ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

It's fanny-ily over



When I brought Chuck to the hospital today, the nurses fussed and tittered around him. All five of them. They dressed him in a hospital gown that had two holes in it. A hose attached to the holes and blew warm, calming air all over his body. The nurses handed him the TV remote and asked if he would like a fresh pair of socks or his pillow fluffed.

He said yes.

Then they started the painkiller drip.

He lay back in bed and smiled.

That's when I raised my hand and said, "Excuse me, I'd like to check my butt in, too."

Sigh.

Aww, you deserve to be pampered too, minus the procedure though? I vote spa day over hospital stay any time! Hope its going okay!

Spa day is definitely in order

Suzi said...

Happy he is doing well. Wow, five nurses eh? Can. You. Say. Spoiled? I didn't have more than ONE for a C-Section.

Jenners said...

Wow...he's living it up! Hope all is going well with recovery!

I'll skip asspa day, thank you.

FoN said...

Man, you don't get that kind of treatment up here. It's free for a reason, you know....

I'm glad he's doing okay!

Were there any cute male nurses too?

mo.stoneskin said...

Could you have climbed into bed too?

MadWoman said...

FIVE nurses?! Does he look like Brad Pitt or something?

I'd like to be fawned over like that too, and I sure wouldn't turn down the happy drugs either. I think you need a nice long spa weekend~!

Jeanne said...

I'm intrigued by the gown and the air hoses. Any chance of a picture of that?

Peggy said...

It DOES sounds kinda nice...but I'd rather not have any type of surgery...I say we all get hospital gowns, warm air blowing hoses and go sit at a dive bar and chat instead!

Hey, I didn't get any warm air thing when I had my colonoscopy - and I think it should be equal treatment for anything going in an out hole.

BTW: Your purse is coming some day! I made a cute fabric flower to go on it and have now lost it (the flower, not the purse!). So, I need 10-15 minutes alone to make a new one. It's actually a good thing, as I thought the first one was a little too big. Also, I'm going to make it as a pin so you don't have to have it on if you don't like it. Won't hurt my feelings!

♥georgie♥ said...

yes but typically hospital food sucks...so you could eat ...oh that would be too mean!

Glad all went well

Anne said...

And think, when he comes home, fussing and tittering will be your job. Can you get the hospital gown with the hose?

OldWestMom said...

And it's just the beginning. They've created a monster. Now you're going to have to live up to that.

You definitely deserve to be pampered too...I'd opt for a spa day over a hospital day any day... ;)

Those darn nurses and their pampering. Who do they think they are???
