I’M sick all night, finally getting some respite about 5am…and some sleep.
Of course, the kids are up early…that’s OK tho’ – while I’m not feeling great, I’m a lot better.
It’s short-lived tho’ – an hour or so later the lower abdomen discomfort and subsequent vomiting hits back.
By early evening Mikey’s arrived…and Margaret and Les have decided that they should call NHS24. After early two hours on hold Margaret’s had enough and takes me to Forth Valley hospital in the snow.
A&E is mobbed and it’s three hours before I see triage nurse Sandra…she’s fantastic and arranges a canula, a range of blood tests to be analysed while we wait to see a doctor….and some intravenous stuff to try and stop the vomiting.
Even better, we’re show. Through to a more private waiting area…
