another injection today RSDS , update  

The image “http://media.hamptonroads.com/media/content/pilotonline/2007/06/0621chamber500x325.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.I got an LSB this morning. They did two again like last time to cover both my right foot and knee. We talked a bit about the hyperbaric oxygen therapy that might help me and I found out from the doctor they have the facilities, but they don't have the the plumbing done. Like some horrible joke. I gather from what he said, it's been like that for a significant amount of time. The doctors petitioned for the higher ups to finish the work, but the PTBs said it was too much money.
The article explains it better than I understood at the time, and I see that there really is quite a bit involved. But...the usefulness of the treatment to our troops and even civilians in the area seems to be a good reason to get funding for it. Why outsource when you are half way to the goal of inhouse?

Beautiful Poem from Jeff poetry  

Please read this when you get the chance, it is so beautiful and touching.


I love this line that reminds me (maybe intentionally) of LOTR.

O death, close my eyes
So I may see
White shores to the West
Of a shining sea.

Jeff is the husband of Andrea whom I knew from Bob Jones. She was my sister's apartmentmate.

quote of the day poetry  

A prose writer gets tired of writing prose, and wants to be a poet. So
he begins every line with a capital letter, and keeps on writing prose.
