    She likes the novelty and the attention.

    When I was about 6, I spent 3 days in the hospital. I was in a ward with 7 other kids. The high point was reading the Marvel Comics the hospital had (Strange Tales, featuring the Human Torch and the Thing).

    That’s how I felt after giving birth to my daughter after 24 hours of labor! They asked me if I’d “like” to leave that morning! I said, “No thanks!”

    This is Canada, Honey — we won’t go bankrupt by keeping you here one more night.

    oh the days when they still cared about why someone was sick.. Now it is sit for three hours get a quick look at, get a perscription for some thing that may perhaps not be deadly and get out, Oh and here is the bill…

    Back then there were a lot more nurses to a floor and a child could get a lot of attention while in the hospital. That has changed a lot and now nurses rely on the parent to stay and attend to the non-medical needs of the child. My daughter was in for a pacemaker implantation when she was small and the nurse told me they were grateful we were there all the time so they had more time to take care of the kids who’s parents could not be there much.

    When my daughter was in the hospital another child was there and never had a visitor except on Sundays. Her mom was a single mom and the hospital was 3 hours away from where she worked (it was a University hospital that specialized in Cystic Fibrosis which the child had). If she gave up the job to be there with her she would have no insurance and lose their home. She had no choice and no support system. Thank God for good nurses who care.

    Free Canadian healthcare. Stay a day or a week.

    Canadian healthcare is not free, it is part of their citizenship, and paid by taxes.
    Sense of security, priceless.

    Looks like she has a nice comfy bed. Last time I was in the hospital the pillow was only about an inch thick and the blanket was paper thin.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    I have to say that I have always been happy with the medical care my children received. For every complaint there are thousands of stories like mine — where a child is given the best of treatment and has developed a lifelong trust and confidence in doctors and nurses because of it.

    Conservatives in Canada and the UK have tried to mangle their universal health care. (That is all they seem to be good at.)
