Awww how sweet of you to ask about us!
Joey is scheduled for surgery next week...
And I am no longer employeed there... what it comes down to is they pushed me into resigning and then would not let me withdraw it because I stuck up for a patient who needed someone, (anyone) to stick up for him. I have lots of patients that want to spend time with me... and I give them my time and affection... Now why they decided to target the gay male nurse and the young male patient rather than the straight female nurse who also is this patients advocate is beyond me? (Not really, actually I do understand what they are thinking...) Meanwhile Joey is very sad, he says it's like he's had his best friend taken from him... he spends a lot of the day crying in his room but I keep encouraging him and I WILL continue to be his advocate... he's had too many people come into his life and then go away and I know why... because he can't just hop into the car to go out for the evening and it requires just a little bit of physical work, (not much) but a little to be his friend and do stuff with him. How pathetically shallow people can be... Well I refuse to be anyones victim and I really don't like pouring out a bunch of just... B/S like this so, We'll be back on more often when all this is behind us and we can just be happy! I don't like being p!ssed off but have a difficult time hiding it...
I am sorry to hear this has happened.......yet I applaud you for standing by Joey
I hate for the world to be this way so often, so unfair.....unjust.
As I stated on your "move" thread, Guiseppe, you have a good heart and spirit, that makes all the difference in the world.
Hang in there and give Joey our love.
Let him know we are thinking of him and his upcoming surgery.
