Hello, I spotted this great color combo over at The Paper Players this week and I knew that the colors would work perfectly for the card I had in mind. I am going to try to make a very long story as short as I can. My father fainted at his Bank last Thursday and was rushed to the emergency room. He was later diagnosed with AFIB and admitted for further tests along with stitches on his head. Many hours later, as it’s the peek of tourist season and all the snowbirds are here, we found out he’s a candidate for a Pacemaker. However, Medicare will not pay for it unless his heart stops for intervals longer than three seconds and his only stops for two seconds at at time. Yes, I am serious. Go figure! With that being said, things have been quite stressful for all of us. I could sit here and rattle on and on about his care in the hospital, his unbearable roommate, the fact that he hadn’t slept for 4 days, and that when he was finally able to be discharged (and he called me at the crack of dawn, ready to leave, and was unhooking himself from all his machines), it ended up taking us 8 hours as the paper work was messed up multiple times, including once I reached the pharmacy to finally be on our way.
I am not going to bore you with any more of that, instead I am going to focus on the three people that helped me get through this past week. First, it’s the bank teller (Erica) from my father’s bank, that was bound and determined to track me down ( by googling me and finding a newspaper article written about me, and then calling multiple schools till she found the one I was currently working at) to notify me that my father was on route to the hospital. (Later to find out, that when her father was hospitalized for a car crash and died 5 hours later, no-one bothered to try to find her or a family member, so they might have a chance to say their goodbyes. She said she was bound and determined that was not going to happen to anyone else.) Then there are the two Publix pharmacist, one that took so much time with me explaining all the ins and out of my fathers new medications, along with the ones he was currently taking, and fixing the prescriptions that were once again wrong for the third time when I arrived to fill them. Not to mention, the pharmacist from another Publix that saved me $485.00 by making me aware of a coupon I could print out at home for a 30 day free trial. I showed up to the store, with the wrong coupon of course, and after many bumps along the way he somehow managed to get it to me for free anyhow! So, as you can see there are still Good Eggs in this world and these cards are for them (3rd not pictured), with a gift certificate enclosed of course! I am happy to report that my dad ( 87 years young) is doing much better, and at this point we are just taking it day by day till his follow up heart specialist appt.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings, (sorry for all the typos and grammar errors along the way). Now go on out there and be someone’s good egg! Nanc’
