The horse pistol

So, like many of you, I was born in a hospital. I've visited sick friends and family in the hospital. I've taken people to the ER. I've even spent the night at the hospital (not as a patient, as a family member of a patient).

And as awesome as my health has been for the past 35 years, I wonder if maybe I shouldn't have tried harder to get hospitalized earlier in life. You know, just for the experience.

Because I'm looking upon my upcoming hospitalization with more than a little trepidation.

Yeah, I'm freakin'.

Yeah, it's funny. So many people tried to prepare me for my hospitalization and I was like, "Dude, I've got hospital visits down pat, thanks though." It's really a different situation for everyone, depending on what hospital you're at. Some people have great experiences (like me) other people hate every minute of their stay.

I was in the ER as a patient once and hated it and when they told me I might need surgery I flipped out on them a bit because I have a fear of being put completely (in the end I didn't need surgery). Of course this is doing nothing to reassure you...but I will tell you that when my sister in law was in the hospital to have my nephew her experience was extremely positive through out.
