Fuhgettabout the candy bars, just have Domino's deliver a few pizzas right to the ICU if you get hungry.
A few savory toppings should help too.
And, several large soft drinks with which to wash it all down.
If anyone who works at the hospital asks for a slice... have them fill out all the requisite forms, get undressed in a nearby room, and tell them someone will be with them shortly.
BTW, pepperoni and anchovies are not going to be covered by Obamacare.

don't buy them from a vending machine, bring your own...it's cheaper anyway.
