Sorry for not doing this sooner, and for those that already know, thanks for your kind message.
Bill had an appendectomy Wednesday night.
Ugh, there were complications and yet they SENT HIM HOME on Friday morning.
Likely it's because I have a reputation for good care-skills, but really I have no formal training as far as having official schooling when it comes to appendectomies.
They promised a home care nurse Saturday to check his vitals, shunt, drain collection etc, and never showed. Apparently they decided Monday would be fine and, well, this is one of the few times I truly became angry.
lol, they've been getting an earful from me today. (Just wait til I tell his specialist surgeon on Tuesday). I imagine some bureaucratic heads are going to get loudly knocked together.
Bill and I also have private insurance, but they were worse. Cash up front as the deductible is huge before coverage. Nice. So much for insurance.
Apologies for not posting; it's been rather intense around here.
Other than all the above, he's managing nicely - thankfully I have no gross button, so am able to deal with things and keep him clean and his 'attachments' operational and disinfected.
Update: Looks like getting a little angry but remaining calm worked. A nurse is coming today, Sunday.
PS Happy Easter, Happy Spring, and Happy Passover!
