At the Royal Free…

By reasons too compilicated to explain, I went to the Royal Free at 11am on Monday (my foot was swollen…)…
And that is where M works.
As l waited for blood test, deep vein thrombosis scan, blood test etc, I intermittently emailed him, and finally spoke to him…
My oldest friend, and I hadn’t seen him since 2013…
He just had a meeting to go to…
It was exactly the same when he was 15: I’d end up talking to his mother, because he was on the phone…
At 5pm I was released – and told, in answer to the swelling, that *feet just become frozen* …
I went on my way.
After 6 hours in the Royal Free, I abandoned ship…
Now Kevin Murphy will have to be my best friend.

I had a stroke on July 26th, 2013. I was a screenwriter. Don’t do that anymore. But have found another way to write.
