ok i'm done. later
oh, and steph's incision actually finished. the whole story on that one...a week after luke was born, steph's c-section incision formed a seroma. steph's OB saw her in the office and cut the incision back open to drain the fluid out. she left it open. and honestly, i think the fact that i'm a nurse didnt really help. she had me pack the dressing twice a day with iodoform gauze...which really means nothing to you. and that plan sorta worked for a while. but it was very very very slow. fast forward a few months...it basically stops healing and was starting to open back up. i ask steph to call her OB's office to be see immediately. we go in and see the nurse...and we get zero zero nothing none no help. zero. so i had to find our own wound care clinic...which i should have done in the BEGINNING. whatever. its past.
so we go to the wound care specialist. i was only able to go to one appointment with steph. but the doctor is great. very very nice. very good at explaining what to do. did not rush with questions. and he seemed to know what he was doing. he said that being a nurse and packing the wound like a nurse would actually made the process longer. if i was just some dude, the wound would have gotten infected and we would have need to go to a wound specialist earlier. sucks. BUT... after months and months of doing the incorrect thing with the wound, it started to heal. so thursday, steph went to her final wound care appointment. and it is officially healed. so to dr lindsay, thank you and i am forever grateful.
and to all surgeons, please dont pretend you know everything because you dont. if you dont know wound care, dont fucking pretend because your patients are the ones who suffer. just give it up and refer them.
ok i guess i'm done.
