Mom got discharged from the hospital around one. They have provided her with english translations of her medical records. This was interested as we got to read a bit more detail about what happened in the last few days. We were also able to get all the perscription drugs and suppliments needed for post-treatment.
Mom's been feeling good all day but no major improvements. She's really tired tonight and is heading to bed early.
This is our last night in the hospital. Tomorrow we go over to our hotel for the last few nights here. Here are some pictures of where we've been the last few days. Sorry for there being so many pictures. I didn' tknow what people would or wouldn't want to see.
|Maggie outside the main doors of Tokuda Hospital.|
|Mom going into the hospital. She asked me to point out the signage in this picture - no smoking, no dogs, no guns, no cameras.|
|This is the main lobby of the hospital.|
|This is the Geya Tours office, right in the main lobby of the hospital. This is the company that arranges the medical tourism and translation services.|
|There is also a bank in the main lobby which has been great to switch our euros to Bulgarian Lev. The Lev is about 0.80 Canadian Dollars.|
|We've been stayin on the 5th floor in the "Pension" This wing of the hospital is generally a hotel for patients and their companions while staying at the hospital.|
|This is mom and I's bedroom. I've been having fun playing with the hospital bed settings but after four nights here I am really looking forward to sleeping in a real bed again.|
|As you can see there is a little kitchen area (fridge, stove top, sink) in our room. Sadly there are no dishes to allow us to use them.|
|Here is the rest of the room. The TV is smaller than my laptop screen and has two english channels.|
|We have a nice bathroom in our unit however most units in the "pension" have their bathrooms outside of the unit. It includes a bidet and heated toilet seat.|
|The hospital is owned by a Japanese company. You find all kinds of Japanese thing in the hospital including these artistic tiles in the bathrooms, and occasional signage.|
|Here is mom in her hospital room. She had to stay on in the cardio unit the day/night she had her procedure. The room was small but private. She had a bathroom right in her room, something the shared rooms didn't have.|
|The rest of mom's room. This is my chair that I spent a lot of time in.|
|This was the call box in mom's hospital room. We wanted to know what the purple ? button was for. We decided it was the "we're confused" button.|
|Most signage in the hospital for things we needed was in both Bulgarian and English. Of course the English signs were interesting, such as this sign for the Citchen. I'm guessing they meant Kitchen.|
|The dinning room and cafe are on the 9th floor.|
|There is lots of seating in the dining hall and then a little cafe at the far end where you can get drinks, candy, chocolate bars and wonderful baking! Seriously, the bread here is worth writing home about and the cream puffs are to die for!|
|There is a shop on the 9th floor for things you might have forgotten - pjs, underwear, soap and some snack food.|
|And here we are! Just incase you wanted to see us :)|
