    Default Kind of a weird day....

    So, Im sitting here drinking coffee the morning and I get a phone call from Blake Hospital here in our town. I answer and was ask if I was "Kelly Marino" I said yes, well they went on to tell me they had a patient in the ER and needed to be picked up. Im like . Patient's name is Jerry. Well Jerry is one of my regular's at my bar in his 70's!!

    He has no family and is retired. He slipped and fell last night and twisted his ankle. He thought he was going to be OK so he just went on to bed, he woke up about 2 a.m. to pee and when he stood up he fell down. (He goes on to tell me he soiled himself, lol) anyway, he looks down and his ankle is about to bust open it was so swollen.

    He called an ambulance and they took him in and ex-rayed, no breaks but tore all his ligaments and tendons connected to his ankle, the hospital just told me he needed a ride home. So I throw on a bra, pulled back a pony tail and off I go. When I get there all the dr's and nurses were all in his room. The orthopedic dr. came in and decided to admit him til Monday when they will do extensive surgery.

    Poor guy was in so much pain I just hurt for him, but more than that baffled that he had them call me!?!?? I never questioned him why, but he ask me if I would stay until they got him in his room, which I did. I was there over 4 hours. I just got home and told him I would call and check on him later. He ask me if I was coming back tomorrow to see him and I said of course! He then ask me if I would bring him lunch, LOL.

    I am just sitting here letting today sink in, it was kind of weird, but I feel good knowing that I was able to give him some comfort. I don't even know why I am posting this, I guess I am just baffled and trying to let it sink in. He sits with the same 6 guys every day, why didn't he call one of them? I don't even know him out side of work.

    Poor guy, I will be with him through all of this now. I guess he trusted me enough to know that I would be there and care. Which I do.

    Oh Kelly this story makes me sad… there are SO many lonely people in this world today. That's got to make you feel good that he felt comfortable enough w/you to call you when he needed help… He just sensed the caring person that you are, and you were there for him!!! How crazy, you get the lonely customers and I get the stray dogs… LMAO!!! I see a pattern going here… I'm cracking up that he asked you to come by and bring lunch… did he ask for a beer?!!

    @ddnene, LOL, no he didn't ask for a beer, and NO I would not take him one, he is on Morphine and Percoset's I think he will feel drunk enough on that!! Bless his heart!! Funny thing is, the only real argument he had about them keeping him was who was going to take care of his 11 year old dog, I told him I would, but he gave me the number of his neighbor, so I called and got that all straighted out for him so "Jr. his dog" will be taken care of as long as needed.

    My interpretation is that he couldn't tell his buddies that he soiled himself, but you've seen it all…No, just kidding…he knew that you are a good person who would help him, but didn't know that about his "buddies"..

    @RiiSi I told my husband the same thing, I don't think he wanted the guys to see him not be dudely, of course he didn't have to tell them he pee'd himself, but he was crying in front of me because he was in so much pain. I just stroked his arm and kept telling him the pain meds would kick in soon........

    Oh I'm so glad you were able to help him out, I feel really bad for him Did they ask you at the hospital if you were related to him? I'm just wondering if he told them you were his daughter… LOL

    Well I know why he called you instead of his buddies......YOUR BETTER LOOKING. That was cool that you stayed with him and got his dog taken care of. Poor old dude, that has to suck and I know he is in so much pain. He has a long road of recovery in front of him.

    I just called to check on him, he wanted to make damn sure I was bringing him lunch tomorrow, lol. Of course I will. I have his wallet full of credit cards/cash the hospital sent home with me, he told me to use them,.............LOL I could be so BUT that is so not me!! I will buy his lunch and not touch the wallet!!
