One year ago today I had my warning for giving a med to the wrong patient.
One year ago today Kimm was going to meet with the neurosurgeon in the morning and then find out that she needed immediate surgery for the pinched nerve in her neck.
One year goes by fast.
Regarding my warning…one thing I have changed in my practice is to ALWAYS ask for name and date of birth and ALWAYS document at the bedside. So that is a good thing.
Regarding Kimm’s surgery…she still has problems with her legs/feet (numb/no feeling). She truly feels that it is her LOWER back, not anything to do with the operated pinched nerve in her neck. She will be having an appointment with her PCP coming up and asking again for a lower back MRI (a repeat one had been refused by her insurance). So we shall see…hopefully something can be done.
Anyways, back to the present. Again, hard to believe that three days off goes by so fast. Today was mainly spent working on finances, dying my hair (hate that gray!), and then I went to the library and store this afternoon.
Regular stuff like making meals, doing dishes, and taking a walk made up the rest of the day.
And now I’m working on catching up on writing blogs!
Plan is to watch the 4th Harry Potter movie tonight while Kimm watches Little League baseball (which started today).
