Im not Being Dramatic, Im Sick Part 3

Its the much awaited final part of my appendix story!!!!

As I am sure you know I survived my appendix rupturing and my emergency surgery and other than being tired all the time I am doint well. Today I would like to take the time to wonder how it is anyone can recover t in a hospital.

Dont get me wrong the hospital staff was awesome and they took very good care of me except I couldnt get any rest in the place. I am a girl that recover quickly if I can get some sleep. I bet I could have left the next day if I could have sleep for 8 hours staright but no they dont allow that at hospitals.

Let me create a picture for you.....its 9PM and you are just starting to doze off when you hear this horrible noise. You look over and your sweet BF is snoring away!!!! But wait this is your hospital room if anyone is suppose to be snoring it should be you. You try to send him home but he wants to stay with you. But 10 minutes later he is snoring away again. So after taking a picture you beg him to leave so you can go to sleep.

Then just as you are falling asleep the following things happen:
  • 10PM: Aide comes in to tell you she is leaving and to see if you need anything else.
  • 10:30PM: Nurse comes in to get IV antibiotics ready to start at 11PM.
  • 11PM: Nurse comes in to start IV antibiotics.
  • Midnight: Nurse comes in to switch IV back to saline solution.
  • 1AM: Nurse comes in to take vital signs to make sure I am not dead.
  • 5AM: (I got about 2.5 hours of sleep) Lab tech comes in to take more blood.
  • 7AM: Nurse comes in to take vitals to ensure I didnt die yet.
  • 730AM: My liquid breakast arrives.
Thank goodnes I was released from the hospital later that day I was exhausted and really need to rest.


  1. I totally agree with you! When my BF was in the hospital, I was seriously baffled by the logic behind helping people heal in a place where they can only sleep in 45 minute increments, it made me crazy! And the food on top of the lack of sleep, totally processed crap. I really couldn't believe any of it, it was sad and scary. In our story though, I was the one sleeping and snoring by the side of the bed! I hope you're feeling better, take care of yourself!

  2. It's a pity that hospitals aren't more restful! I feel edgy just visiting people in one.

    Pretty cute about your snoring boyfriend!

    How are you feeling now? Here's to a speedy recovery - at home! :)

  5. ERRR Blogger deleted my lovely comment! Basically I was saying that I understand. I am an RN and no one gets rest in the hospital. I hope your feeling well at home soon!!

  6. Thats crazy but I understand how that goes. You can never get rest in that place. #commenthour

  7. oh goodness!! i have spent time in the hospital with my dad before and i often wonder the same thing!! don't they know sleep is the best medicine? ;) glad you are doing well! #commenthour

  8. My dad was in and out of the hospital a few times over the years with complications from diabetes and that was always his main complaint.
