It seems to me that the most relevant things for them to know about anyone in regards to their health are:
- How did you sleep?
- How much did you eat/drink?
- Did you take a shit?
They must know what they are doing though, because she is slowly getting better. Her dissatisfaction at the moment is being in a four-person room (and on the door side, not the window side) instead of the window-view, solo area she had in ICU - she could look at the deer grazing on the helipad* to pass the time, and she misses that. I've convinced her that being out of the Intensive Care Unit is a better thing, regardless of view.
She did state however, that she can't wait to get home - at least she won't have someone asking her about her colon every 10 minutes.
I'm going to try and find a way to work that into our daily talks from now on...
*not shitting you - actual deer munching away on the grass beside the helipad. It is a Canadian hospital, after all.
