So in case I left you hangin' there. Let me assure you that The Old Man trudged back to his GP and explained about the dilemma of where he should get his drugs.
He also explained that being dried out like a prune left him feeling really woozy with low blood pressure.
The GP rolled his eyes at the verdicts of Hospital Folk when it comes to who's in charge of prescriptions.
And sweet as a lamb, took over the job.
Between them - GP and the Old Man are working out a new regime, and for now - The Old Man is relieved.
