    Never make a phone call when..........

    ..............you are zonked out on drugs.
    In my case, the legal kind.
    I had a procedure at the VA hospital Friday. My daughter came to pick me up. After the procedure, with anesthesia, I don't remember getting dressed but my daughter says I dressed myself. I don't remember her being at the hospital to get me or wheel me out to her car. I don't remember the ride to her house, I don't remember anything.
    But, according to my daughter, while in the car I got concerned about losing my bear claw necklace (I wear it 24/7 and have for more than 40 years) so I dialed what I thought was the hospital, instead I got a Lockheed-Martin factory somewhere. Daughter says (while laughing so hard her ribs almost cracked) the conversation was a riot. Whoever I got at the LM plant was really trying to help me find my necklace and I wasn't making any sense at all. Apparently it went on for quite some time.
    I think it is just as well I don't remember anything.
    BTW, my necklace was in my luggage.

    Thanks, Brent. I don't understand the findings report. And I have some training in that area too. I do know they want me back in three weeks for follow-up consultation.

    Frank, last week I had a similar lack of understanding when I got the MRI results regarding my neck. I ended up spending some quality time with my buddy Google to clear up the various terms that were used. That helped me out quite a bit.

    I do hope that whatever issue you're looking into is resolved quickly and easily.
