Staying alive

So happy that I am able to get the emergency treatment I needed at a local hospital in the middle of the French countryside. Despite COVID spreading like wild fire across France and now reaching our little town the health service is still able to help people coming into to A & E and set up meetings with specialist consultants.

I have seen my border line asthma jump into chronic asthma over the last 3 weeks and ended up with being nearly unable to breathe the first time and the second passing out from lack of oxygen. Going to A& E as I was triaged within 10 minutes followed by immediately going to an A& E bed and getting drips and oxygen. Amazing how well the system is coping and looking forward to seeing the Respiratory specialist consultant there 3 weeks after being referred.

What always makes me feel that humanity is caring, collective and hopeful as well as greedy, brutal and competitive is that where ever I have been hospitals and the public health workers are wonderful, caring, attentive, professional and usually have great team spirit and comradeship. They are an exemplar and hope for the world. Thanks
