Hospital gowns

A national complaint is wearing a hospital gown. Complaints about how ugly they are, how they don’t really cover everything – understatement here.  The lack of sizes – I think there’s 3 sizes. Let’s talk colors – could gray, faded blue make anyone look like they weren’t  about to throw up their week’s worth of groceries?

The gowns are just the beginning of the hospital attire. Let’s start with the compression stockings. I woke up from surgery with mechanical things squeezing  my calves …they stayed on for 6 days.  Then when my water gained back, I got hospital compression stockings. From the middle of my toes to my thighs, I am squeezed. I have had these on for 6 days. My right leg is almost back to normal; my left leg is not coming along …still holding about 10 or more pounds in one leg.  Looks like a big tree trunk.

The socks finish the outfit. Medium blue with white stripes, that are “grippy” non skid. XX Large only.
