    Commander_Barriss & Starcoll, I am so sorry to hear about your loss, that is so sad when you both wanted it so much. I know what you have gone thru, I myself lost 2, between Juniornutt 1 & Juniornutt 2. I found the emotional pain was worse than the physical. I really hope that you two are okay. Heart felt sympathies to you both from all the Nutt family. [:D]

    12??? Oh my gosh!! I have an aunt who went to a dentist, told she needed 2 fillings, got 1 done that day, & had to go to another dentist to get the 2nd one done. He told her that she didn't need it & she later found out the 1st one wasn't needed. So my advice is that when you move back to SA, get another opinion. It may save you pain & money.

    I have to agree. I have changed dentists, as my previous dentist was doing just that, over charging for services. I asked to have my daughters teeth cleaned (chlorine discolours teeth) and instead of getting a dentist, I got a 'hygienist' who just put a mousse on her teeth that did nothing and then charged me $130 for the pleasure!!! You can buy tooth mousse at the Chemist!! I found a second dentist in a small practice, and she actually cleaned my daughters teeth with the correct stuff and charged only the 'scheduled Medibank fee', meaning NO GAP!! Since then I have gotten my mouth guard from her for my Medibank fee and she was brilliant in repairing two cracked teeth at short notice. Don't always go to the flashy ones, as they have to pay for all the flash somehow! :p

    *transmission incoming*

    Glad the transmissions came through. . .

    I am in a room with 2 very sick and very old women.
    One how randomly screams 'Aow' and the other one that keeps forgetting I don't speak English, and has the German TV on very loud.

    The day nurses are not nice, the one at night is so wonderful, and has be the best English.

    I might be here for a long time, the doctors dont say much about anything. . .I have a viurs at this point, but thats about all the info I could gather (they do have good english) . .I feel better, the 5L of fluid and food help, but still my body is intent on clearing out itself at a rapid and un-healthy pace. The day after it stops, I should be let out. . .but when that is. . I hope soon. . .

    At least German is close-ish to english. . .sometimes. . .I just want to come home, being sick 17000km away from everyone you care about (and who cares about you) is very very hard.

    *end of transmission*

    Sounds like the rotten virus that is sweeping through the country. I've had it, pretty bad. They believe it was brought into Australia by the 'pilgrims' who came here to see the Pope. It's apparently one of the things we Aussies haven't seen anything like before, and thats why it's knocking everyone it touches down. Expect a cough that lasts a few weeks after it. [:D]
