MEDICAL THURSDAY- AKA--- DO GOODER DAY!
I DIDN'T KILL ANYONE !
WELL......AT LEAST THEY ALL SURVIVED THE INITIAL VISIT TODAY!!!
I may start a Post Schedule, like many do for certain days.....but I definitely would like to share Positive Stories from our Medical Services, as we get established. I would journal them anyway--and that is what this is-- my on-line journal. It's hard for me to make and stick to a - (
any plan! sometimes- but I may try it! Of Course due to HIPPA laws, a lot will be changed to protect the patient--but not the gist or intent of the story!
No pictures , that day!
UNLESS I SEE SOMEONE WITH A KILLER BOIL !!!!!!!! (& we pop it!!!)
This is so NOT about Me, Us, or what we are doing, (- but I would like to Post the positives; from recipients of this care!) These folks are a humble, strong, spirited , proud group of people, below poverty level. Most of them are reticent to even take, or seek help! I'm sure we have all been, if not are, still one step away from these problems ourselves!
We also will serve as Gatekeepers to help them navigate into a system they literally know nothing about. Some are hard pressed to go about the ADL's (Activities of Daily Living) , in medicalese.
As you can see our Black Berries are coming into season. There are several patches on the walk to the mailbox- and if I play my cards right- (WHY DO WE SAY THAT TOO?- as if I can't get them, unless I win a Poker game?)
But as I was saying before my mind so rudely interrupted my self- I will be able to get probably well over a 2-3 Gallon's- of free, fresh, ready to eat Blackberries over the season.....plenty enough for a Pie- (Probably several, but they are soooo hard to resist, Fresh picked, and just popped into the Pie Hole immediately!--
Love to all- and again I really 'preciate all your Well wishes and Condolences, they will be passed to the family tonight.
