7th-28th May 1947: in Kingston hospital - sudden illness

Note from this blog's editor: we've been following Fred's fortunes since 31 Dec 1940, through war and peace, through the blitz and a bomb-damaged home. I believe this is the first time in those getting on for 7 years that Fred has missed recording a day in his notebook-diaries. We record these next few entries exactly as he wrote them, when he omitted all but his admission and discharge from hospital, after a day when he was 'Very unwell'.

The change in the colour of the ink is exactly how the notebook looks now.
7 Wed. Very unwell.

8 Thur. To Kingston Hospital with pneumonia.

26 Whit Monday. Discharged from Kingston Hospital.

Tues. Fine, some nice sunshine. Gwennie & Laurie called also Cousin Maud. Played the Pathetic Sonata.

28 Wed. Fine warm sunny day. To the nearest fish shop. Gwennie & Laurie called with them came Josette & Carole Winsley. The doctor called & prescribed some medicine which I called for in the afternoon.
