    Can you explain what you mean by "avoided putting the patient through the fear of "going to die""   What do you mean by that?

    yes I got the email,  I'm not sure if I want to be notified of every single post of my followers.  but hey, maybe I do.  That's a lot of emails.  I have to check the settings.  I just checked the settings, and I can set it to send one email a day with all the messages from followers.  that sounds like the thing todo.

    with the time it was down I was worried that the company doing your upgrade had damaged your database.  Good to see it back up. 
     
    I like the new crisp look and feel of the site.

    So start posting and livening up the place, I'd recommend a scenario or two!!, Those seem to bring in the most responses.

    Especially after the guy laid in a hospital bed for a couple of days.

    Did they ever do any PE studies to rule those out?

    Sounds like this was just his time to go.

    I've been doing more research, well internet stalking, and I'm reading that these are in more areas than in just the one place mentioned in this original article.

    The results from what I hear are pretty good. more to come as soon as those in my office go home, can't do much stalk(surfing) while at work.

    I think that you are doing the best you can with what you have. Just advertise here and at other sites. If you want pm me and I'll give you a site to go to or just look at my signature and get a account there, you can talk about your needs there all you want. Look at my signature grasshopper.

    What about being a prison transport medic on the prison planes? Sort of like Con-air? I have a contact if I can ever get a hold of him I can ask him if they hire medics? I think they do. He said that it's a great gig and he lives in Costa Rica and flies in on the plane when it lands and drops off the deportees there and he flies out and takes a couple of flights and then flies home. He make great money. Plus he loves it.

    Dude, in 97% of all countries that would get me arrested and the website shut down. YOU definately do NOT want to see this fat guy in pasties.

    I seem to remember you talked a lot about the Priscilla's or some shop in Grand Rapids where you spent a large amount of time, maybe you should model that stuff you bought. That might just up our membership by 800% and make the chat room visited again.
