Grandma is doing better today. Her sugar levels are still pretty low because of the wrong meds and now they've discovered that her iron level is on the low side as well. But the dr's won't deal with that until they get the sugar levels back up. My MIL said that she was a little more talkative today. Apparently the hospital is now looking into the nursing home. But I told DH that either way they should get involved. It's not enough that the hospital is looking into it, they should be in the loop so that it doesn't fall through the cracks.

Teresa- hmmmm....I didn't know that regular people could give out meds and injections. Good to know....

Michelle- well said. If it were my grandmother I would've been on the phone with a lawyer on Monday but it's DH's family and they are a little more passive than I am. I am trying my hardest to get them to make sure that the nursing home gets more than a slap on the wrist.

Thanks for the well wishes and advice ladies.

WOOHOO!!! 3 more sleeps and counting!!!!

Diana, when Jonathan first came home from the hospital, I did his injections twice a day for a year...I had about 20 minutes of training...

I guess I didn't think of it that way. I just thought that in a nursing home/health care agency, there would be qualified nurses to manage and administer the meds.

Hey Christyne, it was great to see you too!
Did you hide the prezzie for DD?

here's the link to the location of that bakery shop I was telling you about.
http://www.mccalls.ca/mapst.asp

Looks like you can browse around online too if you want to see if its worth your while to go there. Its near Kipling station, on Bloor (I think I said Dundas, sorry).

I woulda thought you needed to be a nurse to inject shots and give meds and stuff too.

I agree with you Diana... the fam needs to get thier nose into that stuff..... lemme tell you, thier insurance company will NOT want to hear about that. I would def. call the manger/director/owner, whatever of the nursing home and demand an explanation! If you don't get an answer you like, demand their contact information for thier insurance broker or carrier. Ins. co's do not take lightly to stuff like that and if you report it, something might come of it. It may get them to pay more attention to what's going on there.

I hope they get her blood sugar levels stable soon. then they can deal with the other issues.

Thanks Karen! I will definately try to pursuade them to take further action. It's not so much that I want them to sue for monetary gain, it's just to insure that this doesn't happen. I talked to my SIL today and asked her if grandma will be going back to the same home after she's released from the hospital and she said that she probably will be. GRRRR....it took so much time and effort to get her used to the people there that they don't want to uproot her, but seriously....remember I told you that they are passive....hopefully there will be a happy ending after all is said and done.

You're super-mom! You're always on the go....definately an inspiration! Hopefully when the babies don't dominate every waking moment of my time, I'll get half of what you do in a day done in a week!

If it's not government run then you just get a few minutes of training and away you go....just like if you had to do it at home like Christyne did but instead of taking care of one person, you take care of a whole building of people. You get paid a whopping $10/H or $11.50 if you do the night shift.

In the end they're human.
People make mistakes. I just hope that they get thier act together because this is a mistake that could have been very easily avoided.

And I know what you mean Diana, when my grandmother was killed, we sued. We didn't want a windfall, we just wanted what was right. We felt that they should ante up for the funeral expenses. Since my dad took care of it all, I don't know that anything came of it, but nonetheless, we couldn't sit back and just let it go. We needed some closure.

I'm sure that the person feels terrible & he or she will pay more close attention. You know, in the end, the least they could do, is issue your family a formal apology. Perhaps that is something you could suggest also - if they don't want to take it too far.

LOL....DH and I are frantically trying to put together my new craft room...you ladies don't mind stamping in wet paint right??? Kidding (kinda), if all goes well, the painting will get done tomorrow. I have the BEST husband in the world. As of Monday, there wasn't even any flooring in that room. Now it's all done, furniture assembled...now the fine tuning (ie. baseboards, trims, paint, electrical covers, etc...) But I told DH that even if it's not pretty we'll still manage as long as we have a table and our stamps!

I think it'll be you and Christyne sleeping over....Teresa will come at about 10 for a few hours since she's gotta get back to her squids and DH.

SOOOOO EXCITED!!!! And I don't think that we'll be getting much sleep anyways!!! I feel like a little kids anticipating her first sleep over! So much fun!

