Sweet Memories

A Memory of Alton

i was in the hospital as a patient for nearly two years, as a six year old boy, i had quite a good time considering i was far from home(portsmouth),the nursing staff were brillient,how they put up with us boys god knows,our schooling was good fun as well,i will always remember nurse johns bless her, she had so much time for everyone,and could draw great pictures on the blackboard,i had weights hanging from my leg for most of the time, to stretch my leg, it worked, thanks to the time and help from all the staff,sunday dinner was magic.ice cream and chocolate yummy,i recall one xmas there was a massive snow storm, we were told no one could get though for visits,my mum and dad did,i had so many toys my parents dished them all out to the other lads whose parents couldent make it thy were so chuffed,at night the nurses all came round singing carols for us all ,such sweet memories of a wonderful hospital bless them all.
