Oh, good grief!

You know, you're 72 right now, so *what* do you think you're doing falling out of a friggin' tree?! I swear, you're definitely *his* father, not mine (nor FSU's)! I'm neither that clumsy nor that foolish. (For one thing, I'd call a tree trimming service.)

And that is how my day began today. I have since discovered how badly organised our Health Region online and phone-in service is and just how bad the walk-in situation is here. The Stelmach government can increase our health care budget as much as they like; if they can't bloody well get enough doctors with our current budget, how is increasing that budget going to get more doctors here? (Unless you're talking increasing the incentives to come.)

In any case, male parental has now been sent off to the 24 hour clinic downtown (20 mins by car) even though the bloody hospital is far closer (5-10 mins). He has a gash on his arm that needs cleaning up and probably stitching (as well as a Tetanus booster I'm sure), but he certainly doesn't need the emergency centre. And for those who are thinking why downtown, the walk-in clinics here are *both* closed (5 mins on foot). Two others nearby are closed. I realise it's Sunday, but at least two of those four are supposed to be open on Sunday afternoons, but because of staff shortages they're closed. *sigh*


And apparently mine is not the only digital camera that's decided to take a walk. ^^; But I now have photos up. Some of them show certain aspects that was bugging me about Scherherazade's Slippers. :P In any case, the photos. :P

And hopefully the male parental will learn, but I shure wouldn't bet on it. The idiot insisted on finishing the trimming of the stupid tree before going to the clinic. *sigh*
