Hard Work

The first half of the day we spent doing the prep for Rick's knee replacement.  Blood work, swabs, etc and then classes, it was informative, but draining...the reality hits as you sit there and listen.

It is so draining to spend any amount of time in a hospital setting.  You would think being in a place of healing would be such, but when you walk around and look it is actually a place of suffering.
One of the nurses who did the lecture today said it best, you don't come to the hospital for rest, you do that when you go home.  I know from personal experience, healing is hard work and good health is something you have to work for and even then it can be a crap shoot.

My cup of hot tea is waiting and so is the bed, I can't wait.

Sweet dreams

  1. The hospital is definitely not a place to get rest. And I think rest is necessary for healing. It's probably a good thing they don' keep people there as long as they used to.
    Hope today is not so draining.
