Today was rough. I’m not even sure why. Just couldn’t get going. 😔
I’m still sleeping in the recliner, since the last thing I need to do is be rolling around with my neck like this, especially since the hole where the drain was has obviously not healed yet. 😬 So I just woke up this morning and stayed in the chair, grabbed my laptop, and started working on a letter for the patient representative folks at the hospital.
After getting that done, it had given me enough irritable energy to go in and find someone to hand it off to. It’s the weekend staff, so I didn’t expect anyone to be there today to actually do anything more about it – but I made clear to the woman that I expected “someone important” to read it and give me a call back. 🤨 I said that even if they didn’t agree with my concerns, that I wanted to be told why… not so much that their reasons would matter to me, but more to just make sure that they read all three pages.
Just so it doesn’t seem like I’m trying to be cryptic, it’s just my way of trying to address some procedural things once I was moved to my room. Things that made my experience a lot less pleasant than it could and should have been. I wasn’t going to pursue anything further, but if things aren’t brought to their attention then they’ll have no reason to consider changing anything. I’m just trying to see that future patients don’t deal with a few of the things that I had to deal with.
But as soon as I got back home I fell asleep in the chair for about an hour, but the unexpected nap didn’t do anything to help my energy levels. 😒 I mean, I’m sure my body wants to recover and rest and sleep… not to mention get used to the physical change and new meds for that, so I dunno… I’m probably being meh about it for nothing. Hoping tomorrow is better.
