Waiting for doc

Was a very rough night. Pain. Nurses coming in every 5 minutes. Painkillers and steroids. Now we are waiting for the surgeon to check me out and release me. We had the junior surgeons in at 6am – all perky and caffeinated and so darn young.

KoD is on his way with decent coffee, bless him.

I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed without interruptions.

    I hate hospitals. They wake you up every few hours no matter what. And besides, there’s always plenty of other noise and movement keeping you awake. Earlier this year when I spent a few days in the hospital with my son, they woke us at least twice a night.

    You will recover much better at home where you can sleep comfortably!

    Like I said, “a hospital is NO place for a sick person”! That’s actually my husband’s line & he worked in a hospital, so he would know!! Hopefully you will be more comfortable in your own bed!

    I take exception to all the negative hospital comments. Actually, I am surprised at the apparent lack of insight concerning what’s really going on here. If someone orders a blood draw at 4am, there’s a good reason for it…it’s not random harassment to interrupt the patient’s sleep. Surgery intrudes on a person’s physiology, and many things can go wrong immediately post-op, as well as during an operation. Medical professionals know sleep is healing, but sometimes drawing a stat lab trumps the need for sleep. Better to get the lab results proactively and deal with a developing problem if there is one, in a timely fashion.
