It wasn't so bad. I had a plain omelet, a bran muffin, cream of wheat which I didn't eat, coffee, orange juice and milk. They brought me a menu today so I get to choose my meals for tomorrow and the rest of my stay here. That will make things better. At least I will know what I am getting, Hospital food is much better now then it use to be years ago. Yesterday's dinner was rice, sweet and sour chicken and green beans. It was quite good. Have you ever had to stay in the hospital, if so, what was the food like?

Most of what you were given sounds like hospital food to me, except for the omelet. I don't seem to recall eggs being on my menus. Your supper doesn't sound too bad, depending on how it was prepared and seasoned. Hopefully you will see an improvement tomorrow. Whenever I was a patient my family would bring me in food because of the poor quality of the meals and the fact that I'm such a picky eater. I hope that you are resting, are you able to sleep all right there?

I take a sleeping pill at night so it helps me sleep because I know I would be able to sleep here without it.

When I was 12 years old back in the 1970s, I spent time in the hospital and I honestly thought the food was great. I remember being able to pick the foods I wanted from the menu made my hospital stay a little less sad.

It is nice when you can make your own choices. What were you in the hospital for back then?

@Happy2BeMe I was hit by a car in a grocery store parking lot. I had a lot of damage to my left leg with many surgeries. Luckily, I didn't lose my leg and can walk today.

Glad to hear your breakfast was good and yesterdays dinner. I know hospital food can be pretty nasty sometimes. Last time I was in the hospital it was ok but was happy to be home and eating real food.

When my mom was in the hospital last year after my father passed away, I couldn't believe the high quality food they were bringing her at every meal. Of course, she would barely touch it, but my brother and I had no problem making sure that food didn't go to waste! It was really delicious!

@Happy2BeMe I am a bottomless pit when it comes to eating, which means I am perpetually hungry. I will always be glad to take anyone's leftover food that they don't want! With me around, no food ever goes to waste! haha

The first time I was in the hospital for a stay it was Portsmouth Naval Hospital. The food tasted like the same crummy chow we got in the mess hall....obviously. I've heard that hospital food is much better, but I don't want to go in the hospital to find out.

It has been years since I was in the hospital and I thought the food wasn't as bad as we hear it is lol But then when I don't have to cook, I will eat just about anything.

I thankfully haven't, but my Grandma and, Grandpa have, sometimes they liked the food, but they still wanted their own homemade food.

Glad you get to choose from a menu now. My hospital stays started at age 5 for kidney disease, and I do know that the food had to be salt-free. Not sure how they got me to eat a thing.

I've only been in overnight once when I was 13 but I can't recall what the food was like. I'm glad you're getting good food to eat, I hope you'll get the surgery you need really soon so that you can get back home.

Yes, I was in the hospital five years ago for nine days. I don't think I ate much the first four days after my surgery, but what I do remember was decent.
