Re: Calling all parents

You're totally focussed only on your experience. For my experience: I personally did not stay on the maternity ward the whole time for four days: I didn't need to. Going downstairs to get coffee wasn't a problem and I was actively encouraged to do so by the midwives in order to take a break. Going a...

Re: Calling all parents

You're totally missing the point here and focussed only on your experience. You were in for a day. My other half was in for four days, Dan and his partner were in for 9 days. Should they be providing my meals for the duration? Which meals? For the whole ward? For each maternity unit in the country? ...

Re: Calling all parents

Oh and lets not forget that to go in "search of food and drink" is down two flights of stairs to the cafe or vending machine should the former be closed.....

Now you seem to be doing a hatty and ignoring what's said to you, so good day to you.

Re: Calling all parents

I think it is an either/or. There's only so much space in a hospital for beds. I'd rather on a maternity ward they dedicated that space to new mums. I'd rather they didn't spend budget on free drinks for Dads compared to all the other things they could spend money on to assist with ensuring that th...

Re: Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 24 Nov 2018, KO 15:00

Let me tell you about Preston fans. The Chinese have the best Preston fans. If we did Preston fans like the Chinese Preston fans, our Preston fans would be really something. People ask me about our Preston fans, and say "how do you get the Preton fans blades turning so fast?". I just laugh, but I te...

Re: Calling all parents

You were at Stepping Hill right? I thought they were all ace while we were there. And no qualms at all about sleeping in a chair or paying for a coffee. Beds for the new mums, innit.

Leutweiller too. I thought he did a great job when called on.
I couldn’t spell his name so that’s why I left him out :)

Re: Calling all parents

Yeah I'm well aware of it, just the timescales that are the problem. He's 15 months now, can sleep for maybe three hours max before waking in pain; not sure I can last another five months.... Though also sometimes its a temper tantrum which Mum can't distinguish between; and I'm obviously evil every...

Re: Calling all parents

Congrats RTT, best of luck to you all! Not to hijack the thread (again) but my own little girl was born on 30th October, and managed to give us an exhausting 9 day stay in hospital in the process. She's amazing, but I hope you're getting a bit more sleep than we are! She's picked up an annoying hab...

Re: Calling all parents

If only it was just the first few months. My little boy has chronic ear infections and now confirmed glue ear. Had five courses of abtibiotics since August. He wakes five or six times most nights and can't sleep without calpol. Earliest referral appointment is March next year..... :|

Re: Where are they now?

Full Members Cup. My first visit to Wembley. With Hendry listed as playing up front.... Can't actually remember whether he did mind, bit too young and a long time ago!
