Unexpected hospital stays

Well, here I am blogging from my hospital bed! Argh!!! Things just keep going wrong.
I had a horrendous nose bleed last night and our local A&E could not stop it so I am now residing at another hospital about 45 mins from home. I am in a ward where I am the youngest by 20 years or more and the time is dragging. Wish I'd brought penguin for some light relief!
Tomorrow I see the consultant to have the packing removed and hopefully they can cauterise. The family have just been to visit and now I feel quite down that they've gone home and I'm still here. Every time the nurses approach me with the blood pressure machine I get a panic on and my readings are pretty high, suspect I may be visiting my GP re that once I am home.
Meanwhile, I'm planning an escape route!

I've been in the Emergency Room many times for nosebleeds, but never had to be hospitalized. Hope they get it fixed up right this time and you can go home soon. Hospitals are NOT fun (says she who just spent a morning in the E.R. with abdominal pain and was sent home without a diagnosis...grrr).

Get Well!

Hope you are on your way in the morning. Hospitals are soooo boring unless you are so sick you unfazed by it. # trips tot he Er in the last 5 weeks and I was smart enough to throw my Kindle in the bag on the last trip. Good luck getting fixed up!
