My daughter is a committed vegan - it never ceases to amaze me how
many foodstuffs contain animal products. However she admits that she faces difficulties when it comes to footwear. She is a new police con stable and obviously needs hardwearing protective footwear so does she go for pvc fake leather or leather-which is worse for the environment? And for her ethical and moral beliefs. Admittedly in this society we are lucky we can make the choice.

You can buy Vegan shoes,I believe Palm leaves are one source of fibre they can use.

Thank you both for your best wishes.I am now back home.
At 4 AM on Jan 2nd I was about to let the dog back in after she had a pee I went to open the door and the next thing I can remember was waking up in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor with my wife calling for an ambulance.
They took me to A&E where they stitched up my head gave me a cat scan on my head and Xrayed my chest the results were I have a few cracked ribs and some broken bones in my cheek and around my eye socket.
While I was in the A&E dept waiting for a bed to be available,as they wanted to keep me in to try and discover why I blacked out,I caught the Norovirus hence the isolation ward.
They wouldn't release me till 72 hours after the virus had run its course.
The house doctor came to see me last Wednesday evening to tell me I could go home but asked me what the results of the tests were to identify why I blacked out,"what tests " I replied, I was supposed to have an echocardiogram an ECG and some blood tests,he was mortified that nobody had seen me since the initial visit to A&E and wouldn't let me leave till he had discussed my case with a consultant and arranged some follow up tests.
The test still haven't been done but he allowed me to be discharged yesterday on the understanding I would see my GP to sort it out.
I can't get an appointment with my GP till the end of January but I do have an appointment with,I think he is called a facial maxillo consultant, tomorrow so far no investigation as to why I blacked out.

saxo1..so sorry to hear about your accident. I have to say that I cannot believe they let you go home without finding out the reason for your sudden collapse?
It could happen again at any time and going by what you say they had 3 days to do the appropriate tests.

I hope you get seen soon and your recovery is swift.

To be honest I feel perfect and in hindsight I have to see the funny side of my stay in hospital.
When they put me in the isolation side ward it transpired that most of the patients had Altzheimers on that level,my sons said they arranged it so that I could get a preview of what's to come.
When I had the bug I was hooked up to a saline drip that was plugged into my arm and oxygen tubes up my nose.
the saline drip had a tube app 2m long but the cable powering it was the opposite side of the bed to the drip tripod,no problem you say,the thing was the toilet door was app 6m away but the lead was only about 5m long so in order to be able to get to the loo I had to crawl over the bed unplug the Drip and the drag the tripod across to the toilet.
I'll leave it to you to guess what the outcome of that was!
There was a television on the wall but no remote and the manual controls were a tiny rotary switch underneath that you could't see,I had a bedside light that had no bulb in it till the day I was discharged.
On the plus side the food was good and all the staff were excellent.
My friend went in on Friday for his first session of Chemotherapy app 2/3 of the way through he collapsed and lost control of everything,bowels/bladder the lot,they rushed him into A&E and revived him and discharged him today so in the grand scheme of things I am grateful that I only suffered what amounts to some relatively minor injuries and a stomach bug that is now sorted.

I like your positive spin on things. That will ensure a quick recovery

I can relate to being "hooked up". I had an operation a few years ago and had a drip hooked up and a drain into the side of my neck after thyroid removal.Also a bunch of big metal staples across my throat area. I couldn't stay in bed so walked all around the hospital to the dismay of the nurses and doctors.
I had the drip hooked on to a three wheeled stand and the drain bottle in my dressing gown pocket.
It gave me a clear path when walking about as everyone moved out of my way..must have looked a scary sight!

I hope you make a full recovery Saxo, but geez!!! It's blooming dangerous going into hospitals. I have left instructions with my wife that they are only allowed to take me to hospital if I am already at deaths door. If I can speak and move I'll be better off at home, thanks .
