Staying in the Hospital – Day 1

Today I am staying in the hospital. I will be getting my surgery tomorrow. Being in a hospital is quite boring and annoying because I hear a lot of knocks, and different doctors and nurses always go in my room to ask the same questions over and over again. I’m quite scared for the needle they’ll put in me. I haven’t been confined in a long time. It is also a little fun because I get to watch movies and get to do some writing. You know what??!! They don’t allow many things you need in a hospital!! I was shocked when they didn’t allow any extra pillows!! About 3 minutes ago, 2 nurses came. 1 checked my BP and the other set up the nebulizer, and then I nebulized. Tonight (or morning) at 12 am they will insert the needle in me and that’s when I can’t eat anymore. My mom ordered Jollibee for both of us, so that I won’t wake up hungry. I have so many questions to ask!! Like how will I take a bath with the needle in me, what will I feel, or what can I do?? Now I am just missing my BFFFLs Ana, Andrea, Jordyn, Rae Rae, and my Grade 5 girls. I will always remember this verse when I’m scared: 

1 Corinthians 10:31

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all for the glory of God.

 

I just noticed Danae intermittently typing on my laptop. When I learned she was writing about her hospital stay, I encouraged her to finish so that I could post it here. She was asking me months back if she could blog, or be featured in my blog. When she finished, I asked her why she used this verse. She said that it’s because she knows it will hurt, but she’ll do it anyway for the glory of God. That was our memory verse for victory group a few weeks ago. 🙂

  1. Awww…Danae! I also don’t like that there’s a lot of knocking happening at the hospital. How can you rest, right? I don’t get that too. 😦 Sometimes I’m tempted to just lock the door haha. But they’re just doing their job because they want to make sure we’re okay. So proud of you! And I’m happy your surgery is finally done!!
