Would you be upset if you had to be in the hospital for a few days,and during that time family only came once or twice a day for a visit? They only stayed between a hr or 2. If you would be upset, how much time do you think family should visit? Im talking about SO, children, parents, or inlaws

No, I would not be upset. If I'm in the hospital, I'm most likely not feeling well. I would use that time to rest.

No, that wouldn't upset me at all. The last 4 times I was in the hospital, I had major surgeries, and was very glad to not have a lot of company, or them stay for long times, since all I wanted to do was get heavy drugs and sleep.

Nope. I was in the hospital last week and kept having to.tell DH and the kids to leave. I didn't feel well and the meds made me sleepy.

Quoting Manaroo:

 This is exactly how I feel. The last time I was in the hospital was when I broke my leg and I didn't want any visitors.

No, unless I was on my death bed, my family's lives don't need to freeze for me.  I was in the hospital for 4 days when I had my gall bladder out (I had some other issues) but I was not dying.  My mom had my kids and she brought the baby to me every day so I could nurse him but DH didn't come at all (he was on his two week drill and they gave him 1 day to get me and the kids where we needed to be) My brother came once for about an hour and my grandmother came with my mom a couple of times.  That's it.  I was not hurt or offended at all.  Besides I needed to get better, not be bombarded with people.

 Psssssh.  If i'm in the hospital that is my ME time!! LOL  I don't ever get it at home so i'd let them come visit for about an hour in the morning and an hour at night then send them on their way!  (as long as what I have isn't serious)!!  I love my kids and hubby to death but would love some chill time!  : )

Depends on WHY I'm in the hospital. If I just had a baby then yes I would be. If its because I had surgery, no because I'd want to rest... If I'm sick then hell no I wouldn't be mad lol..

It wouldnt bother me at all. They all have things to do and places to be and just because I am sick the world does not stop. My children are all young and wouldnt be able to behave even an hour in the hospital (they get too loud after a while and people are trying to rest). I would much rather a short visit twice a day (if that) and to rest for the rest of the time.
