Medical Procedures R-US

Thursday, December 4, 2008

Well November was quite the month for us and general anesthesia. Denise got the ball rolling with having her "Wisdom Teeth" removed. She was quite the trooper and was back serving in the nursery 3 days later.

Next Anna had her tonsils removed remember that gross picture several posts back? You guessed it Anna's tonsils. She took real initiative on this one, she had us document the experience with photos, she took careful notes and kept a journal of her recovery. Why you ask? Well extra credit for science class. She made a collage, wrote a paper, and brought her teacher her tonsils (she really has figured out the way to a teacher's heart).

Lastly, the day before Thanksgiving I underwent the Cervical Facet Joint Nerve Block procedure, which required general anesthesia. My headaches are greatly improved but I feel the procedure was a real pain in the neck (literally my neck still hurts). We are not sure how long the improve headache state will last best guesses are from 3 weeks to 7 months (could be shorter could be longer who knows.) The good news the fact that it has brought relief means we are on the road (step 1 of 3) to a permanent solution.

I wouldn't want to see the medical bills- hopefully you have some great insurance. We are lucky that we do and it makes it worth staying in a not-so-fabulous work environment.
