…Cute Student Nurse – “Have you washed yourself this morning?”
Our Hero – “yes I have”
CSN – “have you changed your nightgown?”
OH – “yes I have”
CSN – “then I’ll change your bedding and you’ll smell like roses”
OH – “it’ll take more than whatever the hospital has to make me smell like roses”.”
Once more I went to sleep without a sleeping pill. I was off with the fairies round about midnight. And if anyone came to check up on me during the small hours I really didn’t notice..
Round about 03:30 I awoke for a while and even had my early morning orange but I was soon back asleep.
Even though it was a Sunday there was an alarm set, and at 06:30 too, and it was that which awoke me this morning. Plenty of stuff on the dictaphone from during the night and one of these days I’ll transcribe them all.
After breakfast we had the interchange as mentioned above and she also bought me a small bucket with a lid. Apparently I have an appointment with the nephrologist on Monday so he needs a … errr … 24-hour sample.
The doctor has been round again to check up on me. I talked mainly about my knee because that’s my priority right now but he didn’t seem to be all that interested. In fact I have the impression that the doctors here at weekend are just here basically to make sure that the patients are still alive. and stay alive until Monday.
The rest of the day I’ve been left to my own devices, apart from the odd visit from a nurse with food and medication, and for a couple of chats here and there on the internet. As a result I’ve been catching up on a few bits and pieces that I’ve let go for a while.
But as I seem to be feeling better in certain respects I’m going to make a start tomorrow on catching up on more important things that I’ve let go just recently.
But how much time will I have?
It looks as if I’m going to be busy for the next couple of days.
