Things Are Not The Way They Should Be!

I have a friend who has an elderly friend and companion on a stay in Mackenzie Health Center.  He is this person's caregiver.  This person has a right arm brace provided by a fore mentioned Health Center.  My friend; who tries to visit their friend patient 4312 in bed 4, says the health care specialists are treating them too roughly and improperly.  My friend has no access to '4312' and the hospital staff has made it impossible for them to visit the patient.  All the caregiver and friend wants is to be able to protect '4312' and get them released to their own doctor.

Patient 4312 originally went to Mackenzie for a seizure on April 6 of 2013.  Up to this past weekend, the "health care specialists" inserted a catheter several times before it worked properly and an IV was not efficiently inserted in the patients arm either.  Their caregiver got barred for being a compassionate person with training and experience.  They just wanted the nurses to not be so rough with '4312' and hear what they had to say.

The caregiver believes the patient needs to be discharged so they can go home.  They don't need hospital care anymore as admitted by their own doctor.  Nurses, the family doctor, social worker, and physiotherapist all will visit the patient regularly as they did in the past and the patient and caregiver live together in a common residence.

I just have one thought going around in my brain right now.  I want the bad weather to go away from now till the end of November.  I want to go to the park regularly with my lady, Ruth. I want some lots of walking and fresh air.  Hope it comes soon and that the Creator of everything lets everything grow and flourish.   That is all I got to say.

Easter Weekend

This past Easter weekend was lovely!  The Tenebrae Service on Friday was very impressive and it made Easter Sunday all the more joyful!  My faith as been bolstered considerably.  Thank you RHCC Service Team.

I wore the 'Easter Bonnet' that I bought and Ardelle decorated.  It matched my new blouse to a 'T'.  I really appreciate having such a talented friend.  Prior to the Easter Service everyone had a lovely breakfast together which included a lot of eggs; coloured and plain.

I hope that this Spring supplies us all here at the house with renewed energy so we can enjoy living.

I don't know much about Easter except I got some nice nibbles of ham on Monday.  But Ruth told me that the Lord made all the creatures here on earth including me so I guess Spring is a good time for this doggie too!  I won't get my grooming done till this coming Friday as Mom cancelled the one for March 29 as it was Good Friday.  I am looking forward to seeing my groomer then.
