Unfortunately I was in the garden yesterday when my leg slipped down and an old branch stabbed up into my leg, in the inner calf. The blood was gushing out including clots. I put some bandages around it which did not stem the flow of blood. I got into the car and drove to the doctors. Once there I fainted and my body went into shock. Very nice. A couple of times I came round to hear the doctor saying she couldn't find a pulse. I was sweating profusely and unable to move. Very scary! The ambulance came and took me to hospital. I was hooked up and luckily enough was better enough to go home to my own bed after about six hours. When I was asked who they could ring I was very aware there is no one here, it is just me. Luckily I have some good neighbours and friends. For the last 6 years I have been here for Mum and George but I am on my own.
VERY quiet today.
