Vivaldi, Queen of Hearts

(no subject)

My mother is in the hospital again. This time for her kidneys. Some of you will remember a couple years back when she was in the hospital for a week or so because both of her kidneys were blocked.

*sigh* At least it's not her heart, but still. It worries me to see her in there. I get scared.

And of course, it had to happen while she was up visiting me in Peterborough. I wish I didn't have to leave her there, the nurses seem fairly incompetant. A woman was calling for a nurse (who was in the next cubicle thing at the time) and the nurse ignored her and went away. About 10 minutes later the woman was going "Please, will someone get me a nurse..." so I went and found one and told them and she just snipepd at me "Yeah, we know". Well, like another 10 minutes pass and the woman finally gets the attention of a lab tech, who gets the nurse. The woman had had to go to the bathroom, but they wouldn't go to help her., even after I told them. I felt so bad for her when the they had to go in and clean her up, it must have been humiliating for her.

My sis is a nurse, so I understand some patients will scream and carry on and you do have to ignore them, but this woman really needed help. It pissed me off.

But I have to get back to the hospital soon, so I better try to go to bed.

Rawrg. Sorry about ranting on your lists, everyone.
