Vampifan's Views 71 - I'm back

Yes, I'm back after ten long days in hospital. Without going into too many details I was dehydrated, which led to me feeling tired, breathless and lacking in appetite and energy. I was rushed to hospital and placed in a new wing (just opened in February of this year) where I had my own room with en suite facilities, TV and phone. It was like being in a hotel, not a hospital! I was put on a drip for the whole duration and I'm now back to normal.
I have left personal comments to everyone who wished me well on my previous post. Do check them out if you were one of them. I'd just like to thank you all for your well wishes and messages of support. They were fully appreciated.
I'll be spending today catching up on e-mails (155 of them!) and more importantly, checking up on your blogs. Normal Vampifan service should be resumed on Sunday.
Once again, thank you all.

Bryan.

    1. Welcome back.... get painting. Drink more water the easy way rather than by drip.

    3. We drink loads of tea and coffee at work but still ended up dehydrated. The nurse said everytime that we have cuppa have a glass of water afterwards. Seems to work. Piddling for England mind you !!!!

  4. Bryan, I'm extremely pleased to see you back and hopefully fully-recovered. I can honestly say that I have missed your blogging presence both here on your own site as well as mine and the others I follow. Take care :-)

    2. Keep an eye out for the mail man... as he'll be bringing you something to remind you to drink more ;-)

    3. I can't wait! It's odd because I usually do drink a lot of water during the day. The doctors reckoned I'd probably caught a stomach bug which affected me so badly.

  14. I'm glad you're back and it was a relatively simple fix. Living out in the desert I'm keenly aware of the need for hydration. You have to force yourself to drink water.
