  • It’s not witty or daring–it’s just my life

    I never thought my life was anything out of the ordinary. Sure I’ve had some random adventures over the years, but who hasn’t?
    However, this past month was one I’m ready to put behind me–once and for all. It was an October to remember–and forget.
    But I suppose it started a week before that. I developed a little cough, along with a sinus headache. Ah, September, I thought. Allergy time.

  • What’s wrong with our schools?

    To the editor:

    I am writing to relay a story to your readers that my brother told me the other day. 

    My nephew is not doing so well in his math class. He says that the teacher will write problems on the board and when someone asks the teacher to explain it, is told to refer to the book.

  • Kidney disease survivor runs non-profit

    In 1968, at age 2, Lori Hartwell's kidneys became infected. Ten years later, she had to begin regular dialysis treatments in order to live.

    "I vividly remember all of it," said 44-year-old Hartwell in a telephone interview from her home in Glendale, Calif. "Back then (1978), I felt lousy, had high blood pressure, was retaining fluid, and was taking a handful of medication. I was itching a lot because of high phosphorus levels. I was anemic and couldn't walk far."

  • Summer Farewell

    I think it is safe to say that by this time of year most of us Floridians are ready to let summer go. Cooler days and nights are almost within reach and the change of season for me is always anticipated.

  • Inside a hospice care unit: comforts of home

    Diane Wayne

    An inpatient hospice care center offers all the comforts of home, as well as the compassion and care that patients and families need during an especially challenging time. While most hospice patients prefer to be at home, a care center provides “a home away from home” when patients require more intensive symptom management and pain relief than they can receive at home or in a hospital. It’s also a place where a caregiver who needs a break can trust that a loved one will be in good hands.
