Hospital Admissions and “Lie-Down” Comics
I’ve recently returned home from my second emergency admission to the hospital.
My first stay was for 8 days, my second was for 6 days (my insurance ran out!)
During my second stay, near the end of the 4th day, I was feeling much better. I began to tease the staff and they were kind enough to dub me the “Lie-Down” Comic, as it was evident I wasn’t able (by virtue of IV’s in both arms) to be a “Stand-Up” Comic.
One sign that created a lot of mirth was the following:

One night in my drug induced haze, and in a very dimly lit room, I awoke frightened to discover a mouse in my room. I was assured by the nurse, however that it wasn’t a mouse, nor was I the first to think it was!
