Update on OG
Tuesday evening EE was with OG when she was transferred to Respiratory Ward in DGRI. She got a good welcome from the nursing team allocated to her. I left her settled in for the night, and hope she will be a little less 'unhappy' in the new surroundings - still a single room (standard for DGRI), but with a slightly better view of some outside planting. Air conditioning is provided throughout, fairly effective except where the sun shines straight in, but this room faces North and should not get overheated. She has started telling people she feels a little bit better than the day before - which is progress. Visiting is still restricted to two named persons (EE and J) but a bit more relaxed about number of times per day (CAU insisted only once person per day!).
Hi, all. I'm back home. I've caught up with your posts, but I probably won't try to go back so far to make replies. I'm not concentrating very well.
Annette, sounds like you're worn out. I will start the new thread on Saturday night. No worries.
Eagle-eye: I'm glad that OG's situation has improved a bit and she's feeling a little better. I hope that's an indication that the antibiotics are working. Very good that the visitation rules are a little more flexible. Maybe she won't feel so lonely. Please give her my love.
EE - Thanks for better news. My thoughts & prayers are with OG as well as you & J.
DIANE - Welcome home. Take it easy for a few days and rest.
Chilly night, down to 3 C; now it has crept up to 12 C. Only one new covid case in our state yesterday, 6 more today, but over 50 exposure sites, but it is early days. I decided that 3 of my 8 library books are not worth reading - booooring. I have been mixing & matching colours for more beanies and started 3 new ones. Some colours look peculiar in electric light, so matching is a day task. Must dash, time to turn mince, onions, tomatoes into meat pie.
I was sorry to hear my name mentioned as one of the great authors, because they have a sad habit of dying off. Chaucer is dead, so is Milton, so is Shakespeare, and I am not feeling very well myself. (Mark Twain)
An autobiography usually reveals nothing bad about its writer except his memory. (Franklin P. Jones)
Your manuscript is both good and original; but the part that is good is not original, and the part that is original is not good. (Dr. Samuel Johnson, to an aspiring writer)
In reply to Original Goldfinch and Eagle-eye:
This is the plant my friend gave me. I only mentioned she was in a wheelchair as it showed the trouble she went to. Her daughter would have driven her back to the garden centre where she would have to put the wheelchair together and then take it apart again for my friend to get back in the car.
Think my OH will be driving down to Oxford on Sunday, a journey of over 500 miles. His sister phoned last night to say his Dad had taken a fall and is in The John Radcliffe in Oxford. He has facial fractures and a small bleed on the brain and while it isn't life threatening at the moment his Dad is 89 and OHs Sister who lives with her Dad needs some support.
