I had to wear some stupid bracelet, but it seemed pretty pointless. I have to say though, at this hospital the staff treated me rather well.

you should have texted me, i would have visited and brought you a cigar!
yeah, I figured it out, was still awful. then they have those beds that adjust every 2 minutes so it's like sleeping next to a broken refrigerator. then the staff is in and out of the room all night (even though everything is fine). i unplugged the staff computer in the room because the damn lcd wouldn't turn off, illuminating the room. i tried to think of it as a terrible, but expensive, hotel stay - without the do not disturb sign.
the last night they wanted my wife to bring the baby to the nursery for something. i was like, that's ridic - she needs to rest. all of a sudden they could do it in the room in 15 minutes.
on another note - how 'bout them ravens?
