    Unwanted hair is a big one, and I do not want anyone to repeat anything I might say while talking in my sleep. And no wise cracks about snoring or farting either, or I will getcha.

    A list , very short one folks!, of the docs who are allowed on the floor while I am a patient. Then there is the even shorter list of the docs who are actually allowed in my room and to take care of me. I have one from each specialty picked out.
    Dog with me at all times.
    Big fat bag of MS04 and a gallon jug of Diprivan. Absolutley no paralytics!!!! I don't care how snowed I am.
    An alias on the chart and board and my door. Do not want sightsee'ers trapsing thru the room all day long.
    CD player and TV/VCR.
    An a line and a central line.
    No residents. Period, end of discussion!
    Those are the main ones. Not too picky, huh????

    I would want a whirlpool bath everyday with Bath and Body Works Bubble Bath!

    Unlimited Visiting hours for my family, especially my young nieces as they bring me the ultimate joy as I don't yet have children of my own.

    Allowing my beautician mother to fix my hair so I don't end up with bed head and allowing me to shampoo my hair at least qod.

    Full body massages at bedtime every night from a Swedish massuer named Sven with the body of a god!

    If I were terminal, I'd of course want the morphine drip with the ability to self titrate. And Frozen margarita's if I so desire.

    I also want an unlimited supply of Coca-Cola, Sprite and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups!

    This has really gotten me thinking. I guess if anything were to happen to me now, these are the things I would like.....in no particular order:
    1. a room w/ no hospital smells
    2. flannel sheets (I get cold easily)
    3. a double bed so my husband could come in and snuggle,
    spoon and whatever else
    4. mystery books on tape
    5. my cats and dog to visit me
    6. not to hospitalized in June or July (new residents)
    7. no nursing shortage


    And....if I live long enough to have nothing horrible happen to me and end up in a nursing home with no teeth, I want my chips and dip to be pureed!! And I want pepsi on my lunch and dinner trays. And don't even tell me about a NCS or low salt diet. No siree...don't even go there!!! :chuckle

    DEMEROL!! IV, ORAL, RECTAL- WHO CARES- JUST GET IT IN AND KEEP IT COMING.........plus, my boom box with every Janis Joplin CD that I own blasting away (and maybe a couple of ZZ Top and some Grateful Dead, and oh yeah, don't forget my Blues Brothers album). Oh, I could be a happy, happy girl.

    I'm serious about the chin hair

    OMG! My sister told me the same thing! :roll :roll :roll
    She had a friend in a coma and was mortified for her and had me swear I would bring tweezers to the hospital and pluck her chin should she be in the same predicament.:imbar
    She also promised to do it for me.

    PLEASE, shave my chin, chest, and abdomen hairs. :imbar

    ONLY cute doctors please...and cute male nurses too. :blushkiss

    And of course, no machines unless you know that my condition is reversable.

    How about those cute male nurses singing me a lullaby every night? :zzzzz

    That reminds me of the movie "Meet Joe Black" and the scene where Brad Pitt is talking with a Jamaican accent to the woman in the hospital bed. I was like, ME! OH ME! Let that be me!
    However, if it were truly Brad Pitt and me in the hospital bed I'd do something VERY inappropriate requiring soft hand restraints.
