    While I can't say with any experience because I have never been there, I think that I understand, just a little, where he is coming from and what he is thinking.
    I understand his thinking it tough know what could happen to those around you and to you the cost, the time out of their lives, the pain of wach and help you, the possiable out come that could happen (espeacaily with brain cancer.

    let him know We're thinking of him and you both.

    Once about 15 yr ago I was out ride my motor cycle when a wasp flew up my helmet (full face)

    I pull over in to a dive way tore my helmet of the the wasp went down my shirt I tore my shirt of and then I thought i might be down my pants so I droped my pants dance and waving my arms like a mad man. I stop after a while and looked at the house I was in front of and there was a family watching me wornder what my problem is.

    I pull myself back to gether and road off. I'm sure they have fogot the day a crazy man pull into their House.

    Update on my dad.


    My dad was planning to do what we all suspect that he was trying. He had a gun in his truck and was 400 miles from home near a town where we used to live.

    Apparently, since the operation, he has had some brain swelling, which he was given medication to help with. He doesn't take it.

    This swelling caused confusion and he got lost. While trying to figure out a gas pump, a truck driver helped him fill up his truck, sat and talked with him a while (nobody knows the details of the conversation) and got him back on the road towards home.

    At this time, they have taken his truck and his guns away and he has agreed to take his medication as directed.

    I'd have to say that truck driver had made a stop off on the highway to heaven.

    Hopefully with the medication he will think more clearly. My dad passed suddenly and we never had a chance to have more of the conversations that I would have liked. Even one day with him would have made a big difference. hope all goes well.

    Since I took the on call status at 1230 yesterday... I ran 7 calls yesterday and put one off till this morning. Got home at 930 last night. Had one call today for a resturant (yeah I know.... BBBZZZtttttttt) that needed a 1hp motor for a vent hood. told him we dont do that. Kept trying to get a motor out of me.... so far so good.... the attic this am was hot enough for the rest of my day! The company that installed the equip did not install an emergency pan drain line.... but the fitting with a small piece of pipe was stubbed vertically. Well that join in the pan was leaking. The insulation on the supply was not taped to the ahu. I think thats where a lot of moisture was coming from. Plus I think the drain had a slight blockage to it. I did install a pan float though!
