Yeah, I prefer a hood because you don't have to remember to take it with you and you don't have to hold onto it unless it's really windy.

Is it still raining? Have you been for a walk?

tamobhuuta 25-10-2019 04:16 PM

It's still raining and I'm feeling wobbly. I think I will walk tomorrow.

nonperson 25-10-2019 05:22 PM

Hello everyone.

Cacoethes 25-10-2019 06:09 PM

Hey np

I'm back on 1-1 and not happy
Had a go at the ward manager

one_step_closer 25-10-2019 06:17 PM

I hope you feel better soon Tamo and have a nice walk tomorrow.

Hi NP, how are you doing?

Oh dear Beckie. :/

tamobhuuta 25-10-2019 06:25 PM

Sorry about that Cacoethes.

How are you osc?

Cacoethes 25-10-2019 06:26 PM

Oh dear indeed
I don't think she took it personally
She knows me well
Had to have glucogel though. Yuck.

chinahorse 25-10-2019 07:18 PM

Oh dear beckie. Feel able to apologise? That goes a long way.

It's been rainy here today too.

I had a hilarious phone conversation with my dad where he read out the knicker packets in sainsburys as I was on my last pair. He still need the lady to tell him where the sizes were. So funny. Then he brought me 8 pairs! Ut OTT

zombiehunter 25-10-2019 07:19 PM

made a start on xmas shopping :-D

Cacoethes 25-10-2019 07:21 PM

She laughed it off
I think we're ok
I will apologise on Monday though when she's next here

Haha! That is funny Lillie

Very organised zombie

zombiehunter 25-10-2019 07:23 PM

my wee granny is sorted and I've got my wee nephew one of his

nonperson 25-10-2019 07:24 PM

Far too early to think about Christmas...

Glucogel is horrible. I've switched to jelly babies to fix hypos - much tastier and work just as well.

Lol at the new knickers, Lillie. =)

Cacoethes 25-10-2019 07:25 PM

Well done zombie!

Jelly babies would have been nicer
Glucogel is nasty

nonperson 25-10-2019 07:27 PM

But still better than a glucagon shot in your backside.

chinahorse 25-10-2019 08:09 PM

Blimey zombie!

I'd think most things are tastier than glucogel, we keep it at work and had an expired one so we dared each other to eat it.

Omg corrie is emotional.

nonperson 25-10-2019 08:50 PM

I think it tastes the same whether expired or not! Most of mine have expired but they'd still work in an emergency!

What's happening on Corrie? I'm not sure I even know any of the characters on there!

I caved and bought pizza for dinner. <3

Edit: That is a lot of exclamation marks... o.O

chinahorse 25-10-2019 08:56 PM

Shame. I'd hope it was nicer when un date.

Ooo what kind of pizza?
I'm jealous my own dinner was inedible.

I don't know any of the new characters. But someone died of cancer and it was their last like day or something and wow.

nonperson 25-10-2019 09:11 PM

Pizza Express pepperoni. Half price in Tesco at the moment.

Sorry your dinner was so bad. How many more will you need to eat before you leave?

Oh dear, I hate it when something like that on tv catches you off guard.

Cacoethes 25-10-2019 09:16 PM

Last time they gave me a glucogon shot in my arm which is less unpleasant but still not great when it's against your will!

I've not properly watched corrie in ages but knew someone was dying

Mmmm pizza

chinahorse 25-10-2019 09:22 PM

Those are good pizzas.

I'm trying to go for the veggie option with the most protein in it so it's usually hot. But dinner really was inedible and they gave me a lecture on protein for healING :-/ leaving monday hopefully. Been here a full week now.

nonperson 25-10-2019 09:23 PM

Well most of the time glucagon is used when someone is unconscious... so usually you wouldn't remember it.

It was nice pizza. And christmas chocolate coins as a starter. Nom.

nonperson 25-10-2019 09:24 PM

Damn, that's a long time, Lillie. At least the end of rubbish food is in sight.

chinahorse 25-10-2019 09:30 PM

Tasty! I'm nomming on bourbons.

Yeah it a long time. I had to wait for healing between my two surgeries and now they won't send me home as the risk of infection is too high with bertie and the fact I have no one to help me.

Cacoethes 25-10-2019 09:44 PM

True np
I usually think that about rectal diazepam for seizures that won't stop..at least I'm unconscious for it! Lol :p

That sucks Lillie
Hopefully you can have lots of tasty foods when you get home to make up for the crappy hospital food

tamobhuuta 26-10-2019 09:14 AM

Good morning x

chinahorse 26-10-2019 09:35 AM


Have yo say washing your long thick hair with 1 hand whilst keeping the othe hand and your thighs completely dry in a shower is not the easiest thing I've ever done.

one_step_closer 26-10-2019 10:33 AM

Morning everyone. How are you all?

That does sound just a tiny bit tricky Lillie!

Cacoethes 26-10-2019 11:29 AM

That sounds impossible Lillie!

Hello everyone

chinahorse 26-10-2019 12:16 PM

It was like well that's the best I can do so meh.

Miserable weather today.

Cacoethes 26-10-2019 01:13 PM

It is miserable outside!

one_step_closer 26-10-2019 01:36 PM

The sun is shining here right now but it was just raining. It was very, very cold this morning.

It's my kitties 10th birthday!

Cacoethes 26-10-2019 01:44 PM

Awww happy birthday kitties!!

tamobhuuta 26-10-2019 02:43 PM

*sings happy birthday*

not_so_insig 26-10-2019 02:57 PM

Aww happy birthday kitties. It was one of mine on the 1st. He was 9.

one_step_closer 26-10-2019 05:16 PM

They're celebrating by having a snooze!

chinahorse 26-10-2019 05:28 PM

Hehe I think kitties celebrate most things with sleep!

I had a visitor late morning for a few hours who brought me amazing things. And I've been asleep since she left. Being a human is very very tiring.

one_step_closer 26-10-2019 05:29 PM

Are you sure you're not a cat Lillie?! I'm glad you had a lovely visitor.

chinahorse 26-10-2019 05:30 PM

Hehe perhaps I am!

one_step_closer 26-10-2019 05:36 PM

Will you be doing much this evening?

I'm dreading the clocks going back.

chinahorse 26-10-2019 05:37 PM

Sleeping! Or watching TV. There's not a lot else to do in hospital

Why so?

Eska 26-10-2019 06:01 PM

Hiiiiii everyone!

chinahorse 26-10-2019 06:02 PM


Eska 26-10-2019 06:03 PM

I'm glad you got some good sleep Lillie :)

Cacoethes 26-10-2019 06:04 PM


Eska 26-10-2019 06:06 PM

Hi Beckie, how's it going?

I'm catching up in this morning's rugby :D

Cacoethes 26-10-2019 06:11 PM

Been better!

My 1-1 person is also catching up with the rugby. I can hear it :p

chinahorse 26-10-2019 06:16 PM

They're late with meds and I'm ouchy :(

Eska 26-10-2019 06:17 PM

Aw, I hope things brighten up for you soon!

Haha, are they watching it on their phone or something?

Cacoethes 26-10-2019 06:27 PM

Hope they come round soon Lillie!

Yeah he was watching it on his phone.
They've swapped over now. I think he was disappointed!

Eska 26-10-2019 06:37 PM

Lillie I hope they've got to you by now.

It was a good match, I can see why he would be disappointed!
