Another Update

Hey Y'all,
I went to the hospital to see my poor little girl today. They've pumped her so full of fluids that she's very plump, to say the least! Her spirits were much better today and we sneaked Joshua in so she could see him. We had to take the chance while we had it because she won't be coming home for a few days yet. It amazes me how little the people who work there care. I wanted to rub her back so she would feel better and when she turned over, we found 2 large plastic needle covers, 5 gauze pads, paper from several band aids, and the terminal leads for the EKG machine all under her back! Please, that much stuff for her to lay on! It totally shows how much the caretakers take care seriously. What's scary is that this was done by more than one staff person! I really don't like leaving her there all this time. She has been there since Thursday and her husband came in and changed the sheets today! I'm sorry, I should be grateful that there is such a large facility that close to her home that saved her life. Enough said. I brought Joshua home with me. Thanks again for the prayers-don't know what we'd do without them! Thank you for all the sweet emails too. Chat with you soon.

I just read about Kimberli, I'm so sorry and can't believe the stuff they left in her bed to lay on. I will add Kimberli and you all to my prayer list.

OH Liv...that is horrible! I am so aware of stuff like that with my sweet ma ma when she is in. I watch everything like a hawk. You have to...because sometimes NO ONE else there is. Poor thing! I'm so glad you are there where you can see her , check in with her, and help out with Joshua. She's so lucky to have you! HUGS!!!

Hi there, I am glad that Kimberli is feeling much better, A heart attack at 38? now that's scary and I've known people who had heart attacks at similar age too. I hope she's out of the hospital soon, my prayers will be for her.

Send my regards to your lovely daughter and you take care too :)

hugs from malaysia :)
