This week I have had a bad bout of flu despite or because of the flu jab! On Thursday I began to recover slightly and was glad John wasn't affected although I noticed yesterday a few coughs and sneezes starting. When he stood up after a half eaten dinner at 6 pm he slumped to the floor. This was new. After trying all sorts short of lifting him I got him to the bathroom by getting him to hold on to my shoulders and walked with him as a sort of cloak round my shoulders. After two hours of trying every which way to get him to stand up to take a pee or to pee in a bucket while sitting on the floor I gave up and phoned the paramedics. They lifted him onto the toilet and he peed sitting down. He is very particular and this offended but relieved him! The upshot was a trip in the ambulance with a high temperature and a wee heart worry. I got home at 2.30am and he is still there just to see what is brewing, according to the doc. Our new mega hospital in Glasgow is like Star Wars but the staff were lovely and joked along with him. His nurse in A & E had plastered his sister's broken elbow earlier in the week which made it all quite a cottage hospital feel. John looked a bit panic stricken when I was leaving but behaved stoically so we will see what today brings.
