Today's One-Minute Writer prompt is: Hospital--Write about a time you were in the hospital (as a patient or visitor.)
I was in the hospital last summer for nine days. I had severe cellulitis in my leg and developed a staph infection. I was on IV antibiotics which had to be administered through an IV line placed in my arm internally. The day I came home, I had an allergic reaction to the medicine and spent the 4th of July in the ER. All told, I was on home health care and IV antibiotics for six more weeks. I lost a lot of hair, but thank God, I didn't lose my leg. I very well could have or, at worst, I could have died. I was one of the lucky ones.
