My friend Rick had a durom cup hip replacement done a few years ago. He had been having knee and hip problems for a few years, and his doctor suggested that one of the zimmer durom cup types would be a good choice for his hip replacement procedure.
It has only been recently that Rick became aware that there have been some serious issues on zimmer durom cup raised in the medical and legal field. Apparently some of these cups have failed in a fairly high percentage of patients. Rick was telling me that he has scheduled an appointment with his doctor to check on his own device and see if it is still working correctly. He is concerned that if it is showing unusual signs of wear that he may need to hire a law firm to help him with a lawsuit to collect damages and pay for a replacement.

My niece Tiffany took ill last Friday, with a fever of 103.9. Lisa took her to her doctor, who ran the swine flu test. It came back negative, but the doctor said that he thought it was swine flu anyway. He said to just take her home and quarantine her; he was not going to give her any medication for it at all! It was only after Lisa demanded a prescription for Tamiflu that the doctor wrote her a script for it. There is plenty of Tamiflu on hand in the pharmacies, I don’t understand why the doctor didn’t want to write the script! I’m not too impressed by that at all!

Joe likes to take Myrtle Beach Golf Vacations every February with his wife Margie. They like to take advantage of the various Myrtle Beach Golf Packages and go for three weeks. February is a good time to leave this area and Golf Myrtle Beach - it is the coldest month of the year up here, so they can enjoy the nice warm weather of Myrtle Beach and laugh at us poor folks stuck up here in the cold!
I understand that there are so many Myrtle Beach Golf courses that you could stay there a month and never play the same course twice! That could certainly be a challenge – playing so many different courses in such a short period of time! You certainly wouldn’t get bored with the course! I can see why so many people would find that attractive!

There are not very many people that I know who are not interested in saving money. Well, all right, there is my mother-in-law who doesn’t want to use coupons and get discounts, but I can’t say that she is very budget-minded. Might be one reason she is always complaining about how poor she is!
One way people can save money is by taking the time to check out the different Car Insurance policies and rates between companies. You would be amazed by how much difference there can be between Auto Insurance companies! The only caveat though, is “buyer beware” – make sure that your Cheap Car Insurance policy will really cover everything you need and not leave you vulnerable to higher expenses if your car is involved in an accident!
I’ve noticed that whenever we have company that nobody but me seems to know how to turn off the lights and televisions! I will frequently walk from one room in the house down the hallway and walk past empty rooms that have all the lights on and televisions turned on. I go inside the room and turn off everything. I’ll notice that everyone in the house is busy in another room and does not appear to have any intention of returning to the rooms any time soon! I think I’m going to have to have a little chat with everyone in the house!
