That's actually the new job I had referred to previously - I'm Luca's full-time grammar checker.

Yes, long wait, but going to Santa Monica UCLA would have been much much worse.

According to the hospital chief of staff, the hospital was low on available beds for a couple of reasons: 1) shortage of nurses. There are not enough available nurses to comply with the standard of care to fill the beds. Amber, they might be hiring. Second, many of the county and state hospitals are shutting down, forcing people to go the private hospitals.

But it all worked out ok.

Here's the update:

Haven't coughed as much today (the inhaler works!). Still am tachycardiac (high heart rate) and tired, but was told to give the new meds a couple of days to calm my lungs down and probably because I was on much higher dosages of heart calm down meds all weekend. Doc said I should be feeling better overall in 2 days or so. Follow up appointment on Thursday morning with pulmonologist (a fews days out to give meds a chance), but if feel too bad in mean time, am supposed to stop by without an appointment for any reason. The Thursday appointment will include making a long term care plan so we can start narrowing this down and getting me all better!

Re: mags is out of the hopsickle!

Sorry you had to go through the hospital deal. I know how frusterating it can be when they can't pinpoint the problem.

Hang in there and feel better.

Re: mags is out of the hopsickle!

sorry, a little late on the thread. But, I'll play catch-up real quick:

- Oh, no! The hospital? Get well soon!
- HEy!!! Congrats on getting out
- Damn that beard
- I quit smoking, too. Best decision ever. Such a dumb habit. Read "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking."
- Derb, Luca, Daryl...too funny.

Ok. Done.
