So Robbie and I were bored towards the end of my hospital stay and were coming up with all these things that you know you're in the hospital too long when... so I decided I'd blog about it!! Why not right??? I haven't blogged in a month so I might as well slam the blog with updates! So here goes....
You know you're in the hospital too long when....
-You count the drips on the floor in the hallway wondering what it is or where/who it came from.-You start taking pictures of pictures in the hospital (there was some freaking looking pictures down in the hallways)
-You start asking about your neighbors
-When your nurses and everyone else knows you and your spouse by your first name-You start having races with the Spirometer
-You see other family members at the hospital visiting another one of your family members
-You know all the mute buttons on all the machines
-Your spouse knows where all the food/vending machines are in the hospital
-Your spouse starts trying out the equipment they have for you
-You think the variation of food is a change in color of jello
-You start giving directions to people out in the hallways
-You know all the channels on the tv
- You start saying bye to your neighbors as they're leaving and you're not
-You wake seconds before the phlebotomist comes in the room to draw your blood every morning
-Your fresh flowers somebody has brought you/sent you has died
-Your bartering with your spouse for your lunch/dinner
-You have to tell the nurses what time the main doors at the hospital lock
-If you know all the generic names of all the drugs you're taking
-You can start joking with the doctors about drugs
-You start calling your room "The Suite"

-You try to figure out what everyone else is in the hospital for
-You ask nurses if they'll sneak food in for you (I really wanted a frosty.....so this was my version of one I could have)....
-The nurses can take your vitals and not really wake you up because you're used to it
-People start offering to nurse your child for you until you get out
-You start taking pictures of everything you're eating
-Your IV tape starts eating away at your skin
-You name your IV pole "Ed"
