hanging out in the hospital

So I am going to be in the hospital for the next 2-5 days being monitored for seizures
and they have me tethered to the wall by a bunch of wires.
no showers, cant leave the room, constant video monitoring.
and the contacts itch like hell.

hopefully they will have good news for me.

I hope it's not like when you try to demo an appliance for a repairman...

Best of luck, c0urt!

We'll see what we can do to keep you entertained...

I better harass all those beautiful foo ladies to post some more pics although that in itself might be seizure inducing and at the very least, leave one a little short of breath.

Bike porn... we have it.

What else do ya need ?

Hey, I hope it is worth it & they can figure some stuff out for you.

In the mean time, start moving like a robot & talking in a robot voice. It will amuse you and others!!

Take names when the less-quality night nurses are difficult with you.

jeez, hooked up to an EEG or something?

I went through that as a kid, no fun... and I didn't even have to be there for more than a few hours!

I hope things work out well for you.

no kidding.
just found out they have a stationary bike somewhere on this floor. I am going to try to see if they will bring it to me.

i have had to sit in the room under the camera. so I am sure you all can imagine the cabin fever setting in.
the electrodes are still glued to my head, and they itch.
basically i have to wait to have a few seizures where they can see them

Any 'whys' for the surgery? What are they seeing in the MRI?
