For those who may not be able to open the link I'll put the main post here. Also, if anyone knows David Delarre, from Mawkin, could they let him know, as his Mum is Diane's best friend.

        
PostPosted: Tue Nov 15, 2011 7:51 pm    Post subject: Regular poster here seriously ill: Diane Easby         Reply with quote

"I am posting this to let people know that on last Saturday evening, 12th Nov. I arrived at Diane Easby's house to discover that she had collapsed, and had been unable to get up. It is likely that she had been lying there for up to 48 hours, unable to reach her house phone and unable to use her mobile which had been stolen some weeks before.

I was visiting her at the end of an England tour and I am now back in Iceland. The ambulance staff who took her to hospital took both my English and Icelandic phone numbers and said that the hospital would call me to update me on her condition. As of now, I've heard nothing and I do not know which hospital she has been taken to.

I know very little about Diane's social circle or family contacts and am therefore not in a position to let people know what has happened. Given the state I found her in, it is also quite possible that Diane has not been able to inform people either."

I checked with Ian before posting this and he gave me the go ahead to put the word out just in case there are people on here who know her and who can help her in any way.

Re Diane's cats, unless she has gone home or managed to contact someone to give them a key (in my view fairly unlikely), the cats are currently fending for themselves. Their plates were empty when I was there on Saturday, but as Diane had probably been out of action for 48 hours or more, I reckon they will have already started fending for themselves. They have a flap and there was no sign of them while I was there.

I have still heard nothing from the health professionals, who have my numbers and I don't know which hospital she was taken to. If anybody can track that down I'd be very glad to know. I can be contacted via Facebook.

As far as I remember (I have been there, but it was a few years ago) her house is on or near Green Lanes in North London.

We need a posting from somebody who actually knows where she is and how she is - guesswork won't help much.

Same thing happened to Jim Johnstone the Scottish accordionist a few years ago. He was luckyt o survive.

The cats will check in looking for food in the old home, so if some food bowls are left for them near the catflap they'll be waiting for Diane when she gets back home.

I have just phoned North Middlesex Hospital. Diane is the Oncology Ward, and is lucid and would appreciate a visit. (I spoke to a very helpful bloke with an Indian accent, didn't get his name).

Seems her main worry is her cats. I'm only here in London for a week so I can't realistically take that on. Can anybody here drop in to feed them?

I have just spoken to them. They need to speak to Diane personally, perhaps via a Nurse, and then, they will arrange a foster home to care for her cats until she is able to go home and care for them herself.

Can someone please arrange this if they are going to visit Diane?
