Summer Movie Round Up!

Ah, September. Kids are back to school, it’s cooler in the mornings, and people like myself are already three months into Halloween planning. But now is that time that people also look back and reflect on the summer movie run for the year. So let’s take a look at a sample of what this year had to offer from May-August. Now, my list is a bit short, and will be missing some obvious entries. We live pretty far from the closest theater so we don’t get a chance to see everything. So here’s what we have, in order of release (and spoiler-free!):

  • The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.

This contest will close at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, September 4th.

KHU

Hey Folks, Just a quick update on my current health status. Good news is, I got results from a culture my doctor took last week and I am MRSA free, On the little bit good, little bit bad news front my doctor has decided to extend my disability for  nearly an additional month due to the wounds caused by the toe and bone amputations on my foot. So instead of returning to work in 3 weeks on Sept. 20th I am currently slated to return to work on Oct. 17th pending additional evaluation and completion of my Hyperbaric treatments. So there you have it, not a lot to report this time around but things for the most part are heading in the right direction.

Once more a KHU!!

Well I went to wound care today and also spoke with the hyperbaric tech. All good news. The xray of my foot came back with no additional infection in the bones of my foot so no additional surgery. The hyperbaric tech said my insurance cleared the treatment and my first "dive" is tomorrow morning at 10 am. Tech said to expect it to take about 3 hours! Here is basicly what the chamber looks like:

40 treatments for 3 hours each monday-friday and hopefully my foot will be fully healed by the end of which! Wish me luck everyone!!!

Another KHU …..

Kaldath Here with ,y newest Health update. As things stand at the moment, I am no longer on any prescription pain medication thus my pain levels have increased a bit but so far nothing I can not bare with the help of OTC pain meds.  I have completed my IV infusion treatments and have had my IV PICC line taken out. I just underwent a battery of tests to see if I can be put in the Hyperbaric chamber to aid my foot in healing, and speaking of the foot the doctor is concerned that one of the 3 injuries is not healing fast enough and that there may still be some bone infection which would result in me lossing more bone from my foot via amputation and I just had a CT scan to check that out so obviously not the best of news, but hopefully the scan shows me infection free. At the very least I have the weekend off for the first time from any kind of medical treatment. Tomorrow is my birthday and I thankfully will not need to spend it in a hospital or doctors office!!
