Yeah, I know, I haven't done a post this late in a while, have I? Well, it's because I've been quite busy today. I spent the entire day at the hospital. Don't worry though, it wasn't just because of me. It was also for Nan and Wayne.
Nan had an eye appointment at 10:30 am, at the same hospital I go to for my blood tests. Because of this we planned for both to be done today, that way we would avoid having to go to the same hospital twice in one week. Wayne then had an appointment to do with his ears that was made for him for the same hospital for 1:30 pm today. So, we planned to do Nan's appointment, Sort my blood test, then go for lunch, then go to Wayne's appointment. At least, that's what Mam and Nan thought we could do.
Me: "That wont work."
Mam: "Why not?"
Me: "Nan's is an eye appointment!"
Nan: "What's that got to do with it?"
Me: "I know about times for those things. It will be gone 12 - possibly getting close to 1 - before we're done with your appointment."
Nan: "No, my appointment is 10:30!"
Me: "Trust me!"
Guess what? It was about 12:20 pm when we left the eye department. This meant that it was lucky that the blood clinic is one of those "grab a number" type places, because it was about 12:30 pm when we got there, and about 1:00 pm when we left there. Meaning, we did not - as I had predicted - have time for lunch before Wayne's ear appointment at 1:30 pm.
So, instead, we went for something to eat after Wayne's appointment.
For anyone interested:
Nan has some scarring on her retinas, but they think it's just general wear and tear that you get as you get older. She is, after all, 82 years old now (she was 82 in January).
My test results will take 10 to 14 days to be available to me, unless my iron level has dropped drastically, in which case the doctor will be phoning me in the next couple of days. I expect it will be down a bit though, because the... Erm... Thing the doctor suspects is causing it is currently an issue, if you know what I mean (and, if you don't know what I mean... Tough! I refuse to say it plainer than that on my blog... Or even by e-mail,!)
Wayne is going to be sent an appointment for a hearing test, since it may be possible his hearing - which has never been even close to being all that good - is starting to get a bit worse.
Nan, Mam and Wayne wanted KFC, but I, obviously, did not. There's a Subway right by the KFC though, so I had one of their salad subs, and we ate out by the car because of getting from two different places. I did originally plan to take a packed lunch with me, but Nan - who was paying - insisted on buying lunch for me, even if it meant going elsewhere for the food. So, I gave in. I mean, who am I to turn down a free lunch of my choice? Especially when the person in question wants so badly to buy it that she actually spent three days trying to persuade me not to take a packed lunch, and to let her buy for me. Yeah, it took me that long to give in... What? I'm stubbourn! Didn't you know that? LOL!
So... By the time all the appointments were over, and then we'd eaten, it was gone 3:00 pm. Then we had to get home, I had to sort a few things after I got home (like laundry, feeding the dogs, etc). And then I finally got to the laptop, sorted e-mails, sorted posts on my Dad's forum, and sorted the blogs. And now? Now I want some supper, a milky drink, and my bed!
Enjoy whatever's left of your day! :)
