First of all a big welcome to my new followers: The Reason I Save and A Heron's View, lovely to have you along.
Two weeks ago my dear Father in Law was taken ill at home and we had to call in the GP for a home visit. The lovely lady doctor came at 4 o'clock in the afternoon , six hours after the initial call but failed to find a reason for him feeling so ill so she asked us (DH and I) to meet her back at the surgery within half an hour and she would book him in for some tests. The tests were conducted at the Surgery the following week. He now has an appointment to go back for the results on 3rd November...what?? This date will be 3 and a half weeks since the onset of his illness. Bearing in mind that he is 92 he could either be better or have snuffed it by then! The NHS is failing our old people. He lives alone, not in care but fending for himself as best he can. We take him food, take him out in the car once a week and ring him every day. How much harder must it be for others who have no-one to help. Does anyone else feel that the NHS is slipping into oblivion?
Changing the subject completely, a friend emailed me this and I had to laugh...this is my Small Treasure for today......I know exactly what she means!
Thanks for popping in x
