Very productive in spite of everything, good on ya!

I hate a and e, spent many a ‘happy hour’ in there with my son, even paediatrics was a nightmare. On the couple of occasions I’ve been to the adult version, once, we were given a plaster to put on what could have been a nasty glass cut and had to be checked, as the nurse had a broken finger, Friday night in there, even quite early was not pleasant. Less said about the other the better, we were there nearly five hours and saw no one, not even triage. Went home, dosed him up on paracetamol and he went to bed, that was during the night obviously. Druggies, drunks and vomit everywhere. Police trying to look after some people, some were in hand cuffs. Not a great place to be with a 14 year old.

Glad things seem to be improving, rest now if you can. It usually helps and if it gets you strong again for chemo on Wednesday then that’s what matters. 

Good night, sleep well.
