Palace of Care – Relentless Pursuit

It’s one thing after another, after another. I’m not usually like this but over the last months I’ve been worn down. It’s too much to handle. I’m not sure I can go on any longer. I feel so terrible. I don’t think I can take much more. You know what I think is happening? I think I’m dying. I think I’m dying.

You might be right, but you’re not dead yet. You’ve had a lot happen to you in hospital. The operations, the blood clots, the infection. Nature’s been trying to take you out.

I just want to go home. I love my home. I built it myself, with my own two hands. Your place is better than the hospital, but it’s nothing compared to my own home.

Sure. We’ll try our best to get you home as soon as possible. I don’t think you’re ready yet. You only arrived a few hours ago. We need to get to work calming down your pain and nausea. I want you more comfortable before we can get you home. The last thing I want is for you to bounce back and forward between home and here. I would like to prepare you for one good discharge.

Okay, that sounds good. I just had to get out of that hospital. I couldn’t stand it any more. I wanted out so badly. It’s just too much to take. Sobs loudly

We’re going to get you through this, and your family too. We’re going to keep a close eye on you and will treat your symptoms aggressively as we know you want to get back home as soon as possible. Do you have any questions?
