Special medical request or “Code Blue”?

In this section the devotion that Andy has for his love, turned ward, allowed us to explore the fine line between the medical advice we are given, and the insistence on medical practitioners to have things their way.

Long term care for any loved one is a balance of life, work, and responsibility. We are all torn when our personal agenda’s are derailed by a demand on a loved one’s schedule and yet isn’t it fair to doubt the legitimacy of the request? Do you think Andy is doing the right thing? What would you do if faced with something similar?

Of course, if you read the entire story you might find the outcome surprising. Enjoy the story.

Excerpt-The Enigma Always

Andy practically shouted into the phone. “What do you mean, bring her in for another specialist review? We were just there last week for her monthly checkup! Don’t you people know who is coming and when around that facility? …

“Don’t be using your uppity attitude on this old Georgia farm boy, young lady! At least I know how to pour bovine urine out of a boot with the instructions written on the bottom of the heel, unlike some people I talk to on the phone …

“Well, of course I want her to have every opportunity to be helped, but why couldn’t you have told me last week …

“Yes, I know Su Lin is a special case. I realize that means many specialists are interested and not all of them show up at a convenient time …

“Well, I have my regular job too, you know. These little jaunts to the medical facility take time out of my regular schedule to accommodate these random specialist reviews …

“You mean this visiting specialist is so important that you will come fetch her and bring her back when the review is over? Well, I don’t know about that. I’m her guardian, and ever since the accident I …

“Yes, she does know all the folks there, so it’s not like I’m sending her off with a bunch of strangers …

“You make a pretty good case for this one time, which would help me out with my work load …

“And the driver’s name? …

“Leroy, okay. Got it! Thanks. We’ll see Leroy then day after tomorrow….”

Andy was really annoyed that they wanted to see Su Lin on such short notice. He was scheduled to depart in a couple of hours to his customer in California to provide some updates to their equipment.
