i'm sorry...

i apologize for not finishing my last blog. i was writing my blog when i got my mail...yes that's how i found out. I had actually been looking for him all morning...i called the hospital but they were giving me the run around and then i kept calling him at home and nothing. i had already set up home maker services so the home maker agency was kind enough to send me a letter stating that my client "had expired"...well i kind of lost it after that.

i want to dedicate this post to my crazy puerto rican client. The dude was sooooo crazy!!! intimidating when you first saw him though. he was very tall, dark and had this very scary voice but he was the sweetest guy ever!!! he was always making me laugh...i remember one time he was getting out of the hospital however the staff weren't allowing him to leave without someone picking him up and according to him he tells them "but i'm high on vicodene!!! i'll be fine!!! see i'm freakin' dancing!!! society will never even know that i'm sick!!! they will just think i'm just some nut high on something!!!" but the hospital was not having it. He called me to get cab for him "porque estos locos no me dejan salir de aqui solo!!" i'm going to miss you my crazy puerto rican...

I worked in the hospital this past semester...I got to get real close to a lot of my regular clients...it was always difficult to come in and find my patient "missing"....then find out that had "expired"...I hate that term! social work...it is rough business! I hope you get to feeling better :)
