Sardines from Sardinia? I thought we ate them all. Sardines do not absorb as many pollutants as larger fish. Salmon? Salmon is the dessert of seafood yum.

Reading your body: I can tell my body temperature by the degree of discomfort in rolling my eyes upwards and my blood sugar by the degree of ankle nerve pain. Needing to lay on your left side has indications of its own.

All is good, the Dreaded Lurgy is edging out the door as we speak. Haven't coughed much for the past couple of days, just a bit in bed at night - I have noticed the cough is worse if I lie on my left side, so I try not to. My ribs and muscles are thankful.

Enjoying a coffee now, one of only two that I have daily now (used to be four or five) before heading off to shower, dress and face the day. It will then be nearly lunch time......

Perhaps Donuel you would enjoy a nice salmon salad, with Spring onions, baby lettuce, cherry tomatoes and some tinned sardines? Quite healthy and no sweets/carbs to worry about. If you would like this, the Old Lady will happily bring it to you on a fine porcelain plate.

At this moment, I'm tucking into a lovely Ginsters chicken and mushroom pie, with spinach leaves, a Greek yoghurt and some small pink grapes. And of course, a nice cup of strong tea!

Of course Tattie, you can be an axillary (!) nurse. Armpits need a lot of care and attention hee hee.

Pneumonia needs careful nursing Severn. Anyone with that should be monitored constantly. Warm wishes for a swift recovery.

I was a temporary 'axillary' nurse (love that Tattie!) at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmar every year during the long summer vacations at University.

I absolutely adored every minute, and didn't mind one bit the poo, sick, blood and wee that I had to clear up constantly.

Bedpans in those days were steel, not the papier maché things one gets now. They had to be sterilised in The Sluice. And given to a patient warmed, with a stiff shiny square of Izal loo paper folded around the rim to carry it.

My pet hate was the blooming Laundry Store. One of my jobs was to count all the stuff in there, re-fold and restock etc. Boring.

But one magic week I was detailed to assist the Theatre Orderly in cleaning and tidying Theatre One. Magic. I saw all sorts of amputated bits and pieces lying in bowls for transport to the Medical School.
The odd gangrenous leg, ovarian cyst etc. Most interesting.
I had to wear scrubs and natty white rubber wellingtons, and mop the floor.
I reckon I missed my vocation. Teaching was brilliant, but nursing... fabulous!

And I am fully recovered, but can I stay on as a ward orderly? (Or as described in one medical report - "This patient is an axillary nurse" - to which the reply is - Which axilla (armpit) does she specialise in?)
Preferably no bedpans but very good at hospital corners and mouth toilet.

Excellent news about Amos - very pleased to hear it, and thanks for passing it on gnu.

Jennie, your Lurgy sounds like the one I had last year. Cough blooming cough cough cough. I ended up with one lung making a strange hooting sound when I breathed out. It wasn't an infection, just the tail-end of the endless blinking cold germ which had gone on for weeks. I called it 'The Haunted Lung'!

Donuel, don't feel guilty about being healthy. Smiling African Man and Old Lady are in the best of health at the moment, but are enjoying hanging around tending to those less fortunate, as best they can.

Would you like a toasted crumpet and a nice cup of tea Donuel? Or perhaps you could do a bedpan round? :)

Amos Jessup asked me to et everyone know that he's doing well. He has improved at least 75% since the Big Fall, and continues in slowly get better every day. He wants to thank all the people who have so kindly expressed concern and encouragement. He just came back from an assisted walk up the block and back. He's started playing guitar and singing with friends. He feels that through time, he is going to recover 100%.

Love,

Subject: RE: LYR ADD - Skin Cancer Blues - John Dengate
From: Sandra in Sydney
Date: 03 Sep 15 - 02:45 AM

just before The Big Crash I posted this song & it disappeared into the Great Big Hole & was never seen again.

I just found the words (white paper in a plastic sheet protector - how many of those do I have???) so here it is again & the words below have been pasted from my very own copy.

The Skin Cancer Blues (1994) by John Dengate (aka. Solar Melanoma Blues)

Once I had the skin of a newborn child,
Pure and smooth and undefiled.
My blue eyes sparkled like the morning dew
And on my back, just a freckle or two.
Out in the sun with never a care;
Back and belly and head all bare;
No sunscreen, no shirt, no shoes
And now I'm singing the skin cancer blues.

chorus

Oh, it's no mismomer,
Singing the solar melanoma blues.
Fifty-five summers of Australian heat
And now I'm walking down Macquarie Street;
Clutching my referral ...
Must defer to the medical code.
I'm telling you, without a doubt;
They burn and freeze and scrape and cut them out!


