This is one of my favorite cat pictures. What cuddlers they are!
I'm here to tell you about my Monday day at the hospital. It was most exciting because I planned to ride the bus. It was cold as could be with winds blowing like mad. No bus running due to Veteran's Day, no daughter-in-law to drive me, they were having the day off too. No one at home at my neighbor's house, Dee was working, so I kept trudging along, found someone at the library and asked for a ride (you get nervy when you get old) and the lady cheerfully gave me a ride to the hospital.
So I am there, get registered, am directed to sit in a lovely livingroom like waiting area. At 11 am I am taken to a hospital room where I get kitted out for the surgery table. Then a young man comes in,
and starts asking me questions. In retrospect, I think they mostly want to know if you have all your marbles (and I do!) He leaves, then comes back and takes me into the surgery room. My favorite Doc is there and talks to me for a while, the the young man gives me multi meds (knock out stuff) and I nicely doze off. I wake up in the same room, everyone says we are finished and all went well. They take me back to the first room, I get into my street clothes, the young nurse tells me she will call my ride for me and I said make it a Taxi please. She gave me an appointment with my Doctor for a week away where we will share information and I was picked up and home by 2 pm. Very efficient group of people!
So no information yet, but just thought you might like a few details . . .did you? I can tell you this, despite the efficiency and the pleasant group of people employed at the hospital, it will take a long time to talk me back into one of these things. Why? Oh, you who have had this know, don't you. You are forced to drink a gallon of horrible fluid which will clean out your system totally. Arrgh! If someone would re-invent a way to do this that wouldn't involve the fluid, people would be lined up to have this procedure!
