B in the Hospital!

My darling B is in the hospital boo hoo! Since I like to keep certain parts of our life private, I shall not divulge more details than necessary on the reason he's being admitted. Suffice to say that it is for observation purposes and this visit is way overdue. Ever since he found out that he will be admitted for a couple of days, B has been nothing but depressed! Well you would be too if this is your first time staying in a hospital and you don't have a say in it because the Doctor said so! ;)

Sad at the thought of being stuck in the hospital!

I took the day off today, and got up early to accompany B to the hospital. The night before, I emailed my clients, informing them that I'll be on leave this week. So it was really annoying when I kept receiving calls from some of my less thoughtful clients, who refused to take no for an answer and insisted I check my email right there and then, which was impossible since we were already on our way out. My cell phone kept ringing off the hook and I even got one of those much-hated telemarketing calls, asking me if I'm keen to purchase a new timeshare program! Seriously, today was not a good time to be soliciting anything
from me as my top priority was making sure B gets settled into his hospital room with as little fuss and as much comfort as possible. It was then that I wished I had access to one of those services where you can Report Annoying Callers so they will never bother me again! ;)

Anyway, we got to the hospital on time and after his check-up, he was ready to be warded. I did my best to console him, assuring him that a couple of days won't be that bad. He was not easy to convince however and even when we entered the admission area to his ward floor, he was still skeptical!

Upon stepping inside his room however, his mood did change for the better and we both exclaimed in delight at the spaciousness of his comfy "home" for the next couple of days! I gave myself a quick tour, camera in hand of course, crying out excitedly whenever I saw something cool in his room. ;)

I have to admit that this is definitely one of the best hospital rooms I've ever visited! Aside from the luxurious space for him to enjoy, it is also brand new and has not been occupied by any other patients before. Everything is so clean and fresh, which bodes well with me of course!

When we saw the flat screen TV on the wall, we looked at each other and smiled. B's smile got even wider when he discovered that his favorite sports channel was also available! At least he will not miss out on his important football updates. The room also comes with a DVD player and Wi-Fi access, which is awesome since we packed some DVDs and his laptop in his suitcase as well. Otherwise, he'd definitely be bored, completely cut off from the outside world!

My bed and resting area

I quickly inspected the bathroom, which was spotless and everything from toiletries to fresh towels were provided for. It almost felt like being in a fancy hotel room! After seeing all the wonderful facilities surrounding him, and finally convinced that his hospital stay might be okay after all, B was smiley once again, which made Mariuca smile too of course! :)

As you know, I'm a stickler for excellent service so I was quite impressed at the efficiency and politeness of the nurses in the hospital. They were all very friendly and helpful and any questions we had were immediately answered.

After getting his second shot for the day, dinner was served. I know it's only hospital food, which is supposed to be bland and yucky, but this one sure looks yummy! Perhaps it's the fact that I've been on my feet the whole day. Or maybe it's because I hardly touched my lunch today or I'm simply worried about the many emails from my clients waiting for me at home. Whatever the reason, I am simply ravenous looking at his dinner and will have to end this post here to start thinking of dinner for me too!

With B being in the hospital, it looks like another busy week for Mariuca. I do hope B will feel much better after his hospital stay and will get a clean bill of health from the Doctor. But until then, I know he'd LOVE to hear from you, so send him some love will ya cause I do so wanna see that smile on him a little bit longer! :)

Wow Marzie, that is by far the fanciest hospital room I have ever seen! our hospital rooms aren't that gorgeous here, even if you stay in a suite!

Ane,  January 03, 2010 10:50 AM

I am glad that everything is fine with you and B Marzie... :)

Ane,  January 03, 2010 10:51 AM

Wifi and a flat screen tv sure helps make the stay at a hospital bearable, we don't have that here and our hospital food sucks big time! :-P am glad everything is better for you guys... :)

Mariuca,  January 18, 2010 7:25 AM
