Sorry for prolonged absence; unfortunately recently I have been spending more time in Accidents and Emergency at the University College London Hospital on Euston Road than at home. First my broken ankle then last weekend Mum had a bad fall and as she is both frail and suffers from osteoporosis has spectacularly fractured five lower ribs on the right side. She’ll be in hospital for at least two weeks. Even worse is the day after Dad was also rushed into A&E with multiple infections and is now in Acute Admissions in the same hospital.
Draining physically and emotionally; I seem to be putting in 12 hour shifts like the nursing staff and particularly today I could feel my left ankle screaming and protesting. I may very well take the day off tomorrow to rest the foot and catch up with my beauty sleep.
I have to be fit and hit the ground running when back in Hong Kong; I’ll allow myself one day to recover from jet lag and then it is back to the grindstone.
It’ll be weird being in the Pearl of the Orient again, the climate and culture and pace of life will take a little while to adjust back to but hopefully a lot quicker than when I landed in April.
