My friend/"mother" was discharged from hospital on May 3rd on from hospital at 6:p.m. she met the home health care nurse on Friday, the home health care nurse, she came has 18 years experience in i.c.u. for the same health care system on Saturday at 11:30 am, looked at her medically speaking and called paramedics. She was in E.R. from 12 pm at 12:20am she managed to call me to let me know what's going on and at 3:15 am she finally got a room. She was admitted because of the following reasons, the TPTB at the hospital discharged her without checking to see if she was able to walk with or without a walker, giving her a bunch of perscriptions she couldn't financially pay for, and she had a lung infection. Thanks for your participation in this and no, its not the U.K. this U.S.A

I'm thinking she was probably uninsured. Horrible to be treated like that regardless.

Thank you for the kind words and thoughts. I is hard getting old. I don't think I'll have anyone for myself later on in years, but then you never know. I'm just glad that I can help her as much as I can. She really is when feeling in the pink a warm, kind hearted person.
Her husband was the extrovert, and would literally have given you the shirt off his back, if he thought it would help you, big softie that he was. I tend to be somewhat reserved around new people, this site is helping me to I am better at writing, until I get to know them self-conscious I guess, but am getting better, she's fine once you get to know her, but at first somewhat reserved. So, we have that in common.
I'm learning there's still nice people out there in this harsh world.

I have an older friend whose husband was the star, but she adjusted and now she is a star in her own right. She is in her 90's and can run circles around me. lol She moved to be closer to her daughter, and I miss her all the time. Older people make great friends if your open to the experience.

I agree with you. Older people tend to accept you for what and who you are and are more forgiving, at least its been my experience.

My friend's great aunt came here to visit us in our small apartment last year, she is 93 years old and went to Panama on a cruise with her live- in "boy" friend. She can run rings around me also. My grandmother who lived to be 92 used to always say your only as old as you feel.
