    I think it's the drugs.

    The food doesn't smell that great and her "beef stew" last night looked like a warmed up can of Alpo.

    My grandmother is at a county hospital.

    Maybe they have better food at county?

    Grandpa was at Kaiser and he was on a "heart healthy" and "diabetic" restricted diet. Dreadful.

    I'm thinking the seeing things goes along with the not feeling any pain part
    Elderly people in hospitals (or facilities) often get "sundowners" when they're disoriented and say and see weird things. They're perfectly normal during the day and then get weird at night.

    Wow! Do you wish you'd sued - at least to get whatever your out-of-pocket was?

    Yeah, restricted diets can be awful. The hospital where Sheryl had the kids was a non-Kaiser hospital that we had a contract with. Kaiser closed the hospital where I started with the company (and where I was born) in about 1996 or so. Ben was one of the very first Kaiser kids born at St. Vincent (born a month after the contract started). (The old hospital is now Adidas' United States headquarters.) We opened our new hospital about 6 years or so ago. Annie was born in the final years of the contract with St. Vincent.

    See, that's the thing. My insurance covered everything so I wasn't out of money that was my own. I still had my teeth, albeit with a lot more silver but they were still there.

    I had also dated one of the dental assistants and that's how I ended up with that guy in the first place.

    If I had known those two teeth were going to give me problems later on, I might have sued, but there was no way to know. My buddy extracted the fillings and replaced them with amalgam (?) so they wouldn't show and I was good with that.

    Probably replaced the amalgam with more modern materials.
    Why me?
