Do I have to leave? Really?

Okay, I was kidding about the title, sorta :) This pic is the view I had from my hospital bed. That is the bay here in Port Angeles. You can see the Coast Guard station out on the end of the "spit" to the right. It was pretty cool watching the CG choppers fly in and out for drills. 

I am glad to be out of there and feeling tons better! Thank You to everyone for all the sweet comments! I didn't bring my computer in the room with me, but Heidi had hers and let me know about them as they came in. Having that kind of support is really encouraging! 

The Olympic Medical Center here in PA is really a nice hospital. Very kind and thorough staff as well. My first room in the place last Tuesday didn't have the same spectacular view but was still very comfortable. The doctor, who was incredibly nice, said "Hey, I think we can do better than this" and had the staff move me! Don't find that kind of treatment very often! Easily the best hospital experience I have had ever! The food was even pretty decent, ordered from a menu, room service style. 

As nice as it was, I am extremely happy to be out and back to having fun! Stay well friends, I will try to do the same!

  2. WOW! A Five Star hospital critique! I guess if you have to be in a hospital this would be the place to be. I'm glad you're out and on the mend!

  4. Hi there. I came over here from Glenn's blog (which I have been reading for 4 days now and am only 1 month behind, closing in on that gold star) and just wanted to tell you that your post brought back memories... A year after I moved to Sequim, I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease and needed abdominal surgery for a biopsy. On checking into Olympic Medical Center I was asked: Would you prefer a mountain or an ocean view? I enjoyed watching the ships come in once I was conscious again and the care I received was outstanding! Now back to Glenn's place to continue working towards that gold star.
    Cheers,
    Ilse

  5. So glad to hear that you are out of the hospital and feeling better! What a beautiful view... wonder what that property is worth??!... Praying that you continue to improve - Heidi's cooking sounds too good to waste time with hospital food! :-)

  9. So glad to hear you've escaped the hospital (food). I guess if you're going to have to be in the hospital, though, you might as well have a room with a view! Keep healing.
