Not a nice sickness. Some sick people can lie in bed quietly with their hair combed neatly. They can wear a frilly bed jacket and their hands are resting quietly on top of a smooth unwrinkled sheet. I didn't have that kind of sickness. Mine can be better described by this little jingle that my kids recited in grade school. It goes like this: "Hasten, Jason, bring the basin; Oops, slop, bring the mop." They thought this was hilarious, I don't see anything funny about it. I don't care what the Constitution says about freedom of speech. Some things are better left unsaid and unsung. My caregiver (the same one I have had for over 55 years) very kindly set up a tray by the bed and placed a bell on it. Very nice. Ring the bell. He will come. It went something like this: Ding-a-ling. I'm thirsty. I need water. Ding-a-ling. This water isn't cold. I thought everybody knew that sick people need cold water. Ding-a-ling. There's something wrong with my feet. I can't feel them. Oh, they are ice cold. Ok, put warm socks on me. Ding-a-ling. I'm still cold. There's cold air on my shoulder where the sleeve is ripping off my old flannel nightgown. Yes, I know if I would lie still I wouldn't tear off the sleeve. Yes, I know this old nightgown should have been torn up for rags long ago but I need it. It's comforting. Sick people need comfort. Just get a blanket. Ding-a-ling. Have you checked the thermostat lately? It must be 90 in here. It's not good for sick people to sweat. Oh, all right. Take the blanket off. Take my wool socks off. Yes, that is better. Ding-a-ling. My mouth is so dry. 1 need ice. In small pieces. Oh, at last. Finally, I've been waiting. I'm really to tired to ring the bell. The ice man smiles. Hey, I know that smile. I know exactly what he is thinking. Well, ok, maybe I did get a little bit demanding with the bell ringing. Sometimes I can be a little bit picky and pushy and touchy. Only when I'm sick. And does anybody realize how sick I am? We're talking industrial strength flu here. Ok, maybe I can sleep a little now. Hey, I did sleep. I feel better. Where is everybody? I stagger out to look. There is my caregiver sound asleep on the couch. He looks utterly exhausted. Why is he so tired? I'm the one who was sick. ."

The municipal health care facilities are some of the finest in the State of Minnesota. We are also privileged tO have f!ve exc@ent doct0rs and two ........ fiurse practitioners, far more than any community of like size in the pper Midwest. And with the soon to open new outpatient addition to the hospital with its new diagnostic equipment, once again Ortonville is leading the way to an even finer total medical facility. To further augment the new facility and increase usage of our medical system and facilities, another project is being planned which will further benefit the area residents. For years up to and continuing to the present, patients suffering from end stage renal disease (ESRD) and needing kidney dialysis have been and are still, traveling approximately 100 miles round trip, three days a week, for treatment. For those not familiar with dialysis, the machine providing dialysis is in effect an artificial kidney, circulating the patient's blood though a filter which removes accumulated toxins in the body. The time needed to accomplish the removal is usually three to four hours depending on the individual patient. Dialysis provides life's second chance to the patient who would otherwise die, unless he or she were the recipient of a kidney transplant. And if one is over theage of 79 in Minnesota there is no prospect for a transplant. In addition, because of the absence of donors and the increased number of applicants, the wait for eligible recipients has increased from 2 to 3 years to 5 or more. As our area's population gets older there is::;m:::increas:ii}ifimt::.O.:ii:i}ing dialysis, especially those with advanced:.diabe:esi!l;ems. :::{:::::::;{ ::::::: At the Nee!i{!me{ii{:{e{{{araii{{ir{g}i{:{iii::$tne Health Care Foundation, it :a}{a{eg{geai}{here::}s}i{{{v{iiinf:{aaiii{iae{i{aiii{siiN!}he - "" :'; area and B{I i{ igd} i{{::p..:i:.. i :w !ii!} :.t.:i .!ii iN! i{i ii{i  ii{{ Nit t . a n d pNN!ii:iN:iiiN{i!iQ}i8!!}i!i!!ii{iiiii!iiiii!!): ...... ::i:i:!iiiiii!iiiii:i!i?i!i!ii::ii!!!!iiii!i:i:i!!i!i!iiiiiiiiiiii!!!iii!iiii!i}1{iii!{ii!ii!{iii::iii:::{iiiii:}i!::ii!iiii:{ii! !i!!i!i!!i!i!i!iii{i!ii{ii!i:iii!!!!!iii!}i!iiiii)iiii!ii!i!i!;!ii!i}{i!iiiiii!ii!i}ii! < ::!iiiiol!;:!{{r....ore..eil:Nl;!. :: :::::::::::: ::> : ::   <?;:::: <:: :::::::::  ;:% ::: ................... ..con:.t..r:tN::onswll ieiietd::::   :::::::::>::::<\>: :: ::::::: i:: :::::::::: by :":eg :t u.n.da..a.:::::::::::i.:::::::::.:::::::::::::::::::::::::::.initdi::!!!:me:iiasi::::i:::!ii..: ::::: which time such contribu{:[8::::all :!:aetiao::g:c:8::8vilil::i:8{ii::{!if:{i!:ii ::::: purchase of the dialysis equipment.
