we have a bug going around here too .. no vomitting but phlem and cough and fatigue and it goes on for about 2 weeks.Very good day here -
Speeding into Xmas-
Grandson studying hard taken over my laptop! Lol
That, among other things , is what GrannMas are for(:
On a more serious note -
I find myself in a bit of an awkward situation-
Am put in a position of accompanying a relative
(Who 'needs ' physical assistance )
For a hospital appmnt-
(The hospital is near where I live
And very far from where the relative & immediate family live)
Thing is there's a serious outbreak
Of the winter vomiting super bug'
there at present, patient visiting has
even been suspended
I honestly don't want to take ANYchances with this
Plus the fact that I'm on heart medication-
I simply don't want to go in there.
I've been there for this relative 'all other times'
Without a problem or regret
But, this is different
A close friend said
'You owe it to yourself to do whats best for ' you'
Any opinions from the wise and intelligent
Folks on this thread would be welcome indeed-
And please be honest-
If you think I'm being mean don't hesitate in saying so
I'd prefer & Appreciate that
HOw immobile is this person?
Can you get them to the door and then you go spend an hour or two shopping or at a coffee shop, etc while they are attended to in the hospital, and where a nurse can help them navigate from place to place in the hospital? Can you get a third party fiend, who is not as worried abut catching the bug, to accompany them within the hospital while you stay outside of it?
I hope your freind can appreciate that in yuor conditoin you can't afford to risk catching something as destructive as this bug going around because you are more susceptable to complications.
Is your presence truly required or is it moral support?
