    EVERY skater should have basic musical training! It really does make a difference.

    Just sending hugs to you, Jesse. We're all wishing things were easier for you. . . I think of you often and pray for wellness and peace. And my dogs would all snuggle with you (and Porki the Yorkie) if they could.

    Thanks guys. :) Staying in the hospital today I think... the bed is just way more comfortable than the one they got me at home.
    Just had another lonnnnng meeting with the manager about the nurse abusing me.. apparently it will be dealt with very seriously which is great to hear. :)

    What a relief! I am so glad they are listening and addressing that awful behavior! :blah:

    What do you do for music in the hospital, btw?

    The seniors international season is starting in Salt Lake City tomorrow - do you plan to watch any of it? (I don't know if it's available in Canada.) I am a bit confused what with the different time zones, withdrawals, and the two different events, but I am looking forward to seeing Weaver/Poje, D/W, Gold, and a bunch of others. :cat:

    Have a restful evening, Jesse!

    I haven't listened to any music in a lonnnnnng time haha. But i have my iPod or laptop if I ever want to.

    And hopefully I'll just catch youtube videos of the event as it goes.. I haven't really looked in to if it's on or there's a live stream I could get.

    Hi Jesse
    Hope you have a peaceful night and your pain is more manageable.. good for you speaking to the Manager, I found that helped in my hospital stay and also helps to chat and talk with the nice nurses.. unfortunately like any profession there are always a few bad apples. With the skating season just getting under way I hope that will become something you can focus on, especially being an Olympic year. Please don't stop venting though in here, for the most part I would hope this would be a safe place for you to share your feelings. Take care :p

    Jesse-I don't know if it's like this in Canada, since our hospitals here are private companies, but in my dad's room (he's having open-heart surgery to replace a valve and do a stent tomorrow morning) there's a poster with a number to call if you or your family feel that you are not being listened to regarding symptoms or care or if you think that you're not being treated correctly/respectfully. Do they have something like that? You really ought to have someone who can argue your case for you so you don't have to put up with things like that nurse.

    There's nothing like that here.. but the manager has come to see me several times so it was dealt with that way which was good. And my mom was here with me and able to give a lot of input also which was nice.

    Pain today is back a bit... I wonder if it's because I've been tapering down on my steroids. But I think I'd rather be in pain than be on the steroids... :S

    Spaz, glad to hear things are better for you re: nurse situation. I am very happy that the manager is paying attention to your needs. It's great that your mom was there. Pain comes and goes. It sounds like it is bearable at the moment. Hopefully it will go away.
