I'm booked to fly out to a hospital next Tuesday to get the leg drained. I broke a blood vessel, and it's been leaking all the way down to my feet, turning my leg blue in some places. And it's very itchy and quite sore. That accident happened [i]ten days ago[/i] and I'm still waiting to get to the hospital. [img]frown.gif" border="0[/img]


That's pretty serious. Don't fool around with whatever instructions you have from your doctor. Do whatever they said, and take whatever they might have prescribed.

Relax. I'm pretty good with medical advice, and I've resisted the temptation to drain my leg myself. [img]smile.gif" border="0[/img]


Well, some people aren't. Usually with aches and pains and little oweys I'm pretty lacsidasical about medical attention, but this isn't in that catagory.


Good lord, Boom Boom, that sounds awful. Take care of yourself. [img]frown.gif" border="0[/img]


Holy Cow Boom Boom what Tommy and Michelle said! You look after yourself.


Take care Boom Boom. [img]smile.gif" border="0[/img]

I was supposed to go out last week but something happened with the surgeon and the trip was cancelled, and I was told to keep the leg elevated and iced. Then, yesterday, the nurse said keep the leg elevated, but now with a [i]warm[/i] compress, and we'll get the leg drained Tuesday or Wednesday next week. I asked the nurse to do it herself, but she said, no, it's surgery, and has to be done right. Hell, I've drained pus from a wound before, no big deal. But I'll follow her advice and see what happens.


Just thought I'd bump this thread because It's So Damned Cold In Toronto Today.

I left for work this morning, and the skies looked a little grey, but it was quite warm out. For the last week or so, it's been hot, sticky and humid out.

So then, on the streetcar to work, it starts absolutely pouring, pitchforks down. It clears up just as I'm getting off. (I figure that's a sign. Of what, I don't know.)

Then, about 45 minutes later, I walk outside to another building to go to a meeting and it's FREEZING. At lunchtime, it's even more freezing! Coming home it was frigid! I wore a skirt, bare legs, birkenstocks, and a t-shirt!

I hate winter! Enough with the winter!


Damn cold here too and it is going to be colder tomorrow. It really is time for summer.

Heh. We've had snow on and off the past few days, although it changes to rain as it warms up a bit. This is the coldest spring I can remember. It's been hell for gardeners here - everyone's late getting their crops planted, including me.


When I complained I thought about you Boom Boom and wondered if we are cold you must be really cold!


Well, it's been steamy here, but yesterdays cool high of 16 felt a bit winteresque because we are now acclimatized to the heat.

Today was gloriously cool, with a crisp blue sky strewn with ultra white clouds. The air was almost as refreshingly dry as my sense of humour.


It's supposed to be 30 and humid tomorrow, and I have to work on the more antiquated wheel assembly line. I will be sweating from 7:00 AM until about 3:00 pm.

At the end of the day, my hair will be curly and clotted, and I will once again be surprised to not find algae in my nether regions.

Enjoy the cool.


Yeah, the cool was gorgeous today - a little warmer than yesterday, but still very breezy and cool. I don't mind the coolness when I'm dressed for it! I just don't like it when the temperature drops suddenly after I've decided to go out with bare arms and legs. [img]smile.gif" border="0[/img]


Hey, is it time to revive this thread yet? The temperature in Ottawa has been dropping to 3 degrees overnight already, and winter definitely doesn't feel too far away. Brrrr. Or should I stick to the whining thread for now? [img]biggrin.gif" border="0[/img]


There's fog up here in Yellowknife today. It has been really cold at night. Mitten cold.

However, I am looking forward to doing some cross country skiing once the snow gets here.

The Winter thread is on TAT? It's still SUMMER for another week. It doesn't count if the temperature dips below zero, otherwise Calgarians would be posting here at least twice in July.

That said, Edmonton Airport reported snow last night. *thud*
