Update - Yusef

We've been inundated with visitors - relatives of all kinds. They are all adamant that Yusef was given the EVIL EYE by the old woman who had been prowling around in our garden. That's good news for me since I was worried they would somehow try to place the blame on me.

Yusef has an early morning appointment with an Orthopedic Surgeon for tests and will probably have his surgery scheduled for Friday or Saturday.


  1. Hey Teri! Sorry to hear about Yusef. He (and the rest of you) will be in our prayers.

  2. Because I can't be there to be his nurse, do this for me:

    VS Q2H (Take his vital signs every 2 hours).

    Assess Pain QH (Every Hour) And Medicate PRN (as needed). I hope that he has something good for pain.

    ROM (range of motion) exercises with unaffected extremities.

    Insure a quiet environment and reduce stress inducing situations.

    Allow patient to verbalize fear and anxiety.

    Assure patient that his injury is not his fault. (It’s the old lady and her evil eye’s fault)

    XO PRN (Hugs and Kisses when needed).

    Nurse (well almost) and Aunt Kris
