set to work

In theory my patient will come HOME
from the Hospital tomorrow at noon.
In theory I will be working tomorrow night.
Poor kid has been in since May 22.
He and his Family really need a break.

Not my usual day,
but I want to make sure
they get a good nights sleep
in their own beds.

OUR hospital hallway view . . . construction

1. excised necrotic tissue from Rt. heal
(cut out the dead stuff)
2. unblocked urinary catheter,
(took 3 flushes)
(5 hours of zero urine, suddenly >1000cc out)
3. Now they are going to have to
scope the bladder
(yeah, camera up the you know what)

I am soooo ready to go to work.

Just so I can think about something else for a while.

signed at the end

sign of the times?

Gosh, I hope it wasn't an eviction!

Then there is the stamp collection you inherited . . .
You find out it is only worth the face value of the stamp.

So, you use them . . .

However, since no one is hand cancelling them . . .
most arrive at our house un-cancelled.

So Mom takes out the scissors, glue and . . .

sometimes I actually FEEL for the Post Office,

unwelcome bed

What's wrong with this picture?

this, is actually an improvement . . .
not that it EVER went back to YELLOW!

So, yes,
 We Are Back in the Hospital.
(Happy Father's Day! . . .we do it right!)

sigh . . . try - try - try again

Thank goodness

Dad is still in the Rehab.
      He stand pivots for transfers
      He has taken a step  forward with PT
However . . .
He suddenly thought he could donate blood
       First off,
because of medication this is a . . .
       Second off,
