Dr Burns told me he'd be sending me to see his colleague a Neurologist. He said I had probably seen him whilst I was on the ward. I said I remembered someone seeing the girl in the bed opposite every day, and had thought it was a different man every day. She turned out to have epilepsy. He said 'yes that's him'.
Dr Burns also told me he would be sending me to see a Psychologist and referring me to his Neuro OT and Neuro Physio. He finished by saying he would also be issuing me with a soft collar to wear all the time, except when I was in bed when I was to use a rolled up towel under my neck.
When I got home, Alan asked me as usual, what the Dr had said, what had happened at the hospital. As usual, I couldn't remember anything. He had stopped coming to the hospital with me a few months after my accident when he had gone back to work, as he'd run out of holidays, then having had a month off work to look after me, he'd become frightened of losing his job. Flight Refuelling weren't the best of employers, they're part of the Cobham Group and more interested in their share price than an employee's welfare.
Alan said he was now coming to all my hospital Dr appointments with me. I felt like a naughty schoolgirl.
