OOPS - A Little Mix Up - Tuesday, December 2, 2014
I will eventually get back to updating our travels, but today Bill was scheduled to have a procedure performed on his right hand. His right pinky finger has contracted and is now beginning to make it difficult to do a few things.
There is actually a name for this condition: Dupuytren's Contracture.
"Dupuytren's (du-pwe-TRANZ) contracture is a hand deformity that usually develops slowly, over years. Dupuytren's contracture affects a layer of tissue that lies under the skin of your palm. Knots of tissue form under the skin — eventually forming a thick cord that can pull one or more of your fingers into a bent position." Mayo Clinic
Today, Bill was scheduled to get a shot into the affected area which would begin to dissolve the thick cord. Then in two days he would return and the Doctor would manipulate the hand to begin to straighten the finger.
We arrived and were taken to one of the exam rooms.
For a change, I get to sit in the comfortable chairs :o)
It's Bill's turn to sit on the TABLE ;o)
Sit on the table is all he got to do.
Unfortunately, there was a mix-up and his medicine was not ordered. The medicine cost $3000 and they will not order it until you call and confirm that you will be coming.
Needless to say, Bill did that but somehow it didn't get ordered:o((
SOOOOOO...... no shot today.
The medicine was ordered today and he is rescheduled to have the shot on Thursday.
We will let you know when Bill gets shot ;o))
