Well this week was pretty similar to last week. I had to get my toenail
cut again, so I only left the apartment to work one day. I had the craziest
experience when I went to get my nail cut. The (old man) doctor that
usually cuts my toes wasn`t there, so we talked to another guy who told
me that I had to come back the next day for `surgery`.
We went back to
the clinic on Friday and I went to the surgery room. I had to leave my comp
to go to a separate room where I had to strip down and put on a
hospital gown and wait in a big blue chair until a nurse came and put an
IV in my hand!!! After waiting even longer, they put me in a wheel
chair and carted me off to the operating room. We got to the OR and I had to
move from the wheel chair to the operating table. During that
process a lot of people saw my butt.
Once on the table they hooked me up
to a heart monitoring machine, put the finger heart monitor device on, and then put
another thing on my right arm to test my blood pressure. While they
were doing that, there were two other nurses that were washing my leg
and foot. To top it all off, they put an oxygen mask on my face!
Yes, all of this happened just for an ingrown toenail.
They finished with the anesthesia and then cut the nail. I thought
that everything was over at that point, but no.... I was carted off to another sick- people room where I had to wait for another 30 minutes. Oh and by the
way, all of these rooms were extremely cold! So there I was just chilling in
my wheel chair, freezing to death, losing the feeling in my hands, listening
to people groan / cry. It was awful! After what seemed like forever, they let me go
change and then we left the hospital. I have never been so happy to be out in the
This week we have a
Zone Conference and I`m going to receive a package and some letters!!!!
I`ll let you know what I get next week!
love you all! Abrazos y Besos!
