    Default OT - Kili is...

    ....Feeling much better since she was readmitted to TGH and the doctors undid
    what the nurses so dangerously bungled last time.

    Christy told me they proclaimed they'd removed an 8 centimeter hematoma from
    her left arm.
    When I held up two fingers approximately that distance apart, she said, "No!
    8 Centimeters!"

    I then closed my fingers together and said, "I guess you mean millimeters?"

    She was adamant that they told her it was 8 centimeters.

    At any rate, she was actually able to laugh today. She's far from tip-top
    condition, but I think she's on the right road.

    Thanks to all you decent people. (You know who you are)
    The rest of you may engage me on other newsgroups.

    Do Not Call her with well wishes. She needs rest. When she is home again,
    I'm certain she will share the details of her ordeal with her friends.
    I don't even call her. I wait for her to call me. That way I know for sure
    she's receptive to a phone call.

    She has OCD when it comes to a ringing phone. She'll break her neck to
    answer it. It even perturbs her when I don't answer my phone if it's
    someone I don't want to talk to.
    "Aren't you going to answer that!?"

    "Nope."

    She's got a long way to go, but at least they've undone the damage they
    caused earlier this week.

    I will keep this group updated when I have news.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Alan, thanks so much for the update on Christy. It’s so good to know that
    she’s on the upswing.

    If you can, please give her my love…

    Blessings on you both.

    This is (I think) her favorite newsgroup. A lot of people here have been
    *MORE* than supportive. I think a lot of some of the regular posters. An
    occasional update doesn't break my back.

    What does bother me is the many who say, "Why aren't you staying with her?"

    Could it be the 5 animals we have at home to take care of? Could it be that
    pesky job I have? Could it be the fact that TGH doesn't allow *any* visitor
    to stay past 8 p.m.? Could it be the fact that it would be pointless for me
    to stay in a hotel in downtown Tampa overnight just to be "close" to her?

    Those in this group who've been in a hospital lately may understand.

    End of rant. Thanks for your support.

    LOL!!!

    You should get her an answering machine for Christmas.... one where you
    can turn the ringer volume off, and all calls go to the machine. Then
    she can sort through them whenever she's feeling better.

    Christ, there's some incompetent butchers around!! We have our share
    here, as well :-(


    Tell her I'll have a couple glasses of bubbly this afternoon for her
    rapid recovery from this latest saga.


    And then, I'll have a couple slugs of Tequila for you ;-P


    Do you have access to Christy's email??

    Also, how'd you go with that TEN's machine thingy for your back??

    Pay no attention to the idiots behind the curtain! No one could have a
    more devoted, caring, and loving husband than Christy has in you.

    They clearly don’t understand all the issues, and obviously don’t even get
    it when you’ve already explained it.

    Christy is in good hands, both in the hospital and when she’s with you.

    Thank you for the update. I've been rather busy with my concerns about my
    mother but I still wish Christy all the best. I hope she continues to
    improve.

    I know all about medical mishaps. The hospital lost my mom's dentures (the
    lower ones) even though they were in a red cup right next to her bed. I saw
    them in that red cup, in her room. I specifically asked where her lower
    plate was and they showed them to me. In the red denture cup.

    When the ambulance transported her back home I got a bag of her stuff. It
    contained the red denture cup - the empty red cup. WTF happened to her
    lower plate?! They have no clue. I did get some guy's "hoodie" zip-up
    sweatshirt, size Large, which certainly didn't belong to my mother.
    Hospitals suck. The also lost (never recorded) her Healthcare POA and DNR
    which I also handed over to them. It's ridiculous.

    People say stoopid things without knowing any of the details, just to

    I haven't been in the hospital lately, but AFAIC nobody needs to baby
    sit me while I'm there. It's boring enough being the one
    incarcerated, why make someone else miserable too? Being connected by
    phone is fine by me.

    They damaged her veins to the point they had to do a PICC
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periphe...ntral_catheter

    The first time she was in TGH, I saw this procedure done. A lot of work,
    but the nurse pulled it off without a hitch and Christy barely flinched.

    Then she was released and sent home a few days after that.
    Barely home for a week, her PCP (primary care physician) called and said it
    was urgent that she go to the ER at TGH and be admitted.
    After she was admitted they attempted to do another PICC. I was not there
    to witness the procedure this time. Evidently they used a small monkey on
    crack. Her arm swelled up to almost the size of her leg and became
    infected.

    Realizing they had ****ed something up, they had that one pulled and went
    straight into the carotid artery (I think).

    When the arm situation got worse the next day, they pulled that jackass
    maneuver of discharging her at night and sending her home in a cab. (Here's
    where people start asking, "Why didn't you go pick her up?")

    I have developed quite the cataract in my right eye. The one that had the
    nail shot through it in 1991 or so.
    I have 20/200 vision in that eye. Probably worse but that's as low as the
    scale goes.
    At any rate, it's physically not possible for me to drive in the dark. What
    appears as a pinpoint of light to my left eye is a huge glowing orb in the
    right. Oncoming headlights are especially fun!
    I've been fitted with corrective lenses (glasses) that help a little in the
    daylight, but do nothing at night. The doctor who examined me recommended
    surgery first, but I simply can't afford it.

    Back to Christy...
    When she got home I took one look at her and said, "What the Hell did they
    send you home for?"
    She had no idea. When the sun came up the next morning I had her back in
    the ER at a local hospital.
    They kept her there all day doing X-rays and other tests. Then they sent
    her back to TGH where they performed the surgery that saved her from
    impending amputation.

    Yes, there is a lawsuit in there somewhere. Any attorneys here?

    So that's where we are.

    It's not about being miserable, it's about having responsibilities other
    than sitting in a hospital doing nothing but consuming air and taking up
    space.
    But thanks for understanding.
