note to caretakers...

I've got a little time to kill before my appointment today.  So I just wanted to put this out there.  Just a little note to whoever is a caretaker...  If the "patient" says it hurts, please listen and adjust.  Don't go into a diatribe about how stimulating it is (like you don't know what you are talking about), just make an adjustment and ask "is this better?"  It takes a LOT for the patient to say anything negative about care they are getting.  We are so very appreciative.  So if we say it hurts, you can bank that it HURTS!

Now, I'm sure the caretakers have a whole litany of things they'd like to say to us patients...
