Back in Hospital

Donna is back at St Joseph’s Hospital again, they discovered her blood counts were dangerously low, also her iron level. When I went to visit yesterday she was getting her second transfusion, will probably need one more before she leaves, Don’t know if she will be going to rehab or not seems Medicare is balking on the cost, Doctor said if not he will try to arrange home care. Either way in one way I would like rehab to continue to the point she is walking without trouble,in the other I would like her home with me. After the flu last week and this setback I am exhausted, however I will do my best to make visits and help as much as I can. I will cut this short so I can get a nap, haven’t heard from Donna yet today, but I got her laptop over to her yesterday so now she can communicate again, yesterday she was out of touch because her phone ran down. Hope all our friends are doing a lot better than us. Be safe Sam & Donna..

  1. Hang in there, Sam...Home Health Care just might be the answer...I hate it, but it seems once you turn 65, you are disposable...awful way to treat we "elders"....

  2. I am so sorry to hear of this setback. And with your bout with the flu, I'm sure it seems worse to you. Hopefully Donna will improve once she is in the hospital.

  3. I am so sorry Sam. Medicare has become a nightmare but home health care is really wonderful. Take care of yourself.

  6. Sorry to hear of this set back. Wishing you both some rest and better health. Maybe Donna would do better at home with the health care set up and them visiting her at home. this way you can both get some much needed rest.
