Love the 'chuckle' today!! It coincides with the sympathectomy I will be having very soon. I'm not really looking forward to spending a night or two in the hospital. :blush: Hopefully it will all be well and it will only be one night. :D

Hi Purr

I know how you must be feeling because I'm due to go in and have neck surgery next week and will have to stay for about 4 days. The thoughts of staying in hospital are not very nice since I never seem to be able to sleep and of course the nerves that you have to deal with!

I'm sending lots of Best Wishes and hope all goes well for you.

Purr and Buttons,
Hospitals are definitely not the best of places to stay and we have all had our share of time spent there. I found that a headset helped a lot at night buffering the hospital noises. I had a roommate once with Alzhiemers who had her days and nights mixed up so she would sleep all day and talk to herself out loud all night. :emoticon-insomnia: There's not much you can do for the lights and constant interruptions, except a sleeping aid. Best wishes to you both.

Hello All

I never stay a night in hospital without my wax ear plugs, they work wonders...and yes a sleeping pill! :emoticons-yes:

Take care.

Fortunately, I'll be in a private room. The only noises waking me up will be my own :VeryHappy:

I wish you the best with your neck surgery too, Buttons.
It's been quite some time since I spent any overnights in the hospital, but I'm with you, on the nerves part of it and the inability to sleep. Of course, we all know we are awakened so they can give us sleeping pills, right?!

Soft Hugs to you!

Purr, may your surgery be swift and your recovery speed be without to much tenderness, or pain. Have a safe journey into the twilight of pain medication and a safer recovery. Today is the day and hopefully you will be calling one of us tonight to let us know how you are. Maybe you will even be writing us by tomorrow. I'll be thinking about you often throughout the day. You go girl.Posted Image
Strength and Warmth,
