New thread for all of us. Feel free to post your trying events.
If you were here in 2017, you know I had some bad-life events going on. It sorta doused some of my cat-joy. Even getting a new bed became a comedy of errors.
So let me catch you up on this week’s ““OMG!!!””
My friend had a hip replaced in Nov. She has other medical problems that make surgery unwise. In Nov she did not “come back” from anesthesia for a WEEK. Complicated story and given my past occupation, I worry about her.
So she stopped over on Monday. She calls me from outside, saying she fell and needs an ambulance! The EMTs just “pulled” her up to sitting and walked her to the gurney.
ER says she broke her clavicle and rib. Oh geez, just what she needed! AND, they sent her HOME-- where she couldn’t take care of herself easily from Nov on. They should have admitted her!
Now, pain pills, not able to get up easily, no helper at home, etc. does not sit well with me. Seniors can get pneumonia with just one or two days of being “down”. As it was this morning Weds , her (male) upstairs roomer had to call an ambulance to help put her into bed because she fell out of bed and he could not lift her or help her up.
So if I have seemed “off” for some months, forgive me. If I’ve missed things in the forum, I’m sorry. If I haven;t seemed much of a chipper cat or joking, I do regret that. Life can’t get much worse than 4 deaths since July, and 2 others who “almost died” but recovered, a bed fiasco, and annoying house stuff like frozen pipes… and upstairs stomping so hard last week that they knocked a light fixture right out of the ceiling in my kitchen… and oh I dunno, but there had to be more that I forget now.
It’s gotta get better, right???
