|Hilda, our superb RN|
It's three days later and he hasn't had another episode, and in general is feeling much, much better. It was very reassuring to learn that our emergency care is so good. Within an hour after it happened, he had had an EKG, blood drawn, a chest x-ray, and was on his way to get a CT scan of his head, when I left to go back home to get my book and some sustenance. By the time I returned, he was getting ready to be discharged, with anti-vertigo medication and a prescription for an antibiotic.
We bonded with Hilda and learned that Saturday was her very last day on the job, as she is retiring and looking forward to the next chapter in her life. We all three felt it was very fortuitous to have met each other, and I commented on the quality of the care we received. Hilda said it is the best place she has ever worked! In five years of being here in Bellingham, this is the first time we've needed to take advantage of the emergency care, and now I'm reassured that we are indeed in the right place for our golden years.
And in a few minutes I'm off to the movies with my friend Judy to see The Dallas Buyers Club. It's gotten rave reviews, and my sister saw it and said I simply have to see it, so I am happy to oblige. This is the season when we've got tons of good movies to see. I guess they wait until the holiday season to release them, partly because they will be uppermost in the mind of the audience when the Oscar nominees are chosen. That's what I think, anyway. There are numerous good movies that I'd like to see. I'll let you know what I think of this one.
