An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 18 January 2011
It’s been a positively dreary day! Yeah…constant drizzle will make a lousy day even worse, won’t it! I shouldn’t complain. It could have been snowing!
While standing around waiting for the evening cattle call (ICU visitation), an orderly wheeled in one of THOSE types of gurneys. You know the kind….covered, so no one can see. Kind of creeped me out. Wasn’t the first one of that sort I’ve ever seen, but when it’s heading towards the same direction you are….
However, the Mr is progressing nicely. Well, at least that’s what the nurses are telling me. I guess they would know, right? I was also told he MIGHT be moved out of ICU into a real room tomorrow. I have my doubts, but hey…what do I know. I’m just seeing a guy all wired up, drugged out of his mind, for 20 minutes, 3 times a day. Needless to say, he’s not a happy camper.
I have yet to see his doctor. It would be nice to actually talk to the guy who was poking around in my husband’s innards. sigh… Well, maybe tomorrow? One can only hope.
Well, yeah. Of course it will! DUH! Other than the fact the Mr is in the hospital, again, I don’t have a whole lot to say, nor the time to say it if I did!
I only got to see the Mr for a few minutes after he came out of surgery, and was put in the surgical ICU. The doc said it was a bit more complicated than they had anticipated, but he did come through ok. He’s going to be in a great deal of pain for a while, cuz anytime they cut on ya, and take stuff out, it’s going to be a process. Boy, is he gonna be grumpy!
All the crap that Vanderbilt said and did, was a total waste of time and money. NOTHING they “thought”, was right, from what I’ve been able to understand. So, they put him through hell, when they could have fixed the problem months ago. Am I pissed? Oh, you bet’cher bippy I am! If I knew who to rip a new one, believe me, I’d be gearing up! But…what’s done is done. I need to let it go!
Until he is moved into a regular room, I’ll get a whopping 20 minutes at a time to see him. Which, of course, leaves a great deal of time for me to fill. One nice thing about Jackson….there are a LOT more stores to choose from than Podunk. I could use some new sneakers. How ’bout a new computer? Naw…he’d kill me. Heh. And there’s always the one store that sells my favorite vitamins. PLUS, Macy’s, and Kohl’s, and Belk’s, and….. Ok ok ok. I WILL try to behave m’self.
