    You mean you're there for 4 weeks indefinitely? Well, I'd kick up a fuss about the WIFI, it's a staple for any hospital stay.

    Get yourself a MiFi hub and a PAYG sim Torch. Or use your phone as a hotspot. If you've got signal of course.

    Had a couple of long stays on hospital wifi and it's worse than the food.

    As said, can you not tether off your phone? Do they let you have laptops and everything?

    I'm guessing most of you haven't tried to get a phone signal in that hospital... It's poor at best.

    It depends on where you are. Down in the belly of the beast like maternity ward (yes I was on SBT while my wife was in Labour don't judge) you've no chance. But after my appendectomy I was in a room with a window and had decent signal.

    Are they calendar weeks or Tim Fisher weeks, Torchy? If it's the latter, you may as well sell your house and move in!

    Chemo is shit. Been feeling like crap and puking for the last five days. Had a few blood transfusions too. Food not bad but my appetite is shot really at the mo. Nightmare in here. Have to piss in bottles. Get woken at 2am for blood pressure and stuff. Hooked up to an IV most of the time so i have wheel that when i go to the toilet. Oh, and every day seems like a hundred years.

    Was wondering about you, Torch, you hadn't been on for a few days...keep strong, brother, through every adversity is redemption, and through the darkest of days that fire within still burns bright, with the strength of the human spirit and soul.

    God bless, you'll be in my prayers again tonight. Take care, mate.

    This sounds shit pal. To cheer you up I have arranged for Juggy to come every day and debate all things Sky Blues.

    Stick in there

    Keep at it torch. If it gets really bad we'll see if we can get the players to make a hospital visit!
