Today at the hospital

at the sign in desk, there was a sign "This desk takes care of two departments. Just because someone comes in after you and gets called first does not mean they got taken ahead of you." It had never been there before. Two days ago I saw a sign somewhere else sort of on the same order. What in the heck is wrong with people nowadays? Whatever happened to manners and civil discourse? Is everyone looking for something to fight with someone about?

In the first place the X-ray department has about 15 different departments and the person doing stress tests might be ready for another patient before the department doing CT scans. There is no first come, first serve. If you are there for a mammogram and that department is busy, the first person called might be someone needing an MRI and that tech is ready for that person. And across the hall the desk also signs people there for physical therapy and everyone uses the same waiting area.

I hate to think what another 10 years will bring to this country at the rate we are becoming Neanderthals.

There is something seriously wrong with out legal system

Murrysville man gets probation, house arrest in estranged wife's 2017 death

Elizabeth Arrington’s memories of Feb. 6, 2017, constantly replay in her mind.

Arrington had been trying to get in touch with her daughter but got no answer. Finally, she called her estranged son-in-law to come to her daughter’s Penn Hills home to let her in. Once he got there, he pushed the door open so Arrington could go in first.

Arrington found her oldest daughter’s body on the bedroom floor.

“I sat there, trying to wake her up, she was so very cold, she was covered in bruises,” Arrington told the court on Wednesday. “I shook her, I screamed, ‘Please wake up, please God help me.’”

She asked her son-in-law, Antonio Vecchiola, to call 911. A dispatcher told him to start CPR.

“After about 30 seconds, you got on your knees, you pumped your hands on her chest three times, you bent over to give her your breath, and you gagged, got up and walked out of the room,” Arrington told Vecchiola. “You knew she was dead.”


He pled guilty to manslaughter and got 1 year house arrest and probation.

That is not justice for beating your wife to death. That is not even a slap on the wrist.

Got my first shot yesterday.

Feeling very excited to be able to pick up my mentally challenged son and take him to visit some of my other adult son and daughters for the first time in a year. We can be a family again.
