No, I Didn't Hit Him in the Head

with a frying pan.These are the injuries Corby got at 4am this morning when he passed out in the bathroom. I called an ambulance, and he was transported to St. Francis. After running blood tests and an EKG, they determined it was not a heart attack. Actually, they couldn't really determine what caused it. This has happened before - twice - but it's been about 7 years since the last one. He was having bad cramps and was nauseous before passing out. They call it "vasovagal syncope" - where extreme pain or shock makes you pass out. After running the tests and calling our doctor, they released him around 7am to rest at home for a few days. He will be going to the doctor on Monday and they will probably set him up with a 24 or 48-hour heart monitor just to make sure his heart is beating correctly. Needless to say it freaks me out when this happens. Nothing like waking up from a deep sleep by hearing a LOUD crash! He's a little stiff and sore from hitting - well - we're not really sure what he hit, but his shoulder hurts as well as his head. Kaitlin went to the hospital with me - we actually beat the ambulance there!

Keep us in your prayers!

I sure hope Corby is doing better now! Sorry to hear about your exciting night. I can't help putting the last 2 posts together, I would sure be sick if I unloaded 2 trucks in frigid weather. It was -2 here in IN when we arrived and the night before it was -20! Cold trip so far, hope it warms up tomorrow.

Things happen in groups it seems. Hope Corby is on his way to recovery and NEVER has another one of those attacks. Anne

Well i am glad Linda called me before i saw the picture of Corby. Looks like he was in a fight with the bathroom and the bathroom won. Believe me i have had fights with the kitchen and ended up sitting on the floor with a carton of cottage cheese in one hand, at least i didn't drop the cottage cheese, ha ha. Sometimes we have to laugh about things that happen in our lives. Love ya Rhonda

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

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.
The Nanny Arrangement

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.

Life Goes On

Life changed for me on July 17, 2017. I was laid off from the place I worked for almost 41 years.

I wasn't totally surprised. After all, layoffs have become the norm at newspapers. I was hoping I could make it at least another year.

But...alas...I didn't.

The Wichita Eagle has been my home and my life for so long. I started just after I turned 20 years old. Back in the good old days. What have I done over the years?

Job 1 - Classified Ad Taker
Job 2 - Classified Ad Support Staff
Job 3 - Ad Services Head Typist
Job 4 - Newspaper Layout Assistant
Job 5 - Production Director Secretary
Job 6 - VP/Operations Administrative Assistant
Job 7 - Executive Administrative Assistant and Layout Coordinator
Job 8 - Page Layout Manager
Job 9 - Prepress Manager
Job 10 - Advertising Customer Service Manager

There are other job duties in between all of these milestones. I dedicated my heart and soul to the Eagle. I started when I was so young. I met my husband while I worked there. I had all three of my child…
