The Angel of Death - Replaced!

I have just received a really nice phone call - when I picked up the phone a voice the other end asked if I was Richard or Gavin - "Richard" I said - The voice said - "I'm the replacement Angel of Death!" and laughed. How easy it is to win 5000 points out of a possible 50 from me! It was Macmillan Nurse "LH" and we had a long chat - she offered to visit but the present plan is that we'll meet her when we see Dr "K" next Monday morning and in the end we decided to leave it like that - so next Monday we'll see Dr. "K" and meet Nurse "LH". I'm quite looking forward to it.

Hi Irascible

Lets hope she doesn't let you down. I have a question for you. The 40 Occupational Therapy students that I teach are currently studying palliative care as part of their course. I wondered if you would mind if I directed then towards your blog and suggested that they read it and maybe asked you any questions they have? I really don't mind if you don't want to and would fully understand if you would rather not.. no explanations needed..

Lovely - I have no problem with that at all, either you directing your students to the blog and or asking questions!

Wow, the amazing "LH" has got past the first hurdle, she is polite, professional AND humourous on the phone! What anyone would hope for but you sadly can not always expect!!! Yhoo-oo we're (the commentators)all rooting for you and Gavin to forge a rapport with "LH". Another person to fight your corner and tackle the system for help as/when required. (of course,the initials set this nusre apart - LH)

Great idea to have OT students reading this blog. Chance to view their world from the otherside.

I am one of those afore mentioned OT students and find this blog is so brilliant for opening my eyes to the world. Thank you for sharing such a personal experience with us.
