Russell has just been told to shut the fcuk up Russell has.

A nurse was stood at the entrance to the bay for 10 minutes quite obviously so he could see to us all if need be. He walked out of sight for about 15 seconds and Russell whined “I think they’ve all gone home”.

My “Will you just shut the fcuk up” coincided nicely with the nurse returning to his post, he quite clearly struggled not to lol.

The nurses are joining in. One just had to wheel the blood pressure machine past him and asked him to move his foot which was in the way. When he did she said ”Well done !” like you would to a kid that just did it’s first shit in a potty.

When I was on the ward after falling over in the road last month, there was a SPECTACULARLY complainy young man in a separate room at the end. He spent all night every night shouting at the nurses for more pain medication or toast. I know this because I wasn't sleeping too well anyway.

All my other wardpals were quite stoic about their lot and nothing like as complainy as him - although in a lot of pain themselves for various reasons - but were nice and friendly and polite, yet frank in equal measure.

Such that at bed time the complainy bloke would often get shouts of "why don't you fcuking shut up mate?" from the others.

Or "leave it out pal, yeah? You fcuking prick".

I am now imagining that he gets off the empty potty and toddles round the ward with no kecks on, stopping occasionally to do a piss or a shit on the floor and congratulate himself each time in an imitation of the nurse. (Because this is what my sister did when she was of that age.)

They’ve had to move me to a different bay just now, I needed one with a plumbed in O2 supply as my bottle was running out.

There’s some poor sod in here who’s having conversations with imaginary people and being surprised by whatever he’s hearing. He’s also periodically letting off quite colossal farts which really should get a round of applause.

Spooky. I’ve just realised I'm in the bed next to the one I was in after my craniotomy !

She’s only gone and beaten it !

Her blood and bone marrow are clear, they’re going to do another round of chemo and possibly a bone marrow transplant to reduce the chance of it happening again, but for now she’s kicked it into touch. Best Xmas present ever.

That's wonderful news, Dibs!! Feel genuinely cheered to hear it, I hope they can have a relaxed Christmas.

Fantastic news. I don't know this woman at all and yet I genuinely felt good hearing it.

That’s amazing news Dibs.

People beating the big C always makes for good news.


I’m crossing my fingers for the same result for a friend’s son who has just finished his last round of chemo

That's amazing news Dibs.

My Uncle unfortunately died of Bowel Cancer a few weeks ago, we have his funeral just before Christmas. What a horrid time of year for such a thing.

I suppose thankfully he never married or had children so my Dad and his siblings are the closest family members he had but we never really saw much of him. It's only in the last few months of speaking to my Dad that I realised he must have had something like Asperger's like Master F. He was a very clever and talented man but his social skills were appalling. It appears he lived in the same flat in a Housing Association place for the last 20 years but knew none of the other residents in the building which was quite large because he didn't wish to socialise with people. Occasionally he would come and visit us but he fell out with his sister some years ago last time he saw her and didn't really get on with my Dad so I think it must have been a few years since I saw him. I now really regret that I didn't make more of an effort to see him but if he was anything like my son you cannot force someone to be social if they don't have it in them - I'm not the most outward of people in this respect either. I also didn't know he was so ill - I knew he had cancer but the last I heard he had had an op and all was looking fairly good. Next thing he was in hospital and my Dad's brother got a call to say he wouldn't last the night and died alone early the next morning. I'm struggling with the fact he died alone and no one was with him because the message was never passed around family that he was in the final hours. He must have felt so unloved :(
