been put on beta blockers and all being well should be discharged in morning . Back to usual tomorrow . Wishing you all well . Dave

I do hope the night goes/has gone well, and you are safety back at home.

in reply to SORRELHIPPO

Not home yet but have to wait for the doctor to tick the boxes and allows me out . All levels back to some sort of normality so I can see no reason to keep me. And let me assure you no aliens or myself were injured during this and definitely no probing 😂😂😂😂

Have a peaceful night. Hopefully home soon x

in reply to teddyd

Got no sleep last night but don't think many people do too many noises and nurses checking in on you. I should get teleported out of here soon as the TARDIS arrives .

Are we copying each other Dave. I'm in hospital, came in at lunch time as breathing is poor , they couldn't find anything wrong until they ran a blood gas test and now they think I've got a blood clot in lung . So here I am 3 am wide awake and hungry.....I missed lunch and was having chest xray when dinner came around and missed that. I was offered 3 biscuits. I hope you're better soon Dave

in reply to Suzie42

I think it may be catching 😂 I hope you are going to be ok and get you sorted out quickly. I'm hoping to get out of here this morning at some stage. All levels are back to some sort of normality. I promise not to post anything food related yet as I know you are hungry

Goodness, I hope your stable enough to be discharged soon. Do they provide an interpreter? Hospital stressful enough without language barriers. How do you communicate with them if your in pain or need something?

in reply to mylungshateme

Well doctor said I can go home. The male nurse who was looking after me speaks English but doctors speak pretty good English got more sorted as an emergency than all the separate appointments 😂😂

Aw, fanks. When I get my leg dressings renewed tomorrow, there will be someone who specialises in my problem. This has been going on for 7 years. Why have they only just got to me.

in reply to Wonderboy6

It's ridiculous but can't blame the hospitals they just haven't got enough qualified staff. And we know who to thank for that one 😂

Wonderboy6 profile image
Wonderboy6 in reply to

Too right we know.i can vouch for the nurses at my clinic, they are rushed of their feet day in and day out.

I've snuck out for a frappe I had to go pharmacy for my prescription so called for a drink. It's not too hot where I am and getting a lift home I have the nurse coming round at 12 to change my compression bandage on my leg . So we both have Angels coming 😂😂👍🏼 have a good day and hope you enjoyed your meal last night

Wonderboy6 profile image
Wonderboy6 in reply to

Superb meal, as per norm. 👌don't have anything planned after that, so just going to have a good 👍 day. It's warm, not a lot of air ,problem for me but will get through. Waiting on a delivery of my new nebuliser, very happy when it gets here.

in reply to Wonderboy6

Hope all goes well buddy glad meal went well, just finishing my frappe get my lift home and and chill out until nurse arrives do my leg check my levels. Then get stuff ready for dinner tonight I guess

Wonderboy6 profile image
Wonderboy6 in reply to

Well, this is what goes down as fun for the moronic brain dead idiots of this country, I get to my clinic to find someone had phoned in and cancelled my appointment, so they called the specialist nurse to stop her visit. Thankfully, my nurse carried on doing the legs freakin people.

in reply to Wonderboy6

Absolutely amazing what***** s well nurse checked my levels 02 still playing up everything else is ok she redone my leg which in this heat is a bit uncomfortable she took the bandage off put it in my washing machine in a pillow case and put a new one on for me 😂😂

in reply to Wonderboy6

This will be like a swamp by morning 😅😅😅

All fresh and clean

So glad you're home again safe and sound. Just curious that you were given beta blockers, when my GP took me off beta blockers the instant I was diagnosed with COPD. They were prescribed for migraines but also kept my BP ok too.
