Joycie Part3
« on: September 21, 2013, 08:04:41 PM »
Today I woke up in Fetiyhe hospital after one of the worst nights of my life. Bri was t skein to intensive care and I wasn't allowed to see him. I know that lovely sweet Adem phoned t o see how he w as. What would we have done without Jim. He phoned the ambulance explained our plight and helped get the stretcher into the ambulance. I saw Bri in a&be a nod then was told he was going into intensive care. I wasn't allowed to see him but perhaps 8.00 tomorrow.
Shown a bed in emergency which was lovely and grateful for the thought but lady next door was dehydrated and poor 5 month old baby not very well and crying loudly. Just wasn't the place I wanted to be so removed myself to English speaking area.
The night was eventful in the fact that the cleaners start buffing and polishing and security check that you should be there. Sleeping was not an option and every hour on the hour was closer to seeing Bri again.
Had an apple tea in the cafe adjoining the hospital and also was lucky enough to charge my mobile phone so that I could keep in touch with Dave and Mor in Kalkan.
7.00 and the hospital came to life.  Polishing and buffing the floor everything bright as a new pin. Could I see Bri. Sue lovely English speaking Sue arrived and 10.00 would be the witching hour.
Got to go to intensive care with another poor lady whose husband had been taken ill on a gullet. Had to put on gown hat and shoes and Bri nearly died there and then and asked if he could take a photo. The reply from me was not repeatable. Precious five minutes went so quickly and a tearful goodbye said I would see him tomorrow.
Sue came down to see me after talking to the consultant and said they thought he'd had a heart attack although there was no scarring and it would be best if I went back to Kalkan to get clean clothes etc.
Off I went to get a Taxi. Lovely fellow although personal hygiene was a bit of an issue . First faux pad was a stoppage by the police just outside Fethiye. Papers in order off to the petrol station and guess what the only one in a Fethiye with a broken pump. Never mind next petrol station just fine. Took a :detour where I thought I was being kidnapped but son on the 400 and flying to Kalkan. My lovely taxi driver tried to persuade me to phone him in Fethiye to pick me up in Kalkan for tomorrow's journey.
Told him I didn't know what time I was returning and would probably use Kalkan taxi.
Got to Kalkan in good time and met Dave and Mor at Kleos. Lovely lunch back to Sarhane and plan of attack ready for Sunday.
Thank you to everyone for your best wishes. Hopefully tomorrow maybe the day we can resume our holiday in Kalkan. I'll let you know.

Today I got the phone call I was waiting for they were moving Brian to his own room could I come in. You bet your life I could. Packed a small case clean underwear shorts t shirts for Briand same for me as I could stop in the room as we'll.
Down to the taxi rank bought two Sunday papers oh good Birmingham won 4-1 that'll cheer him up and off we went. Lovely drive Adems brother knew about Bri and yet another way to the hospital. It's such beautiful scenery the  mountains were outstanding and today's ride was much more pleasant. I'm tired a though I slept better last night at about 445 I could hear an alarm ringing. Cursing Brian I got out of bed thinking it was his phone no lights blessed power cut. Alarm went off. Back to bed. 5 mins later you've guess it off we go again but strangely it was my bag that was lit up my phone.
We'll on Sunday night I had set my phone alarm for our flight and it never went off. Bless it it did this morning.Didnt chock it out of the window but turned it off.
Brian appeared from intensive care in a wheel chair lovely yellow shoes and same clothes from Thursday. Very tasteful.
Moved him into his room. Lovely ensuite with a big comfortable chair that turns into a bed for me. Television fridge and the bathroom with shower is lovely. If we must be here we'll be lovely and coomfortable.
Sue says she thinks it will be a couple of days so with all mod cons and my husband in nice clean clothes the next part of the journey begins.
Love to all and thanks once again for all your lovely kind wishes.
Soon be back in Kalkan.

Just had a visit from the consultant. Sunday night 6.45 I'm sure that that would have happened in England. He said Bri has got to have an ECG tomorrow and if that's alright we can come back to Kalkan and star tour holiday again. He's been for a little walk today and was fine. Amazed at how beautiful the hospital is kept. All the chairs have been thoroughly cleaned and the floors polished again. It's absolutely spotless. Don't ever be scared if you have to come here there is always somebody who will explain everything to you in English.
They have bought me a meal every time Bri has had one. Perhaps not always to my choice we'll not quite Kalkan style but very edible and I'm more than grateful for the consideration.
Got a bed for the nightingale the room and I'm sure that it will be more than comfortable. Hopefully only Brian's snoring will keep me awake tonight and I'm more than gratefull for Turkey's wonderful health care which has enabled me to murder him myself.

Finally lost the plot posting twice. Can't wait for tomorrow although Brian is a little apprehensive. He suffers with white coat syndrome particularly with blood pressure checks so hopefully we can keep it under control.
I shall dream about going back to Kalkan tomorrow hopefully not at break neck speed but nice and sedately as befits my age. Some hope I fear.!

Not been on EK for a few days so just catching up with your news. What a dreadful shock. Fingers crossed everything goes well with the ECG tomorrow and you can get back to Kalkan.
Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt :)
