THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA

I am to old for slumber parties.

My mom and I stayed here at the hospital tonight while my daddy is in medical ICU.

How in the world do people go to the bar and party until all hours of the night???

I have tried to sleep on some chairs pushed together. A button has popped off my sweater.

I would like to say I am much like Sleeping Beauty but I snore. I do not think I will meet Prince Charming here.

It is 2:00am and I just tiptoed to the nurses station to see how he is doing. They let me peep in on him and he is sleeping peacefully. They told me he is doing great.

That means I am perfectly alright here in the lobby in my make shift bed.
.........its all okay

    Working the make-shift beats working other shifts.

  5. Sometimes they can get you a recliner to sleep in, or a rollaway bed - they often have bathrooms/showers for patient families too. Hoping for great outcomes!

  12. I'm glad he's doing well considering.....I'm praying for you.

    I hope that you didn't take anyone's eye out with a flying button - especially the nurse, because she was kind enough to let you peek in on her.
