Lew (TFSPhoto) Back In Hospital

Thu Feb 09, 2006 4:16 am

Following on from this thread I am sorry to report, Lew is yet again back in Hospital  

I'm told that he passed out yesterday, and was in immense pain.

Now, he is getting treatment at a Private Medical Center, and not the NHS as before.

As soon as I hear anything else, i'll let you know.

I think everybody on this site has too much tied up in his recovery.

Thanks for the text Kaz.

I hope this isn't too bad a setback for young Lew. He has suffered quite enough over the last couple of weeks and another spell in hospital isn't good.

Be strong, mate, we're thinking of you.

Even though I'm in southern latitudes, Lee, Kaz, Andy, let me know if there's anything I can do for him.  Sad

Let's hope there's not much of a setback to this, as said before, private care should be better.

OK Lew, this time's the charm!

You need to stay in the hospital until you're "really" better. Might not be the most enjoyable spot to spend a week, but there's a reason . . .

Hope you get proper care and get no the mend very soon!

No! A lot of nurses employed by private organisations such as BUPA have experience etc, and therefore are older. Give me a recently qualified NHS nurse anyday!

I hope now he'll be allowed to stay in hospital until he's completely fixed. None of this leaving when you can walk out the door because they need the bed for someone else.

Here's wishing for a complete recovery now.

I am sorry to play the devil's advocate here, but what the heck is going on? This story makes no sense in medical terms. I have written that before, and it just keeps getting more and more weird.

I hope he does get better really soon. I hope this new admission is not a sign of a nerve injury that has been overlooked as well.

All best wishes, Lew.

That was my first thought when he told us about "flu-like symptoms"... any kind of infection is more dangerous in his state.

Just when we think Lew is finally on the mind, there's yet another twist to his recovery!

Lew, hopefully getting private treatment will mean they won't be so quick in trying to discharge you. Don't you dare ask to leave before the doctors think you are ready or else I'll be forced to tell them to start sticking that thermometer in a place I know you won't like!

Hopefully you should be getting all the care and attention you need privately, and they'll make sure you're fully fit in no time  Smile

Just had an update from Jade.

They are keeping him in until at least Monday, when they will make a decision on the next move. She says he's looking really ill again and awful.

So sad to see him take a downhill turn and I hope that he starts to make progress very soon. The fact that they are keeping him in until monday says a lot to me.

We're all with you Lew, so hang in there old son.

Jade, thank you for the update. I understand it isn't easy for you and we all appreciate your magnificent efforts on Lew's behalf. You hang in there too, girl!

Sounds logicial....I told him not to screw around with colds. A lot of people don't appreciate how violent a cough or sneeze is.

All the staples or stiches are supposed to do is hold the tissue together until it starts to heal and "fuse" itself back together.
