Stop the world I want OFF
The saga of LVH (or the hospital I was in for a coma and a few strokes)

Well, it seems that after two weeks out of the hospital for the broken hip (a few months after the stroke she had after mine) Gerri is back in with bleeding on the brain. At least she is out of ICU now.
And if that is not enough now another friend was airlifted to the same hospital because she was throwing up blood from a prior surgery. She was home for two hours. Her hemoglobin count is up right now and seems stable. But she continues to be on a breathing tube which they are hoping to remove soon. Not being able to talk has really upset her. She is stubborn (a good quality in my book) and has tried to rip it out a few times (I tried the same thing) so they had to restrain her (I had to wear velcroed mittens but learned how to pull those off with my teeth)
So you can guess where I'll be the next few days. And I vowed to NEVER go back to the hospital (except for the various doctor appointments. But no rest for the wicked. AAARRRGH! I hate this.

Well, that's wonderful!

Everything else is sucky. I hope Gerri and the other friend recover soon and completely. Blood hell!
