Back to home

If you know me then you would probably know that I’m staying away from my home for a while. I’m traveling back to India today (blogging from airport now) . I’ve been little busy with other stuff here or didn’t like to write much so you would have not seen much posts for a while. Hope I’ll be all set after my two weeks vacation in India!

BTW, traveling back home really feels good ๐Ÿ˜‰

See you guys back soon.

Almost a half day at urgent care

After last night accident of breaking my finger almost I had a uneven sleep which took me off so early from the bed around 6:30 am. I was feeling quite okay and had to take my bath without having my fingers wet. It was very hard to do that; believe me. Finally I made to my office somehow.

I really had bad time in using my mouse since my index finger was hurt. I was pretty okay with the typing though; managed the show well with the other fingers. I was sharing what happened last nigh with one my colleague, and he was the one who referred me to go check with doctor. He helped me in finding out what kind of befits I have and which all kind of treatment are available to me with my insurance.

I called up the insurance people and confirmed that they have 100% coverage on particular type of incident. Then I figured out the urgent care hospital near to my place. MedStat a urgent care unit of Kosciusko Community Hospital was nearer and I called them to confirm they participate in my insurance network. Then I moved on there by 12:00 pm.

I had to complete few formality at the hospital check-in. Then I payed my co-payment amount for the insurance coverage and was asked to wait. Within few moments, I had a nurse to assist me with. She was little talkative and collected as much information needed for their medical record. Then she did basic medical checkup viz. body temperature, blood pressure and pulse rate. And she found everything was okay with me. did I tell you? already a hour is over for this ๐Ÿ™

After gathering data, she asked me to wait till she get a doctor for me. Meanwhile she also removed the first-aid band which i used. I was too bad ๐Ÿ™ with frozen blood and loose skin around ๐Ÿ™ Then I had to wait for some more time to see the physician. He arrived gently with my case notes. He was very gentle and was explaining things neatly. Only after that I realized it was much better since I made it to the hospital. I had huge amount of loose skin and frozen blood due to trap, it would collapsed it totally If i didn’t give attention to it.

The physician confirmed with me if i had tetanus shot before in recent year. FYI, tetanus shot is good for 10 year if you had a consecutive shots for 3 times. Since I almost met that he didn’t want me to take it again. He was gentle enough to clean all those stuff out and cut the skin over. He really made me feel better. He also confirmed that it was a fracture by asking me to certain finger movements. So there was no need to X-ray at least. Finally he provided me with the medical instructions and everything i wanted to treat myself for next few days. He wanted to come back if something really goes worse.

Finally i was so much relief, you know what it was almost 3:00. And we (me and friend who took me to hospital) were missing the lunch so we decided to go to the same Chinese again. I had Chicken Fry Rice and Chicken Curry; it was too spicy and hot as requested by us ๐Ÿ™‚ The afternoon got over so quick out of office;-)

I almost broke my finger

Oopss! It was a bad evening and a weird typing now. Yes, I almost broke my right pointing finger accidentally. But fortunately I almost had the luck of not breaking it completely and saving a lot of doctor fee ๐Ÿ™‚ It really hurt me badly at that moment.

Right, here is what happened this evening. My friends and me decided to have dinner in one of our favorite Chinese restaurant located at downtown. We drove to that place from our apartment, we’re having some interesting discussion going on while driving (I’m not gonna tell about the discussion though :-!)

It was my bad time started then, with the hot discussion on; I got out of the car in direction i was sitting. I didn’t bother to take my hands complete out and gave the door complete push with my other hand. Thanks to my friend who drove the car; he locked the door as soon as everyone is out. See how hurry people are in ๐Ÿ™ It was the moment my pain climbed the rocket high. Damn, my finger was almost stuck between the car door. And I couldn’t help myself because of central lock ๐Ÿ™ I believe it would be around 30 sec I was held helpless.

Thanks to my friends who realized what went wrong and came into the rescue. I really appreciate their help. I was almost exhausted with the pain! We did have a hard time to figure out if the finger is broken or not. All were worried since if we’re getting to a hospital for any reason, they are going to charge no less than 1000$. They will start with X-ray blah.. blah.. etc.. and will never give a immediate attention unless it is urgent.

Even though with these constraints, I decided to try some hospital near by. But my luck on the way to hospital i tried few basic hand movements and confirmed it is not broke and is only a minor injury. Thank you god ๐Ÿ™‚ Well.. then I have to grow my confidence a little bit and started to drive away the pain. We dropped the hospital plan and saved some big bucks. On the way back, we go the first aid bandage from a pharmacy. After that i was feeling much better than I was.

Before ending, I would like to share few precautionary measures while getting out of the car.

  • Don’t fall into deep discussion that takes away your attention while getting out of the car.
  • Make sure you use the same hand toward the direction you sit to close the door. That will make sure all your stuff is out ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Don’t close the door too harsh. It might save you from getting hurt badly.

Finally, we didn’t miss the dinner at Chinese ๐Ÿ™‚ I had Shrimp Fry Rice finally but had to take it slow with my almost broken finger!

Writing and Talking, is there a real difference?

I read about an interesting post by Andrew Sparrow. The author quotes,

Some people are writers. Some people are talkers

I believe this statement is very true. Some people are at the best only when they are with voice while others are good enough with writing itself.
I personally think I’m a good writer rather than being good talker. But this is not proven all time. Sometimes I’m good at talking with the group I know rather than writing. I keep fluctuating on what I’m that makes the difference.

What is your opinion about the same?
