Just in Time

Lean on me!

It was only on the 5th of May that I wrote about retiring due to Badger needing nursing see here

Within a week, as if wishing to prove me right, Badger decided to add a severe stroke to his cancer. Fortunately, it was on the left-hand side so only his right side is wonky which, given that he is left-handed, is a blessing.

He was rushed to the local hospital and then transferred to Besançon which is the University one and used for the more urgent cases.

So I face the fact that I was right to retire from writing as I know about nursing stroke patients, my mother had five before the one which killed her. Fortunately, in France we specialize in “home hospitalization” and it is possible to obtain a proper hospital bed and other equipment locally. Also, as I have mentioned many times, we have a team of excellent doctors, nurses and physiotherapists in Champlitte.

All I need now is my patient home so I can start organising everything… it used to be my job, you know!

  1. Okay, I got that. However, you’re not on pay this time so easy on the heavy lifting etc., okay? Might be an otter, but no spring chicken either. If in doubt, call Pickfords.
    Cracking picture you found there. Lovely.
    Catch up soon.Xxxxx.

  2. I agree with all the comments. Remember the Oxygen mask thing. You need to take care of yourself to be able to take care of him. Thinking of you all. Best wishes.
