brought to you by the letter
Ok I know a bit of cheating going on here. But if you knew what had been happening in The Laird's Castle of late, I am sure you will forgive me.
This is how I find him in Ward 33N then 34 N then we even made the Infectious Disease Ward (no don't worry, not infectious, just the antibiotic given to cure the infection gave him another bug which they couldn't identify. Then we even made it to 44N - no jokes about going up please. lol He usually was not in the mood for my cheerful self (?) and this is how I usually found him,
I think we have had the Ambulance in the driveway at least 6 times..... I told him to ask next time if he could get Frequent Flyers and a Loyalty Bonus from the Emergency Dept. But all joking aside we are very very lucky to be living so close to the Monash/Clayton Hospital and the Ambulance and medics everywhere have been terrific.
At the moment he is guess what ..................
yes ZZZZZZZZZZZZ ing
it has been like living on top of a volcano ready to erupt........... he thinks hes not ill ...... but have you got a Patient who is a Know All Control Freak.... who is wagging his finger at me giving instructions not to lock myself out, as he is wheeled away on the stretcher.
I have now worked out the solution. The Silent Treatment and The Yogurt Treatment.
If he wont do as I tell him, this is to help him get better... I usually erupt and really growl at him... I know I feel a real mean so and so and then I go quiet and wont talk for the rest of the day. (have never done this before) but wow it works next day we are very compliant. Also he need fluids and if he wont drink enough... then he gets yogurt - which he HATES..... and only yogurt and if he wont eat it, he gets the same bowl at the next meal. Surprising how quickly he can start to drink water etc.
My oranisational and cooking skills are improving in leaps and bounds.
So that's all my woes........ apart from finishing up in the Emergency Dept for one day myself....... my back, I couldn't move. But insisted on coming home with pain killers, walker, crutches which I couldn't get my head around and a stool for the shower which is worth a million dollars as I can hold on and let the hot water run down my back. But necessity insists and I am improving so much so that the Physio has said I wont have to go for more treatment at the Hospital. We have so many appointments for The Scot it would be difficult to fit one it.
But you know ........... there is always someone in more need than oneself, as I found out yesterday... when waiting for the Taxi and he asked me to stand (and guard his taxi) he walked a lady who couldn't move and was in a sit on walker, the whole length of the shopping centre. What a great guy.
Oh and it was our 48th Wedding Anniversay last Wednesday ........ as my cister says I did promise
four better four worse
have I done my fours now.
