Freaked out!!

Yesterday was a loooong day!! I spent the day at the hospital with my dad. He needed to have a PET Scan done. He drank the yucky stuff and then we sat and he drank some more and then we sat and he had his last drink. They hooked him up to the IV and stuck him in the machine and he freaked out!! While all of this was going on I was stitching away in the waiting room unaware of his freak out. They came out and said it would be about another hour and he would be done. In 20 mins he was out and said lets go. I said all done...he says for now. Then he goes on to tell me about his episode. He was supposed to be scanned from his thigh to his forehead they did not even get his whole chest done and he said that he said "get me the hell out of here!!" I have no idea if it will need to be redone or what so we are just waiting to see. The tech said he was not bad. He said that they have people who get in there and scream that they are killing them so I guess it really wasn't all that bad!!

I did get some stitching done...I am almost done with my exchange stitching. I will probably work on that for the rest of tonight and hopefully will have it all done.

Tomorrow we are supposed to get SNOW!! I am supposed to have a drs appointment in the am but we will see how bad the roads are. DH will be taking me so it probably will not matter as he will drive in anything.

No stitchy pictures to show but maybe tomorrow I will have some.

  1. Hope they got the scans they needed for your dad so he doesn't have to repeat it. Good luck with the snow!

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to  World War II History Network  and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at  Casualty Cards Database. Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found : On the first page it states :  While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.    Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.    To request a card, please send an email to   history.division@usmc.mil   or a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division Attn: Reference Branch 3078 Upshur Avenue Quantico, Virginia 22134 .    I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because

Elizabeth Jane Savage Thomas

Elizabeth Jane Savage is my husband's 3rd great grandmother.  She was born in Columbia County, Pennsylvania on 1 May 1821 to Henry and Elizabeth (Frantz) Savage.   Elizabeth married Joseph Thomas (#2 of 52) on 19 June 1854 and they had the following children: Daniel W. Thomas John W. Thomas Joshua Eugene Thomas Parvin Oscar Thomas Ella G. Thomas William James Thomas Anna E. Thomas When Joseph was killed in April of 1865 in the Civil War Elizabeth continued to take care of their children.  She did not remarry.  She remained in Fishing Creek Township, Columbia County, Pennsylvania where I found them in the 1860 Census.  From the List of Pensioners I found that in 1883 Elizabeth was getting $8.00 a month to care for her family.  Elizabeth died in April of 1890 and she is buried in Dodson Cemetery in Huntington Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania with other members of her husbands family. I don't know anything else about Eliza

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post , I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am. I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates  for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me. I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}. !Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week. !TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming lis
