On Sunday night the clouds had glorious silvery tones, and over 5 minutes changed so much . Gradually it faded from the silver , which was shadowed by grey, to grey-on-blue. I was so lucky to be there at that moment. These are taken from our front lawn area, at 8.30 p.m. and for several minutes more.
Four hours later, at 12.30 a.m. the silver coach arrived for me. Fever, severe headache, nausea and what goes with that, shiver and freeze, then boil over with heat. Suddenly it started,no warning signals at all, glad I was not at a railway crossing!!!
Lance, the wonderful man, loaded me with some medication, and off we went. Believe me, you cannot see much scenery at 1 a.m. Maybe a street light as we arrived at hospital. More medication, lovely nurses, blood taken, 2 a.m. one doctor arrived, the morning dragged its slow way towards 7 a.m. Another doctor arrived, his verdict.” you will not be going home for some time.”
More medication, and finally about 11.30 started to feel a little better. Maybe a virus, maybe 24 hour flu.Regardless of how insignificant I thought this was, I was treated with so much care and thoughtfulness. A bed that sat you up, laid you down, at the touch of a button, an IV line that beeped in time to some unknown tune, trolleys, beds, linen carts all rumbled past my door.At 7 a.m. MUSIC to my ears, the rain was falling. Everyone was so happy, may it continue tomorrow.
I am home, thankful for the care, the transport, Hugh arriving with his silver Primera wagon, and the cats to greet me at the door.
Good things in life are to be treasured
