Hiram is up and at ‘em after Tuesday’s back surgery to remove the disk fragment pressing on his sciatic nerve. Since the source of his back pain was a disk fragment from the ruptured L4 vertebrae that migrated to the L3 region, I think 3 hospital thoughts for Thursday are in order. Here goes:
- We are very thankful for modified laprascopic neurosurgery and gifted surgeons who perform them. Thank you, Dr. Brandenberg!
- Nurses really are the worst patients. Especially if they’re
incarceratedbeing treated in the hospital where they work.
- Caring for a post-surgery spouse in the hospital is much easier than caring for a post-surgery newborn, toddler, preschooler, or adolescent child. May you never be able to make the comparison!
Do you have something to say about a recent hospital experience, either as patient or caregiver? Leave a comment!
