I’m glad to read that Philip sounds like Philip. That’s a good sign IMO. Hopefully he can go home soon.

Edward VII, gourmand extraordinaire, would definitely approve.

Yes it is a good sign. Just did a quick check on the links above and I learned that he's on a first name basis with the Royal Patron for Edward VII hospital-his wife as well as the President-his wife's cousin Edward.

Edward of Kent isn't only the Queen's cousin but also Philip's. The Kents are the Queen's first cousins and Philip's first cousins once removed as their mother was his first cousin.

Yum! I wouldn’t want to get sick just to sample the gourmet menus, but as long as you’re going to be sick, might as well do it in style, lol. Seriously, I think that’s fantastic. Patients need to eat to keep up their strength - much better this for that purpose than the usual lousy meals

.. an infection is what most old people dye of - so it is very concerning in a person his age. That is why he is in hospital.

Thank you for the reminder about the BRF's family connections ILuvBertie.

As an nurse, I'm very concerned for him. Everytime I see his name pop up on my news feed I get palpitations thinking the inevitable has happened.

Yes me too, I worked with the elderly several years in a health care facility, my youngest daughter is a RN at a large hospital. Infections, seemingly routine ones, can change quickly into life threatening. So I am a bit nervous for him still being in hospital.

It's a very small hospital, though, which probably reduces the risk of cross-infection dramatically, and given the current climate it's probably not too likely they'd have him in the hospital unless he both absolutely needed to be there and it was something they could treat. I feel like he's in the right place, and the fact he quite vocally, "usual-Philip" does not want to be there seems to be an even better sign. IMHO.

The King Edward VII's Hospital has a long association with the royal family ,the late Princess Margaret, the queen mother and and also the Duchess of Cambridge.

The Duchess of Cornwall had surgery there a few years after she married the PoW. But I didn't know about Kate....

She was treated there for Hyperemesis gravidarum in December 2012 when she was pregnant with George.

Its not a matter of cross infection, which yes hopefully hopefully a smaller private hospital would have a better chance of reducing.

Unfortunately infections (which Philip is suffering from) are far more dangerous and unpredictable in seniors (as well as people with immune compromised health or very young children). Its more common for an infection to lead to things like sepsis or pneumonia.

I dont work with seniors but I do work with small children. And yes even a minor infection in someone like Prince Philip at his age raises concern for me when ever I hear him hospitalized.

Sounds like a pretty serious infection. Perhaps it is resistant to antibiotics?

I'm sure the duke is being well looked after at the King Edward VII's Hospital but that he is really looking forward to getting out!
