Story of my Non-Healing Wound - The New Player

Posted 09-22-2014 at 05:05 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

When I ended my last post I mentioned that a "new player" was coming, he has. Dr. PS is a plastic surgeon who was asked by Dr. S to do the necessary surgery. What does that mean? This is the last, option I have of healing this wound and it will be hard.
In my post of "surgical debrediment" I wrote about the procedure, but this is going to be so much more. The PS will do a significantly larger debrediment, down to the bone again. I will stop calling the procedure a surgical...

In an age where everyone is connected at all times, and when companies like Google are coming out with devices to make us even more connected, the idea of an Internet addiction may seem ridiculous. Make no mistake, even in a world where everyone has a smartphone surgically attached to their hands, it is possible to cross the line from normal use to addiction. So how can you tell if you have a healthy love for technology, or if you have an addiction?

Story of my Non-Healing Wound - Fear

Posted 08-13-2014 at 06:28 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)
Updated 08-14-2014 at 07:29 AM by moderator2

Through out these past 20 months I have felt fear only a handful of times. Today I am feeling like something bad is coming.
The Wound Center came back with moderate MRSA,e-coli, and 2 others.

#1. Wound Center APRN has report of the culture and orders antibiotic "A".
#2. 3 days go by and Would Center Dr. W calls, discontinues antibiotic "A" and orders "B". I am allergic to this medication....

Story of my Non-Healing Wound - The Stand-Off

Posted 07-24-2014 at 07:33 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

Well here I am writing about the end, but it isn't, it is a stand-off. I have mentioned frequently about 1. Wound Nurses. 2 The surgeon and my husband. I am in the middle, how did this happen? Easy, I don't want to let anyone down.
This is such an emotional ride, up and down. As of yesterday my VNA came and measured the wound, it is not healing in the undermining. I know that because the pain is so intense. Yet at the wound center their measurements are much different, it shows that the...

A Little of Both and Neither

Welcome to my world. Today's post is a no-nonsense account of "life lived." For those of you who are just joining us, that means: "Here is what i'm thinking about," ...BTW: if you need a title to make any conversation relevant enough for you to consider, we may already not be friends, so....there's that........ wow... i lose.. i just used "btw." Sorry y'all.

Right so, I'm already filled with regret. The above sounds petulant and elitist. Let me re-phrase:...
