Thank you for your prayers while I was in the hospital. I am now feeling better to be back home and I am back to writing my poems.

The Hospital Wait

It’s a long wait for pain medicine.

The relief that you hope will come soon.

It’s a long wait for help to get out of the bed.

You call around ten and they finally come at noon.

It takes patience; you just have to wait for so long.

The longer you wait the more you appreciate home.

For when it comes to love and care,

In a good home it’s always there.



Ecclesiastes 7:8
The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.

Your words are so true about a lot of hospitals and Nursing Homes. So glad that you are back home and on the road to recovery. I recently spent 3 days in the hospital (July 19-22). I was so lucky and blessed, the service was fast and very good. Earlier this month, one of my relatives was in a Nursing Home, had a stroke, the service was slow, she once waited approximately an hour to get help to go to the bath room. Their response to me was, they had a lot of patients. Sad thing was, the relatives and friends were not allowed to help her, because of hospital safety policies. She's at home now.

TONY NERONE, so sorry you are home alone in time of need. Is there a neighbor that you can call?

Happy that you are back home, John.

Oh you are so right about that, John Michael. In my case I have run out of pain meds and there is no one here to care for me except the most important of all JESUS. I pray you stay on the road to recovery.

I'm so glad you are through the worst and home ~ home to recover in peace and comfort!

I am sorry to hear about your hospital visit John
and also the wait!! This is unacceptable & the
hospital human resources or accountability staffing department
need to be notified & the name of your room supervisor to them.
They are there to give 100% or more to patients.

I am glad your home!!

You've got that right, John. Glad you're home and God bless.
