LATEST HEALTH REPORT OCTOBER 19, 2015
Several weeks ago, our living (well, barely,) 97 year old new author was making the trek day after day to the Wound Center at Eisenhower Medical Center. She was swathed in gauze bandages on both legs, one with more than one wound; both forearms and one hand also sporting good-looking white as snow coverings. The Doctor would take one look, then count the injury sites to see if any more had popped up since the previous visit. This sort of thing did happen on occasion. She finally announced that she didn’t want to see the Patient for 2 weeks; in the meantime the Visiting Nurses group would take over the frequent bandage changes. They would be winding miles and miles of gauze all over the Patient, and Doctor would have a 2-week respite. Of course, she had plenty of old folks to take care of. Somebody is always bumping into the ground, or falling off a bar stool, or they may be trying to play the “Humpty-Dumpty” scenario.
And there is something about seeing someone take a tumble out in public. It is so ignominious for that person, but so sad for me to watch.
So here is the latest report on the condition of our Patient. This comes from the Wound Center and Traveling Nurse Outfit: The Patient is down to one pesky wound on right leg. The others are just scars reminding her to just stay on the straight and narrow…… Her outlook on life has taken a turn for the better, and the Medical Community is breathing a sigh of relief — as is The Warden.
