The Bad Patient - Flash 55 Friday, June 18, 2010

The Bad Patient - Flash 55 Friday, June 18, 2010

My 55 is late,
I’m very sad to say,
But I got myself admitted,
To a hospital yesterday!

I fell the 8th of June,
Graceful I am not,
And developed cellulitis,
I think my foot’s about to rot!

I am here for several days,

Little could be worse –

A patient who’s a nurse!

  1. Great 55, hope your foot and leg are healing now that they are giving you IV antibiotics.
    It is hard to be confined I know but just for a few days follow doctor's orders so that you will be home soon and feeling well. Keeping you in my prayers......:-) Hugs

  2. Oh dear, I hope your better soon.

  3. oh my...sorry to hear you hurt yourself...hope you heal up quick...

  4. So what if Nursie is not that graceful.
    She's cute, she's clever, and 55 Faithful!
    You'll soon be healed and feeling dandy.
    In no time at all, you'll be sippin that Brandy.
    Take care Carmen, and get on the mend..
    And as always, have a Kick Ass Week-End.

  5. OH, Carmen, I feel for you. Nurses do make lousy patients, I hope yours give you the very best of care, if not, at least you know who to go to about it. Don't put up with anything other than the best you deserve it. Mend quickly,
    Kat RN

  6. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that!

    (I bet doctors are even worse patients.)

  7. Carmen, despite being in pain you still manage to compose a beautiful poem, hope you feel better soon.

  8. wowo I just got released from the hospital last week from having cellulitis myself it's been a week and my leg still looks bad. I read on the internet at Web Md.... That cellulitis, can be deadly it really scared me when I read that yea it scared the hell out of me. I hope you get better soon and wish you well with that. Thanks larry

  9. What FUN to read this...but not "fun" for where you ARE.

    Hopefully you will not be a nurse-patient (or a PATIENT NURSE?--grin!) for long.

    Very cute, glad I dropped by.

    Here is MINE

  10. hope you are feeling better now and recovering...

  11. Oh, I hope all goes well Carmen. Now behave for the nurses ;0
