Clearly, things are a little strange here in Sarah-land. I was admitted mid-March, and will likely be here until around mid-April. Every doctor and nurse who comes asks if I’m bored yet. The answer? Sort of. Sometimes I have times where I don’t really feel like writing, or reading, or doing Sudoku or any of it at all.
But, I do feel very fortunate. I have a nice large private room, with a decent view from my seventh-story window that catches the sunrise in the morning. My own bathroom. Food is… um, average, but it’s certainly better than what hospital food could be, so I can hardly complain. In fact, I was expecting a strict, healthy diet, but that’s not what it’s been like. I think I’ll put on a bit of weight here though (other than pregnancy weight) simply by the fact that I can have chocolate cake EVERY DAY. No, I’m not kidding. And, it’s really good chocolate cake too.
So, though a month in hospital may be no one’s idea of a picnic, I’m doing all right. I may be missing a bit of variety in my life, but it is reassuring to know that if anything happens, I’m in the right place.
P.S. I did finally finish my crochet bunny! Unfortunately I embroidered her eyebrows on slightly too much of a slant, so she does look rather worried, which has caused several spontaneous fits of laughter from me whenever I look in her overly-concerned direction. Everyone says it gives her ‘character’ though, and it would be a pain to fix, so, we have an anxious bunny forever-more. But hey, my little girl will hopefully love all the worry out of her contracted eyebrows, and we all get anxious sometimes! Bunny stuffies are no different.
