Mama Duck, we're thrilled to see you posting! Please let your doctor know about your experience with the wound specialist. Unacceptable attitudes, techs, and treatments should be reported, as your regular doc may want to consider referring you to someone else. You're dealing with a highly specialized area of concern and there's no room for disorganization or "attitudes". I sincerely hope your knee heals rapidly and adequately with as few visits to the wound specialist as possible. We'll have to send him "Be nice to Mary Ann" vibes!
:madd:If any of those 'chancre mechanics' don't do right by Mama Duck ... They'll have to answer to ...
ENFORCER DUCK !!
Not someone to be taken lightly. Ask the evil GloBug how powerful I is. So far, I haz brought on fleas, rats, termites, antz and moths. Still have boils, frogs, locusts, blood rain and infancide in reserve!!!!!
Oh Mary Ann, you have so much to go through, and now E.D.! I am so sorry.
Seriously, I know how important it is to have doctors you can have confidence in, and if these guys don't inspire that trust, please tell your doctor. Prayers continue that you heal up quickly, and don't suffer from boils and frogs.
Mary Ann, I just read about your accident. I am so very sorry that you had to cancel the cruise, how very disappointing.
However, there will be more cruises waiting for you. The most important issue is your health and healing.
Dear Mary Ann...don't let those Dr.'s get you down. When you get to your Primary, let him know your concerns. They need to know what happened, and how much stress it caused. I hope you have better days ahead with the medical people.
Pucci is just sensing that something isn't right, and he wants to be near you. Poor little guy...
Try to get some rest, and get well real soon...prayers and hugs...
Way to go, Mama Duck! It's a blessing to have a primary doctor you can trust that much. Glad to hear you are both happy with how the boo boo is healing, and hope you are in a better head space. Kiefer sends love and soulful looks to you and Pucci, and a big thanks to Jean for taking such good care of you.
Mary Ann, I am sorry to read that you were treated unprofessionally by the wound care doctor. There is NO justification for that. I sure wish we had you here in FL.....I know a WONDERFUL wound care center in Ft. Lauderdale that treated my 'chosen' Mom a few years back......also the result of a nasty fall. I hope there really will be no need for that service......that you heal well on your own.
I'm also sorry that Pucci is so stressed, too. Hugs and scritches as needed!
Checking in again, with my sincere thanks. I'll probably come home tomorrow - we'll see. I tried Bufferin yesterday instead of Vicodin. BAD decision. I felt like a caveman had used a club on me from head to toe. Well, I was warned I would hurt - I shouldn't have tested it! So, I'm back on Vicodin today.
Keeping up with work in the office.
Pucci was ornery and stubborn yesterday, so I had to yell at him at dinnertime. *I* felt terrible afterwards. Early this morning, he snuggled into my arms in bed, using my shoulder as a pillow, and wouldn't move - absolutely wouldn't move. Of course, I wasn't going to disturb him either. But I finally had to pick up my cell phone and telephone Jean, who was in the kitchen, to please come and pick up Pucci so I could get out of bed!!
