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

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post

Evernote To Do List Update

Last month I started keeping track of my to do list in Evernote using TaskClone.  It worked great and with a few minor adjustments this moth has been going even better. One of my concerns was that My Task List note in Evernote was going to get very long and hard to navigate if I kept adding to the bottom of the list.  At the end of June I made a copy of the note and renamed it to z -- My Task List -- 26 June 2015 and moved it to my Research notebook. Now that I had a copy of My Task List note I reviewed my original note and realized that I did not need to use date headings and removed them and all completed tasks.  I saw that most of my to dos were topic related mostly by surname.  With a little rearranging I came up with my new to do list for the month of July.  As I add more notes TaskClone pulls the to dos and adds them to the bottom of the list.  I cut and paste them in the correct area. At the end of the month I will make a copy of the note, rename it (following t
