I'll be in outpatient surgery when this post goes "live." I'm having a foot deformity surgically corrected so I can walk more easily. Outpatient surgery is a delightful option and I've chosen it so I can heal in the comfort of my home and face the future smiling. I already feel like dancing!
I can't predict how soon I'll be back to my PC and updating the blog. I have to allow the foot to heal as I prop it up to minimize post-surgical swelling. That makes sitting near a desk quite awkward.
I'd appreciate your prayers for a speedy recovery. I hope to update you with some terrific patient-empowering information after I heal.
Want to know how I can be so cheerful in spite of pain, physical limitations and all the life-altering complications that surgery implies?

Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity.
Face Your Future with Optimism.
Save your sanity, time & money!
You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.
You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?
A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.
I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.
I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.
Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.
