    Default OT: Mike

    Probably few here know that about a year ago, my wife was diagnosed with cancer. Good news is that she is now cancer free, but the chemo had made herhair fall out. Sometimes when hair grows back, it is very different than before. Her hair used to be totally straight, but now it's curly. A few minutes ago, the following exchange took place.

    Her: "I just realized what my hair looks like now."

    Me: "What?"

    Her: "The Brady Bunch father, I don't remeber his name."

    A minute or so later, from the other room,

    "Mike."

    I got the idea she was sick, but I didn't say anything because I didn't
    want to jump to the wrong conclusion. I'm very happy she's doing
    better.

    She's doing really well, better than in years. The chemo seems to have reduced the frequency and severity of her migraines really significantly.

    I also posted that exchange to Facebook, and when she saw it she laughed for a very long time. Bad thing is, now I have that stupid Brady Bunch theme song stuck in my head.

    Here's the story...of a lovely lady...

    ;-)

    Too bad you're not still on good terms with a former friend who's now
    an RN! I could have told you hair growing back after fallihng out
    after chemo can be quite different, in texture and/or color!

    fine.

    We had already been told that, so it was not unexpected. It was just the Mike Brady part that I found funny. I massaged her head with raspberry ketone, and her head has thicker hair, whereas the rest of her body has finer and more sparse hair regrowth. Still, almost no subaxillary regrowth. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18321745

    Whatever. I only used the word, subaxillary, because it was a word I happened to be familiar with, and I knew it would provoke an insult from you.

    Anyway, why would anybody want to discuss their medical issues with a guy who got kicked out of a nursing program for shooting off his mouth on Usenetabout one of the patients in his clinicals? That *is* what happened, right? How many tens of thousands of dollars in additional educational expenses and lost wages did that cost you?

    A nurse who cared more about public health than scoring points on Usenet would applaud a non-clinician who investigates health information from refereed journal articles, rather than from more questionable sources. A good nurse should want his patients--and all patients--to inform themselves regarding their health issues.

    A case in point is my participating in improving my health care by discovering research that demonstrated a correlation between acetaminophen and dry eyes. I told the optometrist about that, and she said that she'd read about that too, and that there was a good chance that my corneal issue was indeed a result of the acetaminophen in the pain medication I had been using for my broken arm.
    http://www.ajol.info/index.php/jnoa/...le/55588/44061

    I now know that there is a good chance that acetaminophen tends to dry out my eyes, and can inform medical professionals of that possibility. The optometrist now has a clinical experience that will inform her future diagnoses of those patients with a similar presentation. Medical diagnoses are informed by anecdotal experiences, as well as cutting edge science, and current norms.
    You know that.

    Neither of us are stupid, and calling me "quack" suggests that you disrespect my intelligence merely because you dislike my personality. Conflating the two makes you seem like a sloppy thinker.
