Of course, I'm glad she's alive but couldn't notify us in the last 10 days? But today calls my granddaughter....and then asks her to bring her McDonalds for breakfast? And she's an hour away? And my granddaughter runs out to buy her food before breakfast stops being served at McDonalds? And asks to borrow my car to take her mom food (I'm well aware that hospital serves food) because her car keeps breaking down? Do you see something wrong with this picture?

To be fair she may have been being assisted through withdrawal since she got there and unable to communicate. My experience in the past has been that takes 3-4 days on sedation. A nurse, social worker, anyone....could have been asked to call one of us.

It's easy to go from worried, heartsick, sad, unable to sleep....to WTF? How could you do this to all of us?

I've done this countless times in the past 25 years and still have not learned. Still feel frantic that she's in a morgue someplace and unidentified.

Thanks for letting me rant. I don't blame you if you don't read all of this. I'm going to post it for all the kind people who have been commenting.
