Vacation in the Hospital

  • Is it wrong that I am enjoying (relatively speaking) my time in the hospital today.  I am Facebooking, planning a party, booked a trip, and chatting with friends in a peaceful enviroment.
  • I am drinking the worlds WORST coffee!
  • The nurses are bickering amongst themselves.  Someone made the executive desision to move the garbage can and it causing a lot of chaos. A LOT OF CHAOS!
  • The nurses talk trash behind each other's back when ever someone leaves the room.  They are quite aware that it is not professional but they do not give a shit.
  • One of the nurses finally blew up and moved the garbage can back to its original home.
  • The rule of the day is, if you do not have rubarb, go the hell home.  I have learned that the nurses are very competitive about their rubarb creations.  Today they have brought in jams, jelly, cake, and all made from rubarb.
  • I have heard "Oh Yeah, you bet cha" about 4578 times.  Hmmmm....I know that Minnesota peeps get made fun of all the time, but I refuse to believe I sound like that.
  • I am the youngest one in this room by about 50 years!
  • There are a couple of regulars here that are discussing dildos and singing La Bamba.  Really.  I cannot make this stuff up!
  • I received 2 units (I said units...giggle) and I am already feeling peppier.  I hope to be up and running soon!
  • It is funny, because I checked my voicemail whilst getting blood and I had a message from the Red Cross tell me it was time to donate.  It would have been funny to show up and see the look on their face when they read my hemoglobin.


There you have it....may uber exciting day in the IV Treatment Room. 
If you ever need a blood transfusion, it is not bad.

Glad you're feeling better already!

The inner workings of hospitals never ceases to amaze me. Catty nurses, crazy patients...fun, fun.

I think you'll have to wait a while before you are eligible to donate blood again.

Hope things go very well for you.

Marci said...

Megan said...

You are being so positive. Feel better.

Lori said...

at least you enjoyed your time there - except for the coffee!

Hope this helps you feel better :D

Good for you, I am so proud of how fearless you sound!

In my trauma ICU, we usually always transfuse patients if their hemoglobin is below 7...can't believe yours was 6!

Those nurses sound very unprofessional and that's embarrassing that they are that way around patients. :(

Megsie said...

I can tell that you have more energy just from your post...so funny. Did you bring rhubarb for the nurses? Maybe you should have your hubby bring in something...pie? It is always wise to have a nurse in your corner!

Marissa said...

glad you are better and laughing at some pretty hysterical things happening around you :)

GISrunner said...

It's so apparent you're already feeling better! Hope today's an even better day as well. Give us an update!

Marlene said...

Just getting caught up - WOW that is some low iron. It must be nice to have an explanation for how you were feeling. Glad you are taking care of it and getting better!

Enjoy the rest of your hospital "vacation" and get well soon!

TNTcoach Ken said...

Wow, vacationing in the hospital!!! I don't think it will fly for the masses. Get well.

Camassia said...

lindsay said...

well i'm glad the nurses provided some 'entertainment' for you with the trashcan "drama". gasp! a trashcan!

formatii nunta said...

I hope that you will go home soon and will get better day by day. Good luck!

I was offered a transfusion after delivering my son by c-section, I was at a 6 too. I declined the immediate infusion on the condition they saw improvement in 4 hours, they did. I'm glad your process was problem free, if it should come up again, I think I'll do it.

tink said...

I had a three day stent in the hospital last week. On my last morning there, I had the door open and a light breeze was coming through, I was buzzing on a number of painkillers, I was drinking back coffee, and playing on my iphone. For a few hours I was totally relaxed and happy. I took in in and made the most of it.

I can't remember the last time I slept in and stayed in bed and drank coffee and did nothing.

I hope you are feeling okay.

What an entertaining stay you seem to have had! Maybe bickering nurses will be the next big thing to hit reality TV!
