  • Such good news about the leg and that the brace is helping quite a bit...just think, all you're bitching about will be over shortly (if it isn't already)!

    Your gas story reminds me of when I had a colonoscopy! Hopefully that has blown out of you too! :rollinglaugh:

  • Glad you came through surgery and with pain gone in foot already, that is great news. The hosptial stay will be over soon and you will recover so much happier at home. I also had lunatic roommates 2 of them. How do we get so lucky? The first one cried/wailed all night about being in the hospital( she was like 40), and the second had spine surgery and the first night she was out of it and could not push her morphine pump, she yelled to me every 10 min to call the nurse. I felt sorry for her til the next couple nights as she got up once she got medication working she would get out of bed and pack and unpack her suitcase. I kept asking her "should you be doing that?" Any how I hope you will get home tomorrow and start "sleeping" in your own bed.
  • Good to hear from you - had been thinking of you over the weekend. I think I have a single room next week and although it can get lonely, it's better than some of the dodgy neighbours that you seem to find in hospital these days - are we the only sane ones???

    Update on Leg Shaving Fiasco ----- Had the wax this morning... sticky, chicken legs now :))(
  • When you complain more about being hungry than hurting. :-)

  • Yeah, that would have made a lot more sense. Just move you straight to the bed you were going to have anyway! My goodness! That must have sucked so bad :( I am sorry that nurse was sooo mean to you. I would have yelled at her if I was there. And I really would have, too!!!
  • I appreciate so much being able to vent to people who have been there and understand where I'm coming from.

    Yikes! A trip to the E.R. :( I am gonna have to go read that after I finish all my replies here.

    Hope you're doing better now :)
