The offending appendix was duly removed, two nights in hospital, and now home to recuperate in peace and quiet.
I did take some handwork with me - but found very little free time to do any sewing, lots of chatting to the wonderful staff though! - and watching of tennis.
I stayed in with Miss 5BN, whilst Mr 5BN held the fort at home, we did a swap for one afternoon - whilst I ducked home for a little while.
All in all, it proved to be a streamlined trouble free process, Miss 5BN was given a small gift/voucher from the staff for being the best patient on the ward! --I think this means she did not press the buzzer -- my oh my-- some patients must think they are are answering questions on a t.v. game show! - for how repeatedly they press that nurse call bell.
|Mr 5BN had a birthday - whilst we were in hospital, a quick orange cake, made upon discharge, |
giving of his gifts, - all a day late - but not forgotten.
