I Am Still Standing

Yes, I am still standing not better than I did before but standing.  The first part was so great it reminded me of skipping school there were a lot of prople and well, morphine really helped.  What I did not realize was that I was in ICU but everyone was just so nice even when they took my morphine drip off.  Then comes the dark time regular room.  Amazingly the pain was not as bad as last time but I can have a lot of conflict with nurses.  I know, they are overworked an underpaid.  My sister is a nurse but why do they just get this pleasure out of holding pain pills?  I was so frustrated one day the I finally got mad and asked why they did this.  Then, broke down and cried.  They made me wait an hour.  I finally went to the rehab, it was beautiful but the nurse was so gross when she came to give me my sleeping pills at 7:30pm.  I told her I was going to wait till 10:30 when I could get my pain pills.  At 7:20 pm, I asked for my pain pills and she denied them.  At 10:30 I called her again, she sent this girl into tell me she would be back in 20 minutes with my pills.  I am furious.  At 11:00 I called again she finally showed up a couple of minutes later with my pills her hands were greasy from lotion a retched of onions.  I thought seriously.  I knew if this was a problem the first night.  I was going to struggle everyday.  I called my husband to come pick me up which he did.  I was just so glad to get out of there. This place was beautiful inside and out and the only thing that smelled bad was the nurses hands.  The next day I called the director he was furious no one had even told him.  He apologized and did conduct an investigation.  I got the results with the I don't know what it is called maybe standards of care and were found to have violated at least five.  So, I just want to encourage you to report these misdeeds to the highest person in the facility you might just save some one from getting bad care that can actually lead to further harm.

I did have a minor setback yesterday.  I got extremely dehydrated and it changed my pain level.  I thought something happened, so I went to the hospital.  I went in an ambulance because this bypasses the waiting room but every room was taken, it was freezing in the waiting room and my back was killing me.  The ambulance drivers had taken my stats and said I was more than likely just dehydrated so i just left I was really more scared to get sick so I left.  My doctor called today.  I will see him Monday.  I got a new script because I was seriously low.  I had been trying to get a hold of him to no avail but I posted a bad review on Facebook an within 10 minutes got a call.  Now, if that could just happen on my blog I would be a happy woman.

I will be starting a series called the good, the bad, and the ugly of 2014.   It will be about everything a week long series and not just about nail polish.


Caio,
