Evening All! Discharged from hospital today after 13 days of R&R! They wouldn’t listen to my pleas to stay longer, 3 square meals a day, tea/coffee/biscuits as required and excellent 24/7 room service. Who could fault that!?
Only gripe (we are expected to have at least one!), concerned the lukewarm beverage temperature at breakfast, because it was served as a complete package and by the time you had demolished your cornflakes, scrambled eggs on toast, bread roll and marmalade, the water for tea was tepid. The situation wasn’t helped by the fact that the cups were as cold as charity straight from the frig!
However, later on when asked how did we like our tea, our reply ( my room companion was also an elderly widower with a similar outlook on life) was HOT, milk, no sugar, thanks! Fortunately the nurses had a sense of humour, despite the enormous strain of work: unfortunately it didn’t run to the telling of jokes (medical) unlike my previous visits, such as the one about giving Viagra to elderly gents with their supper, told to me at 3am by a night shift nurse! .
Brisbane is now going through more lockdowns; in particular the second biggest hospital in Queensland where a doctor and a nurse tested Covid +ve., so involving much source tracking. It will be interesting to learn how this occurred, given the rigid controls being applied.
Of course it’s devastating again for the tourist industry with Easter holiday bookings being cancelled by potential holiday makers not sure of being “trapped” by State border closures should the lockdowns be extended without notice on Thursday!
Must say I’m glad to be back and looking out for any interesting postings. Hope my next “news letter” will be more “meaty” after I’ve sorted out all my discharge papers tomorrow!
Good Health (None available in hospital, so here’s to another one. )
