Story of my Wound - Accomplishment - Knitting

Posted 12-11-2014 at 05:00 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

What an odd title, what does it mean? For me knitting gives me pleasure, a sense of worth, a goal, and then accomplishment.

I have been knitting for almost 40 years and in that time I have had my own business, designed endless Christmas stockings, knit for others, and then finally for me.

I quickly learned from my PD waiting room that so many people are defined by their pain or condition. I decided that wasn't for me. I had to have something that would give me a sense...

Story of my Non - Healing Wound The Fight Part 3

Posted 12-05-2014 at 08:59 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

All looked well and was well until the APRN fell and severely fractured her wrist. She needed surgery and would be out for 8 weeks. What was I to do? It was no use being angry. There were decisions to be made.
I had 3 choices.
Stay where I was with modifications
Go to a hospital near by but there reputation was poor.
Go to a big city, a hour drive at least. They had a different Hyperbaric Chamber. Room size, it could accommodate several people. I would only have to go...

Story of My Non-Healing Wound The Fight Part2

Posted 12-05-2014 at 06:39 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

I have to amend Part 1 which I wrote " my husband objects to what Dr. W writes that I ask to be dismissed. Dr.W does delete that and writes something else. He looks at my husband who reads that entry and agrees."

My husband and I proceed to go and talk with the manager. She is a wonderful, caring woman. We tell her what just transpired ending with "my most unpleasant person". She immediately tells me that I am not an unpleasant person. She promises to talk with...

Story of My Non-Healing Wound - The Fight Part 1

Posted 12-03-2014 at 10:25 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

I am going to step out of The Beginning and bring us up to December 2013. It is almost a year to the day that a meeting scheduled went from bad to worst. It is a long story and best started with background information.
Strike - the nurses from the hospital went on a 3 day strike. They were locked out on the 4th day and continued to be locked out for just shy of a month. This is the holiday season, and emotions run high. This is important because it has strong implications for me.

Story of My Wound - The Bahamas

Posted 11-28-2014 at 05:36 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

I have a wound that is big enough to put my index finger in it. I was frightened to feel how deep it was. So I have a wound, I am scared so I decided to see my sister. She is an RN and I trust her completely. I will let her look at it but that means I must pull down my pants and panties. Oh I am embarrassed, but I have to know what I am dealing with.
She looks at it and gives me good news of sorts. It is the size of a dime, but not too deep. There is no sign of infection. Thank God.
