What the....

I get so ticked with people lately. You know the ones. The idiots. The ones that think that the whole freakin' world revolves around them. The ones that lie and cheat through life.

Why am I so riled up? Well, because one of them is trying to mess with my kid. And nothing ticks me off more than when they play dirty with my kids!

Kari got a call to babysit two kids. She couldn't make it so she told the lady that Kat could do it. Well, she quoted her the price and confirmed it with the lady. When Kat gets to the house, the lady rushes out the door and tells her that the kids are watching TV in the other room. Well, when Kat goes in the room, there are THREE kids. She does not charge the same for THREE kids. I told her that when the lady comes home, if she pays her for 2, to nicely explain that she charges more for 3 kids. (Although I wouldn't be so nice about it.) The lady is loaded. There is no reason for this.

Don't try to scam my kid or I'll beat you up!

This & That

I posted these on FB and I figured I'd post on here too. You're welcome.

First, I'll show you my super famous self.

This guy was caught painting graffiti on a wall.

Then I found where he got his inspiration.

Then we see this near Time Square. Queen of Target at last!

And finally, OMG!... Vicky who?

And now for my favorite video of the week:

I have been lost in real life lately. Oh, and in Facebook-land as well. That FB is a tad bit addicting! So today, they are releasing my step-dad from the hospital. As is the case, in way too many hospitals, he was misdiagnosed. I mentioned last time that they concluded that it was apnea. After a week in the hospital they decided that it was his kidneys. So after a WHOLE week, they started him on dialysis. A week with all that waste in his body. Geez. The medical world gets scarier & scarier every day. I get it first hand from Danny. He deals with it every day.

He's the first on the scene. He keeps them alive (when possible) for the doctors. Doctors that consider him simply as transport. Case in point. He calls in a heart attack on the way to the hospital. They arrive. No doctor. No nurse. No one meets them. Just as an FYI, according to most hospitals, they claim that they will have you in a cath lab within an hour of the onset of a heart attack. Anyhoo, D tracks down an ER md and he looks at the reading and decides that it is not a reliable readout. Puts the guy in a room to get another reading. Wait some more. They come in to get the reading. They hook him up. Oh yeah, looks like heart attack. Oh crap, it's getting worse. An hour has passed since rescue reported that they were coming in with a HEART ATTACK. The doctor never called the cath team. Now they have to wait for the cath lab. Time is of the essence. Time is the difference between life, death & the quality of life. But whatever...

Ooops, I fell off the soapbox

Just comparing

This is soooo funny and so true! While I watched the movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons, I could not help but notice the similarities. But I thought that it was just me. Just so you know, I liked both movies.
Be sure to shut down my iPod on the right so you can hear the clip.

Last night, after over 60 hours after being admitted, we finally got some answers from the hospital. My diagnosis seems to be 100% spot on and I'm not even getting paid for my opinion. I dn't know if I mntioned what happened. My mom woke up and found my step-dad clammy & unresponsive. He uses a c-pap but it was off. She called 911, and performed CPR. Rescue arrived and transported to the hospital. He was concious and breathing upon arriving at the hospital, yet they still sedated and intubated. They suggested kidney failure, heart failure and stroke before actually doing any tests. I suspected apnea. After 2 1/2 days in ICU, they came to the conclusion that it was apnea. Which is nothing to be taken lightly.

While waitiing in the waiting room, I listen in overhear conversations between other family members. All of them were saying that their family member(patient) was sedated & intubated. Which leads me to believe that if you arrive at this hospital on a weekend, be prepared to be intubated until Monday, or die. Reminds me a little of that old 70"s movie, "Coma". Anyhoo, needless to say, I do not like this hospital.

Sleep Apnea is nothing to lay around with. Which is why I have been after Danny to get a sleep study done. Not only to avoid being kicked out because of his snoring, but for his health as well. Maybe this will be a wake up call.

I HATE hospitals!

The worst time to be in a hospital is on weekends. My step-dad was taken by rescue at approximately 6AM Saturday morning. As of right now, 42 hours after being admitted, they still don't have any answers for us. He has been intubated since he arrived but they have him sedated because he tries to pull the stuff out. Why? because he can breathe on his own. No real reason for intubation, except maybe just waiting for Monday morning. Since I'm ranting, I will rant about insurance & doctors as well. He's been seen by his group of doctors for over 10 years. Since this was an emergency, he was taken to the nearest hospital. Not our choice and not where his doctors are on board. My mom calls his doctors and they say that there isn't anything that they can do since the insurance will not pay them since they are not affiliated with that hospital. OK, all she is asking as that maybe they can give the hospital his medical history with them and maybe, just maybe give her some reassurance. As soon as he's stable we plan on moving him to our prefered hospital but in the meantime, can they just toss us a bone??? Geez.

Rant over. For now.
