Yes, I am referring to the reed instrument. My clarinet is a Buffet Festival Greenline. The clarinet forum members were interested in weight as one of the variables in clarinet acoustics. The goal is to achieve the ultimate in clarinet sound, that of Mr. Acker Bilk (just kidding!).
As far as to why I am here in this nurses' forum: it is much more interesting than the plumbing, drains, and sewers forum. Seriously, though, this is a great source of information, providing much information not available in textbooks.
I had become hooked on aspirin to control tension headaches, and had been using 5-6 a day when a duodenal ulcer hemorrhage resulted in the loss of about 4 units of blood. I ended up in the Emergency Department, followed by the Critical Care Unit, in May 2003. They treated me very well, and I am grateful for the care that I received. This forum helps me to understand my course of treatment, gives me a chance to talk about what I experienced from the viewpoint of a patient, and lets me show my appreciation (so many posts seem to be critical of the nursing care received by the patient). Also, my reactions can be different, so someone has to explain to me not only how a normal patient reacts, but why they react that way.
