So it’s Day 3,of my stay at the hospital.
The care has been excellent. I’m in line for the CAR-T Cell Therapy at Glasgow. In view of this latest treatment for cancer, hygiene is given utmost importance. My room is self contained with the bath attached.
This morning I arose a little late as I was in pain .
As a result, my morning routine changed . I had breakfast and then proceeded for a shower. I was surprised when the nurse called out a little later,
“Turn off the shower.”
“I’m ok “ I replied , thinking that she came to help me .
Again she called out with urgency.
So I hurriedly wrapped the towel around me with some soap still on myself.
As I opened the bathroom door I saw a pool of water in the room. Water had also flowed out into the corridor .
Most embarrassing: three nurses were helping to swab the floor.
I asked them apologetically , “ How do I continue to shower?”
“ Turn the shower towards the wall.” was the response . ( apparently this had happened before)
So the next time I will have to go into the wall !….I chuckled to myself.
Solution : a mason or plumber required to channel the flow of water into the drain .
Some think , the nurses may have to wait for a good length of time before that happens.
In the mean time here’s advice to all including me “turn off the shower’ and save water !”
