I wound up yesterday morning (11/15) back in our Renown Campus, as its called. Most people would use the term "hospital", though politically correct terminology has reached the medical world now. I'm here to be put on a "leading edge" heart med, whose "quirk" is that you must be in-hospital for three days when starting it. Expect to be home again Friday afternoon.

The point of this is that even my rushed cooking at home, or a breakfast burrito at Jack-In-The-Box, or soup-and-salad at Olive Garden, is far tastier and satisfying than hospital food. My stay is very boring as I simply take one pill in the morning, one in the evening, and be "monitored". After five doses, if all is well, I simply go home and keep taking it.

But the hospital meals - so bland, so tasteless, no sauces, no gravies, no mustard, no ketchup, no vinegar, no hot sauce, no spices, no herbs. All I think about, while doing crossword puzzles and surfing the web, is... "where can I go for dinner Friday night, after my release". :lol:

Sharkey, good luck to you on that new treatment. I'll pray for a big success!

I didn't know hospital food was THAT bad. I would probably feel the same way as you, missing good food and planning my next few meals when I get out. I guess we are all about spoiled. LOL!

Hope that new med works out for you, Awt. You shouuld of snuck in a small bottle of Tabasco sauce :o . But they might of put you on a bland diet to see how the new med works. Have a good meal when you get out.

Hope your new pill is as good as they say. Turning my prayer antenna toward Nero, I mean Reno.

Your subject launched a rewind:

Oh yeah, ain't that the truth.

Thanks, everyone, for all your good wishes. It's now 7:00 am, Friday, and I'm now waiting for my cardiologist to make his rounds, and give me "the word".

Just to sum up the happenings this morning, it's now almost 9:00 am. Shortly after 7 (see above), I was told that the new drug was only working partially. And because of this, I would be taken down to a mini-OR for a cardio-version procedure, which would "kick" the drug into full operation.

I made the trip down to the surgery floor, just before 8 am, and was prepped for the cardio-version procedure. A final ECG was taken. The "team" present put their heads together, looking at the ECG chart, and exclaimed that the med was working, my heart was back in rhythm, and the procedure would not be necessary.

I ducked that bullet. So now I'm back in my room, missing my breakfast which came in my absence and was taken away, ready to go home this afternoon. :o :lol: :D

The marvels of modern medicine...
has definitely surpassed the hash house of the Hospital kitchen!


That said...
Thank God you are back "ticking" correctly.

As for tonight...
I would say Eat Healthy...
Gradually and Moderately return to "SOME" of the good stuff.

Advice from a "hard headed" food fancier,
