We spent 5 hours at the first ER only to be sent away to Riley Hospital becase the Oral Surg. Would not answer his phone. He was not on call persay bur he is the only one for the whole hospital. They exspected him to show up. So they sent us away when he didnt. Yes we have a lot we would like rlto talk with the directors about there. H
Thing were beyter at riley but not much faster. We put in 6:30 HOURS there. My sons teeth were bad. He broke his left front too in half. His right front tooth twisted around so that the back is the front and it was shoved so far up in his hed you could only see it with an xray. Anywho, long story short. They got him put backtovether as good as they could.he has stitches on the to and bottom. They are even using bracess to try to save his front 4 teeth. He need prayer

Amp, you know my religious leanings, but I'll say, if ever there was a person that I was hoping God was watching over, you would definitely be on that list. You've been through so much, mine and my family's thoughts go out to you. I sincerely hope that everything works out ok for you my friend.

Bunk beds...I had them as a kid...my brother slept on top.
One night he was really tossing and turning( I argued that I was concerned with his weight, but it was an argument I lost with my parents.) Anyways he wiggled so much that he snapped the support board and him and the bed came crashing down on me. I woke up a few hours later on the couch with a killer headache and a chipped front tooth.
My mom was working, and my dad was drunk so no one thought it was a good idea to take me to the hospital (Mom was working the graveyard shift and she was made when she came home).
A few weeks later I kicked my brother down the stairs (We weren't too friendly with each other as kids...)
I hope your son gets to keep his teeth and gets well soon.

Wow man! You and your brother were your own at home bullies!
Well, he says he is feeling okay today. It looks really bad though. Both front teeth are not in right. They both lean to the opposite sides. So, it makes a V with his front teeth. They said that he will probably have to have more braces to fix that later that is IF he can even keep the teeth. So we will just have to wait and see. He is going to go to school tomorrow. We are going to go in with him though and talk to them about his needs and restrictions. Thanks everyone for the prayers and kind words!
I decided never to join the military because of political reasons. If my country ever needs to be defended from invasion I'm there, but too often we go meddling in countries that no one wants us to meddle in. Often times it seems that the reasons are not moral correct, and stem from greedy individuals bargaining with politicians for monetary gain at the cost of our men and women.
I hope your situation gets better link, If you don't like the duty you have been detailed with I would advise requesting a transfer. It might be ignored, but it might help you get out of the situation you are in.
I’ve had an “experience” with our customs office here for past couple of weeks... I ordered some stuff from TCSS (which I rarely do due to their high shipping costs), the package arrived in timely order and went through our customs after I had sent them the copy of store invoice. However, I had ordered 7/8” TransWhite blade stock, but got 3/4” instead. Tim was really generous and sent me right ones for free, but this package apparently caused massive stir in the customs office.
The idiots there didn’t understand it was a free compensation, in fact according to them it’s not even possible to have a free compensation and you still need to pay tax for it. I’ve tried to explain the situation for them several times, sending documents and underlining the items this package includes, without success.
But what makes my blood really really really boil, is the fact that this package was not supposed to be their concern in the first place! We can import stuff outside European Union tax free if the value is under $56 (at today’s exchange rate). This package would fill that requirement but for some reason the customs office still don’t get it... And they would have noticed this, had they just read the customs declaration, included in the address card.
I sent one final email to them today, if that doesn’t work I’m going to tell them to destroy the package and leave me alone. Couple of tubes aren’t simply worth this kind of Soviet Russia bureaucracy. Geez.
***Please note, this rant is targeted towards our customs office, not TCSS.***

Gotta rant about some health issues... nothing compared to some people on this board...
I have PVCD, GERD, Caffeine-Induced RLS, possible EI Compartment Syndrome, Colorblindness, Shoulder Impingement, chronic pinched nerves, chronic muscle tension, healing problems, scarring problems (I scar super easily - dermatologist thinks I have a broken collagen gene somewhere), fighting allopecia, crappy metabolism and astigmatism.
Most of this is not treatable. The few that is (muscle tension, shoulder impingement, astigmatism and EI compartment syndrome) I either can't afford the treatment (shoulder impingement requires physical therapy, my insurance doesn't cover PT, muscle tension is a similar plight, either deep-tissue massage therapy sessions (no insurance coverage) or PT, EI Compartment Syndrome is PT) or the treatment really doesn't help (I have glasses for astigmatism but I still can barely see lines!). The management medication I'm on for my GERD isn't helping, and I can't see a specialist for awhile.
I've even had a physician tell me I had the body of a 50 year old, I have more medical problems than any of my friends and I can't even do anything about most of them.
I've been mostly offline for past month, it was my summer vacation and I usually have little time for my own hobbies during that period... Now I'm back at work again and normal daily routines feel alright, but my brains are still on vacation and not quite tuned back to saber hobby yet... ;D
But, that's not my problem this time! Yesterday I experienced my second flat tire since getting my driver's license (and I do drive about 20.000 miles per year as an average), last one was 15 years ago. Modern Eurocars have these quick patch kits instead of spare tyres, so it was also the first time I tested that in action. Worked pretty well, but the leak was rather small too. Took the car to tyre shop today, they fixed it for about $60 and now it's good to go again.
So, really a small problem, but interesting event anyway. So I decided to waste some forum space and type in few lines about it.
