An Emergency Department View

Dear friends thank you, for all of your kind well wishes, they are sincerely appreciated, and warm my heart. I’m up in the wards now, and I’m recovering well. Oh, the nurses thought I was crazy, having a good laugh at me taking photos of my Emergency Department room.

Snugly comfortable and relieved

I’m taking photos from bed

Of where I might be

The white ceiling, my clear blue sky

Walls are pastures, giving me life

The floor is my way to oceans beyond

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

      1. It’s good, foods ok, the views good, plenty of writing, but I don’t think their any good, the nurses are kind, they like my humour, I’m in my element, and….. πŸ˜† whoops I’m hallucinating againπŸ™„πŸ™ƒ

    1. Super bad headaches,, it’s seems its a bacteria bug in my head, that’s life unbearable for 5 days. They are trying to identify the bacteria, and then treat it with the correct antibiotic. I’m reasonably ok at the moment, thanks mate. Hope you’re having a great time up there, cheers 🍻


  1. Oh, so very sorry you landed there! 😦
    But, happy you are getting great care! πŸ™‚
    And love that you are still poem-ing of the ocean and sky πŸ™‚
    For soon you will be well
    And will tell
    The nice hospital-people “Bye!” πŸ˜€

  2. Here I am, a week behind the world, just now finding out you are in the hospital. Some friend I am. I’m going to go backwards and see how this all started. I have few people online I can call a good friend, and you are one of them. Hope all is getting better day by day.

    1. H Claudia, it’s 2.45am here I’ve just been woken up, by a my floor level’s fire alert announcement, turns out some selfish idiot was having a smoke. Anyhow I’m going ok, they are getting to the bottom of the the problem, yeah, it’s been the worse pain every, I’ll know more in the morning. I’ve had bacteria bug in my brain, and they have been trying to define the exact type of bacteria, so they can zap with the correct antibiotic. 😊 😊 ❀️


      1. Yep, I’ve just posted a poem from here. More blood test have just been taken and it’s 10.15am here, so going home today is getting dim. ☺️


  3. I’m so sorry you’re in the hospital but glad they’re getting to the bottom of things. Glad the brain bug doesn’t seem to be infecting your writing…sending healing thoughts your way! Be nice to the nurses! ❀️
