Just a few pictures of some things in our front yard:
Most of you know I don’t have any love for CVS after what they did to Bethany and the others she worked with. Now they are being sued by the Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott, because at a store a little northeast of Houston, the employees dumped tons of patient medical records and credit card information in a dumpster. They were moving from that location, and I guess they didn’t want to take the time to properly dispose of all the paperwork. They better hope they don’t get sued by someone because their identity got stolen from credit card information in that dumpster.
Thank you to those of you who have expressed so many get well wishes to Bethany. She has never really been this sick before. She did not go to work again today. During her 2 years at CVS, I don’t think she missed more than 1 or 2 days due to illness. She does not get sick leave at work, so she prefers to go and put in her required hours, so she will get paid. Brandon is the same way. When he worked at Sears, he even went to work one day, with the flu and fever of 103.
But yesterday when she went back after her lunch break, she was having such terrible abdominal pain, she could not stand. She sat down on the floor, and someone she works with called the customer service manager. They said she was shaking, sweating, and was really pale. That’s when Barbara thought about calling an ambulance.
For those who have asked, yes, we did go to the doctor. We went Monday afternoon. I’ve been suspecting she could have a slight case of appendicitis. Many people think appendicitis always ends in rupture and surgery, but that isn’t necessarily true. A milder case can be treated with antibiotics. You just don’t ever hear about those cases. I found this during my research yesterday:
Sometimes, the body is successful in containing (“healing”) the appendicitis without surgical treatment if the infection and accompanying inflammation do not spread throughout the abdomen. The inflammation, pain and symptoms may disappear. This is particularly true in elderly patients and when antibiotics are used.
She’s on a strong course of antibiotics and steroids right now, and the pain is a little better today.
Someone is supposed to come and fix our phone tomorrow between 8 am amd 8 pm. That means I have to stay home all day and wait for him.
BTW, Justin….we missed you Sunday night. Since you weren’t there, we talked about you
