbeat.

Among the founders of tamahay , girls' summer camp, and also Hub's sister; a lady of
intelligence, fortitude and determination: she answers the nurse's question about the level of post-surgical pain--a quietly whispered 4 (on the 1 to 10 scale). We gasp; that's about 13 for the
rest of us!

We visited for two days: long enough for several wonderful visits and long enough to be thoroughly impressed by the sheer, sublime excellence of the Mayo Clinic system, St. Mary's

Hospital in particular.


With this healthcare debate raging in the political arena, it seems timely to comment: no way could the Federal Government match up with this venue. And yes, I know the military hospitals are excellent, but not available to the general population.
