Room With A View - or View In A Room


Well, the view I have been enjoying for the last couple of days. An intrepid blogger can hardly let minor matters like hospitalisation cause any interruptions to the usual broadcast.

I have shown the exterior of this hospital, and its carpark a couple of times in the past, so why let an opportuinity to venture inside and gain first hand knowledge slip by!(I waited til my room-mate was out of the room - she may not have appreciatd being featured with her best hospital look. The bed to my right was occupied but out of shot, and someone came into the one opposite after this was taken. Perfect timing eh!)

But it's my toes (later edit: note well: I have not yet turned up my toes!), and the view from my bed at St George hospital, where I have had a couple of nights after checking in via Emergency in the small hours Thursday. Gall bladder, apparently. But no obvious cause. Hmmm. Medical science doesn't always know everything straight away. But kudos to the nursing staff in CDU Ward. They were great.

I'm posting this on 1 Dec here in Sydney - Bloggers' theme day - but decided this is an authentic 30 Nov shot, you'd just have to wait for the Bridges theme day pic. Or maybe it's just a bridge between below and above par?

  2. Oh, dear Sally! Do get well and we'll gladly wait for your bridge photo. I think someone should paint your toenails to give your feet a little pick-me-up!!

  14. Thanks for the best wishes everyone. I am well on the road to recovery....no operations (as yet!)

    Hope to get that bridge post up soon, when Blogger decides to co-operate.

    rambling round: no this isn't the emergency room, it's the ward I got transferred to, and I had MrSDP bring the camera in when he came to visit ;-)))

  15. They'd go mad if you took a camera into an NHS hospital here!

    Good to know you are out again and now I'll go back to your bridge picture. It is still the 1st here and I've only seen about two-thirds of theme pics as yet. Doing permalinks as usual so check em out tomorrow.

  17. Sally, you ARE made of sterner stuff, and all your photos are a credit to you.
    I hope you scrub-up, whoops, pull-up, get-up and pull out of there ASAP.
    Best wishes from west of the border, mate.
