I feel for you Dee! When my father was in the hospital after getting hit by a car 4 yrs ago,he was so bitchy.I was there every day for hours and he tried to make me feel guilty for going home to get some rest and pick on some food.The nurses called me their assistant b/c while I was there they appreciated me helping them with him. If he didn't get soup for lunch every day,he made me go in search of soup.Well the guy next to me got soup,why didn't I.It was even worse when we admitted him to a rehab facility because he hadn't walked or moved for 3 months and the physical therapy dept refused to perform it saying that they only treated people on their floor.It was the worst hospital in the world,but the ICU where my dad was most of the time was the absolute best!Be strong dear friend!

Well Chuck had another stroke this morning... I didn't call 911 right away, as he seemed to come around... Aide came at 10 to bathe him but he refused going to the tub, so she washed in the living room on the recliner. At 11:30 the RN Home care nurse came, and we (I) told her what happened (she'd called earlier and I filled her in)... after taking his vitals, listing to what I observed and listening to Chuck trying to talk, she strongly advised we call 911. I had an appointment for him at the docs office at 2 and RN called an explained what was going on... so I packed up the meds, water (for me) and misc other things knowing it would be a long day and called 911. Not just one EMS ambulance this time but a hook and ladder fire truck... I asked if I should serve brunch LOL but they tool me the truck crew always responds when it's a stroke. Buy 1:15 we were at the hospital and stayed in ER until 8 pm when his hospital room was ready. Did another c-scan while in ER and will be followed up with another MRI in the morning. Funny, I keep thinking I hear him in the living room. The doctor that saw him in ER today was one our docs when he was in the hospital 8 days ago... he said he would fight harder to get him into a rehab facility (and quietly said "don't walk") That was the downfall.... as the report to the insurance company said he walked 250 ft in the hospital... really? I Think our family doctor, Home Health Care and the Docs at the hospital are on board with doing everything possible to get him into rehab... in the meantime, I'm seeing a few days in the hospital. I can't be an effective or safe care giver, as getting him up has become next to impossible.

I made a boo boo... it was Thurs he had the stroke at home... to the hospital, then Friday night, another stroke....No he speaks in guttural sounds... just can't get the words out. Lots of med stuff going on and hopefully by Wed, we'd be sent to rehab... Doc assured me this time he would be admitted, as there is no way he can go home with me and home health care.... On my way back to the hospital now... I go for a few hours in the morning, take a 3 hour break at home, and back for 2-3 hours in pm... We play "words" and he gets so tired out he falls asleep. I kissed him goodbye this afternoon but he didn't wake, so left a Love Note on paper and laid it on his chest.
