So what is it like in here day to day?
7am – breakfast arrives. A couple of wheatbix. A pile of pills. I usually sleep in due to lack of sleep and eat at 9am.
9am – special snack trolley for ward c6. I get a sustagen 250ml for extra nutrition as the food is shite. I need the extra nutrition to keep my calories and protein intake up.
10am – snooze after a bad night sleep. Shower when I wake up.
Doctors come around sometime in the morning for a chat.
12 – lunch. Usual slop. I have an up&go instead as the hospital food is inedible. Maybe two up&go. Some more meds.
Afternoon- maybe get up or snooze again. Bored by now. Started doing a programming course on iPhone programming now though.
2pm – trolley again. Another sustagen.
5pm – dinner. More hospital slop. More up&go drinks to replace the slop. More meds.
7pm – trolley again. Another sustagen.
Evening – watch a movie or old tv show on my MacBook. Or do nothing if I am in pain.
10pm – bed.
After midnight is the worst as my stomach really acts up at night making sleep really hard. I usually have some pain relief a couple times at least each night during the last week.
Observations are taken every 4 hours over 24 hours. So at 8am, 12, 4pm, etc. Bloods are taken at 4am in the morning so that means I am woken at 4am if I like it or not.
Sleep deprivation is the worst in this place. Followed by boredom.
