H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

COMPASSION NOT HIGH ON CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL'S LIST

My daughter just found out that she was fired from her job at Children's Hospital New Orleans because she can't come back to work on Monday. She was notified today that she is one of eight out of 30 secretaries that are called back for Monday. Talk about short notice!! It doesn't matter that there are no schools for her two children, so they're enrolled in school in Orlando, FL, no electricity in her house (again, thanks to Rita), and no stores to buy the basic necessities of life. It's beyond their capacity to try to treat their employees with understanding and compassion, apparently. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, though. As I understand it, Children's was charging their employees for meals during Katrina when everyone was trapped by the flooding. These were people who had stayed behind to help with the patients' care. (But, hey, at least they were still getting their employee discount). Really makes me want to donate to them again during their next telethon.....NOT!!!

Once again the god of $$ reigns supreme. Sadly some people didn't learn anything from Katrina about what truly matters in life.
