Cool ID card...As an ICU nurse at Scripps the secret to the BEST HEALTHCARE is to be moribdly obese or rail thin because your only calorie source is alcohol. You need to have no ID or multiple ID's that have never belonged to you. You also need to be doing nothing preventative, never ever follow up as instructed. Seek only pain meds and not finish prescriptions for antibx. You also need to be hospitalized and leave "AMA" several times while you search the street for heroin. You also need to demand RN's correctly indentify the difference between husband and "baby daddy". Never ever pay a dime. That's how you get the best care.

Hopefully this is just the grand finale. I haven't checked any sources but pneunomia post sinus surgery or in the presence of sinusitis makes perfect sense. Basically it sounds like a recipe for pneumonia. Not to say you can't manage your secretions or protect your airway :) Post nasal drip from the sinuses + pain meds make it really easy to aspirate secretions while sleeping and supine in bed. An earlier x-ray may have helped but some practitioners are really good at using the stethescope. I think seeing a provider like Stacy, who is an athlete is helpful. Often tools are used to judge a pt's condition. Such as ability to tolarate activity....climbing a flight of steps. They don't really rate somebody who can do a track workout. It kind of stinks though because "bad care" is often more the system than the doctor. More and more their hands are tied. They often have to do x,y, and z before doing what we think they should.

Sending you lots of well wishes for a final and speedy recovery.

That's funny.

I made an Ironkids card very similar to that for Teegan last year after her Ironkids race. She always likes showing her "ID" to the front gate guards at New River.
