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!
