NUUUUUUUU

You know, I sincerely wish that Youtube got restarted. 99,99% of it is worthless content created by and for basement dwellers, deranged children and people with various mental dysfunctions. Kind of like TV

Seriously though, YT became a biggest dump I've ever seen. Dump of useless videos. There's brilliance and beautiful things there too, only they're sometimes so buried you have to plow thru shit like a real deal sewer diver to get to them. People should get hazard pay for searching for something on YouTube.

If you can 'flog the dog' you can spackle or mud. To feather it out it's all in the motion of the wrist.

and you get better with practice.

Sometimes you write like you're from Poland. Other times you write like you're from middle America.

In Poland I am a middle class person, and I suppose middle America or middle Poland are more or less the same in terms of how we perceive things.

It's your fault for not taken it in your self.

Many years ago the wife took her VW in for service, Lub & oil changes. Called he an said that the brakes needed to be replaced. I told her to tell them that she wanted the old one.
They didn't leave them in the car for me to look at. When I got home I wanted to look at them. Pissed me of that the old one were not in the car.

I went to the dealer an asked for them. They brought me a set of brakes shoes. That's when all hell started. The dumb shits gave me a set an I am not sure if they were from the wife's V.W. They fucked up because theses' had a lot more miles on them. Got our money back for them. Remember that I am 3/4 of a century old.

08-2018. Broken Tibia and Fibula. Still non-weight bearing.

I have been off work since mid February.

And then:

A week ago I feel like shit. Sweaty, run down etc, in bed all of last week very dizzy upon standing. Saturday morning I decided to self asses. Diaphoretic, no radial pulses, no carotid pulses. Very pale. Have my wife take me to the ER....
New onset Atrial Fibrillation. Very unstable. HR 160-220. No radial or carotid pulses. Synch Cardioversion was next. Echocardiogram is good. All tests are good.

I got a beta blocker that did nothing. Some IVP Diltiazem, then infusions of Dilt. Finally converted to Sinus about 12 hours later. I was in ICU, but went to a telemetry floor and PO Dilt is keeping me hemodynamically stable with a sinus rhythm of 70BPM and I am going home today.

This year can eat my ass. I have been off work since mid February and will be off for the rest of the year.

Looking forward to a nice, healthy 2019.
I finally found something I am good at.

Keeping this thread alive and loaded all kinds of good stuff.

Aaannnnnd back to the OR I go. Day after Thanksgiving.

I formally severed the patient/provider relationship with the other clown. I am now followed by the Ortho. Chief who always has PA students with him. Cool and very competent cat.


Something about Adhesive Encapsulitis, a bottle of Jack and an ice pick. The ROM in my shoulder is shit.

What the fuck ya gonna do? Could always be worse.

It might be time to take you to the vet, and just have them put you down.

Seriously though, hope you get to better health soon. I'm due for another epidural soon.

No. Just the opposite. I drink too damn much coffee. There's probably no problem there...just bitching to be bitching.
