Poorly Prof


The Prof returned from Norway minus one suitcase and with a tummy bug. Oh the joys of international travel. He wasn't himself last night, and sat quietly in his armchair with Mary licking his  bald spot.
The suitcase had a merry old time travelling on it's own to Sweden before it was returned to London then up to us this morning .Another feather in the cap of British airways.
I'm now on nurse duty.
Lunch on trays, regular drinks, brows mopped, temperatures taken.
I feel like Anna from Downton 
Hey ho

  1. Sounds like Prof will have great care between Mary's bald spot licks and your nursing care . . . Hope he is better soon and that the bug doesn't "travel household."

  2. You have Mary's help with the brow mopping... always good to have a spare tongue around when you need it.

    Stock up on the Dettol, you're not allowed to catch this. xx

  9. When he feels better, change into the Naughty Nurse outfit.
    That will chase away any bad memories of being sick.

  12. tender puppy love... all the best to the prof...

  13. May he feel better soon, although with such tender care, I might be inclined to push it for all it's worth.
    I hope you don't get it.

  18. Don't forget - 'Dad's Army' BBC2 tonight, 8.30. A tonic for Prof and a sure-fire pick-me-up for you too, right?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sorry for the Prof, but how nice to see that the Toothy Terror Terrier has a sweet side!

  20. Poor Prof and you not there to care for him. I hope he doesn't read this post about his bald spot. You're not supposed to notice that.

    2. Oh sorry. If he is like my husband when sick, I feel more sorry for you then. It never fails when traveling that some kind of bug hitches a ride home.

  21. between you and mary, the prof should be better in no time! make him a hot toddy!

    my spouse is also sick with some sort of virus; such a little drama queen!

  22. Poor old Chris! I hope he's feeling better soon.

  23. Give my sympathies and get well wishes to Chris. Looks like Mary is doing her bit to reduce fever.

    2. It is, and it's revolting ! No wonder the Norwegians are a hardy lot.

  25. So - no exuberant compliments for the beautifully artistic pen-holder, then?
    Get well soon, Prof - and please don't share that bug with our John. xx

  26. Good diagnosis, doc. Keep him quiet, with intermittent cooling moisture to the head, for at least a day.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I must watch Downton sometime.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Awww....get well soon Chris.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That extra special gift that comes home with you after every trip.
    Feel better soon Chris.

    cheers, parsnip

  30. Poor Prof. I wonder if you can hire Anna and put your feet up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Suitcase swapped for virus. NOT A GOOD TRADE.

    But lucky Prof that you are an actual nurse. Hope he feels better soon and that you evade the little bugs.

  32. yakult and activia yoghurts. get well Prof

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love is grand! I'm sure he would do the same for you. Partership is a trade off.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Awww ..... I hope he's better soon ... the licking should help ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Poor Prof...and how lucky he is to have his own private nurse...hope he feels better soon.

  38. Keep on licking' Mary, it is good for circulation. We are pulling for the prof here in Pelham, MA. Let's hear it for a mate to care for us.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Here's hoping The Prof is feeling a wee bit better!! I could have rang my friend in Sweden for a look round had I known. Next time! :) Hopefully the shift was decent enough for you!

  40. I love that photo and Mary clearly has good doggy nursing instincts. My poodle will not leave my side or my partners if we are not well. Let's hope Chris is well enough to appreciate your present that you made for him ...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hope he is soon,better, good old Mary at least she isn't pulling his jowls as she does to Winnie ;)

    ReplyDelete
  42. He is so lucky to have you there to fuss over him.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ohh poor Prof! Feel better soon. I'm sure Mary is making you better already. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Air travel is a sure way to pick up a bug. I think plane manufacturers need to re-think their air circulation systems.

  45. Poor Chris! I hope he feels better very soon!

  46. I'm sorry to hear the Prof isn't feeling well! It's an annoyance when the airline lost the luggage, but we must retrieve it! Dogs are so smart. She knew he didn't feel well. Enjoy Valentine's!

  47. Dear Mary giving so much love - animals are the best carers (and you too of course). If only hospitals would allow resident pets I am sure patients would benefit. I hope you will all snuggle up together to watch Call the Midwife tonight - a real tonic.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Well, thank goodness you got the suitcase back. Sometimes they go missing FOREVER, though thankfully that's never happened to me. British Airways is pretty awesome all around.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sorry you have a poorly prof John. Give him our best wishes for a quick recovery. Chicken soup and whisky, but not in the same glass.

  50. I hope the Prof is feeling much better today !
