Ben just finished with today's re-check appointment on his thumb. You may recall, if you read last night's post, that I delegated this little excursion to my Personal Accountant, who reports the following:
Dr. S. unwrapped and checked the thumb. Suspecting it is not sufficiently drained, he opened it up again, which required the same procedure that occurred on Wednesday. So, I'm feeling pretty glad that I was not in the treatment room again with the long-suffering Ben.
However, this time, the doctor did the anesthetizing and, according to Ben, did a Much Better Job than D., the physicians'assistant. Which the doctor apparentlytook some pleasure in reporting to the underappreciated PA. This probably had something to do with the fact that the thumb had already been lanced for the first time already.
I am still suspecting that the bouncing blood sugars may have something to do with this not clearing up as quickly as we had hoped...so will probably make another call inquiring about that.
In the meantime, Cecily and I are working on drawing 'tres gatos' (3 cats), 'siete osos'(7 bears), and 'dos vacas' (2 cows)....for Spanish homework....which is WAY more fun than being John and having to convert fractions to decimals to percentages for no good earthly reason!!!
