I'm baaa aaa ck

This my first entry since last Saturday, 'cuz I been sick. 

With Pneumonia.  Five days in hospital. The first 21 HOURS were spent on a gurney in the Emergency Room.  There were tests and retests...evaluation after evaluatiion...conflicting diagnosis...unavoidable delays... and lots of goofing and inconsideration for old sick people.  The last six hours no one even looked in on me. 

Miss me?

Of course we miss you.  Glad you're back and hope you'll begin clicking away at the keys again pronto.

Of course we missed you, you silly man. And we are concerned about you, Pneumonia is a very serious complaint at your age. You take things easy and let others look after you will recouperating. Those six hours must have seemed like a lifetime, shame on the nursing staff. I hope they read this and it pricks their conscience. Take my friend. Lots of cuddles is what you need lol.

I did miss you!  I'm so sorry you were sick!   I hate hospitals!  Just got out myself and am glad to recuperate at home.  Blessings to you, Penny

Yes, you were missed! But, it's always hard to tell if something is wrong, or if someone is just 'having a life' and not having time for Journals <smile> Glad you are feeling better! Be careful and STAY well!

ERs are frustrating places.  So often it seems as though they're all sitting around in the next room ignoring everybody.  

At least you're home,and presumably feeling better.
