Thank you SO much for the well wishes and good vibes! Not only did I find much comfort in them, THEY WORKED! Not for me, but that is alright. Nae is better! We took her to the doctor Wednesday and she was released to go back to school. YAY!!! Apparently when your doctor doesn't catch something he should've you get rock star treatment and MANY apologies later. The whole office apologized to Nae and myself many times and we weren't in the office for hours. Which was nice, obviously but I still wish her doctor would have done a blood sample to check for mono when her strep test came back negative. I'm just glad that I pestered them enough times before we took her to the ER that they now know I wasn't just some over protective neurotic mother. She still needs to have an ultrasound of her spleen to make sure it's not enlarged, but that's just a precaution. That doctor won't be taking any more chances, at least with us! So good news there! I'm SO relieved! She was one SICK kid!
I went to my surgeon Tuesday and he injected me with that lovely "numb juice" right! into! my! joint! *shudder* It didn't hurt after the first "stick", but WOW did it feel WEIRD! He was hoping he could loosen us the knuckle and it would "pop" back into it's correct place. It did not *sigh* So, that means surgery is scheduled for Wednesday at 9:15am. That really sucks! I really want to get this fixed because I can't continue on like I have been for the last 3 weeks. I'm really not looking forward to the pain or recovery time.
Apparently he's going to put a screw in my knuckle (that's the part that's freaking me out) for about 3 weeks, let everything heal, then go back in and take it out. That's the plan anyway, we really aren't sure because he has never seen this type of injury before. He use to work at a Shrinner's hospital for crippled children and he has NO idea what is going on in there. I kind of feel bad for the guy. he seems just as frustrated as I am. Maybe he'll write something up in The Journal of Medicine and we'll be FAMOUS! I don't need credit for being a freak of nature, but I will take my surgery free of charge ;o) It's almost like I'm the teacher and he's the student, so in reality he should be paying ME, right? Just a thought...
In the mean time, I'm going to take it easy and do my BEST to be a better patient. Dirty is getting very frustrated with me because I'm doing too much. I try, I really do, but then I think "oh it's just stirring the noodles for a LITTLE while, not like I'm making something that needs to be stirred CONSTANTLY." So I do it, then Dirty sighs and tells me go to sit and I get very defensive. It's been less then fun here in the Mess household. But I promise to try my best to ask for help *crosses heart*
I did get my hair washed today *ahhhh* and cut. Oh that felt so nice! All I had to do was lay my head down in the sink and then my hair was magically washed and cut. Thinking about doin it every day. Not the hair cut, but the washing of my hair, FOR SURE!
Thank you again for the well wishes and the kind words, I truly appreciate it!
