The Hospital...

- the good, the not so bad and the not so ugly -
It wasn't bad...

I got a private room, with a great view...I saw the sunrise each morning.

At this hospital, they have room service...

and the food is pretty darn good.
It works like when you stay at a hotel, you call, they make whatever you want...
then someone brings your food up to your room, piping hot,
always with a kind word and a smile!

I won at cards, War and Uno

and you get flowers.
These came from my sister and my niece...

these came from my mom!

So are you getting my drift, it's not so bad...
and you won't believe what you get when you leave...

A Goodie Bag

I had one good cry, it was necessary and cathartic!

Wonderful nurses, amazing doctors and 3 meals a day severed to me...
pretty flowers, an amazing view, what more could I have asked for.

and just a small fyi, my hair looked great.
I usually rock the Marge Simpson look but for some reason, that didn't happen.
Life is good!



  1. Hello, I am so glad you were released even though it seems like your enjoyed your hospital stay. Your flowers are pretty. I always heard that hospital food was bad, you must have been at a nicer (hotel) hospital. Stay well and take care. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  2. I love your positive outlook. I like that you always see the glass brimming full, not just half. I am glad you got to go home. I have been in the hospital enough to know its not always so easy. You are just special. I am glad you are home and I hope you get to get lots of rest and feel all better and back to your lovely self.
    You are such an inspiration to me. Chuck too.

  3. Yey, Debbie! Though it wasn't too unpleasant, I am glad you are out and about again!

  4. Room service? Yellow walls? Gift when you leave?

    Are you in some kind of socialist paradise?

  5. Did I miss something somewhere? Why were you in the hospital? Loving your flowers for sure. Beautiful and I hope all is well and you are doing great..

  6. Sending hugs, dear Debbie. hope you are doing better.

  7. So happy you're back home, Debbie!

    I loved the menu where I was hospitalized also, and then the rehab gave lots of choices. The first time in my live I was eating 3 meals a day. Of course, now I'm back to 1 or 2. :)

    Your room looks so nice, and the flowers are beautiful. You are very loved!


  8. Oh Debbie, your flowers are so beautiful! I had restaurant style dining my last surgery and we loved it. The food was delicious and thehubs could also order and pay his separate. I hope all is well!

  9. I didn't know until this morning that you'd been sick and I'm so glad you're home and better (I am late visiting everybody -- we went to Seattle and Tacoma to visit family and I didn't have time to catch up with all my blog friends.) Today I just started to visit people in random order and the first post I read was dedicated to you and your getting well!

    Your hospital sounds amazing -- love the room service option. Still I am very glad you're home -- and I bet your sweet husband does a pretty good room service until you feel like going out or cooking!

  10. WOW! That is certainly not your average hospital.I'm glad they treated you well.

  11. You are wonderfully able, to make the best, of everything, Dear One!!!!

    But, for a hospital stay, it does look quite plush. :-)

    Certainly glad you had at least one good cry! If not, we would begin to wonder, if you are not human! Really!!! No one, can be looking on the bright side, ALLLLLLL the time.

    Happy Lughnasa!
    Or Happy Lammas, if you say it, the English way!

  12. Gkad to hear you're home and hopefully feeling all better! Your flowers are bright and beautiful and i hope youre right near your BEST window watching the little birds busy at their stations!

  13. As far as hospital stays go that sounds like a pretty good one. Glad they took care of you! And especially glad you're out now! Rest up.

  14. The one thing that irks me about hospitals and healthcare in general is that even simple things like food, bandages, and other stuff are marked up like crazy.

    I hope you are doing well

  15. Oh Debbie, so sorry to hear that you have been unwell. The MonSter no doubt. I am happy you are out of the hospital, even if your stay was not so bad. I am lucky, no hospitals for me, we have the opportunity to have home health care if the situation is not life threatening.

  16. Great to see you are up and about again. Looking forward to seeing more happy adventures. Have a wonderful week Debbie :)

  17. That seems like a very upscale hospital and much more inviting than what I am used to.

  18. I am sorry to hear you were in the hospital but glad you are out now! Thinking of you.

  19. As far as hospital stays go that sounds like a pretty good one. Glad they took care of you! And especially glad you're out now! Rest up.


  20. I just love how optimistic and looking on the bright side you have about things, that makes it easier to get through I am sure. Glad you had that cry, I know that helps to relive a lot for me too, not good to try to keep that bottled up, just get it out and get on with it I say :) Bonus on those beautiful flowers too, so nice of them to bring some extra beauty to the place!

  21. Oh, your experience was better than mine. I will endeavor to keep from getting heat stroke ever again. There were no positives about my experience. Just glad I survived it.

  22. You are on one of the most upbeat people I know," my friend!!
    I am so glad that you are home.
    Although if one has to be in the hospital, it sounds like where you were is the place to be.
    Take good care of you.

  23. Debbie, I tried three times to make a comment on this post, but will be lucky today it seems. What can I say,'s all been said, so a belated Welcome Home, and a big hug.

  24. Sometimes a good cry works wonders ...

    It was good to read this post and to see the pictures.
    The hospital looks and sounds great and your flowers are gorgeous.

    Glad you are back home.
    Sending hugs to you.

    All the best Jan

  25. Glad to hear they took good care of you Debbie. Welcome home :)

  26. Thanks for sharing your hospital adventure! I am happy you were well taken care off. Yes, a good cry does help; it can be very healing. Most of all I am happy you are back home with your goodie bag.
    Blessings, prayers, love and hugs for you!
