Shrimp with Capers, Lemon, and Feta on Orzo, not my day — 7 Comments

  1. I hope you drank that wine sitting on the floor!

    It’s so true about medicine as opposed to the States. Ma femme had a 45-minute (but suitably serious) procedure in Belgium that required her to be imprison— err, “placed in a controlled environment” (as they told us) in a hospital in another city (apparently big-time Brussels wasn’t suitable) for four days prior.

  2. Here it seems to be different – they want you out ASAP and someone else into that bed, whether you are ready or not for discharge.

  3. A day late yet again but in my defense, your blog sends out the emails a day late…

    I’m sorry for everything you went through but really, you made me laugh and I needed that this morning. I’m guessing mon mari is home now and all is well. But I do have to tell you, after working in hospital here for 12 years, we took diabetic toes very seriously. So I wouldn’t be too angry at the hospital.

    I’d have had a second BIG glass of wine though 😉

  4. I love the way you can face this situation…. or recount this situation with humor. We would not have, I think. I hope everyone heals quickly and gets to put their feet up and eat this marvelous shrimp dish.

  5. Phoenicia, all good and back to normal… Should have known better than to go near a hospital on a Friday.

    Dan, once they get you in their control it’s hard to get out. And each doc is always right about everything. It takes a bit of getting used to.

    Kate, they like to have you where they can find you at their convenience…. Nothing happens over the weekend LOL

    nightsmusic, I wonder why it goes out late? I’ll ave to look into it. Yes, we take it seriously, but sometimes it seems everyone gets a bit carried away LOL

    Zoomie, I think my heels will take longer than his toe LOL

    Jamie, once one gets into the medical system one can only approach it with humor. All is well once again…
