Subject: BS: My Wife's Having Brain Surgery Tommorow
From: Rapparee
Date: 04 Sep 14 - 11:27 PM

Yesterday my wife Pat left a session of deep-tissue massage and was bashed by a bicyclist barreling along at (another cyclist estimated) ten to fifteen mph -- on the sidewalk. The therapist's husband was called -- he's an EMT -- and eventually seven deputy sheriffs and six EMTs were gathered round. The question was asked, "Do you want to be transported to the hospital?" was answered with my very firm "YES!"

I beat the ambulance there.

Contusions, bruises, minor skin scratches, a badly sprained left wrist...and a left-side subdural hematoma (spelled differently in the UK). Headaches, vomiting, and the last of the Big Three she does NOT want: seizures.

Cranial surgery is tomorrow. Prayers would be nice and if you don't pray waft healing thoughts her way if you get a chance. 5 to 14 days postop in the horsespittle and a could of months layed up laying about.

This blows our plans to attend a family reunion and our nephew's wedding.

Gracias a ustedes.

The sooner the surgery, the better. Excellent call to take her to the hospital. I've seen this up close and personal with my friend Susan - who I am happy to say - is just about 100%. At least her friends and family think so. It can take a while, a lot depending on the injuries, but you keep healing, it's not like after X amount of time that's all you'll get.

My best to both you and Pat.

Maggie

Got a message when I tried to post a little earlier, Rap, that Max had taken Mudcat off-line so posted a pm to facebook, Mike. Won't repeat it all here other than to say holding Pat and you in my thoughts.

You two have not had an easy ride these past few years. May the road ahead get much smoother.

My great-nephew suffered a subdural hematoma (s.h.) during a difficult birth. His surgery went smoothly. I'm hoping Pat's does too. Knowing that doctors have dealt with many s.h's gives me hope.

Surgery went well, but I've been sitting in the ICU waiting room for a couple of hours because herbblood pressure is way too high. They're IVing some BP medicine that will bring it down.

Well I wasn't going to be able to make Getaway anyway....

I have sympathy with the idea of bicyclists who want a cheap form of transportation that's non-polluting, but—!!

A few years ago when I was still driving, I damn near got one when the light turned green and I started to move. He shot the red light and I just about clipped his rear wheel.

In front of a convenience store near where I live (I roam the nearby neighborhood in an electric wheelchair and I am a very careful driver, especially when I have to travel on the sidewalk with regular pedestrians), I have seen little old ladies with shopping bags, children with popsicles in their hands, suited businessmen opening a fresh pack of cigarettes while emerging from the store knocked flat by cretins on bicycles. And the cyclist beats a hasty retreat. He knows his ass is grass if he stays around long enough to see if the person is injured.

Seattle is an excellent city for curb-ramps, intended for wheelchair users and mothers pushing strollers, but I have been roundly sworn at by cretins on bicycles—and teenaged dimwits on skateboards—for being on a curb-ramp and interrupting their careen down a sidewalk among normal humans. They seem to be under the impression that the city put them there for their exclusive use.

Almost as bad are people wandering briskly down the sidewalk engrossed in a cell-phone conversation—or texting.

Sorry! But I get steamed sometimes.

Rap, my best wished to you and yours and I'm praying for a speedy recovery.

Don Firth

She's in the ICU and with the bandages on her head looks like a human Q-tip. She was sleeping (under the influence of morphine) when I left...not for long, as they have to "check her neurals" ever hour or two.

I saw my mother through 3 hip replacements. (The second one didn't work.) A mastectomy and the removal of a malignancy on her lungs. I've been through that particular kind of hell more than once, and so I said a prayer for you too. I hope everything is good. I hope you have a lot of friends to back you up. I hope your wife recovers, though it usually takes a while to get over major surgery, and the brain is kind of a biggy, unless you're a politician.

I will add that I think it should be illegal to feed hospital food to sick people. One should also be able to stick that woman who keeps taking blood samples with something sharp.

Boggles the mind that, there were so many paraprofessionals standing around asking a person with those injuries and a head injury to boot if she want to go to hospital?

Hope the sheriff's department investigates and throws the book at that cyclist. They'd do it in the UK. No cycling permitted on pavements (sidewalks) per the highway code.

Hope she heals quickly with no lasting bad effects. Take care of yourself too, Rap.    No good to her, if you make yourself ill with exhaustion and worry.

here in the states, going to a hospital is strictly voluntary if you are not unconscious or in some form of custody. And why you can check yourself out against medical advice.   

so when Reagan threw out patients from mental hospitals, they couldn't generally be compelled to return later... they got to live in the streets and "upset" their "neighbors". street people don't usually have long lifespans... at least not here in the north where winters are fatal.
