What is This Blur???

 

 

Blurred lights at  5 a.m.#

1 Is it fireworks???

#2 Is It lightning??

#3 Is it the tail lights on the ambulance at 5 a m ???

Yes to #3,  too dazed to check the shutter speed or anything else, and too tired to hold the camera steady, Never mind,blurry lights are fine.

Hugh has had  a few days of recurring pain, crutches, and Monday night was like the lights, it went in a blur of no sleep, pain medication, that didn’t help at all, and another 111 call about 4.30 a.m. Two ladies arrived, helped him into the chariot that delivers help to so many. I followed over at daylight, and was given a reviving coffee in a few minutes. Maybe we have been there in ED so often, we are  familiar faces. A lovely doctor, by the name of Dan, reassured us, no recent trauma, and to make  another appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon. Medication needs to be adjusted, to control pain at all times !! I think if it does that, it’ll be a true miracle. Home to sleep, watch the rain fall on the windows, and look at my bed with eyes almost closed  already.

I continue to be so grateful for our hospital, the staff, a prompt ambulance service, and friends and family there with  love, support, and offers of everything we could or would need.

Ah, Jean, it's so upsetting when a loved one isn't well. My hubby is confronting caner. He has 5 - 10 years, they say. Right now he is good. sigh. Many hugs.

Oh dear - nothing quite like having to call the ambulance in the middle of the night. I do hope that they can manage to get Hugh pain free.

Look after yourself.

Hugs

Sounds like a difficult time. I hope the pain gets under control and more happy times come soon.

Hannah said...

When we must walk on those high bridges, we must trust in those hands that always hold us. I hope you can find peace in your troubled times, and that Hugh will be better soon.

Thank you all so very much, today was a lot better, new regime with pain medication has helped, but I know this is the stretcher at the cliff, not the real solution. I am uplifted and my heavy heart has a huge load lifted with your thoughts, prayers and words. Jean.

Tanya said...

Oh dear. I'm so sorry your husband is having more pain. It is wonderful that you can get prompt loving care but it sure would be nice if the pain could be stopped completely...

Oh, no - I read down to here to catch up on your news. Poor Hugh (and you)! I hope he's feeling better and that the meds have been adjusted for him. Pain is so terrible to have to endure. Thinking of you, Jean.
