How I lifted our mood at the hospital?


How I lifted our mood at the hospital?

Well after the last few less than happy blog posts I thought I would throw in an amusing one that may make you smile.

Helen and I spent a ridiculous amount of time in hospitals through our journey and we ended up being able to walk around the Bath Royal United Hospital without a worry about where we were going. We just knew where we were going as we had walked the corridors countless times before. In fact we could’ve easily taken a job at the front desk helping people find their way.

We also spent a lot of time just waiting in the waiting rooms for treatments, procedures, appointments and result so we had a lot of time to kill. Bearing in mind what we were there for we were sometimes both sat in silence, deep in thought and worried about what could happen, what was going to happen or what the results were going to be.

It was then that I would pull out my special hospital joke that would always lighten up the mood a bit. Even though after a while Helen knew the joke she would always laugh at me.. I don’t think you can ever beat someone just being silly.

So when you are next in a hospital and the mood is not so nice remember this joke that will be sure to lift up your mood.

Doctor, Grief, bereavement, cancer


Here goes… are you ready?

        Finding it oh so hard Michael but I don’t need to tell you that. You re doing amazingly and thank you for being brave enough to share your blog and your feelings and helping others along the way. I hope one day myself to feel strong enough to do a blog. My daughter Laura has a fashion blog as that was one of her loves. She did not update it much after diagnosis as she did not do well with her chemotherapy and had bad side effects. You are doing a great thing keep it up. Love and hugs Lesley x
