April 28, 1990 At least my being in Children's Hospital I was able to make a Mother's Day gift.......I wouldn't have been able to do anything from an adult hospital........odd as it sounds.LOL
LOL, I know the feeling. I spent Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, New Years, my Birthday, Valentine's Day, St. Patricks Day.... I might be missing a few holidays.... in the hospital/rehab. 8 months in all. I was so glad they had the art evenings in rehab! LOL. I was still in the hospital at Xmas and in the middle of the night the nurses stole the tree from the hallway, and put it at the end of my bed and put my gifts under it. LOL they burst in the dorr tree and all and said "oh, your awake!" LOL how could I not be with them coming in every 15 minutes to make sure I was asleep so they could sneak in the tree! LOL they also had a bow and bell around my Sophie's neck (my guide dog) who they use to play with at the desk while I was sleeping!

Insurer reveals 'bad driving day'
The most dangerous day to be on the road is Friday, 18 January, according to car insurance provider Admiral.
After analysing 1.8 million claims received over the past 15 years, it has identified the days when accidents are most likely to occur.
Historically, more accidents happen on 18 January than any other date in the year, while Friday is the most common day of the week for crashes.
Unsurprisingly, the date with the least reported incidents is 29 February.
According to Admiral's research, the next safest dates are 25 and 26 December, when the roads tend to be very quiet.
For the same reason, the report highlights Sunday as the days of the week when accidents are least likely to occur, followed by Saturday.
The vast majority of problems happen on weekdays when the roads are busier.
TEN WORST DAYS FOR DRIVING
1. 18 January
2. 20 December
3. 27 October
4. 22 March
5. 20 July
6. 1 October
7. 21 October
8. 1 November
9. 15 December
10. 20 October
"It's not surprising to see that the worst day of the week for accidents is a Friday," said Admiral managing director, Sue Longthorn.
"People are tired after a long week at work and can easily get caught up thinking about their weekend plans instead of the road ahead."
But she said it was less clear why there was such a concentration of incidents on 18 January.
"It could be that people have a lot on their mind as they haven't been paid for a while, the bills are coming in, it's dark, the weather's often foul and the fun of the festive period is a long and distant memory," she added.
And she warned drivers not to be complacent on 29 February 2008 as this leap year the extra day falls on a Friday.

Do you visit Thoms often? I did my rehab there back in the late fall of 99. Met some great people there.
Some of the older injuries would pay visits to us newer ones. George Miller, Slim, they were really inspiring. They also had this young brunette PT that was a knockout. The seating PT was a looker also, I think her name was Barbara.
