Mom had a doctor's appointment at 3 today. I got home at 7. I got to Presby. Manor at 2:20 to pick her up. 20 minutes later, after chasing down her nurse, we got the paperwork we needed to take to the doctor. I must interject, they normally have the paperwork ready. Today wasn't a good day to be running late though, as her doctor recently moved to Derby, so we were headed quite a distance to a place we'd never been before. We hit Derby about 3:05, but the directions I'd been given were bogus. After driving around, stopping twice for directions, and calling the clinic, we finally made it at 3:25. When we checked in, we were told that we may have to reschedule because we were more than 15 minutes late. Fortunately, the doctor said she'd go ahead and take us. After a 5 minute wait, the nurse took us back and we answered all of her questions. ONE HOUR LATER, at 5:15, we were still waiting on the doctor. Mom and I were having a great visit, so we weren't freaking out. The doctor finally came in at 5:30 and apologized. Apparently, she looked for mom and when she didn't realize we were in one of the rooms, she moved on to the next patient. That patient ended up being a HUGE problem, and when she finally left that patient they told her we were still there. She felt really bad, but still.....IT WAS A LONG AFTERNOON! We finally left the doctor's office at 6, and after stopping for NuWay and taking mom home, I got home at 7. And yes, I needed a beer by the time I got home!

Is her dr. a the Derby Family Med Center?

no, she's now at the Wichita Clinic there. She was down by St. Francis, which worked great, but man, Derby is a long ways to go from Zoo & West!

REVIEW - Before and Again by Barbara Delinsky

4 Stars
St. Martin's Press
Release date: June 26, 2018

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I've been reading Delinksy's books for years, and she's always an author I can count on for a good read. This book is no exception. I did find it a little harder to get into than previous books, it seemed a bit disjointed at first. Thus 4 stars instead of 5.

The book is about Mackenzie Cooper, who moved to a small town to lose herself and get away from a tragic occurrence in her life. It delves deeply into the despair of losing a child (this happens at the very beginning so it's not a spoiler) and what happens between the spouses who are having trouble communicating their pain. It also deals with Mackenzie's mother and brother, and their estrangement.

Suddenly, Mackenzie's ex-husband appears, in HER town, HER haven. Can they find their way back together, or is the past too painful to forget?

The Osmonds on PBS

I've never hidden my obsession with the Osmonds. Donny and his oldest performing brother, Alan, were my favorites. While "flipping" channels tonight around 7pm, Corby came across the Osmonds 50th Anniversary concert in Las Vegas on PBS. It was filmed last August. Can you believe the oldest brothers have been performing for 50 years? I can tell you exactly how old every Osmond brother is. They are all 2 years apart, Alan is 58, Wayne is 56, Merrill is 54, Jay is 52 and Donny is a year younger than me. He turned 50 in December. (Guess that tells everybody how old I am, huh?). Marie is 48, and oops, I'm not sure how old "baby" Jimmy is.
I was jamming to all those 70's songs: Double Lovin', One Bad Apple, Puppy Love, Down by the Lazy River, Yo-Yo, Love Me For a Reason, Crazy Horses, The Proud One, Let Me In, and the very best harmony ever - He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother! What a performance! Alan has MS now, so doesn't perform much, but he w…

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.
