also ladypink, maybe you can answer a question that's been troubling me for a few years now: why is 'kansas' pronounced 'kansas', but 'arkansas' isn't?
I've thought about that before too, I found this,

Why is Arkansas not spelt as it is pronounced, 'Arkansaw'?

It's not an official answer but it sounds good.

Just be careful when going through the metal detectors. Armed security will be all over you like bee's around honey.
Have a Doctor's note to carry with you.

What a day. Full circus.

I had to be at clinic at 7AM. they gave me a plastic bottle of some liquid, said I have to drink it and then wait one hour, then some scans. OK, I drank it but they forgot me. At 9:45 AM I went to ask if they still remember I'm there, and got finally to scan. Next blood and pee into a can, more tests, no food or drink, and then finally at 3 PM when I thought I can call a cab and go home, they told I have to stay here until Saturday.

Called Angie, who called my doctor, and brought a laptop, some books and magazines etc. to me, confiscated both my mobile phones I had with me and arranged with hospital staff that they do not give WiFi passwords to me because she after consulting my doctors decided it would be harmful for me to surf all night from hospital bed. Instead, she brought some Blue-Rays for me to watch, she knows how much I hate German TV because they dub everything. But, clever as she is, she brought me a laptop with a fully charged battery but no charger; instead, she told she replaces the battery tomorrow with another fully charged one. She also confiscated my wallet and cigarettes, leaving me with €20 for caféteria and no cigs.

Computer for three hours, no Internet, no phone, no money, no cigs. That's not life as I know it.

I waited until she went back home to take care of Mutti and called a good friend of mine, sending him to buy a HP or universal charger for laptop, two packs of Camel's, and most important: a HSDPA Mobile Modem with pre-paid SIM-card. Can not complain, this is what it shows now when typing this and watching streaming television from Finland:

It's now about one hour 20 minutes since Angie left and I have cigs, laptop charger and Internet :). It's 5:40 PM now and life is OK again.

Tomorrow more testing, home Saturday noon. At least I can surf and smoke, although it's PITA to have to spend 5 minutes to get to only allowed spot where you can smoke, and another 5 minutes to get back to my room.

Forgot to ask Hans to bring some whisky!

Left side of my body is almost paralyzed at the moment. Not paralyzed per se but not functioning. CAT technician said "Looks not good..." but refused to explain what he meant, said it's up to doctors to interpret the pics.

Tomorrow I know more. Now I'm just happy to be here (SF, not hospital!), reading and posting.

Your CAT tech should not have said a word about the test.
Like a plastic surgeon saying Whoops in surgery.
Think positive Kari..............Going without smokes may give your lungs a rest. Fresh air does wonders!
