A Stay on the Duluth Waterfront Part Two

February 3, 2018

You may want to read my first post on this subject "A Stay on the Duluth Waterfront (Almost).


I am sitting in a room at St Mary's/Essentia again. I had a six-day break while I was at Ecumen rehab and a less than full day at home.

This visit will tone down my effusive praise for this facility. I don't mean to denigrate the facility because the issue is really with the healthcare system. However, I can only tag the effects of the references to my stays in this hospital.
Men of a Heavyset Form Factor A few caveats for men over 280 pounds. The commodes for use at the bedside are too small. The hospital has at least one powered commode that appeared on my last day. I didn't get a chance to use it. Also, risers that fit over the top of a toilet are available but they too are a bit small for my size. You will also need a bariatric walker. Yes, the smaller aluminum ones work but you will be immensely more comfortable using the heftier one.

Introducing "Merry Christmas in Duluth" or better known as MN Nor'easter.com first edition, number one

Merry ChristmasAnother Christmas. Hmm, I wonder, Is it another Christmas? Doesn't quite feel like ones we've celebrated before. I wonder how many people are denying themselves Christmas based on the politics they share, or suffer may be a more appropriate word. 
I know. I have been there for almost a year. But, some Christmas show made this point, Bells of St Mary's I think. Change is change and we are never alone.
So How is This Story Told?So what am I doing with another blog? Well, I have to admit, I am pretty gutsy. Oh, not in that sense. Gutsy in this sense that Oh  I've got a great idea. Let's connect this blog to that domain and we' ll have ... pickled goo. I start to write a blog last year. My first topic wasn't very saleable though. Turns out the guy was a real schmuck in addition to being a dead ringer for a crook.

But that is past. With this blog, I hope to spend time sharing Duluth with the world.  Duluth is The Christmas town. I envy those parents …

A Stay on the Duluth Lakefront (Almost)

A Stay on the Lakefront (Almost) Date January 16, 2018
It has been my good fortune to spend five days at a 4-Star Bed and Breakfast in Duluth! Great Staff! Great Food! Great Results! 
OK. I will stop with the games! My stay has been at St Mary's Medical Center. It seems that the older I get the more I frequent this Duluth Landmark. 
I do not mean any slap in the face to St Luke's but I have not had the good fortune to visit their accommodations. I know several doctors in that establishment and I used to donate blood in an office there. I know the staff is excellent I just can't speak to any other classic evaluation categories. 
So what do I base my evaluation of a hospital on? I will share my judgments if you don't mind.
First I look to the staff. A well-trained staff will not be regimented. Their personalities show thru the corporate mask of 'must does and do nots' in other words they can toe the corporate line without being stiff and regimented. They are giv…
