In­ter­nally grate­ful

Lennox Herald - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Stu­art McWil­liam, Lomond Court, West Brid­gend, Dum­bar­ton

Pic­tures taken of me in­ter­nally, In the suite of en­doscopy. I ap­proached with fear and in trep­i­da­tion. Un­til they sprayed my throat with se­da­tion. A friendly team of nurses, Claire, Dawn, Mag­gie, Jenny, Lorna Pre­pared me to re­ceive the cam­era. In­serted with del­i­cate pre­ci­sion, Pro­cee­dure done with­out in­ci­sion. Wait­ing time caused fear and doubt, Em­bar­rass­ing mo­ment tak­ing my den­tures out. My head was north, my feet were south, I felt a bit down in the mouth. I’m thank­ful for the throat spray coat­ing, Not so much the air in­jec­tion, Caus­ing a bit of bloat­ing, Thank you nurses for sheer per­fec­tion. So thanks to staff one and all, At the Vale of Leven Hospi­tal. Politi­cians hear me clear and loud, Of my lo­cal NHS I am so proud. When it comes to mak­ing de­ci­sions, Come to your senses. Pub­lic and hos­pi­tals first, By cut­ting back on MPs’ ex­penses. Do a ref­er­en­dum and sur­prise us.
