A. A decent mattress
B. uninterrupted sleep
C. Healthy food
I understandably didn't have an appetite for a few days after the surgery. I knew I needed to start eating if I was ever going to be sprung. The menu for room service in the hospital was straight out of your local pub. Soups, salad bar. Make your own pizza, pasta bar and create your own sandwiches. I couldn't digest lots of salad so I literally felt like there was nothing there for me to eat!
Thankfully my mom was able to bring in some juices I had pre made and froze.
And she also made me some smoothies which they let me keep in the refrigerator.
I am really dismayed at the lack of healthy healing food available to patients. And the room service woman, bless her heart , was pretty much a drug dealer! Calling me 3x a day for my order.
"Are you sure you don't want some bread? Extra butter? Come on, pick a dessert!"
I even tried to get them to make me a smoothie. They have a blender and all the ingredients..... But they wouldn't do it. It was preferable to push lemon meringue pie and processed food.
My tolerance was pretty thin.
Someone needs to start a grass roots champagne for reform for hospital food
