My new career ...

I think have discovered a new career path this month.The doctor is IN.
My mom had surgery on the 11th of January. I was needed to assist in her care.

Some beautiful flowers arrived the next afternoon. Mom was still in the fog of anesthesia and pain medications.
In between checking on my patient,
 She wasn't looking so good here,says she felt like she looks here.
I spent my time watching one of the 2 TV's or
checking out the view.
The hospital has a new "patient tower" that just opened in August 2011. All private rooms.
Each room has different art, the couch folds out into a bed for a family member to spend the night.
Tons of fancy lights.
Lastly, just before discharge on the morning of the 16th, I checked out the oxygen mom had been breathing.

Stopped for a prescription on the way home. Once home, I ordered the patient to take a nap... I was tired from all my doctoring. I was a big hit with all my mom's surgeons, nurses and PCT's.

Grr-bye for now,
