THanks for the well wishes, and more good information.

After my experiences in 2002, Doug and I promised each other that we would be present for the other at a hospital during a critical time...then, after being urged to “go home and let us take care of him”...”Home” being 900 miles away...I had to ask to speak with the hospital administrator to be allowed to stay with him in the ICU.

They relented, when they were convinced I would not, and I stayed.

I’m starting to feel a bit antsy, and sense a little road trip in my future once the double vision is completely resolved.

Something southerly, but not too much, as it is not heat that I seek...maybe a little rental time in the French Quarter, someplace that will allow Lily.

We’ll see.


I am making this Stormy Isle Wrap for a friend who is going on a trip with her husband...the project underway is what I am working on, out of the gorgeous Sweet Roll yarn I have only heretofore admired.

It comes in the most beautiful colors.

Shhhhh, it’s a surprise.

That is a beautiful wrap. Light but a touch of warmth.

Yes, I thought so, too, and such a simple pattern.

She likes pink, and this would be perfect over black or deep navy.

I think she will like it.

Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan creating a health care company

Is this good news? I don’t really know, but it will undoubtedly be more of what I have recently seen, heard and been discussed here.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...=.d674f2ee916c


Maybe the changes in the health care industry are just a natural and logical by-product of the expansion of population in this country....and the aging of we mass of baby-boomers, which may be threatening to overtake available resources.

Old-school, compassionate and holistic health care delivery may simply not be an option any longer.

In the 21st century, it seems to be a business, first and foremost...more detached/objective, less touchy-feely, and perhaps our mindset needs to be to seek care, and critique/evaluate services received as if we were hiring a lawn care service, roof or washing machine repair, etc.

Interesting...

I came across this website on the benefits of “earthing” the other day, and though it was worth sharing.

https://heartmdinstitute.com/alterna...-or-grounding/

This may explain the near-spiritual, head to toe experience derived from walking barefoot in the sand and surf at Edisto.

Maggie, your post of this morning re: changes in health care, etc, hit home with us. My DH and I have spoken numerous times in the last year about this very thing.

Until 2000, our family doctor (GP) would do x-rays, give allergy injections, B-12 shots, etc —all in his office. He gave up his practice in 2000 and the new GP did not do in-office x-rays, allergy injections, nor B-12 shots — however he still, at every visit, would do coordination/strength/reflex testing; he would look into our ears and eyes, and would check out minor cuts/bruises, etc. He moved back to PA in 2010, and our current GP acts as though she doesn’t want to touch anyone any more than to ocassionally looking into our ears, has never checked our reflexes or coordination, does not test urine samples in her office, of course no x-rays in the office — almost everything is referred to a specialist and/or the hospital.

I don’t know if this is the way of the future for all family doctors, but we don’t care for it.

Hmm, Deb.

I can’t remember the last time my ears or nose was looked at, reflexes checked, or any of those other things you mentioned...even when I was just in the hospital, what might have been considered a “physical”, back in the day.

My pcp does have a lab at their office, and did an ekg on me while I was there a few weeks ago.

I suspect the change is here to stay, tho. It’s not our parents medical care, nor if you are old enough, our own the first half of our lives.

Maggie

Thanks for sharing the link re: earthing, I found it very interesting and plan to try it. I doubt I purchase the sheets, etc, but I will try it for short periods of time while outside at home by going barefoot.

Personally I do not believe in the supposed medical benefits of earthing or any other form of biofield therapy. The human body's ability to conduct electricity (badly; high resistance when a human body is in the circuit) is well-documented through electrocutions ranging from lightning strikes to state-ordered executions.

But the circuits within a human body's nervous system are electrochemical, not electrical, and complete the circuit internally without needing to be grounded to earth. We do not constantly create St. Elmo's fire around us just by walking around without skin-to-ground contact.

I put biofield therapies such as earthing in the same category as homeopathy and naturopathy— namely fringe pseudo-medical practices whose supposed benefits are strictly subjective and cannot be objectively proven by independent peer review. Science works all the time whether you believe in it or not. Pseudo-science only works for those who believe in it.

I do believe that most people feel less tired when they don't wear shoes. Shoes are heavy compared to bare feet, and of course if you have to move more weight when you move, it will make you more tired. But that's true even if you go barefoot on a non-conductive rubber or plastic mat that would prevent you from grounding yourself. Has nothing to do with grounding yourself, and everything to do with casting off extra weight that you have to lift with every step you take.

So if you believe in earthing, power to you, and enjoy the benefits. But I don't believe in it, and would never see a benefit from trying it, or a detriment from not trying it.

Sorry, Maggie. I hate to contradict you, but I felt that I had to offer an opposing viewpoint.

Feel free to contradict, Protag...no problem with that from me.

I’m not toting earthing’s benefits, nor as the solution to many things, but it’s an interesting concept...if planting one’s bare feet on the earth’s surface is effective because one believes it can and will be, then that’s not a bad thing.

I won’t be purchasing special sheets and things, either, but the ground to walk on whilst barefoot is a free activity.

I believe in homeopathy because it has worked for me.

My beloved for many years chiropractor/homeopath has resolved issues my medical doctors couldn’t, that is a fact, and I trust him completely.


On another note, I’ve been having moments over the past few days when my left eye has properly aligned itself in socket and the double vision has disappeared, so I am very close to full resolution...not yet 5 weeks out.

Yippee!

Maggie
