Well I had the date for me knee operation, which if you read my posts, you would have known it was to be in the morning.
I had a phone call just after lunch today informing me that my consultant had had to cancel, I don’t know if I was relieved or upset. I’ve been up since half past two this morning panicking, poor Granddad Al was getting his head bit off every time he spoke to me, with a swift apology following it.
I went for my MRSA & pre-op on Monday & everything was fine with that. I’m having it done in a small hospital & it seems some of the nurses have called in sick & no agency nurses of the right level couldn’t be hired in time.
Then within the hour the hospital was back onto me telling me they have re-booked me for next Friday, I have to be in for 11am, with the Arthrosopy & the repair to a tear in my meniscus, taking place at noon. So another whole week to panic!
But it does mean I can take Mum out on her 83rd birthday for a nice meal. So a silver lining after all.
Have you had anything cancelled at the last minute that you was either dreading or looking forward to?
