It is no secret that many people are superstitious when it comes to the number 13, often called “unlucky thirteen.” Friday the 13th is such a dreaded day for some that they actually call in sick to work rather than take a chance on bad luck. But uneasiness about the number 13 may extend far beyond Friday the 13. Officially known as triskaidekaphobia (yes, I know that is a mouthful), fear of number 13 is getting quite a lot of attention from economists and others these days.

The hospital has many facilities to take care of your needs during your stay. They have an on-site laboratory, X-Ray machine, ultrasound, CAT Scanner, and MRI machine. They are in the process of adding an intensive care unit. They have been able to help my family with severe vomiting and diarrhea, sickle cell crises, and miscarriage scares. While Gilbert Hospital doesn’t have all of the equipment that a larger hospital does, they have been able to care for all of my family’s needs.

An hour later we arrived at the Plaza Hotel, which was an eight-story concrete building. It housed at least 200 Americans. The front entrance was near the busy street and was guarded by a four man Vietnamese military guard force which was protected by an effective concrete wall.

I have always had Christian beliefs and it has never been difficult for me to appreciate my surroundings and especially people in the surroundings. This was especially true in Vietnam. The Vietnamese were kind gentle people.

Question: Question whatever paraphenalia doctors order. My Mom was put in an expensive , heavy leg brace in order to try and give her stability and aid in her “walking’. It was awful. An air brace was 100% better. The same went for ordering her a hasta yatakları, an air mattress, a tray table. All three arrived broken and it was a fight to get replacements.

Also, according to some British information, there were supposed to be 13 steps leading to the hangman’s noose and tales spread about witches meeting in groups of 12, with the 13th member being the Devil himself . All of this did nothing to dispel triskaidekaphobia.

When looking for used hospital beds, be sure to check your local paper, online stores, and check with your doctor to see what you can find. Buying one new may not always be the best way to go especially if you have no insurance or the insurance company will not cover any of the cost for you. And don’t forget if you buy one used be sure to hire someone that knows how to take these beds apart and reassemble them for you. If you order online, the manufacture may even include shipping and installation for the bed for one price.
