if they are in the hospital? My parents are both this way so I have never seen them in a hospital if they are thw patient. My mom just had a brain procedure done yesterday and has been there all week. I know I will see her soon when she gets home but I have to accept they both didnt want visitors because of all the med people coming in or trying to rest when they can. My dad was in a hosp a few years ago fora few months out of state and didnt want us to visit... I am the kind of person where I would want to visit people to show I care and love them and keep them company even if it is a short visit. Do others you know or yourself prefer to not have visitors ?
