Laura Update 12 - Waiting for the Doctor Sucks [Apr. 4th, 2009|04:53 pm]

Blood test finally done, now we've been cooling our heels waiting for a doc to look at them.

Will we get home before the UNC game starts? You're guess is probably better than mine. :-(

When I was in the hospital, I was extremely grateful that Kathryn was there to help me out with changing linens, giving me sponge baths, etc. Typically the wait time for when you would call for a nurse and when she would actually show up was about 40 minutes. Not good when you need help getting to the bathroom.

Similar to your situation, one night I was in agonizing, crippling pain and it was quickly evident that I needed to be put back on dilauden. It took the better part of an hour before a doctor approved this. An hour is a long, long time when you're lying in bed, sweating, and bending pipes due to the incredible amounts of pain you're feeling.

So, yes, waiting has become a big part of any hospital.
