I so glad Kim is able to take over my PM slot when I have to take Fran to her appointments. It eases my anxiety over leaving the PMers once a week. I know it makes it easier for LB, too. Probably seems silly to some, but I'm glad the timing of things makes it possible for me to greet them before leaving.
Tomorrow we do "Hear Your Heart", in science. This time, for a change, I'm going to try using cardboard tubes instead of stethoscopes. I borrowed Nancy's set just in case it doesn't work out with the AMers. Every year, there seems to be a number of the short people whose expectations for what their heart sounds like is much different than the reality. I searched online for an audio file of a heart beat a few years ago, but didn't find any of good quality. Too bad I didn't think of that when I had the ear of the OHSU professor who wanted to make a recording of Fran's chest sounds. He would've been a good resource if he was willing to share.
