FORCED "SLOW DOWN"

Yesterday I went to the hospital.
As a patient.

The day before I had to have blood work done.
And an EKG.

I work with these people.
I took the EKG machine and DID IT MYSELF.

The next morning:
 An IV in the foot.

Third time was a charm.
"Thanks Nicole"
I didn't cry too much.


Bilateral DeQuerVain Tendon repair.

It's really cramping my style.
But I look forward to the use of my thumbs again.

Madison Memorial is awesome.

I begged Michael to be my anesthesia guy.
I think I enjoyed the Milk of Amnesia.
Don't remember a thing.

OR crew awesome!
They protected me from that dang ER crew.
There was threats of tatoos and nail polish when I awakened.

Dr. Mills was great!
No pain today, for the first time in about 3 years!

Dinner last night from Becca who usually only fixes Lean Quisine.
She brought me real food!
Yum!

I wonder if they are going to charge me for doing my own EKG?

Love that you did your own EKG. I'm surprised you didn't do the IV, too.

Yay for a good team! I'm sure being on the other end is difficult. Hope you recover quickly!

Oh, this post scared me. I am happy to read this was fixable. Hope you heal and are in top notch shape very soon.

I see I have been missing a lot of posts from you. Since they are doing away with Google Reader I haven not used it in several weeks. I just added you to my Reader list and I hope they don't take it away so I can get updates from you. I have missed you! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my post today. Hugs

Ah, sweet girl, hope you are fixed! The fact that you are feeling relieved of pain is a good sign. Hope you have time to slow down through the holiday and mend. Sending hugs from Boise!
