  1. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Saw the folks at the pain center yesterday. Found out they only did injections on my right side during my last transforaminal procedure. That explains why my left side of my back is starting to hurt again - it was just getting carryover from the steroids on the right. Well, that's getting taken care of soon. I'm getting a set of transforaminal injections on my left side. I hope it carries over to my right, because that's starting to hurt again. They've got to clear it with my insurance first, but I'm guessing sometime within the next three months.

    Getting ready to have grits. The rice cooker is merrily cooking away and should yield a pot of grits in about 15 minutes or so.
  3. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Good lord! I've had a big toenail removed without the numbing spray, but of course without the frostbite and without the matching toenail removed. Not something I'd want to live through.
  4. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Personal experience? I hope not. I got my first good post-op look at the toe. Gah. It looks like ground beef smothered in Betadine. Brenda did post-op care. I've still got to keep an ortho shoe on, lest I suffer bumps and accompanying pain.
  5. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    The toenail problem is gone. As in really gone. The podiatrist surgically removed my toenail yesterday. It was out of control. I mean, the thing looked like an alien had invaded my foot after he removed it. He went one step further and cauterized the nail bed with carboxylic acid so that it will never grow back. He also gave me a gizmo called a "crest" something to wear under my hammertoe to keep it from causing problems. So, $8 for the gizmo, $150 for the surgery. At least it didn't hurt at all—not even the pain killer injection. He used a numbing spray as he was injecting, which when combined with my oxycodone probably did the trick. The weird part is that I didn't even bleed during any part of the surgery. Now I have to soak my foot in a water/vinegar mix for 2 weeks, put Silvadene antibiotic cream on it. and go back in 2 weeks for a follow-up. Could be worse.
  6. The Album, and Other Music

    The album cover is done, but we're having trouble coming up with other artwork that conforms to the printer's templates. As in, the person I'm working with doesn't know how to work with templates and can't easily do CMYK. If I use Disc Makers' own service, they will credit me $100 for already having the cover, but that's it. They want $350 for the rest, which is a rip-off for plain black text on a white background. Does anyone know a graphic designer who will do the inner liner, back cover, and CD art for reasonable rates? It's just text using a Microsoft font against a white BG, rendered in 300 dpi CMYK. I can even supply templates. A copy of Photoshop is probably preferred. Help?

    Do you like Julia Child's eggs or Jacques Pepin's eggs? I'm a Pepin-ite myself. Hot and custardy, with salt and pepper.
  8. What Are You Ingesting?

    No problem. They're becoming far too common nowadays. It's easy for something like this to slip through.
  9. What Are You Ingesting?

    Sensitive topic, considering what happened in Florida yesterday. Sorry.
  10. What Are You Ingesting?

    Taco Cabana's Fully Loaded Grilled Shrimp Tacos. Nom. Excellent. It's on the front page scroll.
  11. What Are You Ingesting?

    Bulgarian yogurt with the last of my medlar jelly. The two mix surprisingly well. and they seem to have helped my heartburn.
  12. What Are You Ingesting?

    What do you use to look up chickens? A very bright light?
  13. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Yep, I'm done with the wound doctor. Now it's a trip back to the podiatrist to deal with an ingrown toenail and a hammertoe.
  14. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Going back to wound care in about 20 minutes. I think the wound is healed—the problem is just a severely ingrown toenail, which means a trip to a separate doctor.
  15. What Are You Ingesting?

    Just finished off a bowl of Bulgarian yogurt mixed with chocolate pudding. I need the probiotics that it provides to offset what the Clindamycin kills off.
