Life from inside the walls of Hospital Rm 366

I've been in the hospital now for four days and the native is starting to get restless! My only privledges right now are bathroom but I'm hoping to upgrade to wheelchair next week!

The nurses are extremely sweet. They have obviously seen lots of women that have had to set up temporary residence inbetween these hospital room walls. I was hoping my time here would be short but unfortunately my condition hasn't really improved so I may be here awhile. It may be time to bring in some family pictures and a fica tree.

The food is a hit or miss. But after working in hospitals most of my career and eating my fair share of hospital cafeteria food I knew that was to be expected. Though I think it's time to start having my family and friends smuggle in some Taco Bueno!

Josh will be able to bring Riley up here soon and that should be an interesting visit! My guess is he will immediately jump in the bed and make himself right at home!

The little one is doing just fine. Apparently she's perfectly content laying around all day and I think she's enjoying all this attention!

I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful support system. I wouldn't be able to get through all of this without our family and our friends! The visits, the calls, and the messages have really made the last four days go by faster than I expected!

I was in room 402 for many weeks and saw so many horrible things. It changed my life forever and I never had the words to blog about it.

I should.

Thanks for making me remember!
