Well, now that they took my foot and a portion of my leg, they are tossing me to the curb after less than 3 weeks post-surgery. Because of the lack of further Medicare or private coverage and the lack of real effort on the part of the hospital to find sub-acute care, I will have to go home to an apartment riddled with danger and no companionship! Even if the Visiting Nurse Assn. does come in their own good time, there will be quite a bit of time I have to spend alone. I'm scared silly and know I don't have the upper body strength needed to do transfers alone at all hours of the day and night let alone in my arthritic knee that's left to support my weight on transfers. And they know that too. I've told them time and time again but, it's all about that filthy lucre (spelling??)! Money, people, just money!!!
Pray for me and my safety, please! Any suggestions??
