This is not our first experience with hospitals, they always sorta wear you out and drain you. I cannot figure why, there is no work to it here. Now taking care of a person at home is Work with the capitol W.
(Shir & Hubby Jim. Jim was taken care of at home by Shirl, Sherry & I helped some, mostly at the end and outside, they hade huge yards, to mow & trim)
Also humans are sneaky, when a patient is told not to eat certain things, they try to do just that. Beg or coerce family and friends to bring them a Big Mac or a Whopper.
I seldom try to talk to John because I figure it just exasperates him not to be able to answer. Last night he looked so alert I did ask him how he felt, do you hurt etc? He looked at me and just shrugged. His constant motions are for water.
Last night, just after we left, he had a set back. Yeah that desire for water caused him to get up (with 183 1/2 wires & tubes connected), yep, he fell.
Doc said no damage as far as they can see, but it is a little set back. We were hoping for rehab by tomorrow, now they want to observe him until Monday and make that that decision.
(This is Sherry’s Mom & Dad, Susie passed fast (at 61), Wiley did not linger long in illness before he left us (83)
I know most folk who read this blog understand about hospitals and many are intimately familiar with them.
(My mama, and one of my favorite pictures of MY SHERRY. When you are young, you cannot imagine caring for your seniors and loved ones, life is so spontaneous and care free. But This girl and Shirl took care of my mama for a couple years, both lovingly and sweet)
It is raining now, supposed to change to snow, SHOOOOT! Temps are above freezing now I hope they stay. Oh good news, Security told me to run electric from a rest room that is 150 feet away. I have that run but of course it is just enough to keep the refer going and the batt. charged. But that is much better than nothing.
Take care and thanks for coming by the log.
Life is short, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.
Oh a car, I about forgot
Shirl’s Jim and his GEM, a little Isetta, 1955 made by BMW, He was proud of that little thing.
