Google is Bad MmmmKay...

Upon hearing that the doctors think the black area on Scott's foot is a blood blister I took to Google. I've had blood blisters, I've seen blood blister and I've never seen one like this. So, off to Google I go. Let me just share with all of you DO NOT Google. Google is bad. Google Images will make you want to throw up your most fantastic Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte at 7am.
The blood blister pictures themselves aren't horrible but the places those pictures lead you too....I'm traumatized for life.

And as a disclaimer, I did NOT go to Google to disprove the doctors. I trust them completely. The 3 of them are on my top 10 list of the most intelligent people I've ever met, especially as it relates to anything vascular. I went more in search of reassurance, treatment options, etc. I wasn't here when the guys came by this morning so I didn't get to ask them all my questions.

I, Brandi Michelle Witt, will NOT Google Image anything medical anymore. It will only cause me serious stomach upset. Googling dead tissue, dead skin, blood blisters and Gangrene is bad. I shall NOT Google.
Thank you for your support.

Scott's going to be getting into the chair again this morning. It's time to start pushing a little bit, he needs to come home now.

For those of you with twitchy fingers that are hurriedly finishing reading my mindless ramblings before heading directly over to Google I have one thing to say to you.... DON'T DO IT. If you insist on not listening to me don't call me to ask how to clean vomit out of your carpet. I will only laugh and say "I told you so".

Now go forth and spend the rest of your day enjoying all the little things in the world that make your heart sing.

I plan to do just exactly as you suggest and do nothing and or anything that I want for today. I will not Google. That being said, only you sweetie would Google something with a gross name like blood blister etc., and then continue to search after seeing the first couple of pictures. Nope, I will follow your advice and not Google these things.

Have a great day and good luck with the sitting. All of Our Love. The Nortons

We all know that sometimes knowledge is less than perfect. No googling here. That said we love you all, Aunt Lynn. Tracey is 40 today, so you see how old that makes Unc and I. For us a wonderful 40 years with lots of fun stories.

I for one am listening to you Brandi. Mark doesn't need to come home to me passed out cold in a puked up mess.
So, what does this mean for you Scotty? Is reabsorption an option? I know with the good old horses blood blisters turn into abscesses which means infection.
So, I'm really glad Brandi kept Dr. Arrogant from screwing up your "Life Lines" .
So, Miss Queen of Fondu; What letters are we going to add to the back side of your name?
I for one will now add Bitchin to the front side. AHH YES ~ Miss Bitchin Brandoo BA (Bad Ass)
What color coat would you like that embroidered on ?

Scotty onward and upward !
We'll see you soon and as always

Great news on the blood blister--and trust me I won't be looking on Google for those images!!! I have learned my lesson after hearing about something from a patient and going to explore---it is not pretty--not pretty at all!!

Hopefully today brings continued positive news and results and January can wrap up better then it began!!

Brandi keep crackin' that whip and don't take anyones BS!

By the way S4 has plenty of banana bread if he would stop sharing it with the squirrels!!

Lots of Love and Happy Thoughts and Kitten Kisses


PS---we found out those cats we stalked, Winston and Reggie, were adopted before Christmas---so now we are back at Pet Smart pretending to be interested in adopting kittens!!

Now now..Google searches are the best. You must be prepared for what you see but where do you think I get all my stellar pictures?? Thats right.. Google. What you see out there is an education but some of the pictures are priceless.
Scott, if the time to push is now then light up the jackson!! Lets get you out of that place and back home so we can light up a welcome back party!! I'll throw you on my back and take you out myself if they let me!!

See you guys tomorrow!!

Ice falling off the house is really freaking out the cats; especially Penelope -- you know what nerves of steel she has! She's gone off to hide under the covers!

Love, Unc
