I remember getting out of the hospital after gut surgery. The hospital yanked my morphine drip real early in the morning, then fucked around to the middle of the afternoon to cut me loose.My wife has had some illness and several surgeries. I have spent a lot of time taking care of her and helping her out. I never minded a minute of it because she wasn't demanding and she would have preferred taking care of herself.
I hope it never happens but, she would do the same for me. Only if I was the patient, I would be so damn grumpy she would want to smother me with a pillow.
