The past 48 hours have felt like a truck ran over me multiple times.
I’m lucky I’ve had tim off work this week, but I wish I had something, anything to keep my mind busy from worrying about my dad.
Instead of wallowing, I’ve decided to post some FYI’s I’ve encounter through this whole ordeal. Please forgive me Abby, I’m too stressed to think of my own names for this so I’m stealing your idea. I have a feeling you won’t mind, and even if you do, I know you’ll still think I’m cool.
-There appears to be no shortage of good looking male nurses (however I look like utter crap most because of my anxiety and lack of interest in intensive grooming).
-Hospital food is not that disgusting (and at least my dad can eat now). I’ve been a few times to the cafeteria and they have everything from a giant salad bar to a frozen yogurt bar. Not to mention every kind of soda, chip, bar, coffee flavor, and sandwich. But with my luck, a very sorry assortment of teas.
-Even celebrities use the ER (yea, amid my dad, and some homeless people, I spotted Howie Mandel. I know, I’ve heard he was a germophobe).
-You really know who your true friend are in times of crisis.
-Exercise seems really trivial when you see so many people on bed rest
-Thanksgiving doens’t need to involve stuffing onesself, or even a turkey for that matter.
– I heard “Tangled” wasn’t bad but that doesn’t mean I’ll see it
– I heard “The Nutcracker 3D” sucked balls and theres very little ballet in it. You can’t have “The Nutcracker” without ballet!
-Laughter is a very good form of medicine
-Dropping off empty doughnut and/or pizza boxes at the nurses station is just plain cruel
-Sometimes, I trust nurses more than doctors
-My dad has trouble remembering most people’s name but he knows mind. I’d like to think its because I’m extra special 😉
-When everyone calls me asking if “I need anything” and I’m tempted to reply “Yes, I need an Ipad, gas in my tank, a James Franco lookalike to be my boyfriend, and I’d like my dad safe and sound”. But I think it might be too much for them to handle.
