What Happens in VENT...Stays in VENT

Last week Steve and I went to Vegas for the NAB meeting.  I decided to take a week's vacation and tag along.  I just had a week of nothingness---shopping, sleeping, spaing, tanning, eating, walking, reading.  I did have to call in for a conference call on Wednesday, but  no one said anything about what was about to happen.

When I got to work on Monday, the ladies told me that one of our divisions was breaking up.  Two physicians were moving into their own office.  Apparently, there have been issues for the past few years and it has come to a head. 

Then, I learned that one of the physicians involved has a new baby.  Paulina said that it was great because there were fertility problems.  She learned a shocking thing----it was his baby with a receptionist at one of the surgery centers.  He and his wife divorced--and we now know why.

I was eating lunch-Dr, Kelsch's birthday lunch of a chicken casserole and cake.  I was getting something to drink and I heard about a cake his mom had for him that said Happy Birthday DD.  I said what did that mean---it meant his girlfriend and he are having twins in November.  Don't tell anyone---we all suspected she  was pregnant-but with one, not two!!

Cindy, my front office gal, at Greenfield has a Cardiac Cath last week, expecting to come back to work on Wednesday or Thursday.  Instead, she has a double bypass on Thursday and is out for another three to four weeks.

So, either I never take another vacation or I do take a vacation to shake things up a little!!!  We will see what happens when I am out for a week in July!!

No Talking!!!!

Me...of all people is under strict orders to not talk!!  I have had a cough and hoarseness for two weeks.  Not good when you manager an ENT office!!  Yesterday, Dr. Kelsch had enough and made me sit in the chair like a patient.  I had the ears checked....The nose checked...The nose sprayed (which I hate!).....and the scope passed to my vocal cords.  Surprise....Laryngitis...Reflux....and a Sinus infection, coming out of the sinus I had opened years ago.  So, back on the Prednisone, antibiotic and the reflux medication for 2 weeks.  With the order.....

NO TALKING THIS WEEKEND!!!

I think Steve got to him!!  If people would not ask me questions, I would not have to answer, right??  So...People do not talk to me and I will not talk to you!! Who am I kidding??
Steve just left for the bike race...so I can go and take his picture at turn 1 and on Alma School Road, but I cannot cheer for him (well, one cheer will be OK, after all this is his first race)!!

So, dear reader...if you see me this weekend, I am  not being rude...It is doctor's orders!!  One problem, I have to get the mop colored and cut today...Teresa loves to talk!!!
