Theย Expat Eagle’s Verdict

Unfortunately, I was in the hospital recovering from emergency surgery so I missed the game.

A big thank you to everyone who sent me get well messages via social media, it meant a lot! A big thank also goes to the nurses, doctors and surgeons at Helsingborgs Sjukhuset who took care of me and were fantastic throughout.

Interestingly, apart from the ER doctor who admitted me and the anaethatist,ย the rest of the staff, including surgeon assistant surgeon and porters, were all women. Who needs men these days? ๐Ÿ™‚

Verdict:ย I can’t comment on what I haven’t seen.
