2nd night in hospital

Well got to spend yet another evening in the Neuro ICU. The doctor who was supposed to move me to the'floor, didn't show up until 8'30 p.m., and then he said that because I was stable, he' figured he'd just let me stay here in the ICU, Which, is silly to me, cause, I'm stable, sable is good right? doh! Any whoo, got him to give me some pain meds and something to help me sleep, just get going on some pretty good sleep with ear plugs in and everything, and at 3:30 the lab teach bursts in with her happy self announcing she needed to get my blood. I figured that since i have a port in my arm already, she could just get it there....nope honey, gotta stick ya. OH JOY!..at 3 am. I did have the wear-with-all to ask her if she planned her rounds that way, she just smiled and said Nope! AHH the ignorance is bliss age, meets the grumpy woman in a ICU bed age. Could be trouble!!

Well then after she left I tried for a little more sleep, but the nurses were right at my door, which is right at the nurses station, bring so loud, laughing and cutting up. I'm serious, I figured ICU meant Intensive care unit, not It's crazy up in here! Sorry, Crabbiness is setting in!

Supposedly the neurosurgeon is supposed to come round between 5:30 and 6:30am, so maybe they'll move me, or send me home at his point. Don't know, but I would really love a nice hot shower about now!

Jamie's bringing me some La Baguette for breakfast so that should be yummy!
Food, Food, Glorious Food. Any of you Memphis folks, know how wonderful La Baguette is!!

I'll try to be a little less crabby next go round...

Bon Courage!


  1. The worst part about hospital stays is the lack of sleep. I swear they time waking you up when you are in your deepest sleep. Hope you get some good news and some good rest soon!

  2. If I had known you were awake I would have called. I had the hardest time sleeping last night - but mine was the snoring bed partner! Lawd, I needed a sleeping pill too!

    Love you Danielle. I hope they can break you out of there today!

  3. let it out, hun! you have a right to be crabby- waking u at 3am sucks. I'll keep praying. Sending you all my love and positive vibes! Bon COURAGE!!!

  4. You are entitled to be crabby!
