The script in ‘Black’ relate to the sixth morning after I was admitted into St Helier Hospital and it’s what I sent out to my family.
In spite of all that was going on…
…now, if you think about it and look about you whilst in a hospital, especially in the hospital where I was, with regards to being a COVID-19 patient, not a lot goes on…
…apart from the doctors, nurses, health care assistants, tea staff and maintenance staff going about their daily tasks.
Where was I?
…in spite of all that was going on, I, was okay…
…mentally, spiritually and physically, I was doing okay!
And it’s amazing how much mental activity goes on, you know; ‘Thinking’ and ‘Thought’(when there isn’t much physical activity occurring) where I logged every single thought and logged every single activity, which has made this Blog what it is.
Anyway, today or this morning…
…I was told by Dr Morgan that they were going to run a few more checks and they should have me sent home by the afternoon.
You’ll find the timelines go in and out and back and forth but stay with me, stick with me, as everything will come together, as the main aim of this site is to help you and your loved ones deal with the COVID-19 and give your life (back) to CHRIST, whether COVID-19 comes a knocking at your door or not!
Wednesday 8th April 2020 – Day Six In St Helier Hospital
So, or by the way…
This morning I’ve been Dancing and the staff and patients have been joining in too!
The staff said I was making everyone happy and I was the only patient who has ever been of any help.
Well, to me, I was just being me…
We had a music session I named:
‘Radio St Helier’…
…and the jingle I made up was:
“You Are Listening To Radio St Helier
On A Beautiful Wednesday Morning,
Where I Want You All To
Get Up And Dance!
‘And If You Cannot Get Out Of Your Bed,
Well, At Least Shake A Leg!’”
It was a bright and sunny morning and all looked happy, I could tell the sun was shining as I or we in Ward A5 did have a window view, even though the other patients were completely unaware as to their environment.
And once I was off the oxygen it was at these windrow I breathed in as much air as I could from a small crack in the window, as the windows could only open as much as 6 or 7 centimetres if I’m right.
That felt tough at times as the temperature in the ward was just under 26°C or 80°F, so it was a bit stifling at times, especially as I felt I was improving minute by minute, where even the staff said it felt hot in the ward…
…but it needed to be as my fellow patients were elderly, where they kicked their blankets off and you know what happens if you kick your blankets off at night, where it may be a chilly night, right?
So, we could sleep with or without blankets and still feel cosy…
…but during the afternoons, when I wanted to be wide awake, I felt myself feeling drowsy because of the warmth, high temperature or seemingly stuffiness, which made me want to sleep…
…but I refused to sleep, too much, that’s why I started moving, Dancing and walking about, as I need the exercise and I need to get my lungs working to their optimum!
In Response To Where I Mentioned (Above) In The Text To My Family That I Was Dancing, They Wrote:
‘I’d Say The Sheer Fact That You Are Able To Get Up
And Dance Or Do Your Tai-Chi
That You Are On The Mend!’
And the reason for Dancing was to strengthen my legs as that’s where I have lost the most weight!!!
Plus they had been feeling (a tad) weak.
I nearly got to come home today but they decided to keep me in!
In Response To St Helier Hospital Keeping Me In For One More Night? A Family Member Sent This:
And They Asked This (Via WhatsApp Text):
‘Did They Say Anything About Tomorrow?’
Where My Answer was:
‘It’s A Maybe!’
‘So That I Come Again To My Father’s House In Peace;
Then Shall The LORD Be My GOD’
