Chopped Liver – It’s oh so quiet

As planned I am sitting in the ward on a very quiet sunday evening – save for sporadic uncontrolled body functions and some shouty shouty nursing staff.

I should of course be doing this having enjoyed relaxing at home for the weekend and I am sure I would have be benefitted greatly from that and for some cruel twist of fate it didn’t happen.

I am so looking forward to a good nights sleep in my own bed next to my wife – I think I prefer her noises.

They still don’t know the cause of my infection – the most obvious have been ruled out although I have not heard back from the CMV tests.

The consultants would very much like to know the reason even if the antibiotics have worked and the symptoms are disappearing – the blood results have definitely spiked in places – White count and bilirubin high for example.

There is no chance of me getting out of here until that situation resolves.

I know I have only been in 2 and a half weeks – but it will be at least until the end of this week before my next possible release.

You know I have had about enough of it here – must work harder on getting my pulse rate down – or that push it up further?

How do you get your pulse rate down?

    David, sorry to learn that your ‘good behaviour’ weekend release didn’t go according to plan. Hopefully next weekend then.
    Arsenal didn’t have a good weekend either – but then I’m a Spurs man!

    it’s oh. so still
    you’re all alone
    and so peaceful until…

    OK so now I have Bjork shrieking in my head.

    How about replacing that image by slowing your pulse to the Guinness advert drum beat and the words: “He waits; that’s what he does. And I tell you what: tick followed tock followed tick followed tock followed tick…”

    As the slogan said “Good Things Come To Those Who Wait”

      Make sure Fiona that they don’t transplant your imagination when it’s your turn. Cant imagine what you’ll be seeing when they give you morphine button – Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds i fear
