This is my closet...well, it's not MY closet...but it's been lent out to me the past few nights. Oh how grateful I am to sleep in a bed again. Not that I sleep well, but it's soft and cozy compared to the plastic board I have been sleeping on. There are few options of sleep arrangements when your child is in the PICU. Most of the time they prefer that you NOT sleep in the child's area. There's not much room to move and the parents just make it more difficult. They encourage you to sleep out in the waiting area. I'm not a picky person by any stretch of the imagination...I was brought up by Priscilla for crying out loud. But sometimes I can't help but cringe thinking that I'm laying my head where someone's bottom has been all day. (they allow you to sleep on the couches for the night) Sometimes you end up sharing the waiting area with multiple families, families who come from all walks of life. It gets a little awkward though when your sleep mate decides to take the shirt off his very large body and stick it to the plastic couch that he lays down on. (do I really want to sleep in the same area as this guy?) I answered my own question when the snoring began. So...when my nurse offers to get me a coveted "sleep room" (aka: closet), I JUMP at the opportunity. Privacy is far and few between when you are living the PICU life. I feel like I won the lottery - 3 nights in a row now.
