I had a horribly stress day yesterday; the hospital phoned in the morning to say they had had the results of my urine sample, but wanted it path lab tested not just by the nurse, so could I ask my surgery for some anti-biotics as a prophylactic!! Honestly it totally freaked me out, as I am fine, no infection.
I might as well have asked for gold, they waited till 5:50pm to fax the prescription to the chemist. I had to phone them 3 times to ask for it and then phone the chemist to ask had it arrived. DH went to the chemist and waited to get it as it arrived!! The hospital phoned me 3 times!! If I didn't have it my op would have been cancelled. I was a nervous wreck! We were in Southwold when they first phoned enjoying a coffee just about to have a walk along the front, so we walked after we got home and had been to the surgery straight away, to make sure they had had the fax about the anti-biotics. I didn't have to explain to the receptionist, because I think if she had queried it, I would have burst into tears, fortunately the fax explained it all.
It was a lovely walk, across the fields which is out across the road from our house, the leaves were golden in the afternoon sun. Nell loved it, running free.. she is still has fleas from the kennels we think. We've had the stronger treatment from the vet and she is banned from upstairs, clean bedding every day and in the kitchen at night. Dino (Dyson) stands guard by the door to keep her in the kitchen at night. She is afraid of the dyson!
I am looking up an independent GP I can't be doing this all the time, apart from that I didn't want any more anti-biotics I feel my body has had enough of everything. I must have had at least 100 x-rays over these
2 1/2 years, plus ultra sound treatment, CT scans and MRI plus 3 ops.. so enough is enough. I am going privately if I can find a female one. There were 2 in Billericay.. and this op had better work. I am fed up!!! I can hardly use my arm after this last op, much too painful.
So that was my miserable day, I was weepy all afternoon!
This morning when I checked my phone, the hospital had phoned at 8:05, don't they realise I am retired, I get up when I wake and then shower, sometimes it's gone 9:00am.. and I don't keep my phone beside my bed! I suppose they are covering all the bases, but the whole thing freaked me out. So my op. is booked for Thursday 2nd Nov.

My op was cancelled because last evening I developed a UTI, I am screaming inside, but I now I can have a go at my CAL blanket. I am to be phoned in two weeks time and as long as everything is clear I shall have my op then. The surgeon was very nice and appreciated my feelings of disappointment. I was hoping to be really using my arm by Christmas.

I have been able to do some more of my 'Sunshine and Showers' CAL blanket.. I did frog the 'puffs' twice. I wasn't happy with them and also the turquoise colour either side of the puffs, because although I followed the pattern exactly, it didn't look like her sample. So I did it till I was happy with the look. It is growing very slowly and as I am back into hospital this Thursday for the surgery all over again, I doubt I 'll be doing a lot after it. I shall try, but it isn't easy if every movement is painful.
