My Dexter Room

After I got all admitted to the hospital, we walked over to my cell hospital room.  On the way there, the nuclear med tech says, "Have you seen Dexter?"

I've seen a couple of the episodes, but couldn't actually watch it.  The premise totally freaked me out.

I replied, "Just a couple of episodes."

Tech, "Ok... the room you will be staying in looks like the room Dexter prepares for his victims."

O-kay...  Not sure how I feel about that.

I kind of get it.

Phil also said to me, "Do you feel like a dog?  You have to stay on the paper."  Very true.

I also kind of felt like a kid.  Every uncovered surface was like lava and I couldn't touch it.

Across the hall from me was a patient who had some kind of airborne illness that required the nurses to wear respirators into their room.  Phil was kind of curious what other kind of secluded patients they had on the floor with me.

In the Leper wing.


  1. It doesn't sound like the tech has the world's best bedside manner. If someone said that to me, I don't think I would be able to sleep that night (not that anyone can sleep in hospitals anyway, but still)!

  2. NATALIE!!! Don't think of Dexter!! Hahahaha :)

    I liked Phil's comment though.

    Best of luck girl!

  3. LOL! I laughed at the tech's comment about Dexter, though that would have freaked me out a bit too!
    I am intrigued by the paper over everything - how was that supposed to protect you/the room from radiation? Interesting!

  4. OK I'm befuddled but why was the non-paper areas like Lava? (Yes I get the reference just curious why linoleum which can be cleaned with bleach was so damn dangerous?)


Let's be friends. I hope your e-mail is attached to your profile! Then I can e-mail you back.
