20 Oct 1942, W J Carrie's wartime diary
Tues Well I was chucked out of hospital last Thursday - I'd been in 3 weeks and a day. I didn't feel quite ready to go but they need the beds badly. I had another blood count on Saturday - good - count up to 3,050,000 and Haemoglobin 70%. Then I had an injection of Parnaemon - a very fine Dutch liver extract stuff so I hope to show excellent results next Monday or so. I have been promised another bottle of Hepetex too so that should do me good. I got an International Red Cross letter form today and have sent it to Jimmie Blair to try and get news of you. I am feeling stronger in myself which is all to the good - my back aches a good deal still, however. Today is Edie's birthday.
It can't be long now Darling All my love. B.
