Problem No. one solved. Lets see how far it goes this time. On to problem No. two. Since I stopped working, I was getting most of my office supplies from my daughter. Mostly a package of paper. One would last me about six months or so. I just fed the last of what I had on hand into the printer. Daughter is not working. Looks like I will have to buy my own paper. Staples here I come.

I wish Indian Summer would make up its mind. One day it is hot, then next, cold enough for a winter coat. this is the time of year when you don't know how to dress.
Hope you get some good luck soon and your health improves!
Know the feeling, maybe we should use some of those staples to mend our bits that are falling apart
As they say, life is what happens while you're busy making other plans!
It's getting a bit late here but I'm too scared too sleep. Still peeing backwards and having long conversations with that big white telephone in the bathroom. TMI I know
What can I say, the word shy does not exist in my vocabulary
Hugs!

Morning guys

Well, Steve is still in hospital

The doctor did not end up coming around to see Steve late yesterday afternoon as he was meant to the nurse passed on a message to Steve saying that the doctor said he is to stay in overnight again!

They must have their reasons but the doctor should have come to see Steve!

I spent a few hours with him last night, took in his Kindle and his mp3 player...also the newspaper, anything to take the boredom away for him. He feels quite alright, not drowsy, quite with it...he just phoned me and said he had the most terrible sleep...he just couldnt sleep and wants to come home.

I have told him to demand to see the doctor this morning, as he is entitled to...and to get that drainage pipe out of his stomach..as it has stopped draining..it had stopped yesterday afternoon and if the doctor came to see Steve then, he would have seen that and taken it out...it has stayed in longer than necessary even the nurses agreed it should come out!
I cant get in till 11am when it is visiting hours, the doctors are meant to see patients starting at 10am...so if a doctor has not seen Steve by the time I get there..I will be making sure he sees one...I am so angry with this and will be taking it further!

I so want Steve to be able to come home and have a lovely sleep in our own bed!

I did manage to get a better sleep last night, but still feel yuk...so need to catch on on all the lack of sleep over the last few nights

So sorry to hear that, Kylie. Sounds like it's more for the doc's convenience than Steve's comfort. I would raise some hell too! Hope you both can get some good sleep, and Steve comes home soon!

Thanks guys

I phoned Steve about an hour ago, I asked if he had been given breakfast yet...as they forgot him yesterday and I had to make sure he got something to eat...at 11.30am mind you

I so hope the doctor comes to see Steve at 10am this morning!
