That's about all that matters. No more running to the hospital to battle the process of our screwed up health care system. He was released to go by doctors before noon and I picked him up at 7:15pm. He sat there for 7 hours doing nothing, getting nothing, just taking up a room while they got the paperwork together for him to leave. We have been through this recently 2 other times and I know it can be done in minutes not hours. And of course like last time, the doctor wrote a prescription wrong. So we have to call back and deal with that tomorrow. It is an important medicine (the new blood pressure one) and he needs to know how much to take and when. The discharge papers say 6 a day and the prescription says 2. That's a life or death difference. No wonder they are threatened by law suits.
He will go to the dialysis center tomorrow night but can't get in to see his Nephrologist until monday because he is gone tomorrow. He also needs immediate follow up with a Neurologist to get approval to drive and I have a great one but he is on call at hospital next week so he can't see him until the next Monday. Which means he will need to be driven next week to dialysis and work from home. Bruce needs a week to recover anyway but the no driving part will put me under great strain for yet another week.
