Rapid Intervention - Blogs of Note! - 60,000 Visitors

Port Townsend, today. Much has transpired since my last posting!

May 3. Primary Care Physician seeing indicators that are troubling. She advises me to see cardiology asap.

May 13.
Cardiology seeing indicators that are troubling. He advises me immediate intervention is required.

May 18.
Medical Imaging at Harrison Hospital 50 miles to the south in Bremerton, Washington performs a Percutanueous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA).

Finds cause of troubling indicator! 80% blockage in an artery!

May 19.
Jumped in my van and headed to the nearest Arbies - we don't have one in Port Townsend - for a medium roast beef and small chocolate frosty!

Spent the overnight introducing the night shift nurses in the Progressive Care Unit (PCA) to my Blog. In this business, you have to be constantly marketing! Besides, as you know, there is no such thing as "sleep" in a hospital. And I have several tricks I pull on nurses, to keep them on their toes, and me from becoming bored!

The Mt. St. Helens - BN Connection was a big hit, since many were too young to know what had happened down at the other end of the state 30 years ago. Another nurse read through both articles on the Gulf Disaster.


Blogs of Note

I'm still not sure how it happened, but somehow "Oil-Electric" was selected to be listed in "Blogs of Note." That happened 14 days ago. As a result of that endorsement, average readership shot up from around 100 per day, to more than 500 per day.

In 14 days, we received 6,519 visitors, and signed up 12 new "Followers," all of which pushed us over 60,000 visitors since we began publishing! I'm sure many were not rail fans, as "Blogs of Note" are selected from the Google Blogger Family. But if you have bookmarked us, "Welcome Aboard!"




So. I've ridden an emotional roller-coaster the past few days. Think I'll kick back with my pooch and take a walk on the beach - when it stops raining! You have more than enough reading to keep you going 'till I fire up the Dell once more.

Sorry to hear about the medical issue, I hope you are better now.

And a high five on the "Blog Of Note". My blog was honoured on April 23. There must be a train theme going on at Google.

Thank you, sir! Taking it easy for a few days. I thought I saw your name on the "Blogs of Note List," but then this issue came up and I lost track. Congratulations to you also!
