It's not everyday you get to stay in the hospital, and most hospitals are far from luxurious. However everyone at some point in their lifetime spends at least one visit in the hospital, whether it be surgery, illness, or cancer treatment. Let's face it-hospital time is boring. Time seems to move very slowly. What are some tips to help the time pass?
I have done my share of time in the hospital after being diagnosed with placental cancer, choriocarcinoma,
from a complete molar pregnancy. Every other week was inpatient chemotherapy and I got to know those hospital walls very well. Watching television eventually got boring. I found myself beginning to ponder over things I could actually accomplish in this down-time. What were some things that needed to get done or things wanted to do?
1. Pack a chemo bag, with:
2. Pick up a new hobby.
3. Get Moving.
4. Decorate your room.
5. Set up a netflix account.
6. Talk to others.
