    OT: school

    Sorry I have NOT been on here in a LONG time but I have been busy. I have flown back to the mainland for an emergency with my neuro, and I am now going back to college at UH (Univeristy of Hawi'i--West Honolulu) where we live. I have made it past the first semester with 2 classes a B and an A. The A did NOT surprise me as I had to re-take medical terms over again as it has been about 20 years since I last had it, but I have the update 21st edition medical dictionary and several other items to study from. The B was in an RN class already called the Basics of Nursing. I thought for sure I was going to fail that.

    I had my doc give me an extra 2 boxes of magnets so each teacher would have a pager style of magnet that they could hold easier than the one around the wrist. they can put it on their belt or into thier pockets backwards liks pagers and grab them when they have to.

    I have only had 4 szs during school in a 5 week span and more outside of the clsse room, but I taught the teachers how to use them.

    Well I better get going for now I just wanted to let you know i am still here and breathing that I did not fall off the earth just got busy, and started school.
