Sorry if I was grouchy this morning had a night and day from hell, Moms in the Hospital!

Mom has been unwell for a couple of days with a terrible pain in her shoulder we both had a couple of sleepless nights. I talked to Marci about it yesterday and she said if it was not better I should call the paramedic.
his morning after another sleepless night Mom was in terrible pain to the point of tears so I called the Paramedics and as always here in the UK with the National Health Service they were at the door in 5 minutes.
The Paramedic checked her over, BP, ECG temp etc and was concerned she had a raised heart beat and a temperature, but he could find no explanation for the pain. He called it in and they decided to take her into Hospital where they repeated the tests and did blood work and Xrays.
After a couple hour wait the Doc came back and said that the Arthritis in her shoulder was infected, something I had never knew could happen! Hence the excruciating pain!
Then a problem they had no beds to admit her and she needed to go from Bournemouth Hospital to the one at Poole if she waitd for an ambulance it would be another Hour so I opted to take her myself, we had now been at hospitals for 6 hours now and we were both thirsty hungry and tired, first thing I did when we arrived was get her food, it was then they said they were keeping her in, if I had known I would have dropped in at home and got her a night bag! But still other than that the service was fantastic.
So here I am sitting at home hungry thirsty and exhausted, Hoping you thing thats good enough reason to my grouchy start to the day, I am deleting my last message and not looking at the responses, which I probably would not want to see;)
