Hi folks, I've just emerged from another of life's unpleasant little experiences and one, may I add, where I found myself thinking of Caroline and understanding just how she must have felt over the incident with the fishbone. 

I had the misfortune to be using a fairly new toothbrush when the bristles suddenly began to break up in my mouth, the majority of which I managed to retrieve.  Unfortunately for me, one or two rogue bristles managed to work themselves to the back of my throat and became lodged  and no amount of trying would make them budge.  This happened on Thursday and even though it was uncomfortable, I thought that they would eventually work themselves out naturally.  However, this didn't happen and I had a very uncomfortable and painful weekend, choking and coughing with my throat becoming progressively more sore and inflamed.  On Monday I phoned my GP and was told to go to the A&E Dept of our local hospital where we waited for 3 hours and was eventually seen by a Doctor who had all the charm of a soggy cucumber sandwich and who told me he couldn't see anything foreign in my throat and didn't have the equipment to investigate further.  OH HOW I LONGED FOR DWIGHT TO COME RIDING TO MY RESCUE WITH AN OLD SILVER TEASPOON,  A PAIR OF TWEEZERS AND A CANDLE!!!!

I was then booked in to a ward at another hospital for the following day, where we waited to see a specialist doctor, not as handsome or charming as Dwight by any means, but whose calm and friendly bedside manner put me at my ease whilst  he gave me the dubiously delightful experience of pushing a scope up my nose and down my throat to investigate for the offending culprit.  Luckily, the bristle dislodged and I was not faced with the prospect of surgery to remove it, as I had been warned previously might be the case, but I was left with an extremely sore and inflamed throat, which they said will take a few days to heal.

Caroline and I have much in common now, but how lucky was she to have the handsome Dr Dwight Enys in attendance, which must have done much to help make the unpleasant experience easier to bear.  My helpful doctor was short, dark and fairly handsome, spoke with a greek accent and in common with Dwight, was very kind and understanding.  So all in all, I can't complain ... well done NHS and thank you most kindly, Dwight Enys would be proud of you!!
