I started the injections to mobilise my stem cells on Thursday morning and now I’m sitting cross legged in my coral and peach stripped jim jams, just the bottoms the top is plain, you have to know where to draw the line, in my own little hospital room. I’ve been in less appealing hotel rooms, well bed and breakfasts. I remember one where the mattress had more peaks than the Himalayas and I refused to take my socks off even for a shower. It’s 04:38 and I woke up and couldn’t nod straight back off so I thought I’d take the time to show off my hotel, I mean hospital room, while I enjoyed a coffee and biscuit courtesy of the NHS. Let’s face it if you’re going to have something wrong with you it might as well be something that gets you an NHS room like this.
You know what this is…
it’s my light dimmer switch and telephone extension socket.
My reclining armchair and TV
My bed, CD/radio and storage with little mini wardrobe!!!!!!!!!!
AND… AND… AND… Ta Da…
My complimentary tea tray, tea coffee biscuits and kettle which are sitting on my fridge.
Oh, and this is my view, okay it’s dark but there’s a lot of lights, so there’s a lot of view, apparently its quite a small room but I think I can safely say I prefer a view over square footage.
Rachel, the lovely nurse, gave me my Plerixafor injection last night and so this should be kicking my lazy stem cells into action. Hopefully they aren’t really lazy they just needed a bit of a rest after the initial treatment.
Disclaimer – I know I take the mickey but I do feel the need, unusually for me, to say that I do appreciate we are really fortunate to have the NHS!
Well enough of that, did I say this is my tea tray?
