Patient: ‘Doctor, my hair keeps falling out. Have you got anything to keep it in?’
Doctor: ‘What about a cardboard box?’
No walking today as we have to head for the hand surgeon. While expecting the operation, the doctor really wanted to do a consultation meaning he wanted to see the hand, explore possibilities, and explain what could happen. In a nutshell he said the area is large in an area that gets a lot of skin motion. If he has to take out a large area, he might not be able to close it up so he wants the doctor next door, a plastic surgeon, to be available to do a skin graft from another location in order to close the wound. Also, it seems the stitches will be in two weeks and not extreme hand motion/movement for a month…i.e., no gardening, golf, or dancing using the right hand. Back to see him on the 24th!
We returned home disappointed but happy we know more and that the two surgeons will be on duty and available. Paul headed for the yard to assure the little plants have water since it is still hot out. We watched some TV in the comfort of our 78 degree home before going to Melany’s (Malarkey’s) for our Monday night meeting with Irene.
While sitting there solving the problems of the world, guess who showed up?
Did You Know? A blimp typically flies about 1,500 feet above the ground. Compare that with New York’s Chrysler building, which towers about 1,050 feet high. And another thing: Goodyear’s blimps move … very … slowly. They max out at about 53 mph but usually they cruise at a conservative 35 mph.
It was fun to watch him slowly move across the sky…we think he was going up and down the shoreline watching the people on the beach.
After solving the problems of the world, we headed home. BTW, good choice Mr. President…someone who will read the Constitution, right on!
