Back Home From The Fam

Wow. My aunt was right. He really has improved an awful lot since getting his hospital bed. Maybe it's that he can sit up now so blood flows more normally to his brain. Or maybe it's just his spirit. I don't know. But it was like getting my grandpa back! It was great. He talked. He even talked politics! His mind is actually working well enough again to keep up with current affairs. It was an amazing difference. And he ate a slice of pizza.

Granted, there were still some memory holes. And he's still bedridden. But man oh man is he better. He's even angry instead of depressed. Well, angry at his medical situation.

I guess he has two nurses that check up on him regularly, each for different reasons. And I guess they're from two different companies. And so they won't talk to each other or even remotely work together. It's like they're fighting each other, through him, while neglecting his needs. Which sucks. He's pissed enough to consider stopping paying his insurance and medical bills over it. But, of course, he can't actually do that if he wants to live. It sucks that they're doing that. And between that and his medications, he's paying through the nose.

But then I guess that's fairly normal for being 80.

But hey, I have my grandpa back. So I'm psyched. I'll have to go over and bug him more often now. He he he.
