Hey Luna. How're you?

[Luna] 03-03-2017 08:12 AM

Anxious. Got so much to do and have to make phone calls which I hate.

How are you sweetie?

chinahorse 03-03-2017 08:14 AM

Oh love. Does it help to write stuff down first? I'm sure you can do it. Squishes.

I'm also anxious I have to haul myself to the hospital again for a check on my foot. I'm hoping they will say I can walk on it. Because I'm struggling to look after myself rn and am sneakily walking on it a bit.

chinahorse 03-03-2017 08:22 AM

Just had my first cuppa since Wednesday. Bliss. Beautiful bliss.

[Luna] 03-03-2017 08:25 AM

Yay for tea! That must be amazing.

I really hope your hospital appointment goes well. What time is it?

I just make a phone call so feel less anxious now one is out of the way.

chinahorse 03-03-2017 08:29 AM

That's great well done you. :)

It's at 12. I have all day to wait. Why doesn't uber existing in my home town. The thought of hopping to the bus or ringing a taxi is awful.

chinahorse 03-03-2017 08:29 AM

And it's peeing it down.

[Luna] 03-03-2017 08:40 AM

Oh love I'm sorry :(

I need to get up and put the hot water on. I have zero energy today.

chinahorse 03-03-2017 08:43 AM

Go go go you can do it!

Cacoethes 03-03-2017 08:53 AM

Hey guys.
I'm here now (after getting lost in the hospital basement for about 15 minutes)
Train wasn't too busy, bus was full of school kids but they were very quiet and we'll behaved! (Shock!)

I hope your appointment goes well Lillie.
I'm glad you got a cup of tea!

You can do it Luna! Take it slow if you have to

chinahorse 03-03-2017 08:55 AM

Least you got there in the end! Any idea how long you'll have to wait?

[Luna] 03-03-2017 09:09 AM

woah, well behaved school kids? Are you sure you weren't hallucinating? :P

Cacoethes 03-03-2017 09:25 AM

I've just had bloods and ecg. Apparently the wait for blood results takes 2-3 hours but the Dr will see me before that.

Haha Luna! The girl I sat next to even apologised for having her bag on the seat and moved it immediately! 0_0
Seems like there are still some teens out there with manners!

chinahorse 03-03-2017 09:30 AM

I hope you brought something to do!

Wow. It's a shame that that isn't the norm though.

[Luna] 03-03-2017 09:42 AM

Wow Beckie, that's quite a long wait.

I'm so tired. I want to go back to bed :(

chinahorse 03-03-2017 09:45 AM

Have a cuppa. That cures everything.

Cacoethes 03-03-2017 09:49 AM

I foolishly did not bring anything to do!
Could do with a cigarette and more coke! It's suddenly got rather busy in here!

I agree Lillie, cuppa cures everything!

chinahorse 03-03-2017 09:53 AM

Least you beat the rush beckie! Silly sausage not bringing anything!

I'm just watching housing enforcers. Love that show.

Cacoethes 03-03-2017 09:55 AM

The lady I've been talking to has brought a crochet type thing. I didn't know quite how long the wait would be! I've never been here before.
At least there's a radio. And it's pretty decent music atm!

Ooo that is a good show!

chinahorse 03-03-2017 09:59 AM

Hospitals always involve long waits!

Cacoethes 03-03-2017 10:04 AM

Yeah, I should have seen that coming! :p

I've run out of coke!! Emergency! Emergency!

chinahorse 03-03-2017 10:15 AM


chinahorse 03-03-2017 10:15 AM

Vending machine?

Cacoethes 03-03-2017 10:18 AM

Nope. The shop and vending machines are conveniently located right on the other side of the hospital!
I hate this place!

Doctors and nurses keep going up and down the corridor with notes but they don't seem to be doing anything!

chinahorse 03-03-2017 10:22 AM

Oh that sucks. Our hospital has vending machines all over the place.

Haha busy doing nothing!

I'm going to hop to the bus stop now. Wish me luck. I'm early but it takes ages to hop anywhere.

