First my oldest brother's brother-in-law passed away from cancer last week. His funeral was on Saturday. We didn't make it to the funeral because we had a doctor appointment at the same time for our trigger point injections.
Today we had our regular doctor appointments. Just before we went in for our appointments, I decided to look at my Facebook page. My other brother's sister-in-law is headed to ECMC (our "local" trauma unit) to have emergency surgery on her hand. I found our two hours later that it took an hour to get an ambulance to transport her the hour and a half trip. Then I found out what happened... she lost part of her index finger to a meat grinder at work.
I just read that she is home and doing as well as can be expected. I was scared spitless because we lost my Mom to a routine surgery in 1994, so now I freek out every time any one goes in for surgery, and it was nine hours after they said she went in before I heard any more. And that was to say she was home. Apparently they sent her home as soon as she came out of recovery and the kids didn't post anything until after they all got home.
Rick's sugar is out of control again. He is losing the feeling in his Right foot. After battling on and off open sores on his legs for a few years now, we learn it's vascular.
I of course had next to no pain today at the doctor appointment, but now I'm hurting so bad I want to cry. I'm out of my med that helps me sleep and I can't seem to think about calling that office until after hours, so I haven't had that med since Saturday.
