Unwelcome Hospitality

Here we went again: another day, another hospital.









This may seem welcoming enough, but the reality was that it was a rack of torture. Successive blood transfusions and no sleep for about 48 hours. Also, total incontinence requiring a nappy. Such fun! Let me see: what sounds go with that apparel? Oh, yes. ‘Wah, wah, wah, sob, sniffle!’

    An excellent description of 48 hours. I hope the transfusion has helped with the fatigue. You certainly have been through the mill. I’m guessing you are home again now, so don’t overdo it. Take care, Les.

    I haven’t been in the blogosphere much of late, but when I come to catch up with you, what do I find? You’re on the sauce, and not even the good red stuff. Oh dear. I do hope you’re feeling better now and home soon.

  16. Are you home again now? Hospitals can certainly feel like places of torture and they have you at their mercy for the duration. 😯
