I am still here (in hospital) desperately waiting to get home. Our local OT, Sarah Moss, has been an absolute star and has already had an NHS bed, hoist and ramps delivered at home. The only thing keeping me here now is recruiting staff to come in morning and evening to hoist me out of bed and into a wheelchairÂ and then to return in the evening to put me back in bed.
The days drag butÂ I’m fortunate in thatÂ a second year Foundation Doctor, Gemma – I never learned her family name -, took pity on me when she realised I could not get broadband in this ward and very kindly lent her dongle, which allows me to use the Internet. She saved my life so I gave up my box of truffles.
