Anything else?

am submitting this as my Husband passed away on 23rd February 2012 after 8 weeks of mis diagnosis at this hospital, it was only when referred to the RVI he was found to be suffering from teminal lung cancer. One one occasion when suffering from headaches (turned out to be a silent stroke) the ward sister told me ' being in her is enough to give anyone a headache'
