Had to make a tricky decision this morning. I'm due to have a blood test on Saturday to decide if my blood is thin enough to let me out. This morning they weren't going to bother. The doc said that they could do one and I could if it was good, go home.

So the dilema I faced: risk having a blood test and get to go out early, but maybe end up having 2 tests or wait a day.

As you can probably tell I was a wuss and went for the latter option. Had more visitors. izzy_stradlin and eggwhite brought me cookies and a big footed teddybear.

I also found out from darklittlefox that the late night visit last night almost failed as they couldn't get in until a cleaner took pity on them. So I guess the "any time" for visiting hours is really limited by the hospital doors. That said, someone arrived shortly before them and spent the night with their relative. Maybe there is a special entrance?

hmm the longer you stay the more injections you'll get too? Have to say I was fine giving birth to the boys, but removing the needle from my arm - that definitely brought more tears to my eyes. I had to talk lots to keep my mind off it.

you'll probably find you have to get in at a certain time, before the doors are shut (as early as 9 I expect), but you can escape any time, hence the visitors anytime option.

I got someone to bring a chicken takeaway from chertsey as I had my own room, and after tea was served at 5pm, it was an awful long time till breakfast and I was supposed to be feeding 3 of us on that. The room did smell for a while though.

I'm not sure we'll come to visit as the whole family has been ill in one way or another this week and we'd hate to pass it on, but get better soon.

Having the whole clan might be too much anyway. This ward is full of old people who look really ill. They might not appreciate rampant toddler of doom.
There is a side door, which I used when talking on my phone, which I was not quite sure if it locked or not.

Oh honey! Just caught up with the news (havent looked at my friends page for a few days)

really hope you are on the mend. *hugs*
I am definitely walking better. Recovery would obviously be quicker if I had a cute doctor... *nodnods*
When my brother was in the ICU in Winchester, which has anytime visiting, we used to come and go through casualty at night. Not sure if we were supposed to though!
