More hospital tales.
The neighbour that I help out went to have a cataract operation on one of her eyes on Thursday, she stayed in overnight and came out on Friday dinnertime. As her son would be at dialysis and she would be by herself until the district nurse called I kept a look out for her so we could settle her and make a cup of tea.
Her sight was really very bad, very blurry, she couldn't see photos, the pictures on TV, not a lot at all really.
So we settled her, made her a cuppa and to my surprise she mentioned how much gray I had in my hair!
She then said how good it was to see the TV, read the instructions on the packet of tablets that the hospital had sent home with her and also mentioned how dusty the cabinet was that the TV
As I'm her cleaner it looks like I'm going to have to up the ante! I don't think I'm going to be able to get away with much!
It is truly amazing how a little twenty minute procedure can completely change somebody's life.
