So, reference my convo with SWMBO’s Doc yesterday: St. Michael’s Hospital in Silverdale won’t let my see my dieing wife, Social Media posts, etc.
Well, today her Doc talked to her about “probably” transferring her to a facility in Tacoma that specializes in pulmonary rehab and wouldn’t that be great to go to!? Truthfully, she doesn’t need to be in the hospital for covid anymore; but still needs the high flow O2 to keep her blood O2 up. So, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea. And supposedly (sorry: subposibly) they do specialize in pulmonary.
But, Tacoma? I hate driving to/thru Tacoma. With a passion. When we go on trips that take us towards Portland I always go through Shelton and Olympia instead of Tacoma. Driving through Tacoma is like getting to a throat via the anus.
AND there still may be a “No Visitors” rule at the new place. But, St. Michael’s would rather I bothered the other place than them.
However, one wonders if this decision was because I was getting pushy about being able to actually visit my wife and made some pretty serious “threats?”
I still believe St. Michael’s No Visitors rule is there just because it’s easier for them. Fuck the patients and their families. We don’t want to deal with it. One of the things they told me through their actions is that even they believe masks don’t work. Think about it.
We’ll see what happens. As long as SWMBO gets better and gets home I’m okay with whatever needs to be done.
Did make a trip to the hospital today to drop some things off for her. Nail clippers being one. The low level employee at the greet desk told me “We don’t accept nail clippers!” I told her she’d better check with whom ever she needed to check with cause I was told to bring them down. She had me see a slightly higher low level employee who called the nurse on the floor and asked her about it. All I said was “I was told to bring them down and drop them off.”
Nurse from the floor said she’d be right down. And she was. Took the plastic bag with the stuff for SWMBO NQA. I didn’t mention to anyone that it was SWMBO who told me to bring them down. Joke ’em if they can’t take a fuck.
Got caught in traffic on the way home. 1430 and traffic. Don’t you people have jobs!?
Baked tater topped with chili, chopped onions, and Mexican 4-cheese for dinner. Someday I’ll make someone a great wife. Probably out of crushed aluminum cans cause I have a butt-ton of those.
