Well, I managed to piss off my oldest son by failing to inform him that I was in the hospital. He found out by reading my previous post to this blog. I apologized to him appropriately. We have a close knit family and I was very much in the wrong. Now for my mea culpa, read on.
Never at any time during my two day stay in the hospital, did I feel I was in any danger of a serious problem. So, I did not consider it a life threatening series of events and I did not even think of calling anyone about my situation. Given my age, the fact that Patty had recently died, and my family’s concern for me, my failure to call was a huge mistake on my part. It will not happen again. Besides, I did not have my cellphone the first night, so I was “out of the loop” for a while. I have a lot more excuses, I will spare you from a recitation of them.
