Take up thy bed and walk

Mum walked from Acute Dependency to a general ward today. This is definitely downgrading to "Condition Blue". Now it is a case of getting her well enough to discharge. Her arms are very bruised where the medics used her as a pin cushion - apparently her veins are hard to find and of course they needed to take regular blood samples. Eventually they stuck a Dracula tube in her neck with several small bore tubes fanning out to taps on their ends; that put an end to the voodoo doll approach.

Mary and I are off to Italy for the Easter weekend so this is me signing off for a week.
