So, our nurse tonight isn't the best we've had. She's been ignoring our pages. I wanted to get Randy cleaned up and changed (he only has his shirt on from yesterday when he crashed and a gown). He hadn't been cleaned up really at all. So, the plan was after he got meds and they started working, I would change his shirt and gown and wash him up. Well, I couldn't change his shirt without his worthless nurse unhooking his IV. When she finally stopped ignoring us, she came in and unhooked him. He was a happy boy getting all the road grime off!!! I helped him stand up (which isn't as easy at the PTs make it look), he brushed his teeth just standing next to his bed and then stood there for a minute to just stretch. The PTs don't want him to walk without them, so he just stood there, not bearing any weight on his left leg, for as long as he could without falling down. So, we paged the nurse to come in and hook him up, guess what? She ignored us again. I'm a little tired and under quite a bit of stress. I don't think she wants to play with me tonight. What happens when he needs new pain meds? Are we gonna be ignored THEN? When she finally came in, I asked her politely if she was really busy tonight. She said yes. Then I informed her that SHE needs to keep him on his pain schedule and she shouldn't ignore him anymore. I think she took the hint!!! I am waiting for someone to unleash on, she could be my first victim if she doesn't shape up!!! Anyhoo.... I have all the lights off now, he's a tired man.
A lot of you have asked about me. I am ok. That's all I will commit to. I don't know what the hell I'm doing. Who pays the mortgage if your husband can't work? THAT.... is freaking me out a little. I'm not gonna think about it. I will take this one day at a time and let our lawyer help us and try to not get too stressed out about anything. Well, that's the plan at least!!!
Enough complaining, I have a lot to be thankful for. My husband should be dead and instead I get to listen to him sleeping peacefully. It's a wonderful sound. He feels really bad for crashing, even though it was no fault of his own. I think he is feeling like he's letting our family down. I had to remind him that it's through our trials that we gain strength. He's had a lot of visitors today, which he appreciates every single one. You know he's a social man. I think he's really digging my friends that are coming in to check on him!!! It's been a full day and I'm WIPED!!! So, say a prayer for our nurse that she doesn't die tonight!!!
Love you all!!! Nighty night!!!
