HOW TO DO THIS? Hospital

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I have scheduled some IV therapy which requires a two day hospitalization, on the 11th of this month. Immunoglobulins for my Myastenia Gravis. I do this routinely about every 3-4 months and this is the first round since I started my 17 Day Diet. I have decided to pack an ice chest, pack all my food for the last two days of my C3. Hospital food is the worse anyway and I usually don't hardly eat when I go but I want to end my cycle right.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Will your IV be portable? I don't know about your hospital but where my sister was the cafeteria was great, food sent to room? not so much. They had a terrific salad bar that I took advantage of often.

    They have refrigerators on each floor. This hospital is where I have worked the last 24 years and they are always accommodating. Depending on how big my package is whether or not I use their fridge. I'm sure it will work out fine. My sister helps me out a lot too.

    I know what you mean about hospital food. Looks good in the menu, but when you get it, oh my! Do you know if they have a frig you can use. You could call and find out if you know what ward you'll be on. The hospital I go to has one on some wards but not on others. They all have ice machines. If there's not frig then it would be good if you could have someone drop the second day's food off that morning, then you'd have less worry about spoilage over night.
