Million Dollar Baby

with 7 comments

Marin County | California

Rica’s fractured wrist wasn’t her only medical malfunction lately. Last November she had foot surgery, repairing a bit of damage from a lifetime of caring for others as a physical therapist. That surgery turned out well, and yesterday she learned that her new wrist fracture is likely to heal properly without the insertion of a plate. Lucky, our dog, is much relieved. She has been slinking around the house after seeing me take Ben Schaffer’s ancient 22 LR out of the upstairs closet. (Lucky caused this latest injury.)

Hospital staff must be picking up Rica’s special person vibes because so far she has received million dollar treatment. I’ve known this forever; it’s good to see strangers notice.

Nurse Letty Fajardo was just one of the UCSF staff who took good care of Rica.

  2. Great shots–just a bummer topic.  Rica deserves all the special treatment as she is finally on the receiving end. Greetings, HK

  4. of course like your web site but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I
    find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I will surely come back again.

    • I’m sorry about the spelling. I try my best but obviously it’s not good enough.
