Pain and Care....

Post  Sue McDonald on Mon Jul 02 2012, 16:40

Laying here quietly with fear and despair
eardrum throbbing, tears in my hair
Pain so disturbing, with mind blowing stabs
shearing intensly as they try to do ''ob's''

Nurses and Doctor try gently to care
my pain and intensity, don't want to share
I'm seeing their words as they form at the mouth
though my brain won't absorb as my head hangs south

Bloods being taken, my body gives in
the pain to intense no more fight from within
Nurses they come with their notes and pain killers
working so hard, nightly routine ? It gets fuller

Their manner so calming, with a giggle or two
through the tears of my night, gives me some light to veiw
Reassurance, much needed, firm and so fair
God..... thankyou so much, for all Nurses that share
the love, care, compassion that they do with such flair.

Hi Lucie ....this is what I have been going through since last Wednesday, was admitted to hospital with ''Quote'' an ear infection like they have never seen .....the pain was and still is in part hurendous....they have put a wick in my inner ear canal as it was totaly closed up and swollen put me on ear drops and was oral and intrevenously dripped with antibiotics until today as I was allowed home to rest ! I see a specialist Thurs morn, when they take the wick out ! Never ever had an earache or ear infection in my life, so its all rather strange unexplained, it has at the moment caused me some hearing loss, which hopefully will come back !!!!! Just feel rather tired taking 3000 mg of antibiotics a day and drops is knocking my sugar levels around stupidily .....like 11.2 at the moment so the newly diagnosed diabeties is taking a back burner because of the ear !!!! What a medical misfit ay lol !!!!!! I am ok though just getting a bit pipped off with it all at the moment ........thanks for caring and commenting on my writings ....you say some beautiful things BIG hug give flowers heart hug
