The important thing to remember is that doctors are only human and they make mistakes.
A few months back I was in hospital with influenza B the registrar wanted to put in an NG , I said no. I've had several and I told him and a few doctors that we know socially , that they should have to have one in place for a week as part of their internship. Hideous things. In hindsight I didn't have my regular bowel blockage, just the flu.
We have been in navy health with top cover for 36 years , but at $550- $1200 a day for nearly 3 years in hospital beds ,I think I'd still come out on top.
I owe my life to prof Bob Jones and prof Geoffrey Bond an Australian specialist based in Pennsylvania . Both lovely men also.
The horses are thawing out in the sun. Time to replace all of the wet and muddy bedding in the coops. Time to bang the spiders out of my gumboots.
Apparently we are forecast for nice weather this week , but we have a big tide forecast for 6 pm tonight. I will definitely be donning the gumboots between tides to go down and lock the cows off the bottom paddocks. Having a riverfront property does have its downsides .
Even with health cover the gap was a killer.
Thank you so much for the snow!
