It’s Not A Good Thing

AJ, AZ

I was so out of it yesterday when I made my post that I completely forgot about one of the funniest incidents yesterday at the hospital.

The young woman who escorts the patients to the pre-op prep area came down to get Jim. Really a pretty blonde. She looked at Jim and said “I remember you. You were here a couple of months ago.” She must see 30 to 50 people a day and she remembered Jim. Sure made him feel good.

Then when we were in the prep area and the anesthesiologist came in to get Jim’s info. He says – I remember you. Sure enough. Same doctor as we had last July.

But you must admit it’s really not a good thing to have these folks remember you that well. I told the anesthesiologist that as good looking as he was – I hoped I didn’t see him again for many years.

But the really great news is – Jim is home and asleep in his own bed.

  1. It is nice to be recognized. But, if it was nicer to have Jim home and in his own bed.

  2. Having your primary care physician remember you is good. Having hospital personnel remember you is less good. At least Jim is a good patient so having them remember him is not a bad thing. Being home now means he has the best caretaker of all--the one who loves him. Please, take care of yourself too as you help Jim recover.

  3. When a person is as nice as Jim, how can he not be remembered! Glad all went well. Now on to mending.

  4. Glad Jim is back home and healing. Personally, I have no ambition to be remembered by a doctor, however our local doctor back in Saskatchewan is a small town fellow, and I'm sure he'll remember me when (if?) I visit him again next year.

  5. That is good that he is home.
    Must have made a good impression on that nurse and doctor I think.

  6. Yup....that kind of "remembering a person" sure isn't a good thing.
    All the best to you and Jim.

  8. It's good that Jim is home. It was nice visiting with you and Jim. Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye when we left, but I'm sure we'll get together an other time.

  9. Not the kind of people you want remembering you. Like you, I hope you don't see them again.

  15. I think both of us should get past putting photos of our hospitalized loved ones on our blogs just as soon as possible! Not saying I don't like showing our spouses in photos...the location needs changed just as soon as possible however. It's good to see that Jim is on the mend and I imagine he will be up and around soon. As always, you have our good thoughts and prayers for Jim's rapid recovery and in support of the loyal caregiver. Yes, that's you Sandie!!!
