I woke around 5am on Sunday morning with furniture appearing to fall on me, the room spinning, the window swaying my bed was tilting.
I was sweating profusely before being violently ill both ends.
On arrival of paramedics I was given a drug to stop me being sick.
I was taken very quickly to A&E.
The staff there were concious they seemed to have two very different DOB's for me!
I had so may tests during my 22 hours stay.
Bloods, swabs, urine, stool, chest x-ray.
I had 4 litres of fluids. I was moved into Tavy for assessment in an isolation room. Then to Hound ward.
Everyone was so gentle and caring.
Catering to Cleaning staff were thorough and happy to chat. Nurses and carers alike were so kind.
Although no definate virus was found to be the cause.
I know everything was done to check.
I want to say a huge thank you to every single person.
We have a truly wonderful NHS service.
Long may it continue.
