    Songs about Old Folks

    But now old friends are acting strange They shake their heads, they say I've changed Well somethings lost, but somethings gained In living every day http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVoCpWaC500&feature=related

    Does your family ask your advice and then take it

    I can relate Jackie. I have elderly parents who ask for my advice and get the opinion of their PCP, which is all fine and good as long as our advice/opinions are in line with what they want to hear. However, if the advice isn't to their liking -- recently it was the need to get an MRI and see a specialist in town --- they suddenly know better, and say "I don't think I need that". While I do believe they have to right to guide their own treatment, it's hard when the rationale for not getting the MRI is "that machine is too loud. I just don't like it", and the rationale for not seeing the specialist is "I don't want to have to go into the big city" -- which by the way, is only 6 miles from my home and I've told them I would do all the driving. When my patients refuse tx despite my attempts at educating them, I simply document what I've taught, their response, and then I move on. When it's my parents, it's a lot harder, since I will be their care-giver no matter the outcome. That's the hard part. I have no words of the wise, because it sounds like we are in the same boat. I just wanted to say I understand where you are coming from. ~Minnie

    What's one of your deepest fears?

    1. Something really bad happens to one my kids 2. Something really bad happens to one of my patients because I missed the warning signs And of course there's that old fear -- I dream I'm back in school, and find that I'm about to walk into a class to take a final when I never attended the class all semester! :eek: Been having that fear for years...

    Pats, Giants or neither?

    It's the day that the equipment truck gets loaded up and leaves Fenway for Spring training in Florida. Then pitchers and catchers report -- the next milestone.

    Pats, Giants or neither?

    I'll root for the Pats, since I'm a local girl. But football doesn't matter much to me. It's all about the Sox. "Truck Day" is February 11th...

    My plan was to have a hot and torrid affair with Pablo my pool-boy. However, since I'm 45 and half-way to 90, have no pool-boy or pool, things aren't quite working out for me.... :smokin:
