an angry tone

Father is in a Rehab. Nursing Home. 
No diagnosis.
Day by day, Hour by hour,
his situation changes.
Energy, Mood, Attitude, and Cognition . . .
swing from
one extreme
to another.

Expected to go to work tonight . . .
got a call . . .
my Patient is back in the hospital.
(my three days off . . . what happened!)
I want him better & I want him home,
where I get to take care of him.

It's amazing how fast a three day weekend can fly right by.

I hope your Dad is better soon, but I also hope you get a bit of rest while he's in rehab. You deserve a little caregiver respite.

Oh, wow.
I certainly hope and pray that things improve!
