What have I got in common with the Virgin Mary ??
NO ROOM AT THE INN (ward)
That's what !!
When we arrived this afternoon we went to the designated ward only to be told that there wasn't a bed available, so I had to wait around in the day room for a couple of hours before being shipped to another ward. However I have to say that this ward, The Colman Unit, is very nice and I have settled in nicely.
The inmates are the usual mix, there is the Asian guy opposite me complete with all his immediate and distant family including two very young boys who run around screaming and generally causing havoc. They have also taken over the day room where the TV is. However there are two programmes that I want to see later so I'll be going in there to chuck them out. Well it is for the patients and not visitors !!
Also opposite me there is a guy having knee joints replaced, and it turns out he's done time in prison. Can't think what for, but perhaps he was knee capped in the past !!! Well you never know. Apparently he was "fitted up" of course he was !! I didn't argue with him.
See what your all missing by not being in hospital.
I've had a blood test and one of the surgical team has marked up my right leg with a great big arrow pointing to the tumour area. I'm No 2 on tomorrow's operating list so I should go to theater around 10.30, and hopefully back on the ward by midday, that's if all goes to plan. If I come round, and I'm able I will do another post tomorrow. So now it's nil by mouth from midnight, and no liquids from 03.00
