I (David) came back the next morning, I brought croissants and pain au chocolate and I made it to the hospital before the doctor did his morning rounds and he said that Jonah could go home this afternoon or maybe tomorrow. Well, I was going to push for today. He gave us an order for an x-ray so we did the process again, this time there wasn’t a nurse trying to rush us through the line so I waited like everyone else.
We finally were able to get the x-ray and brought it back to the room, and waited and waited…
Lunch had come and gone and we still had not seen anyone so I went to the nurse’s desk and asked if we were going to be released soon. The nurse asked me, “Are you leaving today?” and I said “Yes!” She said, OK I’ll start the paperwork. Another hour had gone by and I went and asked how the paperwork was going. She told me I needed to go down to billing window to see if our bill was ready.
Once I found the right line I waited for about 15 minutes and the person handed me a piece of paper, then I had to go to another window to pay. After I paid I had to find another person who could give me a pink piece of paper that said I had paid me bill and he stamped the bill. Then I went back up to the nurses’ station they stamped the bill again and we were finally able to leave.
I can only hope that things are going really well at this point in time but I’m on the edge my seat to hear, my friends.
Praying for you,
Mark, he is doing better … tomorrow’s post will show a picture of his fingers during one of the bandage changes.
