    I am glad that the mix ups weren’t worse because they so easily could have been! That lady who went to sit in ‘your’ chair could have been given your medication too! I hope the Easter weekend is lovely for you. Hope the family members are all better now too.

      We are medicated according to our wristbands, which is good. But the dosage has to be spread over 3 days for me and they were about to give me another 200mg bottle when I was due 100mg. It wouldn’t have been so bad, but it would have meant another extra hour or so in hospital and a much worse headache later on. Thank you, we are all feeling a little better now and looking forward to Easter, although I do miss my old church, I always loved Easter more than Christmas. But that was when I lived in my old house. I’ve tried several churches here but never found another ‘family’

    Uh-oh! The whoopsies are not good. That is good that you noticed the wrong medication and the burst vein doesn’t sound good but I suppose it’s just one of those things.
    I hope you have a nice, lucky weekend. x

      I normally notice burst veins but this one didn’t even hurt, I guess my body is used to them. The next cannula went in first time, yay. A lucky weekend sounds nice xx

    I’m so sorry you had these unlucky things happen to you at the hospital. I’m so glad you noticed the medicine mix-up, that could have been a lot worse! I wouldn’t have been happy about them giving my char away but I don’t think I would have been able to being myself to say anything either #WotW

    That’s worrying that you were almost given the wrong bottle. I’m hoping that it would have been flagged with scanning your wristband though had you not noticed the dosage was incorrect. Glad you didn’t have too long to wait after someone else sat in your chair. Hope you weren’t too sore with the vein bursting with the cannula and then having to have a replacement cannula. #WotW
