I've been wondering!!!!
Sorry to hear that Patricia is in dock. Hope that all is soon well and she is back home with you tomorrow.
Tell Her we wish her all the best Terry.
She is having an endoscopy tomorrow so hopefully it won't be too serious and she'll get the result after a few hours and be home later.
As we will be celebrating winning tonights match against Croatia our minds will be elsewhere SO ...Please Record In advance Michael Douglas "Falling Down" on I.T.V.4. at 9 p.m. (Sky 120 or Virgin 118.) It also stars that excellent actor Robert Duval.
If you have already seen it then OK. but IF NOT this is a Movie about a Man going about his normal day and things become just a little too much for him. Then the Film really Takes Off.......
Patricia is of course very tired and resting a lot which she will need to do. To be honest it has affected me as well because we don't handle things as well as we get older and have our own problems. It's a case of soldiering on I suppose but the family are a good help. She has already been phoned and given two appointments so they are not dragging their feet at the hospital. Thanks again, X
Sad to say but Patricia had a recurrence and is back in hospital for observation and possibly a blood transfusion which she must surely need. We had a horrendous night after calling for an ambulance at 10pm. It took a while for it to arrive and at first we were in the Minor cases, then taken to the Majors where nothing much happened and took a very long time about it. At times there wasn't a hospital employee in sight but at others the usual crowd staring at computer screens. Doctors were wandering about, cubicles empty, people on trolleys in corridors, but no one apparently being treated for ages. We arrived about 10.30pm but it was 7am when she got into a bed and 7.15 this morning when I got home. Needless to say I was soon in bed but had to be up for afternoon visiting time and getting things she hadn't packed to take in with me.
I shan't be long before I'm in bed again - I had the foresight to get a ready meal so that will soon be in the microwave and then hey-ho for the dance of the duvet. Actually it's so warm still that it's more likely just a sheet will do. We've had some rain so no need to bother with the garden. Night for now. X
My Youngest Daughter and her Husband are both Paramedics working on the Front Line in Gloucester. One of the biggest problems they have is when they take in an Emergency Patient, (day or night ) they are not allowed to leave the Person until they have been admitted into A. and E. which means some times they are stood around in the Corridors for hours when they could be back out on the Road answering other Emergency Calls. Certain times there can be two or three Crews and their Patient's waiting just inside Accident an Emergency Queue.
I think I actually won the argument this time. Please excuse me while I do a lap of honour! Self back slapping kind of course. Back soon my dear friends. May I point out also that I am not a morning person!
