What's going on?

Things haven't been going well health wise at work lately. It's like an odd cloud hanging over us.

Not only did we lose B a few days ago (see previous post) after an accident on the weekend, but I found out that one of the guys in my team was taken to hospital yesterday with chest pains. Apparently he's still in hospital but they don't know what the problem is (so presumably not a heart attack?). As it is, another of the guys in my team will be back in a week or so after having a minor heart attack - he also felt chest pains at work, but went home (then later to hospital where they told him he was having a heart attack).

I found out B's wife has lots of family helping her out. Apparently both she and B come from large families and with their help she's doing as well as can be expected. Though considering it's their son's first birthday today, it can't be easy. I have to admit I get choked up whenever I think about that.

I think I need something to lighten the mood... look out for my next post.

Yikes! Bike crashes, heart attacks; my recommendation to you is find another place to work - quick!! Meanwhile don't stand under any heavy light fixtures.

A lot of women are turning up pregnant where Mrs. Phos works, I told her she needs to get the hell out of there now.

It really does come in waves, I think. :( How sad.
