Storify of a Surgery.

It’s been a long week. Karin had surgery and was in the hospital for almost four days. To add to that stress her experience was beyond awful. While I didn’t blog or write during the stay I did tweet. Below is the link to a storify story I put together using the tweets I sent during her stay and the instagram photos I posted included in the timeline. Please have a look. It’s multiple pages and storify can take a little while to load but I’ve already written the details in these tweets and I don’t have the energy to figure out how to imbed the story into a wordpress post. If anyone does let me know and I’ll repost.

  1. Sounds like circus. Having spent a lot of time in hospitals waiting for consultants and doctors to come round and then waiting hours for discharge papers I can absolutely sympathize with the frustration. I’m glad you have such and good support team for your family!

  2. My god. That is outrageous and absurd. I only hope you can find some sort of center to move forward with complaints. I worry about the overall stress you’re enduring — anger and frustration are sometimes more horrible than the conditions that provoke them. Sending hugs. And I’m glad that Karin is at home with you guys.

    Down with hospitals.

  3. I will never forget the day I got my nursing pin, 35 years ago. I couldn’t wait to get out there and help people.
    Sadly, several years later, during a shift in a RI hospital that will go unnamed, I experienced, from the staff, so much disrespect, lack of support and downright ignorance, that I made the decision to no longer work in the hospital environment. I went on to use my nursing expertise in other ways. I have never looked back on that decision. I am saddened by the way the health system has gone. I applaud you and Karin in your ability to circumvent this broken institution. My prayers are always with you and your family.
