Apparently the trip to Dublin was a bit long, as the ambulance had to pit-stop in Cashel for a replacement Morphine pump. One can imagine the cursing from the back of the Ambulance.
The news from St. Vincents is that he was moved up purely for observation (his liver). Maurice isn’t complaining though, as he now has a bed that is controlled by loads of buttons, which is apparently worthy of being called a hospital bed. He is looking far better than he did at the start of the week.
