What’s Up DOC


Well it’s all been going on and it’s official Alzheimer’s Dementia Cancer care really dose SUCK in our hospitals.

Am I surspriced cancer patients are being put in broom cuberds NO


Twice over the weekend my dad was at hospital 1st was surspected SEPSIS and AMBULANCE 🚑 took 3 hours.

It’s good job this no such thing as breathing trouble or lung disease AS 3 hour wait WOULD defo finish us off.

After 10 hours and doctors not knowing cancer from infection THEY sent my dad home saying he was ok.

Only to be taken back SUNDAY where hospital started iv antibiotics for serious chest infection.

Anyway it’s not all bad news as I seem to be carrier of infections diease community pneumonia sepsis SO am waiting to start my home iv antibiotics’s.

Is shame how given my dad’s cancer he catches NOW what I have AND I catch what he as.
