I guess they thought you needed to carb up. Hospital food is the worst. I remember the night before my husband had brain surgery and they brought him a turkey sandwich, chips and some orange drink. He was a vegetarian. I felt so bad thinking that might be his last meal.... so went out to find him something better..... lol and the best I could find was cold pizza.pancakes

After my hysterectomy they let me choose what I wanted. Two orders of bacon and 3 eggs. I had to tell them multiple times that I DID NOT WANT TOAST.
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
When I had my first kid, I lost a lot of blood. Instead of just automatically giving me a transfusion, my old school doc ordered a big hunk of beef for my dinner.
Sadly, he retired before I got pregnant the 2nd time.

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
You may remember the coworker who advised me that potato chips and popcorn would make great "vegetables" for my toddler. I saw her again recently and she actually remembered that conversation. Round 2 went something like this:
Her: Oh hey so how did it go with vegetables for your kid? Popcorn's always a big hit right?
Me: Um, I don't consider chips and popcorn to really be _vegetables_. So I got her going with broccoli and carrots and stuff instead.
Her: So how do you cook them to hide them? Or do you use dip?
Me: I just cut 'em up and hand them over. Raw. No dip.
Her: What, even broccoli?!
Me: Yeah, we told her it's like eating little trees.
Her: Oh well she'll see through THAT soon enough.
Me: Uh, well, so anyway, see you around! *run away*

My buddy's girlfriend has been constantly griping about putting on 20 lbs or so recently. Since I'm the healthy one (read "have abs") of our group of friends, the other day she asked me if I could put together a nutrition plan for her to lose weight, and get back to her. I said "sure, write this down right now: Eat meat and veggies. Some fruit and nuts. Good fats. Don't eat grains or sugars. Done and done."
She stood there for a minute and looked confused, then said "...so...no pasta? Or sugar in my Starbucks?"
Then she got a look on her face like I had just murdered her yappy little Maltese.
Hey, don't ask for help if you don't want it.
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
