With all young children come injuries.  Sometimes they are the little bumps and bruises resulting  from a simple trip and fall that can be cured with a quick peck to the offended area and an “all better”.  Other times, they are a little more drastic and hospital visits with stitches or casts maybe in order.

My health has not been great since 10th grade when I passed out at a hall meeting. I saw nine different doctors, missed six weeks of school, and learned pretty much nothing about my health. I did have an enlightening CAT scan and a test to monitor my brain waves. We found out that the […]

Emotional Chaos Builds Character???

I feel quite well.  I do.  I have no pain.  The Dermabond has fallen off and my incisions are healing quite nicely.  I am able to move without discomfort or limitations…but I don’t. This could very well be the sort of feeling that makes me overdo everything, but the wisdom (what little I have of […]

Just Kept Walking

It rained all last Monday night and I was curious as to whether or not Tuesday weather would lend itself to walking.  As it turned out, the space between rain drops was large, so Sally and I “suited up” and trekked on down to Sailor Bar.  Because it had been raining, very few folks were […]

[ad_1] Sehr geehrter Herr Dr. Roach, Ich bin eine 74-jährige Frau und möchte in einem der örtlichen Krankenhäuser freiwillig arbeiten. Meine Blutuntersuchung ergab, dass ich eine Immunität gegen Masern, Deutsche Masern und Windpocken habe, nicht jedoch gegen Mumps.

Dear Doctor. Roach, I am a 74-year-old woman and would like to volunteer at one of the local hospitals. My blood test showed that I have immunity to measles, German measles and chickenpox, but not to mumps.

You Are Here

Having a chemotherapy port (also called a port-a-cath) means living with a little plastic box stuck inside your chest just below your collarbone, with a catheter that goes almost all the way into your heart. Sometimes you forget it’s there, and other times it’s really bothersome. Mine pinches when I try to sleep on that […]

The face lift cosmetic procedure is the fifth most popular plastic surgery procedure performed each year with the majority of patients being women obviously, which is understandable since women are judged on appearance more than men. There are many different types of face lift procedures and almost all types work. While this cosmetic procedure is […]

From Strong Roots.....

Now for a brief run down of the non-clothing items I packed for Mexico. We stayed this time in a VRBO which means that I packed a bit differently than I would for a resort based vacation.  The main advantage of a VRBO is that you have a kitchen.  We generally like to eat breakfast […]

Well, If you are here reading this, then you’re either one of my curious followers or just simply searching for weight-loss things/tips/tricks. But the truth is, there are no tricks to weight-loss. Yes, I had weight-loss surgery back in August 2018, but it was anything but easy. I guess I’ll start from the beginning and […]

Bye Bye Boobies

Day 2: Slept ok. Still have some bleeding along incisions. Glad but scared that mesh tape wasnt used to close the incisions. Interlocking sutures inside and dermabond glue outside. Of course as soon as we got home from the hospital I jumped out of the car and dry heaved for about 5 mins and bled […]

Today I went back to the surgeon for my follow up visit. I’ve been improving daily, but every time I have an outing, like to my primary care doctor last Friday, or lunch with Ian and his dad Wednesday, I’ve been paying for it with excessive pain later that day and most of the next. […]
