Easter Week Endings

This has been a tough morning pain-wise. Not even an hour with an excellent physical therapist along Alameda de las Pulgas nor the local visit of President Obama – known for a public health care program “Obama Care” – was able to bring lasting relief. As entertaining as it was, laughter was short-lived … Mr. President’s motorcade made no less than three (3) parades in front of our group of Americans at the Country Corner Deli.
After all the excitement, I checked two bags (not old women, but luggage) into the RWC Sequoia Inn. Although visitors are welcome, you are cautioned that my pain management program has not been successful all week long.
The two enjoyable nights at Stanford University’s teaching hospital only have made my grief and suffering worse. I figure it is not my place to manage their Medical Center even in the name of better public health or quality patient care.
My efforts to see some great specialists during the last three days in Palo Alto have been thwarted because the demand for good healthcare is so great.
In two days, provided I can get at least one good night’s sleep, I will decide whether to live around here, take a vacation, or continue the present course.
I was planning to meet Durrell Gibson (my Afro-American homeless buddy I met in Bloomington, Indiana, last year who grew up in West Tennessee) in Memphis next week, but it does not look like I will make it.

I am pooped, yet motivated to feel better and help others improve their situations.
So help us God!
