Pros and cons of being admitted to hospital:
- Being looked after, cared for, and felt up all over by the extraordinarily handsome, kind and hardworking Accident & Emergency nurses and doctors.
- Being in excruciating agony and passing out from the pain
- Having to wait over three hours in a busy A & E department before eventually seeing a doctor and given painkillers
- Getting painfully poked, prodded and internally examined by complete strangers
- Being unable to sleep due to my discomfort and the noise on the ward
- Getting visited by a succession of surgeons who casually - and somewhat gleefully - talked about cutting me open to sort out my insides
- Being stuck indoors in a stifling hospital ward during the hottest week this year
- Missing two dates with sexy men that I was due to have
- Not having my laptop with me to write
- Being too drugged up on painkillers to feel creative
- Being unable to have a fiddle due to
- the pain
- the proximity of other patients
- having my blood pressure taken by a nurse every thirty minutes
Thankfully I am over the worst now, though I’m a little shaken by the experience. I’m still in quite a bit of pain, but am pleased to report it is lessening.
Hopefully, I’ll be back to my old ways shortly. Though perhaps I shouldn’t rush into any rampant shags in the near future – I wouldn’t want to split anything.
