Hospitals. You love 'em or hate 'em, depending on if you are sick or not. As a general rule, I avoid going to hospitals. If a friend is sick, I'll call or send a card, saving the visit until they go home.
Even with my avoidance issues, I've had the misfortune to spend a good bit of time in hospitals. The thing that gets me riled up is how often they check you. Seems like they are always coming in to check your blood pressure or temperature. I find it hard to get much rest in a hospital. Just when I get almost dozed off, the staff comes in and wants to check this that or the other.
I realize that's their job, and I'm glad we have such dedicated caretakers, but sometimes it just seems over the top. How the heck are folks supposed to get well if they can't get any rest?
