First, my sister found my mother on the floor of her bedroom - incoherent. So, I spent all birthday night (till 5:30 am) in the hospital emergency ward - standing on my feet. They had one "guest" chair in my mothers "room". My sister has some physical problems, so I gave it to her. No one lifted a finger to find another chair. They didn't care.
We waited in that little room for hours before a doctor made it in. No one ever gave us an explanation or assured us that we weren't forgotten. In the mean time, my elderly mother who may have a head injury just laid there waiting to see a doctor.
I am currently experiencing computer problems so this is . . .
