I've grown accustomed to (the good, the bad and the ugly of life here at USC)...
-The sound of helicopters landing on the roof in the middle of the night, and praying for the patients who are receiving organ donations!
-Distinguishing my doctor's voice and laugh through a closed door while he puts on an isolation gown
-Sleeping through beeping, the testing of fire alarms and people taking the trash out at 3am
-Eating my food on a tray
-Directing the blood 'vampires' as I call them as to which vein they should poke next :)
-The blessings of friends and family taking time out of their day to email, text, or stop by to visit.
-Wearing sweat pants and a sports bra...holler!
-Incredible nurses coming in with a smile to cheer me up
-Answering the question "did you go to the bathroom" and giving details each day, haha
-Playing the 'order my food' game which consists of: giving my order for breakfast, lunch and dinner by choosing whatever sounds good AND whatever looks good here...tricky!
-Peeing many times in the middle of the night because I've got bags of IV meds dripping in me!
-The days going SO fast and then wondering what the heck I did (thanks, God for giving me patience)
-The lovely view of the park and homes up on the hills of LA
-The purring sound of my IV pump as I sleep which thankfully drones out the busy-ness in the hallway outside
Just a few little observations I've made during my stay here to let you guys into my 'world'...!
