Emergency room

Posted on Fri, Jan 6, 2017 at 4:00 AM

Here I sit in QEII emerg, my leg that had surgery four days ago has developed a nasty purple patch so I'm in to make sure I'm not heading for blood clot land.  I'm sitting in what are likely the most uncomfortable cheap  office chairs ever made, for the last four hours. There is no comfort to be found. I have pulled up a coffee table for a footstool so I can keep my foot  elevated as suggested.  They can't give me a pillow, so I need to rest my bruise on the hardwood.    They tell me it will probably only be another four hours. I'm looking around at a large sad group of people, either sick or injured waiting and waiting.  Maybe someone should replace Stephen McNeil’s comfy executive office chair with one of these particularly shitty ones and see if he could sit eight hours. —Unhappy camper
