Hump Day

Is today Wednesday? I can't seem to keep up with what day of the week it is anymore. I went to my dr's office Monday for a followup. He was not pleased at the hole in my head. In fact, he cursed. Dr. Turnbo never ever curses but he did. He looked at it and said it was unacceptable. Those words were like music to my ears. It made me feel validated. For the past couple of weeks I have felt like a big ole baby for reacting to this open wound and finally, finally someone else agrees with me.

He is sending me to the Wound Care Center. He wanted me to go asap but my appointment isn't until 3/17. His nurse, Edie, put some Intrasite Gel on it and gave me the rest of it. We have been able to continue using the gel but I am about out so I called Edie to see what I needed to do until my appt. next week. She is supposed to call me back today and let me know. I feel that he will have me continue using it and I can pick up some at his office after work.

It really is incredible to think that a cyst that I thought was an ingrown hair has caused so much interruption in my life. I know that it could be worse, that's for sure, but it sure is a hassle. Every morning I have to get Joe up to 'take care' of it. I hate that. I hate having to depend on someone else really for anything. I feel that as I get older I will have to get over that huh?

Well, that is good news, to know Dr Turmbo wants it taken care of, too.

Asking for help and getting help can be a tough process, but in the long run it will work in your favor, Gil. LOL!

Put on your "gracious & grateful face" each morning for Joe.

Oh you guys should hear me. I have gotten better since my visit w/Dr Turnbo but before that I was awful. I was a bitch and had to say I was sorry at least once per day. Poor Joe.

I have a hole in my head, but the doctor says he can do nothing about it!

Interruption? Yes my dear it's an 'interruption'. It's a freaking hole in your head, for the love of God whine all you want babe, you're entitled! I mean if they can cut open my head, play in my gray matter, and close it all up nicely with a 6 inch scar they should very dang well be able to competantly take a cyst off the back of your head with out leaving an ongoing gaping hole. Really now, they didn't even use stitches in mine, they just super glued it all back together, no lie. Helluva lot of super glue for that size incision but come on, yours should not even be in the same league right?
No excuses, you're doctor is right, it's unacceptable.

Getting older is not for wimps - so the saying goes - and it's true.

Make Joe work - it's good for him.
