Hi there,
It’s awful you had to be subjected to what I’d consider abuse. To answer your question No, I agree he shouldn’t have done that. When I’ve been with my mom Ive seen the nurse lift her left breast under her blouse or a gown and other times go under her blouse but never touched her nipples nor were here breast’s exposed. In the first place all that breast tissue is going to make hearing the heart sounds more difficult. There are some nurses here that I’m sure will be along to explains proper placement.
I would call the the County Medical Society although your State licensing board might be a better place. But the nurses will probably have better guidance than I do. When I reported a doctor to the County Medical Society they didn’t believe me even though I had irrefutable proof of his incompetence, however we did prevail in court. In our experiences doctors support doctors and aren’t interested in facts.
I wish you luck,

I recon I could check those sites out but the use of that nasty 4 letter word you used at the end is a definite turn off.
Meals on wheels sounds good. Since I’m capable of doing you know what although not very well I wonder if I’d qualify.

It mentions ingredients, to me that mean cooking and you know how I feel about that!

That’s an idea, no cooking or shopping is right up my alley. I never thought about it. I’ll have to check into that. Do you qualify for meals on wheels? Although I can stay alive but not sure it would qualify as cooking.

The site you suggested, I get the impression you have to cook and there isn’t very specific information on the first or second page then you have to sign up before continuing.

Did the ECT treatment cure you?

1 day ago · Experiences with Geriatric ECT in Depression & Anxiety

Someone very close to me had Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and said it was horrible beyond words but she was treated 60 years ago.
I wouldn’t have it done even today because of the danger of Amnesia, specifically Retrograde Amnesia. This type of Amnesia effects memories at the time of trauma and before, in this case ECT treatment. Memories may be lost for a very short term, weeks, months and can be years or even be a permanent loss.
I had Retrograde Amnesia although not from ECT but I lost every memory I ever had, I was 15 at the time. Not one of those memories ever returned. My Amnesias were caused from Induced comas but I’ve had Retrograde Amnesia numerous times and no memories ever returned. I don’t know how often this happens but it is possible.
There are other methods I would try first, one being
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS.) I would only do ECT as a very last resort.
I wish you the best of luck,

She has no reason to believe he’s dead. Although her spouse needs to be served in a divorce proceeding, if he can’t be located there are alternative methods to serve him, newspaper, investigators, Social Security, Driving Records or however the court deems necessary. I doubt this is the first abandonment case and she needs to see an attorney in my opinion to find out her rights and also to protect herself from responsibility due to any possible criminal activity on his part, IRS issues being one.
I’m my opinion the wife should be told if only to protect her and her son. I think by not being told the problem is only being compounded. I feel it is unreasonable for you to think all is fine with your daughter-in-law and grandson regardless of what they say to you or how they act. Now that your suffering has been eased, why are they not entitled to the same?
Good luck to all,

First I basically know nothing about the law but why would he have to be declared legally dead. Couldn’t she simply file for divorce on desertion grounds?
