Well, Thursday came and went. The therapist meeting started off well enough.....

"How is your pain today?"

"Well enough, I'm able to move about better, I'm feeling my left leg again and walking around the building at least once a day."

"Are you taking your medication?"

I smiled. "Probably not always on time, but when the discomfort dictates I do."

"OK, We're going to do some range of motion tests. Are you comfortable with that?"

"As long as I don't have to play Twister I'm down."

"Excuse me?"

"Yes Ma'am, I am comfortable with your tests" (Rolling eyes)

Leg lifting, pelvic rotations, turn left, right, look left, right, bend over, look up, etc.

"Any discomfort?"

"Yes, but I'm OK."

Then a shiny hammer came out. It struck my lower back like a ten pound sledge hammer, making me slightly nauseous.

"Does that hurt? Did you feel that?"

I turned around and slapped the therapist in the face, smiled and asked, "did you feel that.?"

I'm still here at the facility. My appointment with a counselor is scheduled for Monday. I suppose the consensus is I am not ready to be released. Go figure...... They should be grateful I didn't get my shot with the hammer......

Yikes, Wiz.

That sucks. I'm sure you're anxious to be in the comfort of your own space, and with your critters to keep you company. At least none of them hit you with a hammer.

I'm able-bodied. If you need me to fly out there and physically lean on some of your tormentors, let me know. I'm not afraid to step on toes and poke some eyes on your behalf until you are well enough to do it yourself.

Your therapist appointment story cracked me up. At least your attitude is in the right place.

Thanks guys.....

Loren, I can poke fine. Apparently, after being assaulted by a physician, one should not 'return the favour'..... I was just caught off guard and my reaction was instinctive. My theory of human interaction is that violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.... I suppose I might be considered ethically skewed by my reaction to my health care physician.

LC, thanks for the candles and thoughts. If the general diagnosis holds true it may be quite some time before I am able to ride. As it is, feeling is returned to my left leg, but the right is still numb. Walking is like being on stilts, you throw the leg out and lean forward and thus walk. Faith is the order of the exercise. I do have a cane I have used occasionally, but only when there are drastic weather changes or I feel particularly whiney about my aches and pains on a particular day. I think it's by my front door.

AT HOME.

I just hope I don't have to suffer through another battery of PTSD tests... Hate that stuff...... Like playing a game of wits with psychs either dreaming of retirement or writing a paper.

If only I had taken my beating like a good boy I would be home now........ OK, whining over.

Like I said, it was instinct. I was about to throw up from the pain from the hammer test, and just wanted to stop being hurt. I have been seen punching my legs to get them to work right, and notes get taken..... It's like I every move I make is being monitored....

Nice folks here, and I'm sure they have my best interests at heart. They are surely going to dive me insane though...

Hope I didn't offend you in any way with my comments, Bob.

Given the humor you have maintained throughout this ordeal, I underestimated the extent and severity of your injuries.u will keep you in my prayers, sir.

Nope, no offense taken at all! I wear my shadows where they're harder to see, but they follow me everywhere. Guess that means I'm traveling towards light. I guess something you said made me remember that. I guess I'm saying thanks for that!

I do tend to understate bad news, most likely because it rarely is as bad as it seems whilst in the thick of it. Maybe it's just shock. I dunno.

