"Lovely staff! So grateful for all their help."

About: North Manchester General Hospital

I was admitted onto ward C5 on thursday the 5th of February with awful stomach pains and sickness. I was in a lot of pain during my two nights in the hospital. I was being tested to see what was causing me the pain, which is the worst pain I've ever felt!! Every single one of the nurses (day and night) were so lovely to me. I ended up breaking down in years one day over exhaustion; not knowing what was wrong, pain, tiredness and sickness, and this nurse noticed so she came over shut my curtains gave me tissues and water and sat with me until I calmed down. Such a lovely woman and a caring thing to do. Always tried to give me the right pain relief and encouraging me to get up out of bed in the morning. Can not thank these lovely ladies enough absolute diamonds! Never made me feel like I was bothering them! Even when I first got on the ward the night nurse offered me tea , which I wanted but couldn't end up drinking due to being sick again, made a joke saying her teas were terrible and tried to make me smile! Can not thank them enough for all your help! Not 100% recovered yet but I'm getting there.
