Brandy and I walked out of our home today and saw the wonderful and serene sight of a rainbow. It really started my day off on a positive note.
Doc Altman. This gentleman set my thumb in the ER and did my pre op this morning.
I went to my pre-op appt today with the doc that treated me on Wednesday night. We went over my vital signs, a questioaire and the risks involved. I signed my consent and I was sent on my way. I guess I'm healthy base on the blood pressure. Of course they put the cuff on as soon as you sit down from walking in from the waiting room. My pulse seems high.
I don't think it takes an experienced medical professional to see the difference between the first (bad) x-ray and the second (better).
My doc says I will be operated on by the best hand surgeon in the Southern Cal Kaiser network. I think they HAVE to say that. Imagine my discomfort after being told that I will be put under the knife of the worst hand surgeon in the network
THE REST OF THE SET IS AVAILABLE HERE . MAKE SURE YOU GO TO THE LARGER SIZES OF THE RAINBOW AND THE X-RAYS (IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE).
