Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
My friend is doing surprisingly well. On Wednesday the orthopedist replaced the hospital cast with a shorter, lighter one. He wants to see her again in two weeks. She scheduled that next appointment without consulting me even though I was in the waiting room. She knew the first appointment was at an inconvenient time for me, but since I knew someone at the hospital had scheduled it, I cancelled my plans to accommodate her. Unfortunately, she scheduled the next one for the same time and day of the week, interfering with the same two things on my schedule. When she told me, I said, "What? Why didn't you ask if that time was all right with me?" She said, "Maybe my neighbor can drive me." I told her if her neighbor couldn't, I want her to change the appointment to Thursday when I can be free at any time. I talked to her tonight (Friday) and she hasn't talked to the neighbor or changed her appointment (which she couldn't have done on yesterday's Thanksgiving holiday) yet. Of course I will drive her even if I have to cancel my plans again, but I won't be happy! Someone just nominate me for the Selfish Award!

JennieG, I found another shirt for my friend and a sweatshirt with a long top that buttons, and she found that she could get into one heavy winter jacket.
