The operation was a success and Mrs P is already pretty nifty on her crutches. The problem has been the anti-DVT drug that she has to inject herself with every day for the next month.
She has a sort of neuralgic reaction soon after the injection which had the doctor scratching his head when we went back to the hospital yesterday. He insisted that Mrs P be readmitted so they could see it for themselves.
The upshot was another night in a hospital bed and hopefully Mrs P will be back home today once they have found an alternative drug regime. Ironic really since the original she was using is manufactured by Pfizer, one of her favourite business clients.
Anyway, it was such a beautiful day yesterday that I whiled away some of the time by taking photographs at the hospital. That’s one of them above, part of the original infirmary built in 1860.
I should stress that it isn’t actually used to treat patients in these days and hasn’t been for a long time. It was used as offices for the hospital bosses for many years, but is now empty and will either be demolished or sold.
The building Mrs P was treated in was opened last year and structures like the Darnton Building are relics of the hospital’s long history.
