Jane is still drinking despite recovering from a serious but unnecessary and botched operation to her abdomen. She was ill before she started a mini-binge. She has now started a another mini-binge which is becoming a maxi-binge. Jane has an appointment to see a nurse tomorrow to ascertain if her operation wound (a 10-12 inch scar) is healing OK and in the not too distant future she has to have a medical examination for her employer. At the rate she is going at she may not even make the employer's examination. She will certainly miss tomorrow's.
She looks a wreck. Her bruising on her head (due to falling over several times onto the hard floor) has gone down but her left eye is badly bruised. That won't go away in a hurry. Things aren't looking good. I mentioned this to her this morning when I took some food in (I gave her a toasted cheese sandwich for breakfast). She looked totally unconcerned about the medicals. She is definitely still drinking and it could be a ten day binge that will probably lead to hospitalisation. She may go back to the hospital that conducted the botched operation for appendicitis.
I was going to say that it goes from bad to worse. But actually it never could get worse.
