Larry Griffin is a very popular guy at the clinic. When he arrives at about 9:00 am to get to his chair, the whole place seems to come to life. Conversational chatter increases, greetings abound and jokes would start flying back and forth across the unit.


Surviving a session at the Clinic is a little bit more than just staying alive. You got to be able to deftly handle your life, health and ‘technical requirements’. We come into the clinic weighing over our ‘dry weight’ and sometimes short of breath, so you can’t wait to get that weight off of you.


When taking about the clinic staff, even if you know you’re right, remember to do it very quietly or you’ll incur the Wrath of Shawn (Risa’s buddy and co-enforcer). I found out again that Shawn is a force to be reckoned with.
