quite serious

tags: , , , , , ,

12.30pm 16th August

colourful fingersAfter the X-Rays I retrurned to my normal status of main corridor fire hazard. A nurse came out from the back rooms, moved a child off a chair and sat me down in that chair.

The consultant has seen your X-Ray’s, he thinks they are quite serious and you need an operation. He’s called our hand and wrist specialist who agrees. So please wait here.

As she leaves I start crying.  I’m not sure if it’s because:

  • of the relief that RBH have actually considered my injury.
  • a nurse has been nice to me – rather than treat me as an inconvenient object.
  • reaffirmation that my injury is quite serious – I’m scared of surgery.
  • I’m developing a bad habit – cry way too easily.

Luckily this time I’ve been accompanied by two large monogrammed white (mens) Hankeys that can handle the waterfall

    Ta Expat, its been a bumpy little journey for sure! My friends, other patients, some NHS staff have been quite awesome. I just haven’t gotten arounf to writtiing those post yet because they’ll be more ‘fictionalised’ to keep the lovely people anonymised. Tiger’s been an absolute Gem, as usual. Thanks for the Hankie offer! I love big white monogrammed Hankies 🙂

    If I was going through something like this I’d definitely be crying all the time too. I’m pleased the RBH took your injury seriously and treated you like a human being.

    Froggy, from your “life changing” post today it look like you have been through something slightly similar! (Clinics, General Anasthetic and a choice of doing it or not..).
    The RBH professionals have been top notch.

    There were plenty of reasons to cry on that list… I would have been howling too.
