Sunday 28th July… unexpected trip to A&E

Not the best way to spend a Sunday, but I think I fainted the morning and on the way down bashed my nose, lip and head. Blood on the carpet and definitely woozy!

On advice I called 999 and an ambulance came and picked me up and took me to A&E.

Not my finest hour!

However I had a blood test while I was there, and my WBC is 10.1! A further dramatic fall and back within normal range.

I’m back home now, feeling like a piece of cod – well and truly battered. I’m not sure if my nose is broken, I think I’ll have to wait until the swelling goes down.

Bit of a fat lip too, but I am elated by the WBC results!

Onwards and Upwards!

    Hi Gill,

    Not not an enhancement! But (almost) worth it to get the blood results. 🙂

    Actually I think I have seen you looking worse at the end of a run ashore – but the hospital looks less fun. On the positive side those Boraston white blood cells are made of strong stuff! – good news indeed. Warmest Regards Simon

    Hi Simon,

    I couldn’t possibly comment! Maybe after Valparaiso 🙂

    But yes, hospital less exciting than The Rat Bar!
