"For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn."
l can beat that by half:
"Hospital food sucks."

Stories like this are fraught with tension and pathos, and create much anxiety in the heart of the loving reader. Will there be a sequel, that fills in some of the details, she asked? Staying tuned for more.

Hope your hospital visit was only for good things.
But I can say that I've always enjoyed the food at Ein Karem...

Hope you're all OK.
I assume you haven't experienced the London Hospital Kosher Meals Service extravaganza.

Here's one you've probably heard. A fellow wrote to Rudyard Kipling, "I've heard that you are paid $5 a word. Here's $5 - write me a word." Kipling wrote him back the following word: "Thanks!"
