Today‘s view ( Part IV )

By bliba  
End of this little series Wink

I was hospitalized for 7 days. Now I finally had the discharge. I shared a room with 2 Dementia patients ... very nice but not always easy.
Especially in the night, when both began to haunt and asked me again and again where they are, where the mother is, where the toilet is .......
The doctors were so nice to let me go after the exams to relax. So I had the opportunity to see the ingenious concert of Robert Forster and his band or I left the hospital and met my visit in a coffee house
Now I'm back home and I'm glad about it

Thank you for your nice and constructive email

Hospitals always seem so calm, medical staff so methodical, life so orderly and formalised. You've captured that.
Welcome back to the real world! It's very different but it's where we belong really.

I've never been in a hospital overnight, though I am due to find out what it's like at the end of next month...

back in 2006i had a stroke and stayed for 10 days in ICU (intensive care unit) and immediately after that for 30 days in neurology department where i shared room with 3 other persons - quite an experience, as you know too well know... great to hear you're back home now and things are finally straightening out for you..
and a fine shot here, of course..
all the best

Glad you're back home Oliver.

I've just spent a week spending much time on the ward with a family member, and the one thing I noticed more than anything was amongst all the business, the concept and sense of time seems to disappear. You've captured that atmosphere really well in this shot.

Bets wishes for a continued recovery,

Been in hospital a few times over the years, the longest being for 3 weeks. Though well looked after, thanks to our NHS, it's great to get back home! A fine shot, Oliver, and ending to the series 👍
