Crud.

Article in paper today about this surgical tech knowingly infecting people with hepatitis C. She's been arrested and they are notifying all the patients who got surgery during her time there.

I just got my letter.

FUCK OFF ALREADY! NO you didn't!!!

OH MY GOD, Nancy! What next?

I can't beleive this... I mean, of course I beleive it, but it's really crazy! How do you keep your shit together??

Lisa said...

Are you serious?? I cannot believe this is happening to you. Haven't you had enough???

areyoukiddingme said...

No way. That is totally unfuckingbelievable. Well, I think you've sacrificed enough to the medical community this year. Here's hoping the tech never came near you or anything you touched. I'll be saying a prayer for you.

Kymberli said...

What. the. fuck. Can't you catch a break? Just ONE BREAK? I'm so sorry...I hope that this turns out to be nothing. (((HUGS)))

jill said...

~*JaYmE*~ said...

What the fuck!? Are you serious. OMG. I'm so sorry...

Jendeis said...

Crud is right. What is this? Some sort of homing signal that attracts absolute B/S?

At some point, your insurance must get to catastrophic and then they cover 100%. It's almost like, let's just go for it.

And, I am totally kidding and hoping that this is just nothing.

Duran Baby said...

You poor thing. When it rains it pours. You have been through enough already! Praying that she was no where near you.

Morgan said...

What the fuck! ?

So what do you do now, do you like have to get tested or something?

The Captain's Wife said...

WTF? It does not state that you WERE infected right? Just that you were in the hospital during her tenure? Holy shit....

loribeth said...

Jules said...

You've got to be kidding! I've been reading the articles in the news, hope she wasn't working your particular surgery!

People suck sometimes. What the fuck?

Kristin said...

Well FUCK me! I hope to God she came nowhere near you!

Lavender Luz said...

OMG! I've been watching this story and now it's touching my FRIEND.

I am so peeved on your behalf.

Oh, boy, am I mad at that surgtech.

Crap, Nancy. Just crap.

ak said...

SHUT.THE.****.UP!! I am SO so sorry you're going through this. I can't imagine what's going on in your mind. Thinking of you! I just know you will be fine & not infected. Major {{HUGS!}}

Sarah R said...

FUCK ME!!! Oh my fucking god. UGH! I can't take anymore bad news from you! WTF?!?!?

I really hope you're safe......

Jen said...

Shit Nancy! I can't believe this. There are some seriously fucked up people out there in the world.

I hope and pray that you are safe and is as healthy as ever.

I will be thinking about you and hoping for the very best.

I would say you have gone through MORE than enough medical shit in the last year. You deserve a free pass on this one. (not like the others don't, but you know what I mean)

(((((HUGS)))))

Tigger said...

Oh fuck. That's about all I can say. Aaron told me this bitch's story the other day, but this seriously puts it into a whole new light. Fingers crossed that you'll catch a break and NOT catch hep C. *hugs*

Elana Kahn said...

Jeezus H Christ....that's sick. I really hope 2010 goes better for you than 2009!!! :-D

KimboSue said...

You've GOT to be fucking kidding me!

LJ said...

Fuckity crap. This is just a string of bs that you are dealing with woman!

Shinejil said...

What the... Damn, my 2008 seems to have morphed and gained more evil strength to become your wretched, nasty, rat-bastard 2009. I'm so sorry, Nancy, that you've had all the shit on your plate.

Anonymous said...

OMG!
WTF is wrong with people?
Nancy I am beyond sorry you are dealing with this. I hope you just got that letter out of an abundance of caution on the hospital's part and you are fine.
*hugs*.

--Kristin

Kate said...

Well I sure hope you're not one of the real victims here.
If it helps at all, I think I was taught that the transmission rate of Hep C from a needlestick is only 4% (vs 0.4% for HIV and something like 3-40% for Hep B).
How long ago were you exposed? You can likely get tested now and find out if you're ok.

minus one said...

HOLY SHIT!!!!! When will the madness end?

