Urban Survival

Bambi comes up, and does the dishes, and tells me her stories.  We are talking about medical horror stories.  My sister in the hospital, and today was a HUGE day for her.  She was off the ventilator, breathing on her own for 12 hours!  This is HUGE for her. .since she’s been in the hospital for 42 days now.

Bambi’s SS payment, well they took a huge chunk out for Medicaid, so she has to go to the Bishop Sullivan to try to get some.  At Bishop Sullivan, people are milling around, in old, sometimes dirty clothing, sometimes unwashed.. hair that needs cutting badly.   Bambi has a two page list of meds.  They refer us to another place, and Bambi gets a box of food.

Bambi’s face is blotched where they gave her the wrong meds at Truman.  She is talking about the jobs she had, the best one was being in a warehouse…and Church’s chicken.
