The District Nurse comes every second day to do my ‘ bowel care ‘. She came yesterday, Monday.
There are quite a few DN’s in the local team. Berniece told me that this week most of them were on holiday, so they’d not be able to visit on Wednesday, or Thursday either, so it would be Friday. A look of fear crossed my face and I said that that meant I was going 4 days ‘ without going ‘.
This particular DN is ‘ tricky’, let’s say, in most conversations. I said that’ll mean that I go 4 days without the necessary attention. She said ‘ no, we’re only missing out 1 visit, so it’s only 2 days ‘.
I tried several times to convince her that i was being left for 4 days, rather than 2, but she wouldn’t have it.
I’ve realised that arguing with Berniece isn’t effective, so I’ll resort to other tactics instead, to ensure that I’m ok.
It would be funny, if it was about something else ?
