Hospital 3 -- So Far, So Good

Chaplain came out with an update while I was getting coffee: the work is done and Mom's successfully off the heart-lung machine.

Surgeon is closing and will be out in an hour or so to give us the lay-language debriefing.

In other news, the "Starbucks" coffee at St. Vincent's Heart Hospital borders on undrinkable. I got 2/3 of a cup and topped it up with half-and-half; this produces merely double-strength coffee, almost like what you'd get at a regular drive-by Starbucks. So what gives, does just any outfit who will fork over the bucks and buy their beans get to sell whatever they brew as "Starbucks?" Cle-ver. I'd thought they at least had the virtue of consistency.

Lacking that, gimme a restaurant-grade Bunn kept clean and bought-in-bulk generic ground coffee, please. At least it won't eat through the cup. It's good enough for the Navy!

If you're complaining about the coffee, then your stress level is down.

This makes me happy.
