Day 2467 - The Lovin' Life Linky - The Hospital Edition

What's there to love about hospital?

Hospital food has definitely improved!
Yeah, it's hard to be lovin' life from a hospital ward. But it's all good.  Our girl has had the bar removed from her chest and she's now metal free.

It wasn't smooth sailing of course. Life never is. A two night stay ended up being a four night stay due to a reaction to pain medication which ended in a hell of a lot of vomiting, headaches and dehydration.

But it's totally fine now and we're back home and she's well into recovery mode.

So here is the post where I focus on the positives:
  • Great nursing staff and doctors
  • A pull-out single couch in the room for me to sleep beside my girl
  • A successful surgery
  • Decent food that extended to the parental carer
  • Silver service morning tea
  • Take away chai
  • The ability to work while sitting by my girl's side
  • A big window to look out at green trees and a blue sky
  • Face-time to stay in touch with Dad, brother, grandparents and the bestie overseas
  • Hospital gowns that now have press studs and don't leave gaping holes at the back
  • Plastic chairs for a sit down shower
  • Fancy buttons that not only call the nurse but also act as a TV remote
  • Getting to go home

What's making you smile this week?

If you're a blogger then feel free to link up a post that reflects what you're lovin' about life.  It could be a moment, a picture, a conversation, some food, a product, a dress, a hobby, an event, a place, a memory or a person - it's all about reminding ourselves what's good in our world.

So much to love ...


  1. Silver service morning tea? An upside to everything! Glad she is recovering - what a worry!

    1. Well, not sure it was actually silver ... but it was silver in colour! Does that count?

  2. I'm so glad she's on the road to recovery! Now you can relax a bit :)

  3. Oh my, you did well...and so did she once she got better. I am glad you found positives and the hospital looked out for you too.

  4. I'm glad your daughter is now home and metal free!

  5. So pleased that it is all over. Sounds like an ordeal. I'm linking up an old post. Also linking and running but will return to night to catch up with everyone's posts.

    1. A bit of an ordeal, yeah. All done now though. Thanks for linking!

  6. Glad T's recovering well. You're all in my thoughts and prayers.

  7. Oh my, what a worrying time. So pleased that you are both home. There is no smell like home I say. So many positives you have focused on there. Decent food? In a hospital? That's a first! Best wishes. Xx

    1. LOL. No smell like home. Yep, I guess you're right ...

  8. The nurses are amazing in hospitals such caring and lovely people :)

  9. Decent hospital care makes a stay so much better. The hospital where I had my daughter was excellent and the food was delicious! I didn't want to leave!

  10. Well that morning tea looks a little bit fancy! I am glad that the stay was as comfortable as possible. It always makes it just that little bit easier when you don't feel like and intrusion. We are currently in the process of looking at a possible hospital stay for me, in a "private" hospital (that is code for a hospital that specifically treats mental illness), I am just hoping that our phi covers the stay or that they will accept the cover that I have for the stay. It used to be hotel so the rooms still have queen size beds and an onsite commercial kitchen and gym. We will see what happens there.
    I hope that your daughter continues to improve and is back to herself soon. xoxo


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
