Shoulda gone private


Sparky

Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

Greetings through gritted teeth from my hospital bed! Now, I have great respect for the NHS, but if I'd gone private I wouldn't have to deal with the statutory ward nutter!

She has been screaming blue murder for 2 hours. Claims the doctor is trying to kill her, and is now laying into the nurses with racist comments.

Anyhow, I'm feeling poorly, so send me some electronic sympathy! Or abuse, which is more likely...

She's probably posting right now on "nutters forum" about how she's being forced to be in a bed next to some idiot always going on about "Esprits", have some sympathy for her!

On a serious note I've been in an NHS hospital overnight so understand what it's like. Keep the faith, you'll be leaving soon and you'll be better soon too. Just glad you've managed to get the op, it's all up from now!

Regards

Mat

Claims the doctor is trying to kill her...

Based on your description of her antics, can you be sure he's not?

Hang in there, Gary. Being in hospital is always a high order bummer. But try not to lose sight of "the big picture" (tho I sometimes have difficulty locating it myself--thought I'd hung it in the living room, but it keeps imitating a Cheshire Cat).

Hope they release you soon.

Cheers,

John

People pay good money for that. Top quality comfortable beds, 5 star nosh and free bedside entertainment - What more could you ask for!

Think of money saved V the cost of going private Gary - more to lavish on the Esprit now.

Hope you are feeling better.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Hey Sparky sorry to hear you are poorly get well soon. :)

I don't know if you have watched Michael Moore's film Sicko but I now appreciate the NHS even more after finding out that even with private medical insurance some Americans are denied life saving treatment in favour of saving money.

Even so I have spent my fair share of nights in hospital being kept awake but normally by someone snoring and I hated every minute of it.

Hope you get home soon as there is no substitute for your own bed.

How long have you got to stay in and did they keyhole it or go in through the sunroof?If they used keyhole then will see you Sunday and if not I will let you know what Donnington was like :) .

And to keep your mind fresh, would a rich idle make it stumble between 2250 to 3000rpm? Presume that is the crossover between primary and mains.

I'll get around to it at some point.

Irritating fellow patients..had to put up with one when I was having my burst appendix hauled out when I was seven...a looong time ago. This lad spent all day chanting...so I finally talked him into eating the thermometer...they took him away and we never saw him again!! Peace at last....

Sympathize, Been there done that!!

Snapped my hand a few years ago and had to go in to hospital over night to have pins and plate installed.

The guy in the bed opposite spent half the night banging one out whilst calling out the name Shelley!!!

two disturbing things I discovered the following day were:-

1/ He was a hospital porter from that hospital who'd been injured in a brawl with a patient

2/ Shelley was his cousin

Stop wallowing in self pity and seeking our attention and sympathy.

My Golf needs an MOT and there is still a drip coming from the Esprit!

If you want a knob extension then deal with the pain i say!

Roger,

I think you are being far too easy on him, he's a drain on the National Health and now complaining about our fellow tax payers. Apart from that, get well soon.

Trevor.

I'll get around to it at some point.

Ooh - I can practically feel the love you're all sending!

complications, unfortunately, will keep me here until at least Monday and maybe longer. Meanwhile:

Trevor - wind those mixture screws in a coupla turns.

Chris - you'll have to fit the belts with the crank pulley, or wind the ac one on using the crank.

This advice has been provided cost-free as per NHS guidelines.

I'm sure I've said it before - you're an evil man.

Wahaaay! Out at last, and a bit earlier than expected. May be a while before I touch any motors though...
