Was discharged from the hospital and am now at Jen's. We had to rent a hospital bed and a wheelchair and had to purchase a bedside commode and walker. Kaiser would not provide me with them because I am an out of state member -- what they call a visiting guest. Great treatment the whole time I was in but I was put in a Catch 22 situation by their not one of us crap.
Could not be discharged until the items had been delivered and set up but Kaiser Admin refused to provide anything. $200 bucks was the cost of one month's rental and the purchase of the walker and potty. When I'm not so medicated, I'm going to do some research because they way they handled this part totally sucked. Jen had to put everything on her credit card -- thank goodness for her because I did not have mine with me at the hospital.
Am glad to be home. Hospital bed is comfy. Am not allowed to get up for any reason without assistance. There is a very heavy plaster cast on my right leg that runs from the base of my toes all the way up to my upper thigh... sucker feels like it weighs 50 lbs. Tis the temporary one - I see the doc on the 1st and hopefully get a lighter one - old fashioned heavy plaster makes sure that I am not putting any weight on it and encourages me to stay in bed.
Was great having diner with the entire family tonight :) :) :)
