Gone to a higher ward

I went to visit Auntie Maud yesterday. Had an 'Euerrch' moment when, walking down the ward, I realised she wasn't in her bed. 'She's died - or gone to a higher ward!' But when I got there her name was still on the bedside cabinet. A gentleman visitor at the next bed said, 'She's gone to hospital, hasn't she?'
'Yes,' the lady in the bed said. 'She could be gone some time.'

I hope she's back by this afternoon.

Postscript
I'd changed and had just picked up my car keys to go to see Auntie Maud when the phone rang. It was Gina, Auntie Maud's daughter, saying she'd been moved to a different hospital. Her scan results came back this morning and they confirmed that she has lung cancer and that it's spread to her liver. The doctor said they will do what they can to make her comfortable.

We just got word last nite that a cousin of Dear Hubby's who is like an older sister to him - we're having a surprise 60th birthday for her next Sunday - has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. She's still undergoing more tests to see if it's spread. I haven't seen her since my dad-in-law's funeral in March and I heard from my mom-in-law that Carol has already lost a tremendous amount of weight. It isn't sounding good, is it? You keep Carol in your prayers and I'll be sure tokeep Auntie Maud in mine. (((((HUG)))))
