A brief update on my physical state
The surgery went well - I woke up from it etc. Leg & chest hurt intermittently. Coughing not pleasant. Sneezing - aaaargh! Getting both rest and exercise as instructed. (If you really want to annoy me, send a message telling me "You must reeeest.") Follow-u...

A uninterrupted sleep and then "all systems go"
Last evening I was moved to a side room in another ward. I was able to shut the door and sleep without interruption for seven and a half hours, waking up without having to struggle with grumpiness half the morning. Which was nice. Now it is "all systems go....

Being edified by hospital, gulping pills, and disconnecting from the drone
A mild December morning here in hospital land and all is well. It is the first time I have been an inpatient in a hospital and the experience is helping me to understand a bit more of how a hospital ward works. The crossover and co-operation between all lev...

Sir Roger Gale MP's sound words on Sunday Trading

Chasuble development examples in the V&A
The other day, I spent a while in the Victoria and Albert Museum, a wonderful collection that never fails to fascinate. I noticed that there are several examples of chasubles made in the 15th century that were later altered in the 17th century. The notes on...

A good day to arrive at St Thomas's hospital
Above is a good "My View for a While" photo, to use an expression coined by Fr Z . I'm on the 7th floor of St Thomas's hospital, opposite the Palace of Westminster. I arrived here yesterday on the feast of St Thomas of Canterbury, after whom the hospital is...

Serco turkey at the CCU
Since Wednesday, I have been on the shiny, hi-tec Cardiac Care Unit. I got taken down for the angiogram yesterday morning. The process bore more than a passing resemblance in my mind to a scene in a Jason Bourne film. The warehouse-like antechamber was in s...

Liberated from the Mindray
Today is Liberation Day. When I came onto the ward, I was connected by five leads to a machine that displays a moving graph and numbers for ECG, oxygen saturation, non-invasive blood pressure and respiration. Yesterday, in everyday language, that started "p...

A Minor Cardiac Episode and my view for a while
Claud Cockburn won a competition with colleagues at the Times for the most accurate yet boring headline "Small Earthquake in Chile, not many Dead." I am reminded of this when trying to calm friends and family down over what happened to me in the wee small h...

Plenary indulgences and Masses for the Holy Souls
As the month of November is fast approaching, it is good for us to remember the generosity of the Church at this time - indeed the great mercy that is shown to our departed brothers and sisters. There are two plenary indulgences that we should all try to ga...
