[cancer] The things you see in the hospital

This morning, six days after being admitted to my hospital room, I happened to be in the bathroom and looking at the nurse's call there.


Somehow I read "PULL FOR HELP" as "PULL FOR HEEP", and was promptly very impressed that OHSU had an emergency supply of Uriah Heep.

As my dad pointed out, this train of thought was not the least bit out of the ordinary for me.
