About hospitals

When I was much younger, I thought it would be fun to be in the hospital. For nothing life-threatening, of course. Maybe to get a tonsillectomy or have a baby.

Now that I think about it, I just wanted attention. Maybe some cards and flowers would’ve been the cure. 

Instead, my first visit to the hospital was not so great. Honestly, I can’t remember most of it. I guess I learned my lesson there. Now, I have been hospitalized more times than I can remember. And it is not fun.

I guess whoever said to be careful what you wish for was absolutely correct. Now I am wishing I had never seen the inside of a hospital—as a patient, anyway. I visited more than my fair share of family members, and I had a lot of meetings at hospitals because of my line of work.

In conclusion, I guess I would prefer not to go to the hospital again. As a patient, I mean.

Totally unrelated, I had a very bad impromptu power wheelchair practice session in the basement over the weekend. It’s one thing to go down a long, empty hallway, and entirely another to drive in a place with obstacles. I will go back for more, though. Because that is what I do.

Great scrub tops for the price. They fit well and there are 3 divided pockets on the right side (may not be deal for lefties) with a net on the inside of the largest pocket for even more organization.
