QUOTE FOR THIS POST

"To communicate with the world is a wonderful adventure."

Forrest Caricofe


POSTCROSSING

**I've told you before about Mother and I's adventure with Postcrossing. It is a web

site that offers people from around the world to exchange picture postcards at no

cost. When Mother was alive I would send the postcards and Mother enjoyed looking

and reading them. After Mother died I stopped sending and receiving postcards for a

while, but started to send postcards again starting several months ago. 

I recently sent postcards to people in the countries of Austria, Switzerland, Taiwan,

Lithuania, Germany, Japan and China. 

Today I will start uploading each picture postcard one at a time for the next 7 days 

including today with information on my web site about the city in the country that

they are from.

I will upload the picture postcard I sent to Austria today.


Austria

Country in Europe

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Austria is a German-speaking country in Central Europe, characterized by mountain 

villages, baroque architecture, Imperial history and rugged Alpine terrain. Vienna, 

its Danube River capital, is home to the Schönbrunn and Hofburg palaces. It has 

counted Mozart, Strauss and Freud among its residents. The country’s other notable 

regions include the northern Bohemian Forest, Traunsee Lake and eastern hillside 

vineyards.

Capital: Vienna.

Capital and largest city: Vienna; 48°12′N 16°21′E / 48.200°N 16.350°E.

Currency: Euro.

Population: 8.474 million (2013) World Bank.

Official languages: German, Hungarian, Slovenian, Austrian German.


TODAY

**11:28 AM 4/13/2017 EDT. I'm on the 3rd floor of the Wooster Community 

Hospital where several doctors are located including everyone in the house's primary 

care doctor, Dr.Kwok. Bill has an appointment with his cardioligist at 11:00 and with

Dr. Kwok at 1:00. Bill is in the cardiologist's office right now. Dr. Kwok does not want 

to provide refills for Bill's prescription medications because of Bill's refusal to become 

a patient of hospice. I went into Dr. Kwok's office before sitting in this waiting room 

and said there are different forms of hospice. The only thing I can compare hospice to

is when Mother was in hospice and she could not do anything for herself. Bill can do a

a lot of things for himself. So I will go in with Bill to see Dr. Kwok and perhaps find

out what form of hospice might benefit Bill and at the same time reaching some sort

of compromise with Dr. Kwok.

**4:45 PM 4/13/2017 EDT. Bill's cardioligist admitted him to the hospital after finding

out that Bill's heart was in defib and racing at about 170 beats per minute, so I had

to cancel Bill's appointment with Dr. Kwok.

TO BE CONTINUED TOMORROW....


HEALTH 

**12:15 PM 4/12/2017 EDT. I did not jog yesterday. My right knee is swollen, an old

injury, but right now I'm going to walk to Troyer Road and then jog for a little 

ways to see how I do.

**12:53 PM 4/12/2017 EDT. I just got back from jogging 1600 paces on a swollen

knee.

**9:14 AM 4/13/2017 EDT. I have a knee brace on this morning after icing the 

knee last night.
