Nothing to do with QPR or football in general, but deserves to be said.
Reason I haven't been on here all week is that I've spent much of last Saturday to Tuesday in hospital.
Had an infection 2 weeks ago, which seems to have sent my immune system into overdrive, leaving me with nasty, painful & bleeding rashes all up my legs.
Went to the GP last week but it only got worse, so I went to A&E at 9am last Saturday (that's the time to go, if you can choose when to go - there were only 3 people waiting & I was seen in under half an hour!)
Spent all day there eventually (so at least I missed the Boro game & saved a train fare!), NOT because of massive queues but because I saw 8 or 9 different people (from medic to consultant) & had all kinds of tests.Left A&E at 5pm, with an appointment booked to go in the following Monday; however, I took a turn for the worse Sunday night & was admitted to a ward.
Had more tests & treatment on Monday - again, I must've seen 6 or 7 doctors & consultants - and by Tuesday afternoon I was well enough to be discharged. I'm still not 100%, but perfectly able to look after myself, with some medicine.
After all the horror stories you read about the NHS, credit where credit's due
- this is Reading's No. 1 hospital, the Royal Berks. Superb service & care all the way, even the food was fairly decent!

Sorry to hear that Steve, but glad to read that you're now on the mend mate.

Yes, Gawd Bless 'em.

Looking on the bright side Steve, I missed the Boro game and saved myself the train fare, so not all bad news. :wink:

Went for a check-up yesterday; the consultant said "....you're still a young man." :P
