I posted last week about my dad (Ken) being took into hospital. Unfortunately he is still in, they found a few things wrong so they kept him in to get him sorted. He is due an operation this afternoon to improve the blood flow to his foot as he has a diabetic ulcer that is not healing properly. I rang the hospital on Saturday and they said they would call me back and let me speak to him. Unfortunately they didn't. I rang again on Sunday and they took the phone to him and we had a great chat. He was singing the praises of the nursing staff and told me that the ward sister had sat with him for over an hour trying to get through to me on the phone (made me feel bad as I thought they had not bothered). He was transferred to QMC today and the nurses and patients on the ward at city all said they would miss him as he had kept them so entertained. Along with telling young nurses "I wish I was 20 years younger " that would put him at 72 and the nurses were probably early twenties. A couple of his quotes were "I've had so many people looking at my a**e I feel like Elton John" and "they gave me a pessary that was so big if I had f**Ted it would have landed in Glasgow". As @ukzero1 said, it is amazing what you can get away with when you are a pensioner.
