Curtains drawn, TV's whisper, Nurses Giggle, Prayers Said - Body Gone.
One of my ward mates died this morning - I hate Mondays.

Wednesday, 8 July 2009

Appreciates Marea's visit and the suggestion that as I have great views and an in house cinema I should just set up home here at Hospital.

If this wasn't happening to me this would be hysterical. In keeping with the season, like a tennis ball, have been bounced back to hospital.
Is out of the Hospital Frying Pan and into the fire of convalescence accomodation (as yet located). Waiting rooms on the hottest day no fun.

Wednesday, 1 July 2009

Is still in hospital and feels like a mushroom - kept in the dark and fed bullshit.
