Oh dear Jan.


Sorry for you both.


Decison of hospital is probably right, not least of which is to get him on a drip to avoid dehydration and causing repercussions on his other problems.


I hope they sort him out.

Oh Jan, you've had such a rough ride recently, both of you.

Fingers crossed for a rapid recovery.

Drive steady while he's on the loo!!

So sorry to hear you're both off to Schwedt hospital again. Get well soon Hans!

By co-incidence I was looking at the photo of you both in Geoff's superb back garden this morning.

Don't suppose Russian Imodium would work...... It sorted out my problem in Bukhara. It bunged me up for about a week. 😲

Thank you everyone

Jean, I stopped for him to use the loo

I arrived home 9pm without him which I expected, I had put his hospital suit case in the van.
He was seen straight away by a nurse who took blood and fitted him up with a saline drip because he is dehydrated even though I made him drink a lot of water.
The blood says his body has an infection and they have to find out where. Most of his tablets have been stopped including the pradaxa (blood thinner) because his kidneys are being effected by this infection.
He is in a room of his own because it is a contagious infection, he doesn’t mind being on his own, he is very tired so couldn´t put up with someone trying to make conversation.
The only thing he will be given to eat is a special dry savoury biscuit , its a bit like dry toast, only tea to drink, but he will have water, Germans only drink funny tea.
He doesn’t want to eat anyway so a biscuit will probably be OK.
The doctor was a very nice young Rumanian lady doctor who spoke excellent English.
I called to tell him we were home, he is in the same station/ward he was on May 24th for the blood transfusion, ground floor, glass door to the gardens outside. We just have to wait and see what they find now, hopefully something that can be cured quickly before he melts away, he lost 3 kg since Monday, mostly fluid but he has not wanted to eat anything because it´s in one end and out the other.
So when we read on the NHS site, Gastroenteritis can last for a few days, we shouldn't have taken notice and contacted the doctor earlier, always easy to be wise after the event.

Little Motley bless him was in the van from just after 4 until just after 9, I wish I had a bladder like him, when we arrived home I expected him to go to his favourite pee spot, but oh no, he just wanted to get into his house, I don't think he was looking for Hans because I let him in and when he saw I wasn't coming in immediately he stood in the doorway and waited. He's just like us, loves his house and garden.

Todays report

I thought to myself this morning, I hope they don't think I am making all this up, it just all sounds so unbelievable.
I wish I was making it up I can tell you.
To continue.
He rang me at 8.30 this morning sounding a lot stronger, yesterday his voice was very weak. He has been on an antibiotic drip during the night, it has started work on his moan cords, moaned (to me on the phone not the staff) about one of the nurses, moaned about them leaving the door to the outside open, mind you there was a storm brewing so that wasn’t very wise of them, moaned about the drip carrier and is redesigning it in his head. I told him to tell them to find the antibiotic for his happy cords.
He said he has tried the poison they gave him, peppermint tea 🤢 two sips and then opened a bottle of water instead, he’s a bit worried about drinking that after reading what it contains, magnesium, calcium and among other things chloride😒 like those `merican chickens your gonna get from Kentucky fried will have in them.
I am probably not going to see him today, I will see how I feel later, I would like to have a bit of body and soul rest for today and pay Motley some attention, I couldn´t wish for a better little friend, he is so patient and doesn’t worry me, he is lying in his favourite corner sleeping.

I just opened the door to the garden and he was out like a shot because I passed the tennis racket, so will now oblige him.

Must tell you this, what comes out is green, I told him to tell someone because it may be significant.
He just rang to say a nurse came to change the drip and told him it comes from his gall bladder and is to be expected.
I said, "It would have a job, you haven't had a gall bladder for over 20 years"
