Mom says, “This better not turn up on your blog,” so I’m not going to post about where she’s been or what she’s been doing.
Instead, I’m posting a random set of links that I thought might be interesting to writers or inquiring readers.
Floyd Memorial Hospital is a very nice facility in New Albany, Indiana. From the Emergency Room through bronchoscopy to surgery, if you have medical needs in the New Albany area, consider this hospital.
Dysphagia — Is that a cool word, or what? It means difficulty swallowing. There are many forms, manners of detection, and treatments.
Speaking of cool words, how about dropping the phrase percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy into a conversation? Everybody would be like, “Oh, yeah, I was at their first concert, when they opened for the Stones.” And they would be WRONG!
Another fine facility in New Albany is Southern Indiana Rehab Hospital. The therapy regimen is intense, by which I mean it starts as mild as it needs to, but as challenging as the patient can manage. The staff is strongly encouraging and motivating, and the patients I’ve known there have actively participated in their own recovery and have recovered in record time.
I wish I could tell you about what Mom’s been up to, but she forbade me to do it, and I always obey my mother.
