Better half’s hand operation

Better half’s hand operation

Well today’s an unusual kind of day I’m sat in an Asda carpark wasting my hours away . You see my better half (this is debatable) is in the hospital, he’s having an operation tho it should only be quite little . He has Dupuytren's disease (Viking’s hand) on both his hands so the surgeon will open it up and tighten up strands . Whilst this is his left one coz his right one was mended, he had surgery on it last year when we both attended

So I am sat in the carpark as you already know watching trolleys get pushed to and fro, I will wait here probably most of the day but I’ve nowhere else to go so this is where I shall stay . I would go to the hospital and wait around, there’s a cafe with food and drink to be found but my problem with that is the carpark price, it’s very expensive coz I’ve been there twice . When I drove him this morning at the crack of dawn, I hadn’t had shut eye so I was weary and forlorn . I parked my car and walked him in and sat by his day bed listening to the hospital din . Well we waited two hours then they wheeled him away so I drove to Asda to pass away the day

But my two hours parking was far too much, a couple of quid should have sufficed as such . Over a fiver was what the machine said, as I reluctantly paid it and shook my head . So I shall sit in my car staring at the shoppers, it’s very exciting I am watching some coppers . Goodness know’s what is going on but it’s entertaining when all’s said and done . So tata for now I will talk to you soon, I have a sandwich to eat coz it’s twelve o’ clock noon . By the time my husband rings me as I told him to do, I shall be growing a beard feeling ever so blue . Never-the-less tomorrow will soon be here and I’m staying at home, you can have no fear

Hi Jill....Ouch!  That looks painful...I hope your husband's Viking's Hand surgery was successful and he has relief...I know it is so hard waiting when someone you love is in the hospital...but at least you made a poem out of it and made the most of your time...lol  xo ;)
