Home Health Was Just Here

I emailed my medical doctor yesterday about my shoulder and some concerns I have. Today at noon the health care nurse called and made arrangements to come out. One came at about 1:30p. and was here for about an hour. All kinds of questions. She feels that the most important thing is to get a social worker out to talk to. I still have not dealt with Josh as far as what happened and need to talk to someone about that. Then I need to get to the orthopedic surgeon about my shoulder. Need financial help to get to the doctor for I have no more money left for the month. I also need help either getting another bed or help in something to help me get up off of the floor each time I need to get up. I am exhausted but feel a little better knowing I am going to get some help.

Oh I so hope I am hearing health coming your way. I hope that nurse does her job and gets the ball rolling for you.

They will do a little bit. They never stay long enough to do much.

@celticeagle That's not cool. I remember nurses staying quite a while with my Dad even though they obviously had a bunch of others to call on that day.

I don't have any kind of transportation, have to either wait until the beginning of the month or get script like I did at the hospital to get back home. I have medicare insurance and that is all. I have no money to pay for transportation so am hoping that my regular doctor that I emailed yesterday sent me some script so I can get to the orthopedic surgeon to loo at my shoulder. My daughter helps me all day. She doesn't drive. .

@Hatley ......The social worker gave me some and I am having some sent to me from my regular doctor's office. It's very hard for me because all my friends moved away and no family close to take me.
