My BIL's current issue is healing from a ruptured appendix.  He texted us on Tues evening he was headed to the hosp after a doc visit id'ed it as an appendix issue and not the suspected hernia.  He got there Tues night and spent all night waiting for the emergency surgery until 10am Wed when it burst as they opened him up.  Lots of cleanout to get all the goopy stuff (his description) and antibiotics and other stuff going on to make sure it drains.  Not sure what the surgery delay was related to but its a shame it got to the point it did.

 

... Wow, so sorry to hear this. Mine almost burst when I was in the 3rd grade on a camping trip to Canada. We drove and visited relatives along the way and stopping in Toledo I got what they thought was "stomach flu" and the next morning when we were getting ready to leave for Pittsburg the pain was insane when I tried to move. My Dad carried me in to the ER and they operated within an hour. They said it was ready to burst any second so I was luckier than your BIL. Back then it was a major surgery and I was in the hospital for 3 days. I hope he recovers with no complications.

The big outside scholarship she has is technically only good for state schools. I've already been in contact with the financial aid office, who were very helpful and they recommended I talk with Admissions about her current scholarships and how they might be applied or if they might have an equivalent. The biggest issue right now is time - BU wants a decision and a non-refundable deposit by tomorrow, while every other school doesn't need a decision until early January on average. 

Yup, I was in the same situation. Had to put up $400.00 to hold the semester price for all four years and sign by this date or the athletic scholarship goes away. Now D1 Schools are not even allowed to recruit yet. A D1 school if interested would probably offer a full ride. But you are taking the chance of potentially not getting recruited. So she took the offer, and it was her school of choice.  The Corona has screwed up so much!

I absolutely hated college when I went for a semester and a half. Spent 20g on that one year. I now make more as a firefighter paramedic than I would have with the job I was going to college for. I'll be making just about 70k in a two years, which for no degree is pretty freaking awesome. I'd love to see more people go to trade schools and get good jobs that route because those jobs are always needed.

You sound like Mike Rowe.  Good job!!

Good to hear your feeling better and ready to resume golf 👍.  So what benefits on the course, at the clubhouse, or at home come with the septuagenarian status?

Unpacked a new Samsung TV and went to set-up and all I get is sound - no picture. Frustrating! I did call Samsung Tech Support (not US based). They are sending a tech out to see what's wrong but it won't be til Jan 6th. 🤬

Samsung support had always been good for me. Covid is really slowing things down I would guess 😠
