This & That Including What Ails

Silly Me!

on November 30, 2018

If you are reading this blogsite of mine for the first time, I fractured my little toe and foot plate some 2 weeks ago. Doc says it will take 6 weeks to 3 months for it to heal.

Well, guess what, I banged it again, against a hard stool and boy oh boy, does it hurt!

There is a saying…the more careful you try to be to protect an injured part of your limbs, all the more you will hurt it!

Ahh well, I will live. Afterall this is nothing compared to major surgeries that I have undergone.

I read that a local neurosurgeon who separated the Siamese twins has now performed surgery on a Vietnamese girl who was born with a deformed cranial, whereby a part of the brain is exposed. The brain has pushed so far out that this poor little girl has no facial features and pressure from the brain is causing her eyes to close.

The other person who is doing the next part of the surgery of reconstructing this little girl’s face is a plastic surgeon and used to live in the same building as I. Unfortunately, his wife and he had such a huge fight as each claimed the other had a lover on the side.

I remember the acrimonious fight they had and the same surgeon moved out, leaving the wife (no ex wife) and children behind.

He was particularly snooty as I remember him and he is not at all kind. He does not believe in acknowledging the presence of others and will only speak when he is paid as a doctor. I did not like him.

So, I am surprised he is chipping in. Of course they are both paid handsomely to do the job as the poor mother raised the funds for the operations.

I am disappointed that he was the chosen plastic surgeon as he is not the kindest of man and I am sure he will charge an arm and a leg. I hope the mother of the little girl has deep pockets to get continued care from him.

Perhaps the trouble he encountered with his ex wife has changed him for the better.

Perhaps he has found compassion and know how to give empathy.

I hope so, for the sake of the little girl.

    Even people who can be jerks can sometimes do good things. Let’s hope! As for your toe, sometimes it’s the little things that hurt the most and take longest to heal. Best wishes!

    Oh! I am so sorry that you hurt the second time!! For sure it was very painful!

  7. I went to do a Google search about that little girl and was appalled at the filth on the Internet. I knew it was out there “somewhere” but a search for a child born with an exposed brain should NOT bring up offers of naked children. I didn’t click on any thing, but I still felt as if I ought to go wash my hands and eyes!

    That being said, I am SO sorry for this child – and her parents. I do wonder what sort of life she will have even after the obvious problems are solved. Is she brain-damaged? What the PC folks call “mentally challenged”? Physically handicapped? Will she be whole “in mind, body, and estate”, as it says in the Book of Common Prayer?

    So – I hope you finally agree to sit down and put your foot up. How long has this been going on? That toe is *never* going to heal at this rate!

    I hope your toe heals quickly and you will be as free from pain as possible.

    Oh no, you hit it again?!? You poor thing! Plastic surgeons all seem to be that way. I hope he has changed
