JP, you never cease to amaze me with your wit, gotta lot it!!! The way it is, it coulda been turned inside out.
All is well. The incision is ugileeeeeee!!! It is still bandaged and the stitches come out next Friday. It runs nearly the entire length of my finger on the underside, not straight up and down but on an angle from one end to the other. Go figure that one. I will show a picture soon.
The surgeon said to leave the bandage on for two weeks, right....do NOT take it off, right. Only take it off it it gets wet and then go and get it redressed, right....I told him that I have a farm and the likelihood of it staying clean for two weeks was absurd, he smiled. The day following surgery I had to go to the care clinic and have it redressed. That doctor, instead of bandaging the entire hand, as the surgeon had done, simply put like a splint bandage on. Ken dresses it every night, smiling. No way on the good green earth could it go a day without new bandage. And of course, honey is my pal, it is amazing how it is healing.
The surgery was supposed to be done with a local anaesthetic. The surgeon looked at the area to be worked on and said, no freeze the entire hand. Which, encompassed an IV that was to have the local in. Thank my lucky stars the anaestheologist had already put the IV in the other hand, just in case a general anaesthetic was required. He tried and tried to get a needle into the vein on the hand to be operated on. Not....the vein kept shrivelling up he said, think he must have tried a couple of veins or something. It could only be done on the hand, in the wrist would not have worked (I feel like I am telling this tale again, dejavu?). I was attempting to do a deep relax because I was getting very stressed out with the poking and probing, actually it angry me right off. I had told them that I did not have the best veins in my hands, that is clear to see. Anyways, he had to try.
After some failed attempts he said, sorry my dear, but you have to go to sleep. Oh bother. I had slept enough the night before.
The anasetheologist (I think I am spelling it wrong, anyways my spell checker says I am, smiling) after he put the meds in the IV line in the other hand, said to me, "see you in a while", I was going to tell him that things were getting blurry, but all I remember saying was, "things are getting", that was it, naudda, smiling. Simply amazing eh?
Anyways, as you can see, I can type, yay!!! I can play!!! Yay, I am heading off to the auction today with about 50 chicken chicks, a dozen fertile Muscovy duck eggs, 5 old chickens (good soup), and a few ducklings. Should be an interesting day.
The sun is shinin', my heart is light, and I'm gonna have some fun.
We have ducks coming out our ears. Sissy is due to hatch 17 in about a week. There is about 60 more eggs in the incubator, they are due to hatch next Sunday.
In my incubator I have:
Jersey black giants
Golden laced wyandottes
And that fun begins. Have that most wonderfully beautiful day, to love and live our great lives that are so worth while to live, health. Cindi
