Early rising

C got called in to work at 1.30am major incident. Got up to see her off. Very proud of her.

I am pleased to find a comment on my rant about fatness.

Work was very busy this am. A lovley elderly man who had a fall before Christmas was on his way to see me and he fell again and was rescued by a kind man who brought him to the surgery in his van. Did some obs. and took some blood then the doctor examined him and decided he needed an Xray to exclude a fractured femur.

Ambulance control said we were efficient which I take as a huge compliment. They sent the guys round in a nano-second and they were lovely. I hope the old gentleman is ok , assuming he his he’ll get referred to a falls clinic. He was concerned that he was being a nuisance and that he would have to put off doing his shopping. I can’t see people of our generation being as capable in old age as his generation are.

Meanwhile the waiting room was filling up and standing room only (tightly packed). Luckily people are patient when they can see there is an emergency.

Day off tomorrow, will go riding weather permittting- “fair weather rider” these days!

Not my pony- obviously!
