This morning I managed to get zoom working on the Mac, and attended an information day.
We were given a demonstration of how dispatching works. It is very complicated as events change by the minute. My admiration for dispatchers is huge.
We had a few other topics presented with power points but it was never boring at all. I found it humbling that such wonderful people are working twelve hour shifts and get so little thanks.
I met other governors as well as my lead, and some other staff in other roles. It was a lovely start to my day.
I am sleeping well, and am in touch with friends and my daughter. I have come to know some neighbours who are both trauma nurses. The husband admired my home and my garden. The wife said she had seen me in A&E last week, using my laptop. I remembered then that once I had been relieved of pain, I decided to write. As no one was in earshot, I went over to my bag to get it, and that’s when the venflom was yanked out of my hand and blood spurted everywhere. The IV stand was fixed. Even so, my brain was malfunctioning, I had been in so much pain just by being in A&E.
A third laptop has been returned. I am struggling to find the same quality of laptop within my budget. Even refurbished ones.
My day has disappeared. It’s already 9pm.