Cacoethes 03-03-2017 10:24 AM

This hospital is crap in general!

Good luck Lillie! Will be thinking of you. Keep us updated! <3

chinahorse 03-03-2017 10:58 AM

I'm an hour early lol. You keep us updated too beckie!

chinahorse 03-03-2017 11:09 AM

Soooooo anxious I'm shaking. Makes crutches even more hilarious. They should come up with a more stable design.

tiptoes 03-03-2017 11:48 AM

Let us know how you both get on. xx

chinahorse 03-03-2017 11:51 AM

Will do.

How're you doing today love?

tiptoes 03-03-2017 11:52 AM

I'm quite anxious and unsettled today.

Do you have much longer to wait?

chinahorse 03-03-2017 11:59 AM

Oh that sucks. Anything you can do to help settle yourself?

Technically my appointment is now but I think they are running late.

tiptoes 03-03-2017 12:05 PM

I popped out for some fresh air earlier and am now listening to a white noise playlist whilst I try and make some headway with my to-do list.

Ah that is rubbish!! I hope they don't keep you hanging around for too long.

chinahorse 03-03-2017 12:14 PM

Sounds like you are doing all the right things. I hope they begin to help soon.

Not fair a guy who arrived way after me is being seen before me and my appointment was 15 mins ago.

not_so_insig 03-03-2017 12:16 PM

I woke up with severe back pain. Nothing I tried could relieve the pain. In the end I ended up taking 2 lots of painkillers and some deep heat. I am in some pain but I consider it moderate rather than severe. It took me twice as long to get dressed and even then I had to use my sock aid because I couldn't bend because of the pain.

tiptoes 03-03-2017 01:06 PM

Me too Lillie, me too.

Back pain is the worst, maybe a hot water bottle/wheat bag would help?

I hope you have been seen by now Lillie!

[Luna] 03-03-2017 01:11 PM

How is everyone doing?

Cacoethes 03-03-2017 01:41 PM

Hopefully you'll have been seen by now Lillie!

I'm home now thank god! I have some sort of infection so got anti biotics. They were thinking about keeping me in but thankfully decided not to!!

How is everyone else?

[Luna] 03-03-2017 01:53 PM

I'm glad you're home now Beckie. I hope the antibiotics work.

I'm running a much needed bath. Thinking of doing some drawing afterwards.
What are your plans for the rest of the day?

chinahorse 03-03-2017 02:05 PM

Hope they kick in and you feel better soon beckie.

Yay for a nice bath Luna.

Dawn I hope the pain has eased right now.

[Luna] 03-03-2017 02:15 PM

I am clean!!

How are you Lillie? How did it go at the hospital?

chinahorse 03-03-2017 02:25 PM

Woo hoo!

It went well its mostly taken. There's a few dodgey areas but nothing out of the ordinary. Im allowed to go back to the cassel as it's only dressing changes now.

chinahorse 03-03-2017 02:27 PM

I've just had to spend like 20 quid on dressings though. :( cos my donor is coming off.

[Luna] 03-03-2017 02:34 PM

Yay about it taking well and going back to the Cassel. Not so much about the donor site. I find the donor site more painful than the actual graft.

chinahorse 03-03-2017 02:36 PM

Mines not actually been painful bar last night. And I think a lot of tgat is the dressing moving about.

[Luna] 03-03-2017 02:41 PM

Possibly. I once had a dressing stuck to my donor site for a week (I went to Greece), it hurt so bad when they had to try and pull the dressing off. I almost cried.

[Luna] 03-03-2017 02:44 PM

I was just browsing Deviantart and I saw a photo and thought 'That man's back looks odd' so I clicked on it and it was a vagina!! :blink: :blink:

chinahorse 03-03-2017 02:47 PM

lol Luna thats hilarious you thought it was a back!

chinahorse 03-03-2017 02:48 PM

I'm knackered now. But at least I was able to pick up some decent food. Probably why I'm tired first tme eating proper nutritious food.

[Luna] 03-03-2017 02:49 PM

Dear god, I was not expecting that!

Wahey for food, what did you get?
