Please drop by Denise's blog and wish her a Happy Birthday. She's been in a lot of pain with her back and could definitely use a little sunshine in her life.
It's time for Show and Tell Friday. If you would like to participate, drop over to Kelli's at There's No Place Like Home.
I missed Show and Tell Friday last week, but remembered it this week. I may actually get back on track here. Things were so hectic for a bit that I could barely remember my name, address and year of birth.
This week I'd like to show you my Scarlett O' Hara figurine. I picked her up at an auction sale and I have the certificate of authenticity. She was released by the Franklin Mint in 1987. I've owned her for about two years. Since Gone With the Wind is one of my favorite movies, I just couldn't resist her, especially when she went for only about half of the original price.
Scarlett is 12 inches tall and she is a beauty. I know that Avon had a small Scarlett figurine out, but this one is just the perfect size. She sits on a shelf in my computer room and keeps me company when I write and blog. She is beautiful and adds old country charm to the room, which is decorated in vintage items that I've picked up at auctions, garage sales and in thrift stores. Maybe next week I will show you my Peerless Gum tin sign that hangs on the wall near my computer.Happy Birthday to my dear friend, Denise, at Samaritan Women. Denise, when I read on your blog that it was your birthday on Friday, I just had to find a special card for you. I hope you enjoy it.
Update on Michelle:
Things were going along good until Michelle's incision opened. A nurse is now coming in twice a day - morning and night - to irrigate it and pack the incision. One nurse neglected to clean it properly and the infection got worse. It was very sore yesterday, but today the nursing supervisor came to check things out and she has that nurse under investigation.
The supervisor did a thorough job of irrigating the wound. The other nurse had let the wound sit with the old dressing on for 20 hours. Of course that made things worse and then she said she wasn't coming back that day. I lost it. I phoned the nursing supervisor on Wednesday night and that is why she came out today. I'm glad she did, as she found out that the nurse in question was charting that Michelle's incision was dry when it has been nothing but far from dry. Michelle had put the dressings in a ziploc bag and kept them for the supervisor. So we shall see what happens.
The supervisor did say that particular nurse will not be coming back to do Michelle's dressing. Of that we are thankful.
I took the boys to school this morning, picked up some Polysporin for Michelle and then stayed while she showered. After that we talked for a few minutes and I came home. It was nice having a few quiet minutes with her. Usually she is working so the only time we get to talk is when the boys are there or on the phone.
That's about all the news for tonight. Sorry I've been a little sporadic in posting and visiting. I still have a very low energy level and hope to get some rest on the weekend.
Remember to do a kind deed for someone today. It could be a family member, a friend or a stranger. Whoever it is, a small kindness can make a big difference when someone is having a bad day. ~Blessings, Mary~
