Dying is not fun in a clean, well-lighted place.
Quite true, my cowboy, and evocative of everything you stand for, but you also wanted to go home and go to bed as you were having the stroke five years ago. So, I'm glad I ignored you and drove you to the hospital, despite your appeals otherwise.
I love you more than life itself and I have endless respect for you, but if it ever appears that you need to stay in a hospital, I will again ignore you.
And I agree with the others who are indignant that they sent you home. I'm still suspicious as to why--was it that you are not a member of Presbyterian's HMO or that you have lousy insurance?
Presbyterian denied both of us when we applied because you had had a stroke and I have diabetes type II. Naturally, when you need extra care, you don't have very good insurance because all the name brands don't want to insure anyone at risk, it might actually cost them more money than their bottom line calls for.
I've wanted to vent ever since yesterday. Now you know how I feel about the whole system.
