Sorry Bobby. Despite growing up in CA, I don't understand that reference.

You must mean corporal punishment.
Somewhere around 1971 or 72
The took some unruly kid and spanked him with a paddle infront of my class..the teacher was old and mean

In Junior High we had a case where our music teacher (an ex-nun) got fed up with us and smacked the top of the piano with the yardstick she always carried. This time the yardstick became two rulers, one she was still holding and the longer one flying into the class. No one was seriously hurt, but someone must have said something to her because she never physically threatened us. Of course, we never got unruly after that, either.

lparsons21, continued prayers for your recovery. My Sister-in-Law had a stroke about a decade ago and she has made good progress, but she had spent a week in ICU due to the severity.

Well, this has been a crap year for me, health wise. A couple days ago I passed out and was unresponsive after completing the daily physical therapy. My heart rate dropped below 30 3 times. Luckily I was in the hospital and they rushed me to the ER.
They battled getting my heart rate to 50 and then decided I needed a permanent pacemaker. Took me over to the next town that had a cath lab and got that put in. Quick and nearly painless.
I have no actual memory of passing out, just felt funny and while in my head I was talking to someone, I actually wasn’t. Scared the crap out of the therapist and she called me yesterday.
So therapy is stopped for at least a couple of weeks until cleared by my cardiologist. The good is I have good insurance and excellent medical staff fairly locally. The cardiologist practice is rated #5 in the US. The staff at both hospitals was excellent and the food was bland but not horrible.
The lucky part was that I had just sat down to rest prior to getting in my car and leaving. Would have probably been a much different outcome if I had started driving home.

These are wonderful devices for multiple reasons. Event monitoring is one of the most important as it tells your doctor everything that happens out of the ordinary.
