Re: Now Daryl Dad....Today in the Garden


I'd say that's about right. Our healthcare system is the pits.

I still can't believe they send a 92 year old out of the hospital so soon.
That's what came to my mind halfway through your message. Even a 60 yr old should have a little time after something like that. Geez.

The following my be apropos here:

Two patients limp into two different American Medical clinics
with the
same complaint.? Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The first patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the
same day
and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The second sees the family doctor after waiting a week for an
appointment,
then waits eighteen weeks to see a specialist, then gets an
x-ray, which
isn't reviewed for another month and finally has his surgery
scheduled for
6 months from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The first is a Golden Retriever.....

The second is a Senior Citizen.

It's been a long day, but he was doing pretty well when I left a while ago. My sister is staying with him for a couple of days, thank goodness. There was a bit of leakage of the "cement" but fortunately into the muscle, not into the spinal canal, and the Dr. didn't think it would be a problem. He was in recovery longer than anticipated - over 3 hours, but he was lucid and walking a bit before he left.

Unfortunately, he took a small tumble in the bathroom about 15 minutes after we got home, and he's not supposed to bend, twist or lift anything over 8 pounds for a month at least. He landed on the edge of the tub, sitting hard, but didn't land on the floor. I still can't believe they send a 92 year old out of the hospital so soon.

Thanks, all, for asking, and for your prayers.
