Conversations with the staff

Slightly incompetent, well-meaning, totally over-helpful night nurse: Oh my goodness, you should be asleep!

Me: but you’re about to give me a breathing treatment.

SIWMTOHNN: But you should’ve been asleep an hour ago.

Me: you gave me all the meds an hour ago.

SIWMTOHNN: Well make sure you get some sleep after this.

Me: Aren’t you drawing blood in an hour?

SIWMTOHNN: …. oh, yeah…..

I swear, the amount of time I spend resisting the urge to roll my eyes should earn me an award.

But I do have a pretty awesome survival kit to get me through the night.

    Okay, hospitals seem to be all the same with no difference where in the world you are.

    Argh! I saw this first hand when M. was so sick. Cannot get good sleep in a hospital, no way – no how. Good Luck and Heal Well.
