My dd is suppose to be released from the hospital today. The 3 girls are very anxious for mommy to get home and I have to admit that I am too. lol They were suppose to have done surgery to remove her gallbladder on Mon but, once again, the wonderful staff at the hospital screwed up and it didn't get scheduled. I had chemo on Tues. When I arrived at the office (30 miles from home) there was a message that she was having surgery some time that day. My nurses and the lab were fantastic. They got my chemos ready and I was back at the hospital w/ Cari by 11:00. (I had arrived for chemo at 9:45 and had to see my onco) When I got to the hospital, my dd told me that the surgery was scheduled for 1:00 or 1:30. 5 mins later a nurse comes in to take her to surgery. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I swear that this hospital needs to be audited or shut down. The surgery went fine. The surgeon was a guy that I dated in hs. She was able to eat something and keep it down on Tues for the first time in 11 days.
I want to thank each of you for your prayers and support. I know that I still am on rocky ground w/ her but at least we have the physical problem taken care of. Now to tackle the other.
Gratefully, Deb

Glad you daughter is coming home.  Hospitals do those type of things all the time.  You would think with the control the insurance companies have over them that surgery schedules wouldn't be so messed up. 

I will keep you in my prayers for resolution of the rocky ground situation.

Love and hugs,

One step at a time. I am sure having her home will help from all the running and going. Maybe being so ill will help her change her ways. Hope so. Hugs and prayers, MK

I know what you mean when hospitols make mistakes. When I had my port a cath put in I waited a long time and then they finally came to get me. They had me climb up on the table and then they put all of the sterile dressings around my breast and then they got a call that a large accident happened and they would be needed in ER so they ran my bed back to my room and then left me. It was about 3 hours before I saw anyone again, then I finally had my port a cath put in. It was actually funny watching the nurses running down the hall pushing my bed...I slept until they were ready for me again.

On another note my daughter and I have been at each others throats for years until just this last year we have finally gotten to be friends. She has finally grown up enough to realize that mom is not all bad. We had some very bad fights when she was younger and now we can finally sit in the same room for more than an hour without fighting. I just hope your daughter grows up enough to realize that your advise is good. My daughter calls me all of the time for advice now (I never thought that would happen) it feels good to friends with her.

I will be praying for her and you...
