BlackBill the Pirate Duck

Seeing as how there is only so much TV you can watch, Dave and I have found other things to keep our time occupied. When he was in Afghanistan he wore a Pirate patch on his vest and it somehow found its way back with him thru everything. So he wears this patch on the velcro part of his wrist splint. One of his PACU nurses noticed it and she was also wearing something pirate-related to hold her badge. So about 2 weeks later she came to the room, while on vacation she found Pirate Band-Aids and bought them for Dave! So of course we open them and I find a little spot on my finger that probably did not really need a Band-Aid, but come on, I had to.....So inside the box was a "hidden treasure". Can you spot him? Look close......







We named him BlackBill the Pirate of the Ex Fix.......ok don't judge, we have nothing better to do. It's funny because most people don't notice him, but when some one does they crack up laughing.

I'm sure your getting a crash course on "Medical" lingo... I hope their talking to you in terms & words you understand.Being married to Dr-I know they talk in a different language at times. That looks like a super complicated device on his leg!!

I could not find what you were talking about until the last picture.

Boy, that's some contraption on David's leg. It is amazing what doctors can do.

Hey, I am an old friend of Dave' from EOD school. My husband is also an EOD tech and he was injured in December. We spent a month on Ward 57, room 33 which I believe is pretty close to you guys. My hubby even had the same Ex Fix on his leg. We called his the erector set. We are praying for you both daily. We are sending a package, let me know if there is anything specific you two would like. I don't know if you guys have figured it out yet, but if you go to the Red Cross and get a portable DVD player you can hook it up to the t.v in the room. That's what we did. My email is megan2mclean@yahoo.com. Take care and tell Dave BT said Hi.

Girlfriend I remember that thing. Cleve had one for a while.

Whoa. I just noticed. the first picture of him with the neck pillow. Cleve had a blue one exactly like it and would hang out with his leg tied up like that. They look like clones. Wierd. P.S. If you ever EVER need anything, let me know. Cleve is just about to retire but we've been doing this crap for 3 years. Hit me up ANY time.
