My Hospital Stay

So I'm here, all checked in and "settled" at the hospital.

I'm pretty hungry- I had to stop eating before Midnight last night. Right now I've got an IV put in- sexy.

My phone ran out of minutes and I didn't get a chance to get a refill card, so I haven't been able to call anyone. I used the phone in my room to call home, but Mom was already asleep.

The hospital here is pretty nice- it seems a lot fancier then SF General. The nurses are all dressed like a medical Soap Opera.

I've got Wi-Fi, which is good. I saw a locked access point, and when I asked the nurse she came back a little later with a WEP key.

So here I am, lying on a stiff mattress with a really large towel/blanket, dressed in an unflattering pink hospital gown. At least it's heavier than those paper things back home.

Yeah, I'm a little nervous, but statistically I should be OK. Here's hoping I fall into the Majority for once. I guess the part I'm most nervous about is the Going Under part. Which is probably ironic, considering all the times I've drunk myself to sleep.

Well, wish me Luck! Hopefully I'll catch up with you guys in a couple of days :)

Hi Lara!

I recall your reports from when you were but a geeky young pup back in Ol' Virginny!

Nice to happen across "you" again at so momentous a time in your progress. Best wishes! Not that you needed ffs, mind.
