A little tired.....

Ok, so I never did go to bed last night. I still haven't but believe me, I am on my way now. My friend got worse and at midnight, I took her to hospital, and we only got onto a ward after 5 in the morning, so after going to check her place, and sort dogs, contacting her husband on the other side of the world, and daughter too, there was no point in going to bed. I went to work, and we had yet another exam. I told the little angel that if I fell asleep, he was to prod me with his pencil before I made a complete fool of myself by keeling over onto the floor and causing a memorable diversion. He looked forward to the opportunity with considerable glee, but I stayed awake. I survived. Just. Now I am on my 44th wind I think. Not in the least tired. But Glynis is resting in hospital, having more tests, and much better, and friends are all rallying round the way they always do. I have said more than once that this is a great place to be, and our friends are exceptional.

At this point I will add that at some stage of the very long night, she did say in a whisper.....if you put any of this on your blog you are dead meat, or words to that effect. I would not DREAM of detailing the night. Not would I have dreamt of leaving her there alone. But when she is home and better, all bets are off!

Now I am going to crawl into bed. Night.........

Thank goodness she's being cared for if she's that sick. And just reading this made me want to go to bed. Hope you get some much deserved rest. You're a very good friend to have.

Ahh, what a sweetheart to take such good care of your friend. Praying that all works out well for her and that you get some much needed sleep! Had to laugh about you being dead meat and all! lol