I have to leave on Saturday night no later than 2am to pick Bob up from his gig.
Yesterday Jacob had a school trip to the ROM. We were supposed to pick to pick him up at 5pm but they had bad traffic and didn't get back until 6:45. Fortunately a teacher called someone at 5:30 to say what was going on. The word got spread around and we all went home for awhile.

Michelle, yes, as Diana said, I am indeed sleeping over. Have to be back on Sunday for the Santa parade in Streetsville (if it's not raining), so can't stay too late Sunday morning (which works for Diana as she has to be somewhere by two)

Teresa, I would have been in a TOTAL panic! I hope Jacob enjoyed the ROM!

Diana, your DH deserves a prize for sure!!!

Only one more sleep peeps - WOOT!!!

For those that know...we FINALLY got a surgery date for DD. She will be going in on Dec. 15th. SO close to Christmas, but we wanted it done before the new year, so this is good.

They are saying it's a 5 to 7 day recovery in the hospital, but if she heals like her brother (UGH!) we'll likely be there for Christmas. The good thing is, if you HAVE to be in a hospital at Christmas, Sick Kids is the place to be!

He did enjoy the ROM and last night the movie Night At The Museum was on which made him think of all kinds of cool stuff he saw. Another kid was saying to his parents how bored he was when I was getting Jake. My squid likes museums...always has...I guess he gets that from me.

My kids love the museum too! The boys are into the dinosaurs and DD likes all the ancient civilizations, particularly Egypt.

Nope not yet Janet...hopefully today! Cross your fingers!

Michelle- there are 4 of us now. So excited! Umm...as for what to bring...I have A LOT of stuff...lol...so you don't really have to bring anything except for cs, paper, and adhesive, unless there's something that you MUST HAVE when you craft or for a certain project.

As for what to work on...you could always join Christyne and Teresa's swaps, that'll give you something to play around with!

Teresa- can you please remember to bring me another tin??? thx

What time are you ladies anticipating on being here just so I can make sure I'm decent.

Hi all ~

I have my tins neatly stacked and ready for something.... just not sure what yet...

For those who asked, my grandmother was run over by... (OMG, this is terrible but grandma got runover by a reindeer just popped into my head). Um.. my grandmother was hit by a lumber truck. The driver didn't see her and another old lady crossing the street because he was turning right and in a lumber truck and my grandmother was like 4 ft. tall.

Its been ... oh, almost two years now I think. So I'm okay with it. Cried alot during that time. But glad she didn't suffer. I call my family alot more now.

You know, its hard, but I do try to see brighter days and not dwell on things too much. I think if we waste too much time on things we cannot change, we miss the special things that we CAN share.

I'm not heartless, its just that I'm in Christmas mode, and the words.... its just my way...!!

I am so sorry to hear what happened to your grandma. It must've been so hard since it was so sudden, but I am so glad to hear that you're ok now and thinking about the positive! That's the way it's gotta be otherwise we'd all be depressed and/or angry all the time.

Thank you!
It was very hard. But, you know, you can't change what's happened. And i know that the driver felt terrible. I was told that the police officers on scene said he was very visibly shaken and upset. So ~ I don't wish him ill will. I hope that he's chosen another career though.

onwards and upwards.. so much has happened in my life the last couple of years. Its really time for me to look towards happy, healthy things!!

Karen, what Diana said!!!!

I can't WAIT till tomorrow!

I'm going to be baking up a storm to bring with me too! The chocolate chip shortbread are already made...tomorrow I'll be baking three OTHER kind of shortbread cookies and will attempt (for the first time EVER!) butter tarts! I'll be using my Aunt Margie's recipe (I miss her!), so I know it'll be good!

Time to be there....is the crack of dawn too early? LOL! Just kidding...I'm going to leave here around 4:30 to 5:00 or so...I think it should take an hour and change...

And who said anything about being decent? You all know I'm coming in my PJ's right???

Michelle, I am SO not joking! If you ask any of my friends they will tell you that if I DON'T show up in PJ's they think something is wrong!!!!

To see how I am baking. scroll back through posts and look for references to "superwoman". Apparently, that's me - LOL!
