Why did I get home so late today?

A 60 y/o male with chronic hepatitis C, cirrhosis, HTN, DM, PVD, renal impairment, S/P BKA, S/P CVA, DJD and chronic osteomyelitis "dropped by" the office today, unannounced, in the middle of a hectic day.

Patient: "My daughter (who has been his caregiver for a number of years) is getting married this Saturday (two days from now) and will be moving out of the house on Sunday (three days from now). She does all my cooking, cleaning, helps with bathing and makes sure I take all my medications on time. I need for you to get me in to a nursing home tomorrow."

Oh yeah, that's why.
