updates...etc....

Ok, we had the 'brain' appt. today and after reviewing the MRI the Dr. says the fluid buildup isn't significant enough to warrant surgery. Can i get a big ol YAY!!??!! The Dad was visibly relieved as were the Mom and I. He said to just stick with the meds he's on and that's it. For now. If his symptoms get worse then he'll review everything later. Okie-dokie.

Of course yesterday he had a wee accident at the golf course. I say wee with a snide smile. 20 stitches and 2 hours later we were home with an antibiotic and ointments and wraps. I tell ya, the fun never ends here. I thought it was interesting raising the urchins but this is waayyyy more exciting. :) It seems as though when Dad tried to get back into the gold cart he slipped, lost his balance and his left leg scraped the side of the cart. Sounds innocent enough but the Pro called me and said it was a pretty nasty cut and was fairly deep and that he "might need stitches".... Can he walk ...is he upright....is he in a lot of pain..... I ask. He said he seems ok and wsn't in a lot of pain. So I pick him up and get him to the minor emergency place. I'll try and draw you a mental picture here....I took pics but I'm not sure if I'll post them....Lovee said they were too graphic....we'll see. anyway...he's on the table, the Dr. unwraps the 'masking tape'( yea...masking tape..the club didn't have anything else ;)) from the towel, which was completely blood soaked and pulled the towel back. Well, I guess my mouth overroad my brain because 'HOLYSHIT' came flying out! I'm not sure what I imagined but that wasn't it! it's a huge V shaped gash; the skin and surrounding tissues and all ....um...jamed up...crinkled actually. Gross. No broken bones though and the muscle wan't involved. i got to watch him getting stitched up tho...that was cool!!!!
so.........
gotta go for now.....seems the Mom has hurt her eye....gotta take her to the doc now.
Let the gmes begin. Who'll win this time??? Contest you ask? It's always a contest of who'll get the most attention.
More later...I hope
We're drowning in rain here. Floods all over. I think I may quack by tomorrow...I do see some webbing growing between the toes....later.........
Anyway....

Very glad to hear that your Dad won't need surgery. Very good news. ER trips are never fun, I always love to watch the stitches or whatever. I'm not a squeamish one so blood is ok with me. I just gotta watch! Hope all is well with you. Don't know if you've seen, but I deleted my blog. I may get back to blogging someday, but it had to go by the wayside for now. Priorities, y'know?

Take care,

FMD
