Last night we ended up at the hospital at 3am for observation after a pregnancy related issue. This morning I had my very first hospital meal ever in my life. Scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes served on a disposable tray with ketchup packets.
You’d think a hospital menu would be more health conscious, but whatever. I was starving! The novelty of the experience was exciting enough that I was almost disappointed to be discharged just as lunch was being served (I spied lime jello and chocolate pudding on the carts!). OK, I said almost disappointed.
Anyway, all was OK but by the time we got home we were exhausted and the doctor ordered me to rest and take it easy for the next week at least. While I rested, my husband went grocery shopping and cooked up dinner: lemon basil pasta with chicken, garlic toast. He is my super hero!
