So true Moiraine! I am a firm believer in asking questions and QUESTIONING procedures, and medication.

That's one of the reason's I'm a big fan of ALWAYS having an Advocate with you when ever possible in the hospital or E.R. Someone to be your eyes, ears and voice, because obviously your not at your best or you wouldn't be there. There may be symptoms you'll forget, medication you've forgotten to mention. Your Advocate can help double check that your wishes are respected and your medical history, concerns and allergies are being taken seriously!

It's my body, my life...and if the nursing staff or doctor make a tragic mistake...a simple, "Geez, I'm sorry"...isn't going to fix it.
