So what does one do while spending 9 days in the hospital? Not much, but I did manage to take some pics so you could share my journey! Sounds fun right??
Here is the view from my bed. Because of my anxiety I always ask for a "window seat" so you can see the sunset.
Yes I am 43 years old & I still take stuffed animals with me. I spend 90% of my time in the hospital alone (Chris isn't allowed to take off work ~ don't ask) so they keep me company. I also have my polka dot bag that I always keep packed for the hospital. It came from my friend Jen & all of those things help me to feel not so lonely.
I keep lots of reading material in my bag.
Here's my hosptial dinner. This is pork in some lovely, gelatinous orange gravy, with stuffing & mashed potatoes. This give you a good idea of why I stick to mostly jello, pudding, ice cream, etc.
Hospital outfit...space cow nightgown, striped boxers & newly purchased rubber ducky slippers from the hospital gift shop. I will not wear hospital gowns unless I'm having a procedure. When I'm stuck in the hospital for long periods of time I have to be as comfortable as possible. (Side note: I figure in the last 12 months I've spent almost 1/3 of my life in the hospital!)

Rubber duckies. Everyone was jealous of my super cool slippers!
Flowers from my bloggie turned IRL friend Diane.
Last but not least, my husband Chris. He works a million hours per day, comes to check on me & keeps the boys going at home. I don't know what I did to get so lucky, but I'm really thankful that I did!
There you have my latest hospital visit. Sorry I couldn't share my pain killers with you, but they cut those off when I come home!
