  • Mood:

Silence

:)


My dad was transferred to the Critical Care Department at the City Hospital today. It means a long journey each day, but after visiting him this evening I feel so much better. After spending a week in ICU at The Queen's Medical, the silence in the CCD is staggering. He's in a private, air-conditioned room where the heat and lighting is moderated to my dad's exact wishes. Even better, David, the chap looking after my dad tonight is great. It's hard to describe how much of a difference that makes.
