Still waiting.

Well, the nurse came in late yesterday, and said the doctor was not at the hospital. Maybe today. I can see why the medical industry is in such shambles. This morning, with out telling anyone, they decided to have a fire drill. So at 5:50 am, all of there fire alarms went off. Well, if any of you have seen the flashing lights, and horns going off, it is not a good experience even when you are awake. Maximus has been here over night like they wanted. He has to get X-rays around eight o'clock. And we still have no word if he will have surgery this week, or in four to six weeks. Like I say, hospitals are about as efficient as our banking industry. As long as they set the price, they can do what they want, when they want to. They are one of the few industry's that can sell you something that does not work, and they don't have to fix it, or even give you a refund. They just tell you that it is going to cost you to fix there mistake. What a sick joke. I can only imagine how bad it must be at lessor hospitals. I am not real happy about my experience here so far, but I guess they are doing what they have to. It would be nice if they did stuff because they wanted to. Get the greed of corporate America out of the picture, and everyone would be better off.



  1. Have began prayer chains for Max and all of you! Thanks for keeping us posted John. I know this is hard for you to write to keep us updated, but am thankful because we are all waiting to hear. Praying the surgery goes this week before Dr leaves on vacation. Waiting for him to return is too much! all our love . Roni and Benny

  2. It sounds very frustrating. I know it would be nice to know what to be preparing mentally for. Plus, if Max is not having surgery this week, I'm sure you guys are anxious to be heading home. Thank you so much for taking the time to keep us all updated. We are thinking about you guys constantly and appreciate getting the news. I hope you get some definite news soon.

    Love, Barb, John, and the gang
