Spending over 12 hours in the emergency room

18 May 2019 at about 0315 hrs. my time (CA) went to hell, as some you know I have posted, about my wife’s health. She got up an went to the bathroom and was returning to bed. Not sure what or how it happened but she slipped and went down. Hitting her head. I am up in a flash to find her on the floor, with blood all over everywhere. Called 911 for help. The paramedic took her to the emergency room. With me close behind. Seven (7) stiches later and CT Scan a concussion and small or bruising/bleeding showing up. So, for the next 12 hours we stayed in the emergency room. 99% of the nurses were great, I survived on Black coffee. That they got for me And what ever else I could talk the nurses to get for me. Being a weekend, they were shorthanded. Due to the fact that she had some small bleeding in her brain area, we had to wait 12 hours before they would do another CT scan, to see it the bleeding got larger or stated the same or smaller.
Had one Nurse that was the head nurse that was giving me a little problem on the wife’s care. I dialed a number of someone I know. Knew I would a recording. I waited until she walked by and I stated Her name is Shera (NOT HER NAME) she looked at me and kept walking. A little bit later another individual came up to me asked me some questions about my wife. I stated I can sign any papers for her care. Dam things changed fast. Several of the other nurses came by and gave me a smile.
After the weight period that was required for another CT Scan, which came back looking good. The Doctor stated She could go home, he asked are you taken her home I looked at him and said no, she will be transported home by and ambulance.

AS I WAS LEAVING, I noticed a vehicle next to my truck. With licenses plate frame 82nd & 101st AB on it, the licenses read Swartz??


I get up every TWO hrs to check on my wife, to make sure she is ok.

Motherfucker , I hate tourists. Everything about them, from their way too big Carry ons to their whiney kids as hey drag all.of their shit across everyone's face getting to the back of the plane. Don't forget they all have to stop midstream in the aisle to check their seat number. Goddamn, I hate them all.

And don't forget once they get seated, and their pasty white gelatin-like flesh is finally squished between the arm rests (leaving you no room). And then, the self-serving fuckers have the audacity to kick off their shoes to air out those porky feet. It outa be legal to choke them out.

Try living in the vicinity of a tourist town. There's a reason the locals all seem to go elsewhere - and usually not a traditional tourist area - during tourist season.

Going to water the lawn of a service members house, who is overseas in Japan, and the neighbor is tapping off their water spicket to water their own lawn.
Left a note explaining theft, trespassing and owner is an O4 Jag in A/F.

Soooo the people who hate tourists go somewhere to be tourists

Everyone is a tourists somewhere at sometime. Or you’re just a crotchety old ne’re-do-well who doesn’t want to experience anything new. They are just trying to experience a place some of you live. And what’s TFG bitching about? He lives in a place no one would want to visit. Gavin must have been badmouthing .45 GAP again...

If you live in a place no one comes to visit as a tourist, ask yourself then why are you living in a shithole.

Will do. Its amazing what some people will do to save a buck... Hopefully it is a misunderstanding? Its a new housing development, and maybe they were thinking they were using builders water, J/K.... They knew what they were doing

Tourists can get on one's nerves. I lived at the Western gateway to RMNP for many years. Small , quaint , mountain town of about 400 people back then. Fourth of July it would swell to over 50,000. We would usually pack the horses with chow and beer and haul ass up to Blue Lake in the Never Summers. Fireworks at 11,300 feet were pretty cool.

My middle one started a job as a dishwasher/wait staff/cleaner at a restaurant.

He already hates whiny shitheads.

One dickhead family wanted to know what kind of cows and where the ice cream was made in a condescending tone.

Your middle one will either become patient like Job, or have to spend the rest of their lives quelling the throat punch like me. I would wait tables , bar tend and dive for pearls when work was slow in a tourist town. The Gay community loved me and would crowd my bar on Monday nights, it was entertaining!
