Important Developments

1. I asked to see a case manager.
2. I explained my immediate concerns, and used the word Cunt re attending physician.
3. I spoke to the CEO, who listened in horror, gave me his card, and promised a new doctor.
4. The chief of medical staff came in to see Max and ordered some tests and pain meds.
5.   A gastric specialist is coming in the morning.
6. A reader of Godammit.com (Jools) picked me up from the “hospital” and took me to my hip surgeon appointment. To call her an angel is a huge understatement.
7.  The hip is doing okay and has titanium rods in it.
8.   A Godammit.com reader (andrea) sent me a Nursing Care Plan for Max.
9.   Another blogger (WCGB) offered assistance and we bonded over the phone.
10. Max and I sang “Don’t Worry Baby” and I believe I was on key throughout.

The moral so far is this: It doesn’t just take a village; It takes the Internet.

    So glad to hear things are headed in the right direction and you have had so much help and support. Thank god you’ve gotten the right people to start paying attention. Keep at it! Continue to give them hell and call people cunts! It’s great to hear Max feels like singing! Even better that you were on key! I love that you’re part titanium now 🙂 And I will continue sending you all my love and good wishes until you and Max aren’t just singing, but dancing too!

  21. Ann says:

    Tears of joy are streaming down my face at this blessed, positive update. Thank goodness for the wonderful people in your life, and for the pooling of energies reaching out to both you and lovely Max. I can tell that we all feel so helpless and I think I speak for all of us when I say thank you from the depths of our hearts for keeping us posted in between all of this madness.

    I look forward to talking to you tonight. I love you and at the risk of sounding utterly ridiculous, I am so fucking proud of you and awed by you for being so strong and proactive in the face of such adversity.

    “Don’t worry baby,
    Everything will turn out alright…”

  22. Bevitron says:

    Yes, yes, yes! I had (and have) absolute faith that your son and you will come through this, getting better and stronger every day. And I am so GLAD to see all the help and support you’ve had, up close and personal and long-distance. Like everybody else I’ve been fretting my ass off, wondering how I could help at 3, 000 miles away. All I can do is say how much I admire your strength and determination and love, and send the best thoughts your way. Sometimes the Internet is a slap amazing, wonderful thing, ain’t it? Oh, and may the gods (or whatever) bless the good mothers.

  23. Susan says:

    Very happy for you! Now you are Titanic Wolf 🙂
    Sending Max best wishes and I hope for his and your fast recovery!

  27. Aja says:

    Jools is an angel (the thought of us fuckers bonding together through bitching and seriousness, warms my heart in the most unusual way). I’m so happy you have people near on your coast. Xo.
