Welcome! Do NOT bother sending me a PM asking for a discount. I am tired of being scammed by people who are just going to relist an item to rip off their fellow Gaians with a higher price.
Well this week's whining is mostly about me... saw my knee surgeon because my 112lb Weimardoodle hit me square in my incision and I have a dents, and bumps and lots of pain now. Luckily the replacement appliance in my knee is fine, my knee is not. It's definitely injured, so dealing with that. Plus they always take x-rays at every post-op appointment to make sure things are OK but in at least one shot they include both knees. Well my left knee is now totally gone. It's bone on bone just like the right one was. So, I have to start the process to get that knee replaced, though it hasn't been long enough since I had the right knee replaced to go out and do it tomorrow. Which is fine since it's hurting me so much. But then so is the left so what can you do? In horrific pain after spending the day at the hospital. Almost needed to ask for my own bed there.
My husband's grandfather is in the hospital going through the very same thing though he's 40+ years older (good for him, bad for me). He's having his right knee replaced and he was down to bone on bone as well. Happily my sister is in charge of Physical Therapy at this hospital so she's keeping a keen eye on him and his care. Grandma is a big ball of stress so it's really trying to take care of both of them. Even though Papa has EXCELLENT insurance that will pay for people around the clock to come to the house when he's out, Grandma doesn't like all the people in the house. *sigh* So, she's going to end up making herself sick trying to take care of him when she doesn't have to. Very stubborn straight from Germany woman so hard to reason with her... we'll see if she gets too tired and gives in. He will have some people coming, PT, OT and a nurse. But I think if they had someone staying overnight it would be better so she'd sleep and he'd be taken care of. Anyway, that's all my whining for now. Love & hugs, K
Well.... that did not go at all as planned. I got a call in the early afternoon that Papa was in a lot of pain... OK, why not talk to the nurses in the building with you??? But I sent my sister up and broke the speed of light getting over there. We fought with some people to get him some pain meds but no matter what he remained in great pain. Some of his friends showed up later in the evening and he was being pleasant, then he said he needed to pee. We all stepped out and ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. I don't know if sitting up triggered something or what but he became combative. Kept trying to get out of bed, insisted everyone was trespassing in his house. He ended up hitting at LEAST 3 nurses, bit a few, and they finally had to call security to restrain him. Have you ever had a loved one restrained against their will begging you to release them? And then have someone who has been the quietest, sweetest, most charming man in the world turn around and accuse you of killing his wife and restraining him, and calling you every filthy name in the book for not helping him? I know he meant none of it but it is just devastating. My husband packed up to spend the night, I'd been there most of the day. Just got home to sleep, don't know if I can. Want to get back early before Grandma comes... don't want her to see him that way. Hope he is better in the morning... and have no idea what to take to the hospital as an apology to all the people he hit, bit, punched, pinched, etc...Any suggestions?
