Or, as I like to think of it.
Went Ortho doc so he could scrutinize the xrays of my MASSIVE injury. It is indeed broken (proof in the x-ray) and he says in order for it to heal in the proper way I shall have minor outpatient surgery to yank the finger back in place and then put a couple of pins in to stablize the area,
And, yes, he used the word "yank".
Apparently my arm will be numbed, but I shall be awake so I may assist in the process, I suppose.
Do the pins qualify me and my hand for Pinterest?
They put a "better" (read: rigid and more cumbersome) splint on today to protect my digit from further harm until the surgery, All I know is now it is harder to type.
Whine, whine, whine, whine.
It is excellent, I am appreciative.
I am to go to my "family doc" to get all sorts of tests for clearance. Oh, you mean the lady I went to about a month ago? Thank goodness I had already "broken" a new doc in and told her all my "problems". Fortunately I was to see her tomorrow to follow up on blood work and ask her to please help me breathe better - my asthma is behaving badly. Maybe it needs a splint too.
So that's the plan! And since Stan rhymes with plan I'm going to show you the pictures I finally received of him chatting up some new friends at the dog park.
See him in the red collar?
Who knew he could actually look small?
Thanks for all the tea and sympathy, I appreciate it very much.
Actually I've been thinking how I might work this all to my advantage... I'm on a waiting list to be on the red carpet at the Oscar's Sunday. If I get to go I shall wield whatever contraption I have on after surgery and garner sympathy from passing celebs. I only have one target in mind, Mr. Bradley Cooper. Surely he will sign my pathetic "whatever I will be wearing" and then be overcome with sadness that I must stand out there in that condition. (I know, I know, dream sequence stuff) He will insist that I join him and his mother inside and then kick someone out of their seat so I may be more comfortable. (End dream sequence)
Think I can pull that off?
