This is a really crappy hotel.

I’m waiting to go into surgery, and the doctors are running late, so I thought I’d share my list of complaints about the experience so far.

  1. I’m hungry. (Dave is tired of hearing me say that.)
  2. I had to take off my nice, soft squishy socks and put on olive green hospital socks.
  3. The hospital gown is big enough to wrap around me at least three times, but somehow, is still not big enough to cover me up when I lie down.
  4. The New York Times crossword puzzle was too hard this morning.
  5. The IV needle in my hand is pinchy, and one of the pieces of tape is coming loose.
  6. Neither Dave nor I can figure out how to lower the head of the bed.
  7. I’m thirsty.
  8. I have to stay overnight.
  9. At first glance, room service seems like it’s going to be dubious.

But… all of the nurses have been very nice. They gave me two blankets, and asked if I was warm enough. Dave is here. I got lots of nice emails from people saying they were thinking happy thoughts.

That’s all my news.

Dave will update later.

    Poor honey – I hope this is all over quickly so you can return to ass-kicking immediately!
