WHAT'S ON MY MIND TODAY

**I was going to type about something else today, but that can hold out until 

tomorrow.

I have a condition called thin skin, not it does not mean I'm too sensitive, that I 

have because of too many years in the sun. The slightest scrap, bump or scratch 

from our dog, Dolly Jo, can cause a bruise or a bleeding wound on my forearms

and the front and back of my legs from the knee down. 

About a month ago, I sustained an approximate 1/4 inch deep wound, the worst 

so far, after scraping against the open latch of a small cedar chest in my room. 

In about 2002, I received wound care from the Healing Center located behind the

Wooster Community Hospital in Wooster, Ohio after my infected defibrillator was 

extracted by the Cleveland Clinic.

The infection was very close to the heart, but the Wound Healing Center did a 

commendable job of healing the wound in a minimum amount of time.

Back to the present. I had an appointment at the Wound Healing Center this 

morning at 9:30 AM and as I walked through the door, I was greeted by the 

receptionist, Ms. B. You guess the rest of her name. You're smart. Then I had to 

pee because I took a water pill this morning and was ushered to the everyone 

can use restroom by Ms. M. I'll give you a better hint here, the second letter was 

E. I then was made to go into a patient room by someone I forgot and later, Ms. 

J came into the room. Better hint here, 4 more letters. For right now, the other 

nurse's name escapes me and I'm certainly sorry for that. Maybe during my next 

visit, a week from now, I'll sing "I'm Sorry, I'm Sorry" by Brenda Lee. 

The doctor then came in and cleaned the dead cells from the wound, explained to 

me why my legs were swollen and answered all my questions. He had an 

assistant with a three letter name, you'll never guess, and the doctor's last 

name started with an S, the rest being letters from the 26 letter English alphabet. 



Who's he?

Another nurse entered the room and wrapped my wound explaining each step as 

she proceeded, her name lost forever in my mind because of my beginnings of 

dementia. 

All in all, it was a most wondrous morning mainly because everyone was 

friendly. You know how much I enjoy friendly people.
