Bill, do I remember correctly that you use Sea Monkey? If so, could you tell me what you especially like about it vs the others? Thx!
I use SeaMonkey here, for CompuServe, and for the Chicago Tribune. I use Internet Explorer for everything else -- as my default when I click on a link. The Tribune has a tendency to crash browsers, probably because of their ads. That seems to happen less frequently with SeaMonkey, which also recovers more gracefully from a crash. And here, Internet Explorer has a tendency to forget that I am signed in with Google, which SeaMonkey doesn't.The main reason I use Internet Explorer as my default is that I often want to download PDFs for one-time information without saving them. SeaMonkey requires that they be saved. Another minor point is that when I turn off high contrast because it doesn't work with a specific web page (boo! to the page designer) that immediately takes effect in Internet Explorer while you need to refresh the page in SeaMonkey. As far as I could determine, none of the others allow high contrast at all, so that ruled them out for me.
Thanks! My credit card provider is refusing to let me use their site till I up date. But I'm so far back, downloading a new broswer seems better. Trying to manage that.
Grandniece update: Tomorrow her immediate family is meeting with the medical team, the social worker, and the minister(s). So far, no change. I think we won't really know until they take her out of the induced coma. Since the swelling peaks on day 5-7 I'm guessing it will be Sunday or Monday before that happens. Everyone is exhausted. :-(
Oh, my, oh my. I remember they did that every once in a while at the trauma center where I used to work. They certainly don't do it casually, but when they do, they don't do it by halves. Holding everyone in the light.Alan
Thanks for the update. I've been checking in regularly and reminding myself that no news is no news. This is better than it might have been.
Alan, well, this family doesn't do this by halves either. Having already shepherded their own teen daughter through Acute Myeloid Leukemia at this age, and having more recently companioned the head of their family through Pancreatic Cancer, this family knows how to prepare for a team meeting. What's more, they probably know some of the docs and nurses well. They keep a notebook and keep all the docs and visits and plans straight like nobody in the hospital does. And they don't waste time chatting with staff unnecessarily or needily. I sat in on one such meeting five years ago. And when the psychologist began to broach a delicate subject they could immediately put that question to rest with a kindly expressed "That has already been decided" and they all moved on. Their medical notebook has tabs.
Maybe, Bill. Hope so.Yet that remains to be seen.
