Just a stolen moment

I'm about to leave the office and go to my friend's house. She is doing very well and was released from the hospital this afternoon. She's up and walking without support and I might not need to spend the whole day there tomorrow. I'm sure she would like some alone time as she says the nurses were in her room more than once an hour for the whole time she was there.

She has a little glue and a little tape, no stitches, no bandages. Times have certainly changed.

But, the biggest surprise we got was last night when the nurse brought in the room service menu for her to order dinner. Yes, room service. They don't bring up carts of meals anymore. And, you don't have to order a day in advance. You just call, like a hotel and someone brings whatever you want to the room. And, it looked good! Fancy that. I thought bad food was part and parcel of a hospital stay.

See ya'. And, thanks for all your kind words. It's hard not to be good with the good role models I've had.

Wow things have changed I wonder if we have room service here in Canada .It's been thirty years since I was in a hospital and all I can remember is that awful rubber jello .LOL

You're a good friend, glad to hear your friend is doing better. The last time my mother was in the hospital, she stayed in something similar. It looked more like a hotel room than a hospital room.

The hospital in our city has room service meals. The menu is limited, but you can order your meal and in 45 minutes its in your room.
Glad to hear your friend is doing well.

After seeing the apothecary's office at Colonial Williamsburg earlier this week, I'll say medicine has come a LOOOOONNNNNGGGG way! Thank goodness! Glad to hear your friend is doing well.

So glad your friend is doing well.

I've had a couple of hospital stays and I have to say the food was pretty good. Not fancy room service food like your friend, but it was decent. Yes, times have changed.
