Some thoughts on ambulance travel

Post by paintpig » Wed Oct 10, 2012 4:48 pm

If you are lucky enough to be in condition to remember it it must seems pretty cool, unfortunately I was not that lucky :roll:

On Sunday, mid morning (about elevenses) I had what my grandmother would politely call "a turn" :) This impressive piece of noncommittal terminology did actually necessitate the appearance of the above mentioned piece of state infrastructure spending with the accompanying human operators ......and they were most welcome. As to what my "turn" was comprised of, in a medical sense, will remain a mystery having escaped identification from the finest minds yet gathered at Ipswich base hospital on Bathurst Sunday to date, and thus, my episode will forever remain "a turn" :lol:

I am, at present, mostly buggered, constantly tired and very confused. I might keep a low profile for a week of two :? :D

Big UP for ambo and hospital emergency personel, although they confused the hell out of me.

No good mate, I was wondering where you were. :)

I hope you recover quickly.

I to had a big day Sunday, feeling crook from about 7pm, culminating about 3.30am in a sweaty fever, vomiting and passing out 3 times trying to get from the toilet block back to my room (some nice skin removed and bumps on my shoulder and head to!). I finally managed to get myself off to the medical and when the tests came back normal from which the diagnosis went from gastro to kidney stones, with gastro being settled on even though i did not have the normal symptoms for either. A colleague was also suffering a similar ailment and the medical staff asked him what he thought was wrong with him?? Then proceeded to give him anti biotics, that gave him the gastro they longed to diagnose! :P

Ahhh, the wonders of modern medicine. :)

I hope you have a speedy recovery and any further turns you have are related to wargaming and not like the one you just had.

Sounds a bit like burn out. If so, no alc, no caffiene and get loads of sleep.
Get better soon mate.

That's not good news.....so no ideas ? Better lay low for a spell, and keep an eye on that Dave. Ambulance chaps are a fine bunch, I've had to ring them a few times in the past, at all hours. Get well mate and take it easy.

Thank you guys I'm slowly working out which way is up, it was not a good "turn" I had some very bleak moments which thankfully, and from beyond the haze, I regarded as options not certainties. I'll be damned if I'm going to find myself in that position again, it wasn't noice :( :lol:

It looks like I will be getting some reading in initially, a diet of rabbit food then beckons *ewwww* and I'm to make my prime fighting weight before the Adelaide con....... I'll settle for "light heavy to heavy" weight division :D

Get on the mend mate. As to Rabbit food, well stick with it, you will love the benefits and it will help see out the long term with confidence. :)

Good to hear theres light at the end of the tunnel mate!

Good advice from all of your mates here so far, for what its worth I will add that I had a heart attack earlier this year, not serious thanks to the great team at St Vincents's Sydney.

But I have taken it as a wake up call, and as one hell of an effective diet boost - I have lost 15 kilos since then!

One tip - get a hold of, and read, 'Sweet Poison' by an Aussie journo - revealing stuff and will help you lose weight without hunger pangs and clear any ooze out of your arteries. Sugar is the enemy, not fat!
