  •  After over 100 stitches in my face and head (3+ / 0-)

    I had thought I had my body pretty well customized the wy I like it but but turns out I don't.
    The thing is on my upper left ear inside the helix wondering if theyre'll be a big hole there, maybe a big notch?
    Starting to think up all the lies I'll tell about it later.
    "there I was,..........."

    they don't seem to be treating it as a dropdead emergency so I guess I won't either.? It seems like its non-life threateningand not is a reall vitalplace---could lose rhe whole ear and still walk around smiling a lopsided smile.

    I'm hoping there'll be some kind of cover up for this.

      I haven't talked to a doctor yet. They left a Voice mail for me telling me the prognosis, obviously some secretary reading something. I called them back, they (some secretary) told me they were sending everything to Portland VA to get it ddone
      , they'd contact me by the end of the week. This is where things go wrong in the VA, falling between the cracks as you get shuffled between places. This is what you need to follow up on, being a pest if required untill they get it right. If they don't call me by the end of the week, I'm on their trail on Monday

        at not hiding your head in the sand, so I know you'll stay on them as needed.

        Got to get 'er done so you can go to So America, right!

          BOY am I glad I had them move this up---they had me scheduled for the biopsy the 2d week of february.

          During my heart attack, in which I walked right up and looked over the edge (again) I reaally got that my life is OK, I'm satisfied with it. No real regrets, except for the times I hurt the ones who loved me.

          I'm pretty laid back about this. REALLY shows you got to keep up on this stuff. thanks God I got eh VA.
          My dad told me once that after 50, its all about staying healthy and he should know, he's 91. Another thing he turned out to be right as rain about.
