Developing News Update!

This past week has been one heck of a week. My heart goes out to all of the people touched by those horrible tornado's that killed almost four hundred people and destroyed so many others lives. The devastation is unbelievable and heartbreaking to watch. I can not imagine how these poor souls are going to be able to put their lives back together. It is going to take a lot of help from us their neighbors. I have a list of things that I picked up from the Sheriff's Office on what they are gathering to take to these areas. So if you can ask your local law enforcement or churches where you can donate. Anything will mean so much to those that have nothing right now.

Then Monday morning I am sitting in the waiting room at the Rehab center and I hear on their TV that Osama had been killed. To tell you the truth even though it was CNN broadcasting I still could not believe what I was reading. Sad to say I wanted to shout with happiness which seems odd to want to do over a death. Is it wrong though to feel happiness over the devil himself being returned to hell.

My developing news is not good. A lot of you have been so kind to ask about what happened at the doctors office Monday afternoon. I could write a description here of how I feel about this man but I will spare you the obscenties and just say he is an absolute jerk. He never once examined me or cared that I was still in a lot of pain. His mission for that visit was to send me back to work and would not even consider otherwise. I return tomorrow morning part time with a few restrictions but not many. You would think after I eneded up in the emergency room after just working three part time days they would think maybe she can not work but no instead they maintain their stupidity.

All dr idiot did again was prescribe more pain pills. This time he prescribed pain patches. He would not listen to me when I ask for another MRI to see what was going on and he told me no surgery. He went on something about my workers comp was about to platuea and that after these therapy treatments I am doing now that workers comp probably would not approve anymore. In six weeks he would give me a test to determine my strength and they would go from there.

Your not going to believe this but I am not lying to you......he said that if I needed to ly down at work that they would let me rest in a cell. Can you believe that a Doctor would tell their patient that if you are hurting no problem they will find you a inmate cell to lay down in. I know now I have heard everything there is to hear from an idiot. I looked at him like he had lost his ever loving mind. 
I did finally manage to find an attorney to help me. I just pray she does a good job representing my case. She is Board Certified in Workmans Comp so let's hope I have no regrets when it comes to that decision. It is hard to pick an attorney like it is to pick the right doctor. Thank goodness I was not responsible for picking this pain management doctor that thinks you can lay down in a cell when you need too. What freaking school did this man graduate from or did he.

When I told my new attorney over the phone about resting in the cell she totally lost it laughing. lol Could you see me doing just that. I mean what kind of diseases do these inmates carry and then to lay down on the same mats that they lay on. I just wish I could relive that moment with Dr. Idiot I believe I would hit him with something. Anything would do....maybe even one of those plastic bone things that sit around in their offices. hahaha

I tell you if my Sgt or Captain suggest this tomorrow I honestly don't know what will happen. Crazy just crazy!

Well I hope all of you are having a wonderful week. I miss talking to you. I will do my best to try and visit even though I know for a while I am going to be dead when I get home in the evenings. I just hope I can do it and not end up in the emergency room.

I need to get off here and make sure my uniform and boots are clean. I should even try to turn in early tonight because tomorrow will be very stressful.

Can you just visualize this tomorrow..........Ok I need a break you can find me in Cell 99. Hey can you keep the noise down there is an Officer over here trying to take a nap for 15 minutes.  hahaha

Keep me up to date on you and I hope to talk again soon.

Love to all

OMGosh....Reminds of when my husband was a Houston Police Officer and he told me NEVER to sit in the back seat of a patrol car. He painted a pretty disgusting picture of stuff criminals leave behind in the back seats.

Fight for your rights Pearl!

Marydon said...

I agree with Janet ... FIGHT, sweetie. What a jerk this Dr. has been ... I do hope you are going to be ok. Praying for you ...I hope this lawyer nails them. What a racket they have going on here ... trying to force you to quit or for them to fire you. I am really worried about you.

Sorry I didn't get to you when I said, as we've been digging in the dirt! We laid 13 cu uards of ulch, yup! Now I am doing the planting ... my butt hurts!

Love you, call you shortly.
Hugs, Marydon

Wow, and this doctor gets paid. My son had a back fusion when he was 32. The pain never got better. The doctor refused to do another MRI. Finally after one year he decided to go to another doctor.
Now the old doctor wanted to do an MRI and send it to the new doctor. My son said no that he would have the new doctor do the MRI. The new one showed that the fusion was never in the proper place. They had to remove the old one and do two more fusions. It was so painful but he is so much better. Probably another surgery down the road but finally a bit better. His injury was caused from years of golfing......high school number one in the state for two years........he can't even gold now.
So stand strong with getting another MRI.....maybe the attorney can help. I feel bad for you having to return to work. (((((HUGS)))))

Sue said...

I wish I could have your sense of humor about this, but I am too busy being horrified at the idea of you going back to work again. I can't even believe what I am reading here.

I'm worried about it!!!

so sorry I will be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that there's no riot or fighting while you are resting in your special cell, Maggie! He is an idiot, but you have to remember who is paying him. I'm so glad to hear you went to a lawyer and are going this route. You really shouldn't have to be dealing with this.

Susan said...

I hope your lawyer is a female barracuda who doesn't tolerate fools gladly.

