Here's an extract from Amanda Thorpe's latest blog:

 


The Nurse and the Cannula

Recently I was admitted to hospital, for 10 days, with cellulitis in my right hand that gave me a very high temperature making the hand red, swollen and very painful, so much so that I instinctively brought the other hand up, like a left hook, to guard it when a doctor tried to  examine it........Read More!

 

 

 

 

It's very interesting and I'm sure you're all going to enjoy it!! :)

Hi Amanda,


Oh my goodness!  I was completely beside myself when you were in the hospital and endlessly worried about how you were doing and how they were treating you. 

 

Reading about Cannula Cowboy, oh dear, I could see that one developing from a mile away. You have merrily set the record straight about scleroderma and cannulas and eviscerated Cannula Cowboy and the slowpoke nurse.  It's on par with an Edgar Allen Poe version of scleroderma hospital issues.


Woe to the next Cannula Cowboy, for whom your blog should be required reading.

 

I am ecstatic that you survived your hospitalization and are still here to regale us with your adventures!

Hi Amanda,

 

Goodness me, you did have the most awful time!! The imagination boggles!!

 

Here's fervently hoping that you never suffer such a horrible infection again and aren't left to the mercies of any other Cannula Cowboy and his sidekick on another occasion!!

I empathize with you, Amanda. I hope you are feeling better and that you don't have to go into the hospital again.
