Vegan MoFo Day 2: hospital cafeteria.
Yesterday afternoon was totally dumb. I tripped up the loft stairs while at work, and fell down. Though I felt fine afterward, my OB doc stresses to always call the nurse if you fall of get in a fender bender. So I made a call to the advice nurse, explaining that I felt okay, no I didn't land on my belly, etc. This lead to a six hour visit to the hospital woman's center, hooked up to a monitor and waiting on bloodwork to make sure my placenta didn't tear. Everything's fine, by the way. Just a waste of an afternoon/evening where I could have been finishing up at work and making a proper MoFo post. Don't you want to know what I ate for dinner at the hospital?
Ken mentioned going to try and find something for us to eat. The nurse informed us of a McDonald's on the second floor, which we nodded at but of course weren't even considering. When Ken said he would check out the cafeteria, she mentioned the McDonald's again. Then a third time a minute after that! Come on lady, we don't give a shit about the McDonald's. Plus, a McDonald's IN A HOSPITAL? Double gross.
Ken disappeared for a while, then came back with a lemonade, Odwalla bar, and a bag of Sun Chips. he said they had a grim looking salad bar, and some suspect pita and hummus with no ingredient labels. A sad state for a place of supposed wellness, am I right?
Have you ever been stuck in a hospital with no vegan food in sight? What was your fix?
