  •  OK, let's start with what's important! (18+ / 0-)

    ((((((((((((((((irishwitch))))))))))))))

    what an incredibly frustrating day, on SO many fronts!

    trying to think of something that might help....  I don't know the protocol involved, but if you're going to see your GP (the Valium), MIGHT it be useful to talk to him about the nasal spray? MAYBE, if your GP talked to someone "higher on the totem pole" than the nurses, something might happen???

    if this is all old news to you, just disregard, but... teh very-allergic-all-his-life-so-he-learned-a-LOT!-about-it DH says longterm use of Afrin can actually make congestion worse ("rebound congestion"), AND it has a vaso-dilator ingredient, which would probably be contraindicated with whatever meds he's on. if he has chronic congestion? maybe a nasal cortico-steroid??? although that may also be a no-no for heart patient...

    probably talking to an MD is the only thing that will help, not nurses, but a doctor.

    so sorry about the MiL. WE love you, and teh pooties LOVE YOU, and BEN LOVES YOU. Hang on to that and maybe the MiL will survive this too 8-0!!! (I mean, maybe YOU will be able to hang on and not strangle her before Ben gets home, 8-)

      but I have learned that love without a scintilla of comprehension of the people you're loving is maddeningly frustrating. THis IS the woman who insisted I read the John Hagee books (I swear I TRIED, twice, couldn't make it past page 40). I finally told her I oculdn't read it because his sources were so baised and I had founf 10 flatout lies int he first ten pages.

      Her: "Everyone's entitled to his opinipon."

      Me: Yes they are--but they are not entitled to make up theri own facts. When you claim something in the Q'oran and  you look it up--and it isn't there or they've taken it out of context--that is not opinion, it is either a deliberate lie or a factual error." Her: turns on heel and marches into her bedrrom in dead silence.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

        My SIL gave me a bunch of books, one of them being authored by Michelle Malkin. Yuck.

        I used it to prop up one leg of our bed. Then finally I got rid of it, and now I sleep much better!

      •  Oh my ..you are nicer than me (0+ / 0-)

        someone gave me a Hagee book and I dropped it in the garbage right in front of them.   I said, " I don't read trash...hypocritical trash at that"....

        (((( hugs)))))
        I don't know if you knew it but I caused a stir some years back when I posted a letter I had written to James Dobson on another site and it still gets picked up now and then and I called Palin's preacher.   So.. I have no sympathy for pushy preach ins..even from family.. You are much nicer than me on this matter.
