Gee the receptionist at the hospital had NO sense of humor!
When we walked in this afternoon and said that we had a reservation for accommodation for one night for the spa suite, queen size bed, including breakfast please, she was not impressed..
We were taken up to the ward and weren't there for more than 20 minutes when theatre staff came to collect the man - but he had not been officially admitted yet! So, all hell broke loose, as one nurse started filling out forms while another got him to change and another fixed the bed ready for him the be wheeled to theatre!Then they took off so fast, I had to RUN after them....
The obligatory question of, "Can you tell me what proceedure you are having done" by the theatre nurse got the response of " A penis extention" from the man..
Ask a silly question?
That DID get a laugh..
But, all is well.
The man is now much better, thank you.
It could have been much worse, with one very sick person having to be admitted to the John for emergency surgery if we had not caught it in time.
So ALL IS WELL.
Again...some respite from worry.
