The hospital may be taking wonderful care of the FH but I am frustrated at never being able to actually speak to a doctor about what they are doing and what they are hoping to achieve, and what the long term outlook is. I have spoken to a nurse twice on the phone today: the first time all I got was that the FH was "comfortable" and was due for an ultrasound at 10am, as I said earlier - and guess what he said this afternoon: the FH has had a scan and is "comfortable".....I asked the questions, but the nurse was very reluctant to say more than that. When I asked to speak with a doctor, he said that they only talk with relatives face-to-face.
BUT I met a lady in there yesterday who I know - she is a student nurse. I didn't know that as I only know her as the mother of two lads who come to gym, but I spoke with her tonight and explained my frustrations. She will be at the hospital when we visit tomorrow and has promised to help me to find someone to speak with, to get some answers. She was very sympathetic when I spoke with her, and said that there are a number of people we could speak with, so I have hopes of moving forward tomorrow.
We are going to gym in the morning till 1pm and then we will go straight from there to the hospital for afternoon visiting. Keep your fingers crossed for me that there is not too much snow in this area, please, as I am not keen on driving in snow...
Thanks for all your lovely messages again. You are beyond kind.
