Story
Tagline
Mom, writer, marketer, retired lawyer, teacher and social worker at heart rolling it all into everything I do.
Introduction
Radical conservative and/or flaming liberal, depending on who's making the assessment.  I value logic and compassion and don't believe that they're inconsistent.

I've been a teacher, a lawyer, a writer, a stay-at-home mom, a marketer, a newspaper reporter, a curriculum developer, run a non-profit, poured coffee, tossed salads, picked up old shingles in the hot sun and been a Daisy Girl Scout leader.  I read The Inarticulate Society and Janet Evanovich's latest novel with equal enthusiasm.  And I'm really, really, really crazy about my kid.

I've never written a negative review of a medical provider before, but this experience was beyond anything I could have imagined. I went in because of sudden, unexplained swelling around my neck that was putting pressure on my throat and was constrictive whenever I swallowed or inhaled. The doctor ordered a CT of my lungs to rule out the possibility of air leakage from a collapsed lung. I heard him receive results on the telephone outside my room shortly after 9 p.m. No one came into the room for another two hours, at which point he "reassured" me that I did not have a collapsed lung (never thought I did) and prepared to discharge me. When I asked about the neck swelling and pressure on my throat that I came in for, I was told that they couldn't address everything and I should contact my regular doctor in the morning. The nurse, Jill, said, "He may have to investigate further, though I have no idea what he'd even look for." I was sent home around midnight, very concerned about the increasing pressure on my throat. Jill advised me to come back if it got worse; when I reminded her that it had been getting worse the whole time I'd been there and asked how I was to know at what point it would be serious enough to return, she shrugged. Swelling continued to worsen overnight and make swallowing increasingly difficult. When I saw a doctor from my own physician's practice the next day, she and another doctor both expressed considerable surprise that I had been sent home without steroids to control the swelling until my follow-up appointment. While the complete disregard of the issue that brought me in was both frightening and frustrating, the worst part of the experience was the nurse, Jill, who grew ruder and more condescending as my symptoms worsened and, by the time I was discharged, actually seemed to be making a conscious effort to increase my anxiety.
