Mother called last night at 2:30 a.m. with a blood pressure of 270 over something. She had been to the emergency room last week with high blood pressure. She was left in a room with her monitor going off until it timed out on it own. No one came to check on her until she pushed the bedcart into the door causing a crash! They said they were "busy". Nice work people.
So I am off this morning to travel a few hundred miles and see what I can do for her. I think her primary care doc, her heart doc, and the emergency room people need to be lined up against the wall and . . .well you get the idea.
Dog #1 and Dog #2 can not go on this trip so off to the kennel for them. They Hate It! But I really don't have a choice this time--the Honey has to work long hours today. And I don't know if I'll end up staying up at the hospital or what? Wish me luck with helping mother out :)
