Happy Fall....Let It SNOW......random post!!

Well, well, well, I have made it back to blog land. I'm once again not making any excuses, just have not had much interest in blogging lately!! Pure honesty!!
This week has been a not so steller week!! We got our first snow storm/blizzard of the season. Had I been scheduled to work in the morning, as usual, I would not have made it in!! However, I was on call and made it with no problem, and better yet, NO TRAUMAS from the storm!! Not sure how we got so lucky.....??
Last week, I was home sick for 3 days, and the remainder of the week I took my son to the 2 largest Universities in North Dakota to meet with admissions and have a tour of the college. It was alot to take in, but I think we had our questions answered. Now to make a decision as to where to go......hmmmm, UND or NDSU?? Oh and I am still not feeling well, throat hurts most the time, and still coughing.
While touring colleges, I got to spend some time with my Great Nephew, Brooks. Wow, hes getting big and is such a good little boy!! My sister is his full time daycare, so she gets to see him daily, it's good to know he's in good hands.
This past week we had to say goodbye to one of my favorite physicians.....Dr Fischbach passed away unexpectedly on October 22. It was not a good day, and has not been a good week at work for anyone. We all knew he wasn't in the best of health, but never did think he would leave least without a heads up!! I was out of town, and was crushed!! He just recently had learned how to do robotic surgery, which was so nice for him, as he was able to sit at the surgeons console and do his work, rather then the long hours on his feet. (yes, he was not very healthy!!) He was so proud of his accomplishments, and how well his patients did after surgery. However, not as proud as we were of him. He was simply amazing and is missed so much already. Below is a picture of my friends baby and Fisch, he delivered her on October 6th, 2010. He also delivered my son, however, I never did get a picture with him, sadly!!

That's all I have for now.....hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! I'm going to leave you with one of Alex's senior pictures..........