Julia said...

Maggie, I can't believe that this idiot doctor even suggested that you lay down in a cell to rest. I hope that your lawyer is going to get something much better for you. I'm lost for words at this doctor's thinking. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. JB

Shirley said...

Oh Maggie, I just can't believe what I am reading that the idiot doctor would even suggest such a thing. I just think he is milking the system for the money and doing nothing for you. I am so glad that you have found an attorney. I would not let the idiot do another thing for you. Giving you pain pills does not tell you what is causing all of the pain. It only covers up what is really wrong. You have rights and I would be sure the attorney found you someone that would help you. I would have fired the idiot a long time ago. That is one thing I have learned how to do and they don't want you to know that you have that right. I did chuckle at part of it. Honey, I will keep you in my prayers. Hugs Your Missouri friend.

A friend of my wife just had cancer removed from her face. While she was in the hospital, they supposedly decided that she had cancer in her female parts and convinced her to let them operate, then they did a second operation to take lymph nodes from her leg. After it was all over, they admitted that the small polyps they removed were benign and the lymph nodes were fine. She is divorced, has no insurance and must now take time off from her self-employment to recuperate. Don't think the doctors won't sue if she doesn't pay up. I'm beginning to lump doctors in with politicians as subhuman life forms.

jojo said...

I'm so glad you found an attorney. Certainly, someone besides you needs to be on board with your case and take your side...I could just scream!
You are in my thoughts and prayers sweetpea, please be careful, I really do worry so..;j

Tracy Suzanne said...

What an idiot! If I was there I would have had to hit him for you. I'm sorry that you're still in pain Sweetie. I'll be praying this attorney is a go-getter and will handle all this for you. Nothing like feeling bad and having an idiot for a Dr. to pile it on for you.

Hugs and love...Tracy :)

P.S. Stop by my blog today (after daylight that is).

LuLu Kellogg said...

Lucrecia *loo-kree-sha* (my alter ego) thinks that she and Ms Pearl need to go get this doctor and hang him up by his twigs and berries and THEN we'll see how much pain he can stand.

I am so glad you have an attorney and are not standing by quietly. I hope she will do a good job for you.

I am off to Philly for the National Halloween Convention and will be thinking of you and hoping you are ok.


Arkansas Patti said...

I am so glad you have an attorney. It does sound like they are trying to make you quit or be fired so benefits would cease.
Can't believe he won't authorize another MRI. You don't need more pain pills, you need to be fixed so pain does not exist.
Still praying for you Maggie, but now I am including your attorney.

Kim said...

I can hardly believe what I am reading here. I am so sorry that you have to have this added burden of worry and stress. I am thankful you now have a lawyer who appears to have some common sense. Sending you prayers and hopes that this ridiculous mess gets resolved quickly and in your favor.
Hugs, Kim

Olga said...

Getting an attorney sounds like the right path to be taking under these circumstances. It makes no sense to me that if you are going to need to have bed rest built into your day that you could possibly be ready to go back to work. But, hey, I'm not a doctor so what would I know.

Sharon said...

I can not believe what they are putting you through. I pray that your lawyer is one who loves to fight the system. GO GET'EM GIRL!!!!!!
Prayers that you get through a day of stress and no cell 99 for you.LOL

Whimsey Creations said...

Didn't you just want to punch that doctor? What an imbecile! You will be in my prayers girl - I'll be thinking of you. Hugs!

yaya said...

He's a doc picked by workman's comp...a government employee...he's paid to get you out of their hair..have I mentioned how much I hate workman's comp? I'm glad you got an attorney and hope she can get the job done, but I'm sure it will take time. Now, I hope you can be safe and not end up in the ER again. A nap in a cell? Are they really from this planet? Saying many prayers for you!

Mumsy, Chancy and Co. said...

In my opinion workman's comp helps no one. Everyone I know or have heard of has gotten no help at all through them and all end up in lawsuits. I hope too sweet Maggie that you have a good lawyer and she will get done for you what needs to be done.

That doctor should be put in one of those cells to rest. He needs to try out his own medicine. He has NO sense!

Still praying for you sweet Maggie. Take care of yourself as best you can while you are still having to deal with the doctors that have no idea how to help you or that are refusing to.

Love and hugs!

My Grama's Soul said...

Oh dear Maggie...I can't believe this is happening to thing did occur to me though....YOU COULD ALWAYS WEAR YOUR JAMMIES TO WORK!!! LOL LOL



Nezzy said...

I cannot even begin to believe how absurd that solution is, and there ya are in pain!

I so hope your attorney can help you out without costin' an arm and a leg.

You are always in my prayers sweetie. God bless and have a great rest in cell 99!!! :o)

Sybil said...

I am siting here and don't know whether to cry or laugh. I cry at such an idiot of a Dr. and laugh at the thought of you tucked up in a cell ROFL
Seriously though my dear friend I am praying that soon something will be resolved and you will be able to have a better quality of life.
Much Love Sybil xx

Libbie said...

You are kidding me! That is terrible! I hate to think of you even trying to go back to work! Now I am gonna worry about you so you make sure you let me know how it goes! Ooo Rocco is crying I better run!
