“I never thought of that.’ Thank you Nelly, Now give me that bedpan before I mess the sheets in this bed here.’

“Nelly pulled the screen around her then left her to it.’

The physical effort it took to lift herself onto the bedpan was excruciating and then it was made worse when she couldn’t go. She sat and sat until she had a red ring around her bottom.

When Nelly returned she told her that she couldn’t go.’

“Ah you will need some help; give me a moment.

Albert stood up and asked if everything was alright as he’d been sat outside nearly half an hour.

“Don’t you trouble yourself now, your wife is going to be just fine.’

Nelly went to see the Sister. Who then said “it looks like we are going to have to give her a suppository.’

 Both the Sister and Nurse Hepple came to help Laura off the bedpan. They turned her gently on her side to administer the enema. Now this should loosen you up inside. It won’t take long and it will be a little uncomfortable as you have some dried blood in there. The Sister put on a pair of disposable gloves then lubricated her fingers before shoving the bullet sized pill up inside her anal passage.

“Keep breathing.’ urged the nurse as the sister went about the job.

They then sat her back up and made her comfortable before pulling back the screens. They left the bedpan handy on top of her bedside trolley then asked her to just push the button on the wall and they would come and help her.

Albert was allowed in after that and he asked her if she was alright.’

Yes, Albert I’m alright, I couldn’t use the toilet so they have given me something. He gave her the bunch of flowers that he’d picked that morning.’ Those are nice Albert thank you.’

“I had a good talk with Nurse Hepple this morning; do you know she has nine kids and had to have a hysterectomy to stop her husband getting her pregnant.’

“That was a bit insensitive of her to mention the fact she’s got nine kids when you’ve just lost our child.’

“She was telling me that there are agencies all over the country who are looking for couples like us to adopt a little one.’

“But it would not be our child Laura.’

“I would love it no less than if it were my own child. Now don’t upset me Albert, my mind is made up.’

“Alright love if that’s what you want.’

“This is for both of us Albert not just for me.’

“He knew what Laura was like once she got an idea into her head.’

“Have you eaten anything yet?’

“No I haven’t; I couldn’t eat anything. Have you?’
