Brazil Buzz by Mary Lou Sartor
Paul received his shots at Richard Roudabush Medical Center at the pain clinic. After the long-awaited injections, he has relief now. My husband was not off and running, although he was grinning from ear to ear when he left the office.
The handle of the cane will miss his tight grip until the pain returns, as it always does.
Yesterday we were back at the hospital again for his flu shot, a quick drive-through, and a free mask.
I can not speak for every veteran; however, Paul and I and our family praise how the VA has handled his concerns since 2001. We are grateful to the dedicated doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other hospital workers for the quality care he has received as an in-patient and out-patient.
Tomorrow I will see my health care provider Dr. Elizabeth Wright, at Hendricks County Hospital.
My last visit with her was November 7, 2019. For a few months during the present pandemic, we were quarantined, and more the hospital limited patient visits, unless in emergencies.
I hope nothing new with me is about. I won’t say that I am fit as a fiddle, although, at almost 81, this old girl can’t complain!
Now, if her assistant asks me to draw a clock or count backward and questions galore again, my blood pressure might rise out of control.
Another thing is those scales. I’ve been quarantined watching a lot of Dr. Phil, westerns, and making a lot of homemade breads and good eats. She would not buy her scales lie.
Maybe nothing of the above will occur, and she will say,” Everything is fine! I will see you again in six months. I faxed your new nerve medicine and will call you about the labs. Practice drawing the face of your clock...
Could be, I should try to get a good night’s sleep. If I stagger into her office, she might think this dizzy blonde might have a hangover, and I don’t drink.
I’ll just tell you I was studying the face of the clock by flashlight until the wee hours of the morning.
Other than that, I can’t explain what happened to this well-weathered mug nor of the rest of me.
