Welcome to my episode of Friday Fragments. If you would like to star in your own episode check out the plan here and be sure to say hello to the lovely host Mrs.4444…
Scary Rant: I had a second surgery of 3 to repair and remove some damaged bone (jaw) on 12/12/12. It went very well. It wasn’t nearly as painful as I thought it would be. Anyway 2 weeks ago I woke up feeling horrible. I took some advil and went about my day. The next morning my throat hurt and I had a bad headache and a fever. At 9:15 a.m.I called my doctors office and requested an antibiotic. At 4:30 his P.A. called me and said “We are not giving antibiotics until you have had symptoms for 7 days. I suggest you use something over the counter.” I said “ I seriously think I better come in because that advice is not good for me.” She said “You need to wait 7 days first.” I LOVE my doctor but this made me so mad. I cannot take over the counter meds. (high blood pressure and epilepsy) Anyway the next day lets just say I was sick. My husband called the docs office and said I am bringing my wife in. They put me in with the nurse practitioner, who I do like. She examines me and tells me I need to immediately, go to the emergency room. I did and it turned out I have an infection(in my glands) resulting from my surgery and if I had waited 7 days I would have been dead. That was SO scary and I am SO angry. I intend to bring this up with my doctor and will sadly most likely be looking for a new one. Sorry long fragment but jeeze you MUST be your own best health advocate these days. Have you ever had a close call like this?
My lil peanut granddaughter Avery Paige turns 7 on January 11th. Here she is just a few years ago…I loved this day!!!
How the heck do you get dogs to stop barking at every little thing?? I have tried everything, I think, except those zapping collars. Do they work??
I am thrilled that a book written by a Philadelphia area author (Matthew Quick) was made into a movie (Silver Linings Playbook), filmed in Philadelphia and the burbs (my area:) and stars a Philadelphia actor (Bradley Cooper)has been nominated for 8 Oscars. I am also excited that next week a review I have written for the book and movie will appear on the blog of someone I am a huge fan of….
I am trying to think of something different for my facebook author page. It is a boring page. But it would be nice if you liked it…any suggestions??
I am looking for a jewelry crafter that works with resin. Do you know someone??
