First I would like to thank you for all your supportive comments on my last post and apologise for not replying. It has been a rollercoaster of a week for the family as my son has been back into the hospital again for further surgery. He is now staying with us again while he recovers, but he really has been through the mill and it is going to take a while before he is fit enough to do much. The treatment he received was excellent, his surgeon came in first thing Saturday morning to operate on him, the nurses and doctors were very professional but the food and cleanliness of the hospital left much to be desired. It has been privatised and the firm now responsible for catering and cleaning should be ashamed of themselves. It has made me even more determined to fight privatisation of the NHS if this is what we can expect. Overflowing clinical waste bins and out of date food. Awful. Thankfully he is here with us now and getting some home cooked food.
When people ask 'if you had one wish what would it be' I would wish for a cure for Crohns Disease, it is such an awful illness. He has been in and out of hospitals since he was 14, and I have to say we are both sick of the sight of the bloody place, but are very grateful for the NHS. Anyway I'm rambling, and tired so I'm off to make a cuppa before sorting out the next lot of tablets to take up to him.
I hope you are all keeping well, health really is the most precious gift any of us could have.
