I had Poldark to accompany me while I was on a ironing marathon, but was interrupted by a call from Mum. She called 999 last night and was admitted to hospital. Don't worry she was back home by 6.30am with the advice to go to the GP if she gets any further pain. They thought her severe pain could be a heart attack but thorough tests came back negative. She did inform me that on the way to hospital in the ambulance it stopped and reversed so the driver could rescue an injured owl that they showed to Mum. I don't think they were that concerned about her intolerable pain. She has painkillers which she does not wish to take as they don't agree with her. This is reassuring as it means she cannot be in too much discomfort.
We watched Prometheus this evening and were warned about the gory content. There was plenty. I am rather disturbed as it involved slimy snake/octopus type aliens which liked entering through the mouth and exiting by bursting out a stomach. Rather painful. Sleep well.
