Poor mum & poor you. I despair about these arrogant 'Call me God' people & they all need to reported. The trouble is that when we're at our most vulnerable we tend to shurt up & accept. Just before my wonderful brother in law died a doctor said to my sister that "He was a very nice man", I think people 10 miles away heard her response to him using past tense. She was supported by PALS when she complained about practically every aspect of his time in what is called a Centre of Excellence hospital especially the fact that his untimely death was caused by a doctor not capable of performing a straightforward procedure that caused sepsis. Clap for the NHS?My mum has been in hospital this last week, with a variety of ailments, all linked with digestive issues. (She was taken in on Monday night, and spent 5 hours in the ambulance, in the car park, as she wasn't considered an emergency. But that's another story.)
She hasn't been able to eat properly for months, and frankly, I don't know what's keeping her alive (she's 77). Must be the gin. They removed 7 large & 5 small stones from her bile duct on Friday, although she hasn't felt the benefit yet.
Anyway, her consultant is a man called Armstrong, and she hasn't been at all impressed with him.
The first time he came to see her, he didn't look at her when he was speaking, but stood side-on to her, and looked all around the room. I said that I thought that sounded like Asbergers. But after a couple of days we reconsidered that opinion. We are now aware that he is actually, Arsehole Armstrong, with a full-blown case of Arsebergers.
