Hospital

Well, I went again...............bleedin' depressing place - poor old Aginoth.

In order to visit Aginoth I have to wear the latest in high fashion; the blue plastic apron and latex gloves. I hate the gloves, by the time I take them off my hands are wringing wet....



This is barrier protection, however I am puzzled as to who is protected from what in this ludicrous garb. I'm certainly not protected, as today I sat on his bed and I kiss him goodbye every day. He's not protected because I am still traipsing Bristol grime into the hospital, apron or no apron.......and an apron doesn't stop airborne viruses. ah well....[shrug]

You wanna see more of Aginoth?

These are his arms, fully creamed up in dithranol. It has an air of deja vue, cos this is what he looked like last time he was in hospital...... and doncha just LOVE those apricot jammies :-( If you want a birds eye view of his ward - check his blog....

OK, go on - you wanna see this 300 year old hospital, doncha?? Here it is, built in 1735........still waiting for a decent refurb too!


Austere, ain't it? looks like an asylum.....

and next door? oh look, a University building.......cor, imagine the moolah that went into that beauty..........


Isn't life unfair........??

I hope he's out soon. Hospitals are not fun, even refurbished one.

Life sucks! Thanks for the update on Aginoth..Grear pictures of his arms and I love your stylish outfit! Your question is well taken...who is protected from what, indeed....People are always telling me to wear a mask out in the world...what THEY don't get is: I'm not carrying things to people, it's everybody else who mightbe carrying things to me!! And, not all masks are created equal, I might add...I've done quite a bit of research on this...BUT, the Apron is deeply chaming my dear...! (lol)

Thanks for the visit, dear CQ...I know a lot of people are missing you...Hope things are shaping up GOOD for the new job...And I hope your back is better...

Hope he recovers fast. No matter how beautiful a hospital be, I wouldn't want to stay in one even if for free.

Apricot is the new black i hear ;)
Your right that apron really isn't affording much protection to anyone.We miss you !

Apparently it's because "everyone£ wipes their hands on their front/knees, so germs get carried around the hospital on clothes.

have you ever done that?

I reckon it's a bloke thing:-)
