Galling part II

January 12, 2009 at 8:16 AM (Uncategorized) ()

Everyone who has ever been in the hospital can empathize with the next question;

So they come marching in with blood pressure cuffs, pain meds, ekgs, and respiratory therapy things….

One would think that before surgery, *rest* or *sleep* might enter into it..

And it is nearing the “nothing by mouth time” of midnight this past Friday night at midnight….

I had done my usual ‘not eat much’ during the day on thursday, and had one meal of rice, chicken and a little guacamole that stayed with me,

No food friday.

Finally at 10:30 clear liquids were permitted until midnight….

I have never been so pleased by broth and lemon jell-o
