The End of Emergency in Ottawa

All right…this is the final result of my near death experience in Ottawa (earlier post). I went to a neurologist a couple of days ago and she told me I had damaged the nerve that runs over my elbow…she called it my funny bone. I think we should call it my crazy bone as I obviously lost my mind during this entire experience. She then warned me about putting my elbows on the table…even asked me if I had my elbow on the table when I was at the restaurant in Ottawa when the initial problem happened…probably, with a book in my hand. After trips to two different emergency rooms, making my stomach bleed from taking all that aspirin, caffeine withdrawal headaches and all the accompanying stress, my diagnosis is that I must have hit my crazy bone! Suggested treatment: keep your elbows off all hard surfaces…Mabel Mabel, strong and able, get your elbows off the table. The universe has a really good sense of humor.
