Ann Posted February 19, 2010 Share Posted February 19, 2010 I am so upset and needed to vent, so here I am!!! As I posted earlier, it was all set up that my husband was going to a rehab facility near my house. I was so relieved that he was doing well and was going to be close home. As of last night at 9:30, everything was a go. Well, he just called me and told me that he's not going to rehab and is being sent home today. I just don't believe this!!! Don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to having him home...when he's ready. The nurse said he is walking too well this morning and doesn't need to be in rehab. So....that's the way it's going to be!!! What has me upset is that there is still a ton of things to get ready at my house before I bring him home. He has to have medical equipment delivered. When I talked to the nurse, she had a very "don't give a S***" attitude when I asked her when this would be delivered and answered me "oh...maybe today." Well, unfortunately we are not wealthy and I have to work for a living. Was someone just going to show up at my house and assume that someone would be home? Also, We have a golden retriever and this is going to be an issue in addition to the fact that I have to go to work or I don't get paid!!! Of course, she stated that none of these were "medical issues." So, I'm so upset and angry that I'm literally shaking. My husband has Medicare since retirement and in addition, we pay a lot of money every month for supplemtal insurance through a private carrier. But...I have a feeling this is all about the insurance. Now...the pity party part. Since Tuesday, I have been up at 6:00 every day, working and then going to the hospital and staying until late. Then, I go home, do what chores I have to do and finally fall in bed after midnight. I was looking so forward to maybe having a couple of hours this weekend to just rest. Now, I'm automatically thrust into the position of going home after work and beginning my second job as a nurse!!! I'm really not complaining about taking care of my husband....just so tired that I'm ready to collapse and am sitting here in tears. How could he be walking so much better since last night that would cause this sudden change in plans??? Also, he's on Coumadin and has to have blood work every other day. How am I going to keep my job and manage to take him for this??? Thanks for listening. Ann Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