I hope they're not malignant ...
I get indignant if I hear that word.
The doctor says; "Son, you'll be fine,
Those beggars on your back - they're all benign".
Be a sensible chap, though:
Buy yourself un petit chapeau (That's a little hat ...)
If I kick the bucket, don't blame the booze;
Sing me to salvation with the skin cancer blues.

chorus

Oh, it's no mismomer,
Singing the Solar melanoma blues.
Fifty-five summers of Australian heat
And now I'm walking down Macquarie Street:
Clutching my referral ...
Must defer to the medical code.
I'm telling you, without a doubt;
They burn and freeze and scrape and cut them out!

Financial Director Kent A. Fordham has assured me in a letter that my insurance is still paying for all this, so I'll be sticking around for a while longer. That's good, because I don't want to have a MRI lapse, as I have one coming up. MRIs are made of this.

I looked out the window to the parking lot the other day and saw Dr. Aiken from Pain Management get into a fancy sports car whose custom tags read "OP8", which I found a little disconcerting......

One can wear what one likes in the hot tub Mrrzy. Or nothing if one prefers. The Old Lady would probably be a terrifying sight without clothes on though, and cause all the convalescents to suffer a relapse, so she will wear her large, baggy swimsuit.

I've just listened to the Marmite Song - excellent and very funny.
It seems to sum up how life is organised doesn't it? "The Bovril with the gravy and the Marmite with the jam."

Husband always finds it odd searching for his pate d'arachide* in Tesco and finding it with the jam.

(*There should be a circumflex over the 'a' but despite lots of kind folk on here explaining how to do it, I haven't mastered my laptop yet in 'foreign'.)

As for a song, since Marmite has been mentioned, you could do no better than one of our fellow Mudcatters, Kevin McGrath (McGrath of Harlow) with his "Marmite Song" on how to find this delicacy in a supermarket: chorus "The Bovril's with the gravy, and the Marmite's with the jam."
So here it is, sung by the late Frank Harte: Marmite Song

open mike is warmly welcomed by Squiddy, the Siamese cats, the Old Lady, Smiling African Man and all the recuperating guests.
Tea, crumpets, cake and a huge jar of Marmite are set before him, and a soft cushion is gently placed at his sore back.

But Old Lady has her eye on the Marmite - she adores the stuff and will probably nick some later.

Singing (a bit difficult while scoffing all the food!) will start any minute now.

Sonia Hanke will play Beethoven's 'Emperor' 5th piano concerto later, when she's collected a clean hanky from the Tavern linen room. (There's a large concert grand piano in the adjacent Music Room)

X-Ray Teddy is available for cuddles if one books a session.

Old Lady has made a large nut-and-chocolate sponge with real cream filling and a very nice quiche (home-made pastry, not for Muslims as there's lard and butter in it)

You have to keep washing the panky out of your hankies. Just ask Nurse Ratched and X-Ray Ted. She's been trying out her X-Ray Teddy, an early Valentines Day gift. Thank God he's been keeping her occupied. I doubt anyone has found a love match for Hurry Gertie over in Therapy, so I still come out hurting more coming out than I did coming in. I tried to beg to the Men's bathroom to hide at Therapy time, but they've been stationing Bedlam Dora outside Mg room to thwart any escape attempts. This place has taken the concept of Crying Therapy to new heights (or is that Depths?), and I hate to see and hear a brown man cry, with the exception of Bobby Blue Bland......

Have been away from the ward for a while in the serious Burns dept, as is usual for this time of year in Scotland. Fortunately the cough has gone after the double strength Amoxicillin!
Never heard of Mr Hankey, but there is a very funny song by Davie Robertson called "The Hanky Song": chorus:

Speaking of hankies, I've recently become aware of that hilarious cartoon with 'Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo'. I watched a tattooing programme on TV and some crazy chap wanted Mr Hankey tattooed on his bottom.

Now my question is, why is he called Mr Hankey? What do hankies have to do with poo?

And speaking of tattoos, would anyone welcome a small tattoo parlour in the Recovery Ward? Any requests and what would one like?
No prizes for guessing mine. A large crumpet, two Siamese cats and maybe a very small Mr Hankey. Lots of space on my ...er...rear end.

I used to love the odd Farley's rusk Jos. My sister was born long after me, and I'd pinch one of the baby's rusks to munch when mother wasn't looking.

I remember those glass bottles of orange juice. Lovely stuff.
What did gripe water taste of? I don't think I ever tried that.

We had National Dried Milk (silvery tin with blue on) which I seem to remember was later found to be deficient in some vitamin or other.

When I was a child we had government issue orange juice - concentrated, in oblong-shaped medicine style bottles. Much nicer and more nutritious than the orange squash we had when we were older.
My children had Virol (which in our house was called 'sticky-brown-medicine') - a big spoonful each every day.
What I really REALLY liked was gripe water.
