The Day After

This is the second time I've awakened. For once I was right. Across my shoulder, especially the right rise, right arm, 2 fingers on the left hand and a right thumb. ribs,  neck, leg. Pretty much anything on the right side. Plus a major headache that makes yesterdays headache look good. I just took 3 Ibuprofen. I think I'll lay back down again.

Oh Anthony, I'm so sorry this happened to you. You've been through enough already.

I'm thinking you should go to Lakeway next time. They aren't as busy and you will be taken care of. If you go, text me, so I can give a heads up to some people; and if you need admitted you can list me as your primary care and I'll be there. UGH...how frustrated you must be.

p.s. I think you need your neck xrayed. Seriously. With all the meds you have been on, your bones are likely fragile and if your neck happened to have a fracture in it, things could get much worse.

Thanks Andi. Seems sometimes I hit these days.

Kim, I may yet be going and I told Denise next time to bring me to Lakeway.

Covenant Healthcare called me today for a satisfaction survey. I told them to hire some doctors. It sounded like a party in the background. I have had a massive headache ever since. I already have 2 bulging discs, C2 and I think C5. My right shoulder is pretty wiped too. The Silver Dollar size missing skin on my shin is overshadowed by the headache, shoulder, elbow, and a few other fingers now swelled. The one that was turned sideways I've had to reset a few times today, and it is budging and black. Most of the fingers are on the left hand where I was holding the handrail. If I don't get any better I will come there and ask for you and tell you in advance I'm headed that way.

Here is the funny part. We were the only ones at the E.R. It wasn't like they were busy, now I think I know why.

Yikes! Poor Anthony. Please go see a different doctor...or at least the vet at White Pines.

I think I'm going to have to. Migraine all day today and a huge knot on my spine at the base. I'm swelled all over and my ring finger is Patriotic, Red, White, & Blue, but it bends a little. :) I haven't done much today so I haven't had to set it again except once. The handrail mark is on my left arm so I probably had a death grip on it, also explains the swelling of my whole left hand. I had C2,5,6 messed up but one healed since my shoulder injury. I'm not so sure I didn't crack it, but what could they do for that? Years ago they wanted to fuse 2 together and I turned them down, still don't want it. Tonight the Migraine is finally gone, used Excedrin Migraine to help with it. Denise has tried to pop it a couple of times, no success.

Do not "pop" anything! Except pop your butt in car and come to lake way today...

anthony7 said...

It won't pop. So I took your advice and popped my butt in the car. :)
