Do I believe it? There should be “Truth in advertising” rules for some things that the good doctors do.
Outpatient surgery should be relabeled Almost Outpatient Surgery. After a 4 hour outpatient surgery.
“In and out.” Yeah?
Okay, FOUR days later, we are still looking forward to being discharged. Papa Dash has his history of a thrill, where they started yelling “Code Blue!”.
Sister is due into the hospital for surgery tomorrow… ALSO “Outpatient”. Do I stay? Hang out and see if she ends up in the hospital for a few nights? Support the brother-in-law with THREE invalids, and 3 children? (Mama Dash is not doing well, either with a wrenched back.)
We’ll see. I am at their disposal. After I post this, I will write some more fiction.
Papa Dash is feeling spunky, walking around with his IV pole, hitting the bathroom hourly. His kidneys have kicked in full force.
To the MD that figured out that the “Bleeders” that were causing some problems with a bloody mess every hour or so, thank you, the proper idea at the moment stopped all the leaks.
Papa Dash, his dire thirst has come to an end, chapped lips, parched mouth. With Mama Dash’s wrenched back, a poor reaction to narcotics the twenty-four hours before and he did not eat or drink much if anything before he had to fast. PD went into surgery extra dehydrated, then all the excessive bleeding drained him some more. (IV Replacement fluids to blood are not a 1:1 ratio)
Then tonight, they(Nurses) got tired of my talking with Papa Dash after visiting hours and booted me out. 😄 Well, he is hard of hearing so my use of the “Inside voice” doesn’t work.
Anyhow. Back to the task of writing.
Well, not a task, the thrill of writing. It is something I like to do. 🙂
Hope you do, too.
