    Thanks to all who took the time to reply and to those that did no. Under the DelGreco name, you may see about fortysome names who took time to tune in.

    You cannot underestimate the love and need of a feline [cat] for its keeper. Her actions speak one helluva louder than any words I can put down here. It's great to be needed and loved...even by a species other than human.

    I agree that the care given to people in those facilities is dismal. Everyone knows what you need, and no one bothers to ask for your opinion. I'm glad you are back with your cherished cat, Dan. May the next few years be smooth sailing!!

    It's such a relief to know that you're still able to post, Dan. I'm hoping your ordeal was something that doesn't come with a lot of complications you don't need.

    Still among the living dead. Just came home today from the HOSPITAL...used LifeAlert button, had a little over $200 in a pants pocket when taken into the ambulance...it disappeared on the way to hospital.

    NO PAIN just lost balance and fell. SPENT FOUR DAYS OF HELL IN THE HOSPITAL. Not a good place to reside for more than a simple fall.

    Must try to find some daily help inside the home.

    Glad to hear you back on Dan,

    If you need some daily help I am sure there must be something there. Here in Canada we have Health care aids or as they are called now "PSWs" Personal support workers. My wife was a PSW for over 20 years helping people in their homes with personal care and light housekeeping .

    Looking forward to your getting back on line here when you get stuff straightened out.

    Dan, I would go after the ambulance workers if I were you. Pretty low to rifle someone's pockets when they are incapacitated. Good to hear you are home.

    There's a possibility that your pockets were emptied and the contents put into a bag that the hospital forgot to return. Worth asking anyway

    Falling is not good, glad your alert button worked. My mum used hers and when she didn't answer the phone the operator assumed she was ok and it was a mistake. She waited on the ground in the garden for ages for help then dragged herself down the path across two rooms to a to a table where she managed to pull a phone off onto the floor and called for help!

    Don't you have agencies that could get somebody to look in for 15mins three times a day to see you are ok and help with anything you need?
    Nick, lots to learn, late starter.

    Yesterday called my favorite restaurant and ordered a meal for this evening. Scrod Mediterranean with a vegetable salad, [although tomatoes are of the fruit variety.]
    Enough food for 3 meals, just had portion #1. What a difference from the bland food
    served in the hospital. Even on a low sodium restriction.

    Johnnie II is not eating! Hope it is a reaction to my coming home.

    I wish I could relate about my four days in the hell hole, but it could be deleted,
    so no words about my hospital experiences.

    Dan, hope you and Johnny Ii are relaxing comfortably this evening. You may not realize how much we miss your posts, there may not be many replies but plenty of listeners. I hope you have a record of your autobiography because it would be interesting to hear your thoughts about things in the last 100 years, I only have 64 years of thoughts, but love history, photos of old places that aren't anymore or still are. Sincerely, in interested listener.

    Richiec I echo your comments. All of a sudden Dan hasn't been active here. It is my sincere hope that he is ok and well.
