The Sage has ever so politely explained that he has a couple of things on tomorrow, but that he should be with me around 11 o’clock. Oh well. I know my place. Today, I’ve demonstrated an ability to go up and down stairs and can get about independently. I’ve felt much better too and blood pressure has returned to normal.
Certainly, the best things I’ve brought have been my iPod and iPhone. I’ve listened to music (of my choice) when I didn’t feel like watching television – I haven’t actually wanted to watch tv at all and it hasn’t helped that I haven’t had my contact lens in so the screen would be blurred a bit. And I’ve had encouraging emails from friends and, er, played games. As well as making phone calls, of course.
Odds are that a hospital won’t let you plug in an appliance so you have to give it to someone to take away and charge up or – our cunning ploy – get someone to bring in a laptop and charge it up from that. Too many phone conversations may be frowned on for disturbing other patients and in a ward you won’t be allowed to receive calls unless the phone is on silent. Oh, and I was glad of my old phone when I’d run down the battery on the new one.
I’m going to have to think about fresh subjects to talk about now.
