Day 204 – Here We Go Again

Yesterday when I was told by Inova Alexandria Hospital personnel that I could not visit my sister and had to leave the hospital it was supposedly because they did not have a sitter to eagle eye me during my visit.  I was assured they would call me and let me know when they had one available.  When I called and spoke with the nursing  supervisor on the floor my sister was on I was told they thought she might be discharged and to call back later.  At around 2:20 I called the nursing facility to see if she had been brought back so I could head out there before the end of my restricted visiting times and they had not heard she would be sent back today.  I called the hospital and spoke with the floor supervisor again.  This time she told me I would have to speak with guardian Labowitz to get any information on visitation.  I reminded her what she had stated earlier about a sitter and she repeated that I would need to speak with Labowitz.  I emailed him and asked if I would be able to visit Anastasia in the hospital this evening.  He responded that she would be returned to the nursing facility sometime after 4:30pm, he then stated I would not be able to see her until Monday.  So Anastasia has gone through a very traumatic situation and other than several hours on Wednesday she has been denied her family to comfort her and only then because they thought she was dying.
