Lemme Outta Da Hospital!
I had to sign my own hospital discharge form today, "against medical advice" - they wanted to keep me there longer but honestly, it was pointless idling in the ward when my tests seem OK. The doctors were a bit overly cautious, especially new ones that had never seen my file before (documenting all my high-risk factors). But really, all I needed was some medication to help control my pregnancy induced hypertension.
Anyway, glad to be home! I am not doing a feature on hospital food - most of us would rather not be reminded of cardboard cuisine, I think. Most of it I could only eat when imagining myself as an ascetic monk or nun, for whom this would be a veritable feast! But one plus point is - I have a renewed sense of appreciation for all foods previously thought mundane. Flavours previously taken for granted now come flooding back!
