Q. I know two senior citizens (in their 70s) who had misadventures with surgical anesthesia. They are both rapidly losing their short-term memory. Do specific anesthesia drugs cause this in genetically susceptible individuals? Or would this result from a lack of sufficient oxygen during surgery or its aftermath?
Three years ago Kristal Cloer, along with her friend Kayli Hibbard, established Farm and Filigree as a means to further connect a friendship, grow their vision of vintage wedding settings and to serve as an outlet to exercise a life of observing the sanctity and styles of marriage.
So, I read recently that a group of car scientists got into their new invention — a car that drives itself — and headed from San Francisco to Los Angeles, or somewhere, but a respectable distance, and each took turns at the controls along the way, and it was apparently a complete and total success, or to quote one of the car scientists, “That was cool.”
This was a quiet day here on the farm, though it began with the phone ringing me out of my slumber. After making coffee I retrieved the phone message, and then heard the soft “ding” that announced a text message’s arrival on my smartphone. A blinking light let me know I had emails waiting, too. When I looked closer at the rectangular screen a locket-size circle bearing a friend’s face signaled that she had sent a Facebook message.
In April 2009, Helena Safron, a graduate student at UNC, was riding her bicycle on Dairyland Road. Behind her, Mary Council was driving her car. Council saw Safron ahead of her, so she slowed down, and then pulled into the left lane to pass Safron. While she was passing Safron at about 30 miles per hour, her passenger-side mirror struck Safron. They both stopped. Council offered Safron a ride, but Safron declined, and told Council she could leave.
Q. My 7-year-old child had not had a seizure in four years. Her epilepsy has been controlled with Keppra and the ketogenic diet. Recently, she was switched to levetiracetam, the generic form of Keppra, and now the seizures have returned. ... How can I get the pharmacy to dispense name-brand Keppra?
I’ve found myself in the predictable position of having a knee that no longer feels the need to work. It won’t open all the way. It won’t close all the way. And, I don’t blame it. It’s been through hell with me for 50-plus years, and it’s no surprise that all it wants to do now is sit around and eat bonbons all day.
When Shannon Fox and her husband Matt first viewed the property that would become their home, both agreed the serenity of the place screamed wedding-venue.
Q. I was recently prescribed tramadol for pain from a bad hip. (There is probably surgery in my future.) I ended up with hallucinations. Ghostlike people were floating along next to my shoulder.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all...well, not really one and all, since at this moment I hate whoever invented technology. Who was it? Because, seriously, I want to hunt them down — Bill Gates, that Zuckerberg guy, Al Gore? No matter, I hate them all.
Q. I have bowel movements that are so large, they clog the toilet. I am not constipated and eat my share of fruits and vegetables. This is not a big deal at home, since I have a plunger in the bathroom to deal with the plumbing problem.
