She is now haemorrhaging again. Second 'first response team' has arrived. First ambulance request was lost in the system and another has now been ordered. I'm speechless - she started haemorrhaging about four-thirty. Good job OH is a nurse!
Oh GG, I hope they get to her and she's comfortable soon. Will be thinking about you. X
GG thank goodness OH is a medic. Easy to say but try not to get mega upset, you'll be needed later I'm sure..hugs from me..for once sod gardening x

Best wishes TT .
GG,hope you get some better news soon,
Thinking about you both,and sending virtual hugs xx

Ofsted inspections are nothing in comparison
Ofsted inspections are pretty awful,Dove. Sympathy!!
Kef, you were not at all rude. I like people who say what they mean!
OH now on his way home, but ambulance has not come. medics have taken over and other SIL will go to hospital with her. She is very ill and has been for a long time.
Sorry to here so much sad news tonight. Ihope things will start to look better soon. We need tea [booze ] and sympathy cake.
Got very little done today prior to going on my hols. Still looking for shady place to put seedlings. Looking at forecast they are not going to get any rain next week.
Have a goodnight everyone.
Started this 1 hour ago, then got a call:
Thanks everyone for your good wishes. Just heard that he is on his way to a ward. Just thankful he has come through OK. He was really looking forward to the morphine as he has an abcess on his tooth and although on antibiotics and painkillers, knows it will really help with the pain!!
GG, very worrying for you. Hope your SIL is soon treated.
I'm afraid for the NHS. Watched a prog tonight about A&E and found it really worrying. Was a bit put out when one bod, kept talking about how the old were taking up too much time, etc in A&E. So sorry for getting old. From what was shown, it wasn't old people but stupid people misusing it.
Son seems fine, but all over the place. DIL on her way home. Paid for her to have a cab as she is 7 months pregnant and there was no way was she getting on tubes and trains at this time of night. She needs a good nights rest. So do I.
Once again, thank you all for your kindness and concern. It is very touching. I'm going to have a cry.
Tina, heres a tissue.. glad your sons op is over and he seems to be ok. Hope also DIL ok she must be finding it difficult. Probably not the best tv for you watch tonight ...
All hoping for some easier moments for GG
Pruning wont make your,plant any bigger next year. I don't know how big your plant is but I would prune back a little to cut off flowered wood, give it a feed and I would expect it to flower again with renewed energy. Oh, never put yourself down by saying you aren't "clever". We are all good at something I think and not so good at a lot of things
Such a lot of troubles on the forum just now...as said earlier, it puts most of our issues in perspective. Just hope everything works out well
Thanks Verdun. Will get chopping tomorrow.
The way I see it,old people have been paying in to cover the NHS for all their working life. Half the problem is that people cannot get to see a GP in a reasonable time. So they go to walk in centres or A &E. Also there are some people who think the welfare state should provide everything, and don't keep basics like plasters, antiseptic, and simple painkillers in the house. I took my mum to A&E, (kicking and screamimg) because(at 80) she was having pains down her arm. When I explained this , it took 2 minutes before she was shouted through to see doc. A man piped up that he was there first. He had cut his finger and wanted a plaster. I guess he would still be there 4 hours later. Also there are a lot of people who cannot speak english, clogging up the system. In any other country, if I am travelling, I pay for insurance, so that if I need a doc, I can pay for it. I would have to pay for a translator if necessary. Here we supply translators at no charge, so that the NHS can treat foreign nationals at no charge, when they have never paid into the system. I suspect what we were shown tonight was the tip of the iceberg. The patients who called an ambulance because they were constipated would not have been shown. (I have known this happen) The mothers who went to A&E for prescription for a bottle of calpol, rather than buy one. I could go on but this is becoming a rant.
Whenever I have needed treatment, I couldn't complain about the service, but then I never see a doctor unless I'm desperate.
TT and GG I hope your relatives are seen soon and are OK.
cuttings root very easily if you want more plants
Fidgetbones, I agree with every word you said. May not be the rant thread, but what the heck. Most 'patients' shown on the programme should not have been there or even at their doctors. Total waste of space. An asylum seeker knew his 'rights' and had been a regular visitor at A&E for months, one man had a rash on his leg, a woman thought she had had a stroke because her mouth felt funny - and so it went on. I was disgusted. The sooner they start charging time wasters, the better it will be.
Off to bed and hope I don't feel ill in the night. We have no A&E.
My son made his wife take a picture of him and told her to 'send it to my Mum. She's just put it through. Wasn't that thoughtful.
Gosh so much bad news on here tonight. Guess everybody has gone to bed now. Hugs GG and TT xxxxx
little Ann - thanks I might give it a go.
What, no one here this evening. Are you all still on Morning Forkers? I'm still finding it confusing and wish it was just Hello Forkers.
Hot again today. Picked 2 buckets of peas and spent 2 hours podding them while watchinf A - Z of Gardening and Hampton Court Flower Show (recorded). Think I'm off peas!
Made courgette and mint soup which we are having cold tonight, like vichyssoise.
I do tend towards that feeling too Busy-Lizzie - it's really hard to find the end of the Morning Forkers thread at 5.30am
Has anyone seen this?
"We found Dove in a soapless place"
It's apparently what a lot of people think Rihanna is singing about http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-23284179 but I would like to assure you all that I do have a shower every morning before coming on board
It has taken me ages to catch up on yesterdats posts- still haven't cought up and read them all.
Pleased to see your son seems on the mend Tina, better when he gets home though.
GG hope you are able to enjoy your holiday after all the upset and worry.
I can't wait to get out into garden tomorrow though may spend quite a bit of time holding lounger down.
Hope everyone enjoys this evening and has a great weekend
