That’s where we all snored the night away until almost 6 a.m.
The doctor made her rounds between 8 and 9 a.m. I had called Gill and he was going to try to meet me at the hospital to talk to the doctor. I really didn’t know what I would be walking into this morning, but I didn’t really expect to see that much of a change from the night before.
While waiting for the rescue squad, the hospital case manager came in and told me she would be having a home health agency contact me so that I would have some assistance in caring for him. They knew Riley’s aversion to bathing and knew I needed help at that area – at least. I was extremely happy to hear it. I was also told that I might be able to get assistance from the Veterans Administration since Riley was considered a Viet Nam vet, there may be programs open to him that we didn’t know about until now. Wow! More useful information – this hospital overnight was turning out to be a pretty good deal.
