Night in the Home

You might notice all the lights are on. If you hear a low rumble it’s my roommate’s oxygen machine.

He’s also having trouble figuring out how to turn the TV off…

A navy vet from aircraft carrier. But confused and needing someone to help navigate the system.

Am trying to do that.

Got this card today.

Well it took 4 hours to get someone to look at my right foot.

The boot was on too tight. It was cutting off circulation and pressed the heel against the back of the boot.

There’s a red mark where the strap was pressed but that will leave…

I told the aide who originally wouldn’t remove the boot that she could have done that two hours ago and saved me a lot of pain.

No reaction on her part.

I said, did you hear me?

I heard you sir.

Then nod. Say yes.


She looked at me for the first time. A who does he think he is look.

So you don’t want to see the nurse?

No. Two hours Ago would have been good!

And around 3 am I fell asleep.

At free four something taps my knee.

Do do want to be changed?

And right after, comes in. Looks at the left heel and says its fine.

The right foot is also fine.

It’s now 6 am. Two hours of sleep

Someone will come in with a single blood thinner pill any moment.

Then breakfast. Do you know where your parents are?

Hell Night

Really. The new night aides have been trained by sadistic maniacs.

Fuck them all. Except for the one that isn’t on duty tonight.

You could be dying and they will ask you if you are finished with your dinner.

My right foot is nothing seated correctly in the protective boot. And I feel a blister starting.

Oh. She just came back and started twisting my left foot which had felt fine until she was thru with it.

Nurses from hell.

Go back to the underground caverns you crawled out of.

Don’t expect much humanity at night

And they actually get paid more. And don’t dare report them

Not unless you are ready foranno more trouble. Or if you can do it Annonomously.


I will try to get some sleep now. Frankly it was a shit day all around.
