Any time some one in DH's family goes to the doctor or hospital for a problem, they don't listen. They don't know what is wrong with themselves, or whoever is in the hospital. They don't know what they are supposed to do after they leave the doctor/hospital, they don't know what medicine they are on or the side effects. A nurse (or any one else for that matter, apparently) can come in with a syringe full of medication and they won't ask what it is. They ask no questions, and what they are told goes in one ear and out the other. It is completely frustrating to talk to any ill person in DH's family because it's like talking to a 3 year old. Last time FIL was in the hospital, I went with DH and personally asked the nurse what was going on. She was noticeably shocked that FIL hadn't asked already. When she left the room, I turned to him and said, "all you have to do is ask and they will tell you!" These are NOT a group of elderly, senile people, either. What adult gets admitted into the hospital and doesn't ask questions about their own health?!
