He's had the vent tube out for a few days now, but now the dr.'s are
claiming that he has to have a rate of 96% to get out of the hospital.
I think it would be almost impossible for him to be completely off oxygen,
as he had to have it at home before all this started. The doctors apparently
told my grandpa that he would have to have a trach tube put it. My dad, who
has power of attorney, told them no. (for various reasons I won't go into.)
The hosptial is claiming that he is fully alert and aware and is able to
make decisions for himself. So if he says to put in the trach tube, they
will. Well, he's *not* in his right mind, really. Yesterday evening, he
asked my dad why my grandma hadn't been there all day. She was there that
afternoon, like every afternnoon. He didn't remember. Yeah, he's able to
make his own decisions...Unbelieveable
So, my dad is apparently having a lawyer ready in case the doctors decide
to override the power of attorney. I would too.
So, I haven't slept much, am mentally and physically tired, and just want to
I really want to do something beady, but I'm at the point were I just don't
know where to start. I've been thinking about that piece of glass I found. I
didn't even have the mental energy to go through Sooz's list to look for
matching seeds. (I tried, but gave up. Just couldn't do it) So I guess if I
decide to still do the seed thing, I'll find a color that compliments it, or
something. I don't know.
I'm about to run away for awhile-beads in hand. Just disappear and do my own
thing. Can I scream now? LOL.
