So Much For Grey's Anatomy

As some of you (those who follow on Twitter or FB) may already know, hubby had a kidney biopsy and overnight hospital stay on Tuesday. No need to be alarmed, just running some tests to try and determine why his kidneys are currently underperforming. Doctors have told us not to be alarmed so far – and I’m trying very hard to follow that advice!

Unfortunately, with me just starting this new job I’m a little overwhelmed (noticed how I haven’t been blogging lately??) Thankfully, my wonderful MIL volunteered to take Steven to the hospital Tuesday morning and stay with him for the procedure. I went straight to the hospital after work and stayed with him for the night.

I must admit, hospitals aren’t exactly what they seem to be on Grey’s Anatomy. I was so excited as I entered the empty elevator on my way to the 6th floor. My heart skipped a beat every time the elevator cart stopped at a new floor. I was secretly hoping that Presbyterian’s own McDreamy or McSteamy would step into the elevator – sadly no such thing happened. As a matter of fact, I didn’t see a single hot doctor (male or female) the entire time we were there.

I felt a little jilted as I walked down the hallways of the hospital and didn’t see a single nurse or doctor sneaking into an on-call room for a little rendezvous.

I was also incredibly bummed when the nurses didn’t burst into song every time they came to check Steven’s vitals. (Still not so sure how I feel about the recent musical…..)

I didn’t even hear any juicy gossip as I purposefully strolled by the nurse’s station multiple times.

I figured if I was going to pay some huge hospital bill for Steven's procedure, the least the doctors and nurses could do was entertain me.  Apparently the doctors and nurses at Presbyterian Hospital actually do work. Imagine that…. 

And here I’ve been feeling like I missed my calling as a doctor….come to find out they are just as boring as accountants.

Thanks to all those who have offered well wishes & prayers for Steven. He’s doing just fine and we are praying that the results will come back positive early next week. Stay tuned!

Haha, I think they ARE as scandalous as Grey's, it's just hidden a little better. That's what I hear from my ER doc friend, anyway ...

Thinking about you guys!

Christina said...

Haha, this made me chuckle :) I too am not sure about the musical number. I hope Steven recovers quickly and everything comes back good!!!

Let us know how your job's going when you get a chance!!

Syndal said...

oh believe me--there is gossip and drama..we just know to hide it from the patients and their families!
there is no singing, however. :)

Allison said...

I missed too many days on twitter and didn't see that your hubby was in.

However, that must have been a HUGE disappointment :( For a side note--I HATED the musical.

Hope you hear some good results soon!

Tiffany said...

Hope your hubby is doing ok! Prayers for him! Hate the hospital visit was anything less than Grey's!

Kelly said...

Wait until you meet your neurologist and he has helmet hair...because he wears one while driving his car....yep...my neurologist wears a helment in his car...I'm sure McDreamy doesn't.....

Cait said...

Rebekah said...

I'm glad Steven is doing better and hopefully the results will be good! I'm praying for him! Haha, when my sister was in the hospital for her heart issues, it was TOTALLY like a Grey's episode. Beyond weird, but really fun to listen to!

Katie said...

You are too funny. I will be thinking of your hubby! hope everything turns out OK. We've missed you in blogland!

Megan said...

I am hoping everything goes well!

I used to work in a hospital, so I knew what it was like...and you're right, it's not like Greys!! LOL...even though I've only seen seasons 1&2.

I have been so anti-blogging lately, so I feel ya ;-) Hope you have a great day!

Mateya said...

Bummer! Maybe all the hot Dr.'s live in Seattle :)

Amanda Leigh said...

HAHAHA this post is HILARIOUS!! I thought that too the last time I was in a hospital... but I didnt actually go looking for it, I just assumed it was going on!

Neely said...

Hope your hubs is doing well but this post was hystiercal!

Erica said...

The ones here they work as well as the doctors, but you can see them if you leave the room you pretty much can always can see a few of each walking from person to person checking on them. I see a few single doctors where i go, but all of them are pretty good looking. All this is the Er was well, they aren't McDeamy but most are pretty good looking.

Haha! Yeah, Grey's is probably a little far-fetched at times. Especially with the musical thing... I felt SO AWKWARD just watching it!! However, I have a feeling that hospitals can be just as scandalous...but I don't think everyone is so open about everything.

I'm glad that your hubby is okay. Hope they figure out what the problem is soon!

Jessica said...

Dang, I was hoping you'd say you caught some nurses in the coat closet or something.

Glad to hear the hubs is doing ok. Keep us posted.

Kelly Marie said...

awwww booo to that! Hope the results come back with good news!! I wanted to say positive and couldn't remember if positive was a good thing in medical terms...so comes back good works, I guess!

d.a.r. said...

Ahh scary!! I hope he is doing okay.

How is work?!?

Jessica @ Acting Adult said...

Oh TV always makes things seem more glamorous than they are in real life.

Nicole said...

I know I'm a little late in reading this, but hope all went well!

I actually spent a day in the ER with my aunt about a month ago (she's an ER doctor) and I was completely shocked. So far most of my dealings were with GA and truthfully, the doctors don't do much but analyze and figure out solutions. Nurses do all the work! Of course there are things nurses can't do but surgeon's don't work the pit... the ER doctor works the pit. It's their job to tell the surgeon if needed what they can tell about the patient. It was completely opposite!
