A Whole Lot of Blue

My Mom and Dad's house is that.
Everywhere you look,
Blue.
Blue flowers,
Blue carpet,
Blue walls,
Blue glass,
Blue dishes,
Blue towels....
get the picture?

I am back in Ohio
again.
Mom is back in the hospital.
Short of getting on a rant
or soapbox,
health care certainly lacks
the
CARE
part.
 
My mom is in Northside Medical Facility
and
I have to say,
it has made some great strides over the past few years
and
the nursing staff is
excellent
in my opinion.
 
Care lacks in doctors and residents
who tell you they do not know what is wrong
so we are releasing her.
No diagnosis,
just go home.
Really?
REALLY?

 
A small sample of Dad's carvings!
 
This morning we meet with doctors,
we will be there when they get there.
Six AM.
 
Sure wish I could have slept. 
 
I appreciate all of you sending
thoughts and prayers!
Your kind notes,
words of encouragement,
texts,
e-mails,
all greatly appreciated!

OH MY GOSH...this is just not to be for our parents...we love them and want to help them in all the ways we can - and then to be told to go home...goodness.
I pray for your mother and that you will all get the answers you need.
I love Blues too - used to have lots but not so much anymore.
Blessings,
Karen
