Good ‘ol Granny

10 Aug

I attended a mandatory compounding CE today.  All review for me, thanks to the rotation I did at Lassiter Drug Compounding Specialists in Del City, Oklahoma.  Shout out to Mr. Lassiter, compounding extraordinaire and member of the Oklahoma State Board of Pharmacy!  Woot!  Props, Mr. Lassiter!

We made capsules, ointments, creams, suppositories, troches (reg and mini) and lollipops.  Fun stuff.  I only had one small incident involving the unguator.  Nothing got broken.  There was a slight woggling of the ointment jar and some screaming but nothing more.  No harm, no foul. 

I brought some of my righteous products home for Casey and the kids to test. 

 Before we move on, let me address a few looming questions about this photo.

1.  Why are they still in their pajamas at 5:00pm?

Because I left the house at 7:00am and Casey sees no need in wasting clean clothes

2.  Why are they testing their lollipops in the shower?

I do not know the answer to this question.  It is what it is.

3.  Did they like the lollipops?

They tasted like sugar, so, yes they did.

4.  Were these lollipops placebo or fentanyl?


I told Owen to make a happy sucker face.  This is the best he could come up with.  Whatever.

Then I made Casey test the ointment – my husband, Casey, who HATES any type of moisturizer.  Seriously, in the dead of winter when his hands are chapped, he makes ME put moisturizer on the tops of his hands and rub it in so that it won’t get on his palms.  Hates it.  BUT for his wifey, he’d do anything.

Haha!!!  Look at his disgusted face!  So cute!  Gooshney.  I love that man of mine.

So, I think I may have gotten off track a little, seeing as how the title of the post is Good ‘ol Granny.  She’s doing well, by the way.  I stopped by and saw her after the compounding CE.  She’s as funny as ever.  Here are a few of the things she’s learned since checking into the hospital:

1. She’s not depressed or suicidal because that’s what the psych eval guy said BUT he gave her his card and told her to call him if she got depressed.

2. She breathes really well for a 90-yr-old woman because that’s what the breathing study lady said. 

3. She couldn’t swallow the camera for the blood clot study thing and she only shouted at them a little bit when they wouldn’t quit saying, “swallow, swallow, swallow.”  I mean, when the camera is bigger than your throat hole, the muscles just squeeze up and won’t let the camera pass.  That’s what Granny told me so I believe it. 

After the camera swallowing incident, her throat was really swollen and raw so when they gave her a pill to swallow, it got “hung up” in her throat and she “couldn’t get it to go down or come back up”.  But don’t worry because they called the dang pharmacy and the pharmacist said that the pill she took would be ok just sitting there in her throat hole until it dissolved.  No harm, no foul.  Again, that’s what Granny told me. 

She hasn’t eaten a single thing today because her throat is so sore but she did choke down some prune juice in the hopes of producing a BM.  A daily BM is absolutely essential.  Granny said this so I know it’s true. 

She was getting in the shower right before I left.  I did not see her naked.  I did not.  So, that’s all I have to say about that.

Love, Luli
