"could of told me"

About: York Hospital

Went to ward 22 as told by my gp on Wednesday night and left friday tea time.

had to have 4 bags of blood to get count from 39 to 60 then 2 more to get it to 80 then had small op that went well I hope. staff was mint to me could not fault them until I got nasty head ache Friday night then Saturday got the watery motions.my daughter then told me they only let her in as far as the quite room because she had a baby with her and they was having problems with the norovirus. the hospital was mint apart from not telling us lot in there about the virus as now 3:09 am monday and still feeling crap and me and the baby now have loose motions. did wonder why they let me home as when I went in they said my blood count was 39 and should be between 120-150 but they will let me home when it's 100 with iron tablets and let me go at 80 makes me think they probably think i would catch the virus so let me deal with it at home
