A career in the medical field and it’s allied service is rewarding and fulfilling. This has been known for hundreds of years and is still very much true today as it was before.

For Mrs. M, moving permanently to a nursing home was not just her only option, it became a true blessing. Thanks to the speech therapists, she was re-taught to eat and drink so that the food no longer traveled to her lungs. In a matter of a few weeks, she was able to go from drinking only thickened liquids and pureed food to being able to eat anything she wants including pop corn and potato chips, two of her favorite foods. She also can drink water, soft drinks, and iced tea with no side effects. Physical therapists even got her walking again to some extent. She rarely suffers from limb pain. Her legs no longer lock. They also have slowed down the negative effects of her Parkinson’s symptoms.
Shaggy and Scooby attended the Calfry as HAAM volunteers. They roamed the festival, posed for pictures and collected donations for HAAM. They learned about the Calfry on facebook, where a “mostly vegetarian” friend posted that she would eat a calf fry if she could raise at least $50 for the cause. Shaggy and Scooby met her calf fry eating challenge. Together the trio raised over $200. Shaggy and Scooby ate calf fries for the first time and the occasion was recorded on video.
“Sort of. I was in the animal health care services for eight years when I decided to sent some sample photos to a photographer four years ago and within three weeks I was in the Dominican Republic shooting for a well-known magazine, and before I knew it, I was living a life I never fathomed.
Getting into the car: Stand in the open door (on the passenger’s side if the cast is on your right leg, on the driver’s side if the cast is on your left leg) with your back to the seat. Sit down on the seat, then use your arms and uninjured leg to push yourself across the seat until your back is against the door on the far side of the vehicle. You will drag the injured leg on the seat. Your helper then puts your crutches on the floor.
Even though Mrs. M sometimes still has some bad days, she has miraculously bounced back from death’s door a half dozen times. Much of the time, she is happy, reveling in visits from loved ones and friends, adores and relishes eating large quantities of food, and enjoys visiting the occasional restaurant. She also gets a kick out of the fact that she seems to be one of the favorite residents of the nursing home staff.
