    Yesterday I commented on the posibility of a Medical Emergency. Two years ago I stepped out of the shower and woke up in the Hospital. After an overnight in the Hospital and a battery of tests they didn’t know what happened.
    It could happen to anyone regardless of their age.
    No one can know what happened.
    The knee jerk reaction is to ban anyone over a certain age from driving but I am no where near 91.

    Ann was one of the nicest people I have ever known.
