Joppette Posted September 2, 2011 Share Posted September 2, 2011 Hi All, It's 4:00AM and the clouds are booming, and rain is pouring down. It's supposed to be very humid, hot and nasty today. I'll take it since it's the last hurrah of summer. No complaints. Today (or yesterday) as you look at it was a bear. We had to fight hard to get him transferred to the other hospital. At first they said it couldn't happen. When we made it VERY CLEAR that if it didn't happen there would be very negative results, all of a sudden, they contacted "legal counsel" to see if they could accomodate us. Of course they did. He is being transferred to the other hospital today. We got a feeding tube in last night to get him some nourishment, and today, after the transfer will get a better feeding tube put in. I can't believe what a fight it was to get him the care he needs. I'm amazed at how accomodating they were once they realized we were serious about all of this and would not accept their diagnosis and treatment solution. How sad that we have to fight to have our loved ones cared for properly. But how good that we fought and got the job done. I hope you all see from this that we do not have to accept what a doctor says. We can say "NO" and mean it. Anyway, I'm exhausted after the big day today. My niece told me to take today off. We got the job done, and tomorrow I'll visit him in his new digs. Annette, I'm so sorry you are going through tough times. I wish I could make it better for you. Steph, I wish I could take your pain and side effects for you. It sounds like you are going through a terrible time. Know I am thinking of you and praying for healing and health for you. Hi to everyone else. I'm going back to bed to sleep (I Hope). The thunder boomers are loud, but I'm going to try to ignore them. Hugs and love to you all.
