Ok so last night went better. He showed up about a half hour into my shift and all I could think was why? why did he have to come in the start of the shift, what a way to start. So he didn't say anything right away. He came to the desk and asked if the dietician spoke to his wife about her food preferences, because he was paying for a meal and it should be what she likes to eat. I told him yes they came down and talked with her about her likes and dislikes, he said well my wife said no, they didn't come. So I called the kitchen and found out for sure that they did. He said thanks katie for checking on it. WHAT? I thought to myself he said thanks to me. Well the rest of the time he was there was pretty quiet suprisingly. But he still wont acknowledge me as a nurse, he calls me by name, which isn't bad, better than the other night, I'll take what I can get.
I don't know if managment spoke to him or not. No one said much to me about it yesterday at work except the admissions lady, she said sorry to hear you had a bad night. So I guess everything is ok now, at least so far. I still was feeling a little nervous around him, its like walking on eggshells, because I know the wrath I will have to face if something happens to his wife, like a fall or something.
Once again thank you all for your kind and encouraging words. I really appreciate the support here at AN.
