On Hospital Time

Well, we're sitting on "hospital time."

I've heard people talk about South American time, where 2 o'clock means sometime mid-afternoon.

Hospital time is kinda similar.  "Morning" means between 5 a.m. and 2 p.m.  Really, it's the nature of the beast.  Until we can figure out how to schedule our emergencies, unexpected events, and just the ebb and flow of life, I think that's the way it's going to be.

That said, we should bust out of here sometime this "morning."  (Hospital morning, you know.)

Haven't seen the doc yet, but our prescription is ready downstairs, and his highest oxygen needs yesterday were 4.5.  We didn't even need to have the safety net of bumping above 5 for a brief amount of time.

So tonight we'll sleep in our own beds, grateful for all the help we get up here, but also grateful to pass their expertise onto someone else who needs it.

"There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home."
