Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words today are taken from the book: Heart Of The Matter  by Emily Giffin


1. Escharotomy- is a procedure used on full-thickness, third-degree burns when there is edema-or-swelling that limits circulation.

2. Hedonism-is a school of thought that argues that pleasure is the only intrinsic good.

3. Karmic- the total effect of a person's actions and conduct during the successive phases of the person's existence.

  1. Unfortunately, I know all about escharotomy from my days in wound care. The Tilted World looks like an interesting book- thanks for sharing that too!

  2. I had an idea about what karmic means. I don't even want to think about an escharotomy - it sounds horrible.

  3. I've seen hedonism but escharotomy is new to me. I agree with Kathy, it sounds horrible...
