He's on a drip at the moment, fluids and pain relief, in Accident and Emergency.
|He's in there. Somewhere...|
They don't know if they'll send him home - get this - with a letter, to take to his GP, to refer him for a scan. To the hospital he is in now. Now, is it just me? Or... would the easiest thing - for everyone really - be to do it there and then? While he's there and in pain? Not make him come home, in pain, telephone battle at 8 am to get an appointment with our GP, for our GP to send him to the hospital for a scan?
Anyway. He's in good spirits because he just texted me this:
Mr G: They asked me for a stool and urine sample, so I just gave them my underpants...
The anal probe...
Yesterday he went to the out of hours Doctors in the hospital. He came home looking a little... subdued?
Me: How are you, baby?
Mr G: I've been violated anally. How was your morning?
I laughed, which in turn made him laugh, which was very painful. Which made me laugh even more.
Mr G: She asked me on a scale of one to ten, how bad the pain was? I told her 'worse than childbirth'. In retrospect, I now realise that I should have kept that opinion to myself, or at least until after she'd shoved her finger up my ass. 'Wiggle your toes Mr Grundy! You're not relaxed enough!'
So, once more it's a 'wait and see' thing. I have a pile of stuff on the bed just in case, pyjamas, soap, towel etc. Although I think in his case it might be wisest to have a bag permanently packed in the wardrobe? Like expectant mothers have?
