2;45 after calling 3 times in the last 10 minutes finally they came with a cold compress for his knee.   i don't know what to do about the man saying he was never going to get any better than he is now and I should prepare myself. He is the director of pt in the kateria house .. i think that is wrong what he just did.   but don't know what to do .   its just these emoitional upsets every day .. it is so hard..
