120207 Hospice Strikes Again, It’s Nursing Field Officers Heavily Armed With Nasty Sphygmomaneters!

with 4 comments

Tuesday! So it must be time for my weekly Monday visit from that other Connie who rides the ranges around western Cincinnti with a spygymomanter hanging around her shoulders.

120207 Fle receiving the modern day Medici of Cincinnati's Western Hills for survival of the least fit. Meet, from the Cincinnati Hospice, first the patient, ME with lots of toys for them to use for practice: longs, hart, kidneyes. crooked bones and a sassy mouth to give it all a taste of reality! (flephoto. 2/7/2012 CBFL apart. Cinc OH)

Leading Lisa the nurse from Russial with her free hand to introduce me and my new camera to the land of no-shit medicine.

Had to be problematic. 190/83. That’s HIGH blood pressure and nobody knows what to do about. Connie the nurse is worried about how we can reduce it to tolerable pressure; Connie, CB, is worried because she accidentally gave me one of hers this morning; I am worried that I’m eating too much fat and too much salt. All of us wondering whether the new shower of pills odered up by Eric the doctor is gonna make this shit go down and keep me up for just a little while longer. Juuuust a little while.


“How to you feel?”

“Pain? How Much? How often? 1-10?


“How do you feel?

“Compare how you feel to how you did feel?

“What do you mean you dont know, Frankie?

“Yes, it’s high says Connie. And, yes, we’re working on it.

Connie the hospice nurse (left) and Lisa, in nurse training, from Russia. "I'm already a nurse but am pursuing my education." Two of medicine's good guys." "Course of I die, that could all be changed.

“Do you want us to come out a second time this week?”

“Damn right,” I pleaded. “What you’re doing here is scaring the crap out of me, like that scared of dying thing.”

“Will we know something Friday?”

“Hi-you, Silvvverrr. Awwwaaaayyyy……………”
