Gilded Cage

Five days in a hospital.

Expecting a visit of a few hours for tests.

I have what I stand up in together with one book and my phone.

The future changes. 2-3 hours becomes 3-4 days. Eventually 5

Trapped.

The more I recover the more trapped I feel.

The room becomes a gilded cage.

I’m there for good reason.

The view makes me want to escape as soon as I can.

The help and support is magnificent!

Checks every 2-3 hours mean no sustained sleep.

The bureaucracy is a nightmare!

Visits are a welcome respite from the monotony of being a slave to the master ‘Intravenous’.

The changing scene of the monsoon arriving becomes a fascination

A camera phone becomes a way of amusing myself and keeping my mind occupied.

This is how I saw those five days within this cage, and the view I had from it.

Next time I visit a hospital for anything I will prepare for all permutations.
