Hospitals have miles of shiny tile floors - Different strokes for different folks

ahhhh... what I could do with a fresh pair of socks on this floor.....

I think they were ready for me to leave...

What? Cream of Wheat again???????

GREETINGS from a big dang hospital in Arlington:


Not exactly an Easy Rider outing with the boys... but when I had a stroke recently I was so elated just to be alive and kicking that I went for a little walk down the hall and enjoyed it- so I just kept on walking. I got out of range for the portable heart monitor and the nurses got (a little bit ) worried. What's the big deal? You'd think they had never seen a flatline before....

WELLLLL --- so I kinda walked all over the place- I now know where the cafeteria, laundry, temporary morgue, operating suite, and the emergency room is (I don't remember that entrance)... hmmm

....and the chapel, volunteer room, main entrance. Ok- maybe all of the first floor. Long halls are neat- don't have that much smooth floor around my neighborhood.

Alright already-- so me and Forest Gump took a road trip!!...whatever....

Anyway... they sent my poor nurse out looking for me when I stayed a bit longer than usual- and out of range.

I have now been scolded and told to stay in SIGHT. (ha!-- no way))

I always had a problem with conformity. ALWAYS been out of the box...

Anyhoo- I'm back. Phbllltttt!

It's gonna be a LOOONG day.......

Got Juicy Fruit?

    Hmmm so still in shock then? Remember what they say about ye don't know what ye have till it's gone? So be careful else it will be a matron on ye butt and them folks have no sense of humour. I sure theres many floors to explore yet. Good to know ye on the mend my friend. :)

    12-13-11 They gave up and turned me loose- but on "parole". I have to check back with a bunch of doctors in a few weeks for a pee test and --- to give blood? Heck- it was just a little walk.... I'm pretty much good to go and Forest is waiting for me, so.... c ya! And thanks for helping me to laugh through all of this! Life darn sure IS a box of chocolates! Still haven't figured out what the heck was in that one, but I'm just glad to be back among the splendiferous.... LIFE IS GOOD!
