I will start for saying I do appreciate all my followers. Everyone understanding for what my wife and I have been going through over the last the couple of days or I should say almost two weeks. I would like to take the opportunity to say what happen on those days and the different thing that happen with the people we meet over in the hospital.
First, the night Denise became with the highest temperature of 103.6 not only I was really worried, I did have to take the hardest decision and listen to my gut feeling and take her in on the E.R. she was really out of it she did not knew how she got there or who I was.
Took 5 and 1/2 hours for them to lower the fever. A nurse practitioner notice her leg very swelling and red where her knee cap and all around the wound that is how she was admitted into the hospital if the nurse practitioner did not notice it she would have been sent home. While she was in the hospital, she was given 4 antibiotics and morphine which doped her up the whole time she was in there. On Monday, the Wound doctor came in, took a culture of the wound, and dressed her wound.
However, on that period we met very interesting people, some patients of the hospital and some that have family members in it, some good some bad, health wise.
Well of the entire people three make the short list of being truthful to us, we got to know them better and make possible friendship connections. While my wife was in the hospital, we ran across a girl that is 17 yrs old. This girl gave a sob story about her and her husband. Which we found out that her so-called husband that was laying in the hospital was not even her husband. Before we left the hospital here, she was running around with some other guy while this other guy that was in the hospital was on morphine sitting in the smoking area.
She says to us that she came all the way from Austin TX. Alternatively, some place close to Austin. I do not remember, and that she was brought here to this neck of the woods. She said that her things were with this one lady in Dallas. She did not have even 5 dollars to her name and she was asking for cigs the whole time. This makes me think that least I could help this girl by just giving her a roof over her head until she figures out what she is going to do. Here I am is asking for help to accomplish my dream of became resident of USA even when I did not have any yet I was determine to help her the best way possible and in the amount of our possibilities.
My wife got in touch with the father of this girl and explains to him that we know where his daughter is. He explains to her to be careful because his daughter lies about everything. My wife told him that we will help her daughter well that is before she took off with this other guy.
Three days later after my wife was out of the hospital we received a call from her asking for our help to come and get her from this guy that she was with. We told her we will come but she will need to try to get some help to get back down to her fathers she said that is fine. When we picked her up, she had a puppy with her gee something that she did not need. She had clothes with her, which I am not sure, where she got all these clothes. We got her to our place and my wife got in touch with the father and explains to him that she has a puppy and he stated that no puppy is coming down here to his house. He said she would have to sell that puppy just to get back home. My wife ask the father if she came up with any clothes and he said no she only had what was on her back. She said well she has a big bag of clothes and he said well she is back into shop lifting again. He said to my wife I don’t know what I am going to do with her why cannot she understand that she has help if she needs it. The father cried to my wife and told her how appreciative he was to her.
Because my wife just got out of the hospital and she was trying to get better we both thought to call up on some so called friends and ask them if they could take her in which they did. The plan was for us to sell the puppy so she could get down to her fathers that was the plan. She went over to our so-called friends and stayed there. For me the next day I went to the Wal-mart area to sell the puppy well least try. No one didn’t want to buy her at the time so the next day I went back at the same area I was sitting at in the cold and mist of rain and about 2:30 pm some man came and said hey I would like her. He was willing to pay for her the amount we were asking for. I will call you and tell you when I get off where I can pick up the puppy at. Well he called and said he was still at work and he will call us in a hour that is when everything went down hill. The so-called friend called and said she wants the puppy and she is going home. To make the story short the guy never got the puppy and the girl never went home and the so called friends are no longer our friends because they lied to us. The girl is with them how we found out is when my wife went to wal-mart she ran into our so called friends neighbor and she and her talked and she said that the girl is still there at our so called friends. I said well now least I know that they will never ever be trusted.
Next time I will tell you another of the stories of the other side of the coin.
