Hi lottagelady "Clumpy shoes" ...oh gosh yes, isn't that the truth! lol Let's see, clumpy shoes, squeaky carts, loud mechanical humming noises from unknown places, moans from down the hall, waking you up every 15 minutes for blood pressure upon each visit the nurses ask you why you're not sleeping then show up 15 minutes later again to take bloodpressure again...and say "You're still awake?" ... just the sound of that door opening at night and the shaft of light hitting you in the face. Ahhh yeah. Sorry lottagelady, you stirred one memory after the next lol. Cheers girl!
I've stirred some more memories now! In England they wake you up at about 5.30am (just after you've managed to actually get some sleep as it is so noisy in the night!) so they can do your obs before the day shift comes on - then they leave you until about 8am before you get a cup of tea or coffee and some breakfast - how cruel is that! Supposed to be going for some more surgery, think I've decided not to bother, my body and mind cannot stand the torture.......
