Today it’s the winter solstice, the shortest day and tonight is the longest night, from tomorrow the days will be slowly getting slowly longer.
That is nice to look forward to, in the meantime, I am enjoying the dark December days, and excitingly, it’s nearly Christmas now, three more days to go.
Today has been another quiet day, I got some goods news, heard from my friend Angela that her mother Myra has successfully completed her course of i.v antibiotics.
Brilliant news that Myra has recovered from the serious bladder infection, she developed because no one had kept an eye on her liquid intake.
Really good news, especially as one week ago it looked like she was fading away, seemingly for no reason.
Now she has recovered, she has made friends in the ward, Myra has even become popular with the staff; good job one member of staff was alert.
An auxiliary nurses requested tests to see why after coming out of her operation so well and being so engaged with her environment she suddenly started drifting off an couldn’t talk.
Not Myra, who is a great communicator, a very dynamic woman, so glad, one member of staff doing their job and being attentive to her patients, may have saved Myra’s life.
