You’ve probably seen this image on social media. Well, this week I lived it. Rick had to go into the hospital yesterday for something manageable that turned into something really serious. He has a circulation problem in his lower legs. He’s known for a while. He’s been told to put his feet up regularly. He’s been told to wear compression socks.
He’s ignored all of the advice he’s been given.
In addition to the swelling he managed to pick up a skin infection which his body hasn’t been able to clear. He’s had it before, but never this severe. Anyway, between that and the swelling he was finally uncomfortable enough to visit a doctor who promptly admitted him to the hospital to receive intravenous antibiotics.
Stubborn, or tan burro if you prefer.
This is the second time he’s been hospitalized here. The first was for a hernia operation. Let me tell you, we have no complaints about the medical system. I don’t know if it’s because we have private insurance (a requirement of our visa) or if the system is just more efficient than ours, but there has been no hassle with pre-enrollments, primary care docs or long waits for treatment. The hospital he’s in is within walking distance and serves as the Centro de Salud for our neighborhood as well.
Rick’s one of those guys who always has a joke. Some of them are pretty bad. I kind of feel sorry for the nurses!
Prayers and healing thoughts are appreciated!
Here’s this week’s featured post!
I thought this repurposed denim cropped top from Shania was really cool! I told her my cropped top day are long gone, but she reassured me I could vicariously enjoy hers! You’ll have to spend some time on this young woman’s YouTube channel. She does a lot of fun craft and easy or no sew projects.
On to the party!
