07:36 – Things aren’t going very well with Barbara’s dad.

The phone rang at 2:30 this morning. It was Barbara’s dad calling from the hospital, saying that he hadn’t had anything to eat or drink for two days and demanding that she come and get him and take him home. Barbara told him that it was 2:30 in the morning and that she’d visited him yesterday afternoon and he’d eaten dinner then. She then called the nurses’ station. The nurse on duty told her that her dad had been acting that way since she came on shift at 19:00.

Just to make things a little worse, it looks as though Barbara’s mom may have pneumonia. Barbara is taking her to the doctor today, and possibly for a chest X-ray. Then she’ll head over to the hospital to pick up her dad and take him home.

At least Barbara got a chance to relax a bit yesterday evening. We were about to start watching the next episode of World Without End on Netflix streaming when I mentioned all of the horrible reviews it had gotten. Barbara said she thought I liked it. I told her that I thought it was terrible. So did she. She was watching it because she thought I liked it, and I was watching it because I thought she liked it. So we bagged it, rated it one star, and removed it from our Netflix queue. We instead watched the first episode of Rough Diamond, starring David Jason from Frost.
