We have the absolute worst luck with doctors

September 23rd, 2008 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

We went in today so Ed could see one of the top burn specialists in Wichita.  The doctor was in the room all of five minutes and never got closer to Ed than the chair across the room.  He never examined him, never looked for infection, never asked about his pain, never asked about new […]

My universe is in a tailspin

Thank you everyone for all the emails, phone calls, and comments – I’ve passed them all on to Ed and he so appreciates them.  The swelling peaked yesterday and is now going down.  Unfortunately, this begins the healing and so the pain has arrived like a semi truck.  Burns take a while before they finish […]

So this is how Richard Pryor felt

Ed had an accident at work yesterday and caught his face on fire.  Apparently he was doing a procedure where one uses lacquer thinner for cleaning the part and then one applies a torch to said part.  Now, call me crazy, but this just does not  seem like a good idea.  He’s done it a […]

Ahhh, yes, Traci asked about decisions regarding Buck.  Well luckily, for him, I took Ed’s advice and decided to wait until my emotions cooled before thinking of his future because honestly the day he dumped me I think I could have shot him without a second thought.  However, in reflection, I gave much thought to […]

I did a bad, bad thing

Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone.  Especially my doctor. I couldn’t take it any longer and just had to get the evil half-cast thingy off my arm.  Although it’s only been five days, the contraption was driving me bonkers and I just couldn’t see the logic of immobilizing my entire freaking arm for just a pinky finger.  […]

All this trouble for a pinky finger?

September 13th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The surgeon saw me Tuesday morning and scheduled immediate surgery for the afternoon.  Thankfully the tendons were still attached to the bone fragments and he didn’t have to slice my entire palm open to locate them.  He said the nerves were still intact and he was able to re-attach the pieces.  By the afternoon I […]

Gee, how could he miss that?

My little pinky finger just hasn’t healed well at all and I could still feel bones or a dislocated joint or something so I went into my regular doctor yesterday for another round of x-rays.  As she returned to the room with her handy little laptop she began telling me that sometimes small fractures don’t […]

It’s all Ed’s fault

You know, sometimes I really love my husband and other times I’d really like to strangle him.  This weekend was one of those times.  The strangling times, I mean.  You see, he gets this idea that he’s going to clean the kitchen window for me.  Hey, that’s great and I have no complaints there!  I […]
