    but the 35 gallon is child's play!
    you need something that lasts you a few days without refills.
    Not to mention you need a generator.....

    Nice to see you, Xue. All the best with your surgery and recovery.

    I hear you on the apropos day, April 1, it's the day I took my first Martial Arts class. So I'm feeling good for you, brother.

    Yeah well... I also need a six-month sabbatical in Tuscany.... but I don't have an infinite supply of money to pay for it all. So, we work with what we can afford.

    Great to hear from you Xue. I hope all goes well on your surgery.

    We got back from my Ortho just a bit ago. I thought I was getting stitches out today but he wanted to wait another week. He scheduled the 2nd hardware removal for March 3rd and knee replacements for May 1st. I can tell a difference in how my leg feels with the two big pieces of hardware removed. It doesn't hurt as much to put rotational torque on my shin.

    Just look at the first knee and say (sternly), "Look what you started!"

    I just answered a call for an unknown medical emergency on an incoming flight.

    A guy had “a severely stubbed toe”

    My God, what is this country coming to?

    You know that Jack Daniel, the man who made the booze, died of gangrene from a severely stumped toe?!

    Lynchburg is not that far from us and I can remember stories of him dying of Sepsis that reportedly started in a toe when kicked his safe because he could not get it to open.

    I'm seconding Gerry's advice.

    Up until about 5 years ago, I would sternly tell my body not to get sick/not to get hurt, and it would listen (or I'd just ignore it :rolleyes:). Since I started allowing my body to get sick/injured and go to the doctors for advice, I've had a ton more issues that seem to have come out of nowhere. Much better to avoid the doctors completely and hope the pain goes away on it's own.

    - Person A had a kidney tumor. He ignored doctor's opinion and tumor grew into watermelon size. He died 4 years later.
    - Person B had a kidney tumor. He took doctor's opinion and had cryotherapy (freeze the tumor), he lived health and happy ever after.

    One is lucky if he can:

    - born healthy,
    - grow happy,
    - sick early (detect your sickness as early as possible).
    - die fast (die in sleep is the best way to die).

    For some reason I got pretty lightheaded in class today... it went away real quickly, and I was able to quickly get back to class ,but it's weird that it just randomly happened during class... aside from that great class today!123
