Sort of OT, but kind of in-line: After Will was born, I "had" to stay in hospital for three days (he was still in NICU, so rather than check myself out then commute, I just followed hospital procedure and stayed until he was released). So the nurses would bring pills in the morning and evening - pills that the doctor had ordered (pre-natals and I don't know what else, occasionally pain pills).
When the first nurse brought all these pills for me to swallow, I told her I couldn't pills - never had been able to, probably never will. She said fine, she'd mark it on my chart, and could my husband bring my pre-natals from home. Sure could.
Imagine my surprise (and irritation) when the pills appeared in the evening. I refused them again, again telling the nurse I couldn't swallow pills. Same routine the next two days. Finally, the last day of my hospital stay, a nurse came back on duty who I'd seen before. She brought me my pills and asked if I'd like to "try a little harder this time - the doctor doesn't like it if you don't take your pills"!!
I told her (not very pleasantly - I was quite tired and just wanted to GTHO) that I didn't give a fig if the doctor liked it or not - I hadn't swallowed a pill in 23 years, and I highly doubted that I would magically be able to swallow these, even if I 'tried a little harder'. I also told her not to come back in my room.
Last month, I went to look at my hospital records and just out of curiosity, I looked at the nursing notes. Not one of those nurses had noted that I can't swallow pills! Every single one of them wrote "PT refused". Hello!! I refused for a reason, not just b/c I was having a tantrum! I'm in the process of making sure the hospital is NOT reimbursed for all those pills that I didn't take. I sincerely hope they take the cost out of the nurses' paychecks. All it would have taken was for ONE of them to note "PT cannot swallow pills", but no one did. They even brought me pain pills, which I had to chew up and swallow. Let me tell you, most pain pills do not taste good. A lot of them make me gag - not fun when recovering from a c/s.
So the point of this long, OT story is that I understand your frustration (I realize swallowing pills is not the same as circumcision, but YKWIM). Even if their repeated offering of the circumcision was completely innocent, it's still carelessness - read the #($*# chart, already!
Congratulations on your new (intact) son, Lisa!
