It’s morning and I am awake for the moment. They come by to take my vitals every 4 hours, day or night, so it is impossible to get more than 4 hours of consecutive sleep here. I get it that it’s important for them to check that stuff, but sometimes one has to wonder if it wouldn’t be more productive to let me sleep for more than 4 hours at a shot as I’m here to be checked for seizures that I get in my sleep.
The good news is that, after reminding them that I needed my morning medication this morning, I did actually get breakfast. I’m sort of annoyed that I have to be on top of them about this stuff. Also, the nice lunch lady who takes your order just walked in to take mine and they STILL don’t have me in the system as a vegetarian. I don’t know who one has to kill to get a vegetarian meal around here, but I am so glad Geoff brought me food last night. It sounds like I am getting pasta for dinner tonight with no sauce. Seriously.
Today is med student day. I’ve already had visits from two doctors who have promised me more visits from a passel of med students who I have seen wandering up and down the halls like ducklings. I’m not sure how I feel about that as they’re all med students at my alma mater. Oh well, at least I don’t have to wear hospital clothing like all the other poor suckers here.
Thanks, everyone, for all of the links and such that you’ve sent me. Some of this stuff has been truly outstanding.