Lee said...

Hoping that you're one of the ones who is NOT impacted by this.

Larissa said...

Holy crap Nancy, you should invest in a bubble and stay in there. I can't believe this psycho, I hope she didn't work your particular surgery. ((HUGE HUGS))

Birdee said...

Shit Nancy, I just watched the news cast on Fox 31. I can NOT believe this. I'm so pissed and sad for you and what you're going through right now. That woman, WTF. I hope your not infected, GOD I hope you not, and knowing how many people may have been infected in your area, it just makes me sick.
I'm at a total loss for words.

~million hugs~ coming your way hunny, I'd be shitting too.

uncomplicateme said...

You are KIDDING ME! If you didn't have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all, right? So hoping that you weren't one of them. Who has the audacity to do something like that?!

higretchen said...

Nancy,
DITTO what everyone else has said. I don't normally post but do follow your blog and this is just so ridiculous! I cannot believe all the crap you've been dealing with in such a short time - I hope you can get tested soon and find out that this does not affect you....

Shea said...

Not sure what surgery this relates to but it could possible explain the tremendous amount of pain you were in afterwards with no relief from pain medications. (She stole the pain meds and refilled them with saline.)

So sorry to hear it's affected you!

Emmie :) said...

NO FUCKING WAY!!! i'm so sorry you have do go through THIS on top of everything else!

mommybird said...

You have to be kidding me!! So, what steps do you have to go through now? Obviously you'll have to get tested, I hope it's good news for you.

Dana said...

This is just awful. How could someone just do that and have no remorse? Why? WHY? I'm so infuriated right now.

Lilith Silvermane said...

~blinks~ Are you fisting me???

Cheese and rice you have the strangest life.

Yea... we really need to hang out together.... you have gotta be a blast for a night on the town.

Ok... so when are you going to get checked out? What are the procedures?.... Krimeny....

Beautiful Mess said...

STFU?! That's pure bullshit! I'm so sorry hon! Sending you all the good JUJU I've got!
*HUGS*

Becca said...

Wha???? Seriously?

What the fuck Nancy, were you a serial killer in a prior life and are being punished or what?

Man oh man, hoping and praying for some GOOD luck to come your way.

As for this evil bitch, I agree someone needs to find a dirty needle to stick her with...

Tobacco Brunette said...

You're joking right? What kind of fucking bullshit is this?

I haven't read all the way through your posts. Hopefully the next one says this was a delayed April Fool's joke...what the fucking hell?

sacredandscarred said...

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

zach05kate95 said...

That is seriously fucked up!!! What the fuck is wrong with her?? She needs to be bitch slapped, plain and simple.

Liz said...

I don't think I can use any combination of profanity that hasn't already been used to announce my outrage and support.

Mai said...

Okay..so Im just now catching up this is fucking ridiculous!! What else do you need!? Please keep us updated.

This sucks donkey cock!!

I'm a nurse in an OR, and I can tell you that if you got the letter, then she had to have been the scrub tech in your OR at some point for one of your surgeries. I'd have to say the chances of you contracting HepC from her are slim. For one, she'd have to have had a needle stick in your case and then had to have touched an open area on you or an instrument used directly in you. Generally if a needle stick occurs the tech either leaves the case or scrubs out and then scrubs back in with new gown and gloves. So, the stars would have to be aligned pretty damn shitty to get infected! No matter what it sucks and is really scary, I'll be thinking of you! Oh, and you do need to get the initial blood test, and then to back after so many weeks/months for follow up blood draws!

theclam said...

Crap in the land! What the hell is WRONG with ppl in this world?

Hope you're one of the lucky ones honey.

Thinking of you.

Kaci said...

What the fuck kind of person does shit like this?!?! Damn

And yeah, I'm way behind on reading, sorry you lost your job & then got this news too. :(

Geochick said...

So so sorry - it really sucks, especially since it looks like you're going thru a crappy time right now. I was a not-so-happy recipient of "the letter" too.
