1-Never mind this corona virus stuff…

31st March 2020

Just about a week into the UK lockdown, and already an addict – of Netflix. And Amazon Prime, BBC4, all News channels and even a subscription to Disney +

The lunchtime news was reporting prior day cases had risen to over 22,000 cases and it was increasing at around 3000 cases per day. Serious stuff and admissions starting to rise exponentially. Hospitals were coming under extreme pressure for equipment, ventilators and in many locations – beds.

I’d been experiencing some odd moments while eating for a few weeks – nothing serious, just food getting caught in the gullet and causing a slight coughing fit. Anyway this lunchtime the coughing brought up a quantity of blood…

So it was not with total embarrassment (but close), that I went to the A&E reception at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital (GRH) and wondered if someone could have a look at my sore throat 😉

 

As busy as they were, it didn’t take long for a doctor to come and see me. I explained what happened and out came the lolly stick. Say ahhhhh…

It only took one look and then she said ‘ah – I’d better get you up to ENT for a better check with a specialist’. ‘Can you come tomorrow morning’?

Next day appointment, with all this virus going on?

That got me thinking…
