Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Yesterday I walked to my local hospital for a small op (Day surgery) which was delayed for an hour as the printer was not working - surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses etc all held up cos the printers did not give them the paperwork they needed!

So those of us who arrived at 6.30 for the 7am ops waited. I normally get to bed around 2, sometimes later (the previous night at 4am) so I had gone to bed around 10pm (soooo early) I'm not an early bird so it was interesting to see the folks entering & leaving the 24 hour gym & the other folks out at that ungodly hour.

I was up & walking around well before 11am when my friend collected me. Small scar, no pain, but it could be a pre-cancer (9 out of 10 are ok, but...) I would have preferred 99 out of 100, or even 999 out of 1000.

I'll be seeing the surgeon on Monday, but he is unlikely to get the pathology results until after Christmas. At the moment I'm not worried, but I'm very good at getting worried at later dates & the holiday season is never my favourite time as my normal events shut down (craft groups, & other regular events) & everyone has family around & I'm one of those without family mentioned by Nigel. But I do have friend, even tho some will be away on their summer holidays others are around.

And Mudcat is always here
