TUESDAY 19.05.15 - I am thankful for... The doctors and nurses looking after me
*Picture from www.theconversation.com
The last two nights in particular have been really rough. I keep having terrible fevers that leave my skin burning hot, heart racing, really dizzy and generally quite unwell. The nurses that have looked after me, in particular the night shift nurse, have been absolutely wonderful. They are doing their job but have also been really kind and compassionate and treating like a normal person. I feel bad because I haven't worked out how to use the bed yet, but honestly don't have the strength to get out of bed to fix it myself. I keep having to call them to put my bed up and down which seems so trivial to me, but every time they are more than happy to do so. I also have several specialists who seem to be working together to figure everything out. The main doctors I have seen have again been really compassionate and don't treat me like I'm stupid and know nothing. I have been well informed in everything which is important. Having a caring person look after you makes all the difference and I'm thankful I have caring staff looking after me.