No worries! Very Happy

Back in 1979 I was living in Georgia to receive the best care at the time for my fiancée. She was diagnosed with colon cancer and at that time Emory University & Hospital was the best in the country for advanced colon cancer. My fiancée needed surgery ASAP and their top surgeon took over the case.... to this day I still remember his name and will until the day I die! Dr. Angier Wills, he set up the surgery and the team of his choice, which I did some checking also and he chose only the best. On June 24th 1979 my fiancée was scheduled for surgery, we were both extremely nervous, we both just hugged for over an hour before her surgery. A terrific nurse and anesthesiologist knocked on the door where we were staying in the hospital and said " it's time for us to go to the OR ". We kissed goodbye and said " see you later ", we both cried like babies. She was and always will be " the love of my life , my soulmate " and she felt the same about me, we were also best friends. The surgery was suppose to last for tops I was told 2 to 2.5 hours. Well 4 hours passed and I was pacing for what seemed to be an eternity. I kept asking a staff member to please let me know what's going on, but still no word. Mind you at this time I had no family or friends at the hospital for support. After just over 6 hours the surgeon comes out and tells me with his right hand on my shoulder and said " I'm very sorry to have to tell you this but there was nothing WE could do for her " and just walked away from me. Well, I fell to my knees back at the room, did not know what to do next... the love of my life is gone. I had to call her parents first back on Long Island and tried to talk without having a nervous breakdown. We hung up because they both were inconsolable. Now I had to try and talk with my parents and explain the bad news. We were all grief stricken, I could no longer speak and just hung up the phone. Less then 20 minutes later a nurse comes into the room where I was and told me " it will be at least an hour or so before you can see your fiancée ". I said...excuse me, Dr Wills told me " I'm sorry there was nothing WE could do for her " and just walked away. Mind you, my fiancée was bleeding internally before the emergency surgery and we both knew the possibilities but never crossed our minds death. I still remember the nurse explaining to me..." the cancer has spread and is inoperable, therefore chemo and radiation treatments were to be discussed and now the only option. The Dr handled this situation totally inappropriately as he's done prior "! Well the first thing I had to do was call her parents and mine very quickly and explain how the Dr BOTCHED his explanation and the charge nurse was immediately writing him up for proper discipline. The nurse was warm and extremely apologetic. Now I had to gather myself quickly together and think, where is this so call doctor with no personality and totally lacking bedside manner. I went searching and asking other doctors and nurses. Well, I was finally told he's in the doctors lounge having lunch. You never saw someone run so fast. I quickly found the doctors lounge and stormed thru the doors. I was yelling profanities at him, telling his peers how he explained the outcome of the surgery he just preformed on my fiancée. The other 3 doctors sitting alongside him had that " oh my God look on their faces ". I said to Dr Wills...are you finished with lunch, he replied yes. I proceeded to tell him...stand up. So he did, and told him now take another shot at me! He said I'm very sorry, I should have explained what I meant and sat down with you. Please understand I was exhausted "!! All I said was " you were F--king exhausted and I took the biggest swing ever with my right arm and a closed fist and knocked that doctor out cold. Two of his peers applauded me and said " it's about time someone stood up to him "! Hospital security surrounded us like lightning and helped the doctor up. All the doctor said is " leave Mr Zinn be, I'm not pressing any charges ". All in all did I feel much better within my inner self afterwards.
OW, after reading what happened to you today I wanted to share an experience in my life similar to where I had to strike a healthcare provider. But, this doctor deserved more than a bitch slap! He never crossed my path again and the administrator of the hospital met with me and gave my fiancée a private room and a bed for me to sleep next to her and gave me meals also and was told " you will not be receiving any bills for this hospital stay or the surgery that was preformed nor any further treatments deemed necessary ". I never did see a bill, not even for the phone or TV. We were both treated like King and Queen. I guess the administrator thought we would file a lawsuit, my fiancée and I decided we needed no more stress or aggravation at the time.
We had exactly ten months together and everyday possible we spent it together. I lost my soulmate on March 24th 1980 at 6:13am. That day my life changed forever and I never loved another woman again.


TO THIS DAY I DO NOT TRUST DOCTORS

Wow... All I can say is you exercised a remarkable amount of restraint. I am truly sorry for your loss, not only of your love, but also for your hope of love again. Your pain runs deep. Had I a candle, I would light it for you... Sadly, this will have to suffice for the now...

Tomorrow at 10:00h I get to emotionally dance with a mental health physician. So far, everyone here has been unusually hushed, and though I was seen outside smoking a cob full of 40th anniversary by the caravan of first church baptists returning from services, there was no lecture.

Curious...... Suspect

Dear OW, My husband was sharing some of your posts. I am so very sorry that you have been injured. I hope that you continue to grow strong and that your pain remits to tolerable levels.
Sincerely,

Well, I did have a bad concussion when I was brought into the hospital. Whether or not it knocked any sense into me remains to be seen, I suppose.

Now that made me laugh Wiz, though I must say that I too thought you were joking at first. Well, I bet it wasn't the first time she's been on the receiving end and I doubt it'll be her last. Like you said, it's a human, perhaps animalistic response to being hurt.

My thoughts are with you Bob. Your injuries have made for troubling reading.

Take care of yourself fella.

Well, it seems no matter how hard I try, things tend to work out. That was only one of the many occasions on which I met my death, an experience which I don't hesitate strongly to recommend.

Ozzie, I can only suspect that your "mental health physician" is compensated largely on the basis of how many patients to which he can subscribe prescription meds, which are addictive and debilitating in nature. Or at the extreme end of the spectrum, being involuntarily committed to a "long-term rehabilitation facility" (doctor-speak for insane asylum).

And while that's the cynical view of this ol' bassard, I'm quite sure you're fully aware of the dance you're about to make. And I'm also quite sure you're more than a match for any of their devious ways.

So you're in the realm of the First Church Baptists. Snake handlers, are they? Makes me queasy just thinking about it.

Get thee outta there asap brother! As soon as you're truly able, on your terms, and abilities.



Cheers,

RR
