The hospital "fixed me proper" so I should be grateful, and I am, but "honestly I'd be there for a while" if it was up to them. I joked that they kept postponing my release because "the doctors and the nurses they adore me so." I needed help with everything, getting dressed, eating, showering, so I really was the "kind of human wreckage that they love". Also, I was the youngest and most fit person on the ward by far and they all kept complimenting how fast I learned and recovered, "a celebrated man amongst the gurneys." And every two hours, day and night, they came to collect my blood. Gallons of the stuff!
Of course I love them for all their hard work (they really worked tirelessly on me), and without them I'd be dead, but it remains the strangest and most helpless experience of my life that I don't ever want to go through agan. They didn't force me to do any of it, but they strongly "encouraged my complete cooperation," so there I was. At their complete mercy.

This song managed to make me laugh as if the band were in the bed next to me going through the same charade as I was. I thank them for it <3
I gave you all that you can drink and it has never been enough
I gave you blood, blood, blood,
