I forget what categories I used for my medical ranting. I’m putting this post under Share Your World & What Fresh Hell is This? I’m exaggerating though, the hell is stale, groundhog day variety hell. Not even remotely fresh but still pure D fuckery all the same. MoMo is back in the hospital. I have no idea what number of admissions she is on now. She can’t keep on this way though. Something’s gotta give.
She falls or slips or something. B, who is not a nurse, rushes over to pick her up. Big, strong guy, who can always lift her. But, he could hurt her too. Sometimes, you aren’t supposed to move people who have fallen. And it’s not that he doesn’t want to help her. He’s just not trained for providing the right kind of care. Jesus he’s been running over there in the middle of the night for going on two years. Not every night but enough times to know something must be done.
The EMT from this recent episode was an asshole. Sorry to be blunt. Not saying all EMTs are assholes but this guy talked to our PoPo like he was an idiot. Our PoPo is the most gentle, kind human being you’d ever meet. When God was passing out goodness, he gave PoPo a lion’s share. Why’d you even call me? EMT says. Her knee injury is obviously weeks old. What’s so urgent here? Well another MRI showed another stroke. That’s what’s so urgent asshole!
No status update beyond she’s admitted. For how long, no one knows. Sadly, her in the hospital is better for everyone. She is safe. At home, everyday/everynight was a gamble.
And now we wait.
As always, more to come.
