It's three times now that I've seen the apparition and I'm convinced it is real. It happened about this time in the morning when I first came back to the ward. A white haired gentleman suddenly popped his head round the wall which divides my space from next door's. He was wearing a dog collar. He waved cheerily, and was gone. It's happened twice since - just a fleeting smiling lurch into my room. I guess it's the church in action; very fast action.
One other thing that's funny and I must tell you is that my epidural pump operates every few minutes and makes a tiny teeny noise just like a kitten mewing.
