July 13 Part II

So on to Part II
Discharge happened on 7/18 in the afternoon. She was released with an infection in her leg and with oral meds to treat. She went to her primary care physician two days later. Primary doc says to father in law you should be ok to care for her. Just keep the bandages clean and make sure she takes her meds. FIL says Ok if you say so. He does the best he can not realizing how hard it is to take care of her. He calls the Dr the next Monday 6 days after release from hospital and says I need help. I can't do this. Dr. says bring her in Thursday. Once again they go in to the office and finally he gets the assistance he needs to care for his wife. A Physicans Assistant from a non-surgical hospital. She comes every other day to see her and make sure that all is well. After a week the leg is not healing, and the wound where the incision is just happens to be getting worse even after being on antibiotics for the leg infection. The PA says she needs to go back to the hospital 7/27 . So in she goes to the Emergency Department. Released the next day. Just an infection we will up the antibiotics that are clearly not working. You see they had her records and how she behaved and did not want her back in the hospital. Bastards. That was their second mistake. The PA still came every other day and did the best she could to help.

Tomorrow Part III

enjoy life!
