Could this be your friend's way of limiting hospital visitors? I have a friend who did the same thing and suggests it to others.

Thanks everyone! I'm enjoying reading about your experiences. They've given me some good ideas, like setting up a comfy area to rest near the tub, which is on a different floor from my bed.
