 After a stammering introductory session about his dog, Marty, and comments about traveling through Ohio Amish country, Dr S comments on the PBS Memorial Day Special.  In it Dennis Frantz delivered a touching story about a Vietnam Veteran with over 40 years of misery from PTSD.

Nest is a long blog post review of a disastrous situation with a home delivered mom who was hypotensive and hemorrhaging.   The EMT's were called and seemed to misunderstand the situation, focusing on the (healthy) infant and scolding the lightheaded patient.  Charges were filed against the parents who paid $1200 fine for a misdemeanor, long after both baby and mom were forced into the hospital overnight to clarify their safety and health.

Dr S- Dr Jonas- later reviews his Memorial Day blog posts, "The Indy 500a nd the Honored Dead" and "Vietnam Veteran's Prayer".  Peace to all.
