Interesting Work Day

So, today at work one of the older ladies who I know well was in for meds. She'd been sick over the last couple of days and only went to the doctor this morning after having a sleepless night. We learned this after she collapsed in front of our counter!! We were counting pills and waiting for her insurance to work on the computer when I saw the woman slide off the counter out front and hit the floor with a loud thump. David and I looked at each other and ran out front. He knelt and asked if she could hear him. Thank god, she responded immediately. I was ready to call 9-1-1 as I feared the worst. We helped her into a chair and she seemed alright (a scratch from her glasses scraping her temple) but on "automatic pilot" with her responses and movements. I offered to drive her home but she said she's be alright. I walked with her to her car (fortunately she was parked in front of the store--parking isn't the best in Hamburg) and she was on her way. The whole ordeal really scared the crap out of me for a few seconds.

The other interesting thing that happened today was our freezer. For whatever reason, a large freezer is in our back storage room. It's a waist high, flat-topped jobbie on which sat our old computer since July. Well, it seems that the unit had been unintenionally unplugged recently and whatever was inside from god knows when now stunk up the place. David said there was a couple inches of water and this bag of rotting...something. Before we left today we decided to refreeze the whole thing and then chip the bad stuff out when it wouldn't stink as bad (probably next week). Thank goodness the store isn't open tomorrow.
