Funny True Story – Norma Findlay Tele’ St. Joseph’s Hospital

A sweet grandmother Telephoned St. Joseph’s Hospital. She timidly asked,

“Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?”

The operator said

“I’ll be glad to help, dear. What’s the name and room number of the patient?”

The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, Norma Findlay, Room 302.”

The operator replied

“Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse’s station for that room.”

After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said,

“I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her
blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her
Physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow.”

The grandmother said

“Thank you. That’s wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good News.”

The operator replied

“You’re more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?”

The grandmother said

“No, I’m Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells me shit.”

Comedian Will Ferrell Calling out to Gamers for Cancer Battle

Comedian Will Ferrell announced this week, an effort to battle cancer by offering gamers a chance to participate in a two-hour gaming event with him in San Francisco.

The initiative was launched on Indiegogo and it aims to raise US$375,000 for non-profit organizations, Cancer for College and Donate Games. Basically, the deal is a gamer will be required to contribute at least $10 for chance to play. A single randomly selected person will win an all-expenses-paid trip to San Francisco, including the opportunity to play games with Ferrell on Oct. 26 of this year.

The non-profit organization, Cancer for College, gives scholarships to cancer survivors. The funds that are raised through this latest effort will allow the organization to offer 150 new scholarships for cancer survivors.

Ferrell said in a statement:

“Our two-hour gaming extravaganza will be live broadcasted on Twitch for the world to watch, allowing everybody to watch in awe as I, Will Ferrell, show off my gaming skills and crack jokes with fellow top gamers and surprise guests!”

There will also be a variety of other perks, prizes and giveaways, he said, including a tube of Will Ferrell’s SuperMegaUVBlastMax Gamer’s Sunscreen, apparel, and a signed XBox 360 controller amongst other things.

This effort by Ferrell has brought to mind the recently popular (ALS) Ice Bucket Challenge, Lewis Ward, IDC’s research director for gaming, informed TechNewsWorld:

“When I see things like this, it brings to mind the idea of celebrities helping to raise funding for charities through public acts of dorkiness. I think because gamers tend to be tech-savvy and are online often, they’re probably more likely than other demographic groups for this kind of online fundraising.

This is probably going to be a huge hit after the fact on YouTube and elsewhere…I suspect this isn’t the last time we’ll see something like this, I think it will probably be part of a larger trend.”

How Does One Begin To Heal When The One You Loved Has Passed Away

1. Allow yourself to FEEL. . . Do not bury your feelings. When emotions surface, face them. Burying your feelings will make things much worse in the long run.

2. Remember that grief is a lifelong process or journey. It is different for everyone. The important thing is to begin to move forward with your “new normal” the best way that you can. Even if it is only baby steps.

3. It’s OK to speak of your loved one and to keep their memory alive! They were and are a part of you. That will never change. Keeping memories alive is actually healing. It only becomes damaging when you become consumed with them and it takes over your life. . . . Your loved one wants you to be happy. Please remember that.

4. Surround yourself with those who love you. You really do find out who are your true friends after suffering a loss. However, some people are very uncomfortable with death and do not know what to say. Try not to take it personally.

5. Join a greif support group such as being here on Missing Loved Ones. TALKING or EXPRESSING what you are feeling and then receiving validation from others that they feel the exact way, can bring much needed comfort and help you understand that the way you feel is NORMAL.

6. Remember that you are NOT alone. There are thousands on this very site who have lost a loved one. May you always feel some amount of peace and comfort and healing when you come here. Hoping that you will also SHARE our page with others. Too many people are hurting and they need support too. ♥

‘ICE’ (In Case of Emergency) Mobile Phone Campaign

mobile phone iceWe all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory. If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending to us would have our mobile phone but wouldn’t know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?

Hence this ‘ICE’ (In Case of Emergency) Campaign. The concept of ‘ICE’ is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As mobile phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name ‘ICE’ ( In Case Of Emergency).

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents there were always mobile phones with patients but they didn’t know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose.

In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as ‘ICE’.
