Donna at Rehab.

After spending all day waiting for the Hospital to decide to discharge Donna about 03:30PM she was ready to go, On the way out of the hospital, I got my foot tangled up in a carpet and took a header, Donna’s laptop which I was carrying went crashing to the floor. I was sore, but I said no to be taken to the emergency room and told them I just want to get my wife to rehab. Luckily besides a crack in the case and a bent USB plug the laptop is in working order,

We got to Delmar Gardens and I went in to tell them I would need someone with a wheel chair with oxygen to come out and get her,the receptionist said someone will be right out. 20 minutes later the girl came out with the wheelchair and no oxygen, we got to the room and their  was a big tank but no cannula or key to turn it on.It took forever to finally get that straightened luckily it was just before her little tank ran out. She is in room 108. I stayed until around 06:00PM and then she said I might as well go her supper which was due at 5pm hadn’t arrived yet. Because I was really sore from my fall, I went on Home and skipped supper had a couple of beers and Tylenol, and went to bed.

Not much else to report, Hope all is well with all our friends out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. You both have had a real bad run lately hope things improve soon. If your not doing well tomorrow get yourself checked out. I hope they removed the offending carpet

  2. Geesh...you two have 'been through the ringer' lately. Hopefully Donna's rehab will be speedy and she will be home soon! You guys keep your chins up and we are praying for you both.

  3. OMG, Sam...Please be careful..those carpets and rugs are killer to trip over..Sounds like Donna should be put in charge of that rehab..she could sure snap things into shape!!! Hugs to you both...and praying for Donna to get better and home soon!!

  4. Add me to those who hope Donna doesn't have to stay in rehab for long. I don't like to go anywhere near any kind of medical facility these days! Please be careful - falling is one of the worst things that can happen to people of a certain age - I'm getting terrified of it and know my balance isn't what it was.
