I went to the doctor's again yesterday. I was scheduled to actually see her nurse practitioner but was soon switched over to the other side of the office and had to see the doctor. I guess I had questions that the nurse couldn't or wouldn't answer. Like, was I still going to be approved for surgery. Like, what was happening with my kidneys and why wasn't I told.
Of course, I remained cool, calm and collected. It is better that way. The doctor would not approve me for surgery. And yes, there is problems with my hemoglobin and kidneys that need to be cleared up. I think she waited until she got the cardiologist's report before she made that decision. So now I have to have a gastroscopy and and a colonoscopy to see where I am losing blood...I don't think I am but obviously they do. So next Tuesday that is on my agenda. Today I had an echo-cardiogram ..by the time they are finished they will know me inside and out!
After I went to the doctor's I stopped by my apartment and actually had to lay down for a while. I was exhausted. I was out like a light.
I know it wasn't for long because I was watching a recording of Joel Osteen and it was still on when I woke. Maybe twenty minutes. But when I looked out my balcony door the scene had changed....a big storm had started. I thought about just waiting a couple hours before heading back to my daughter's but then I thought that maybe it would get worse...so I headed out right away.
On the way back the weather seemed to clear up but there sure was a lot of water on the road. At one point almost all the road was covered and luckily the car ahead of me saw it and slowed and we were able to drive around it on the other side of the road.
So I reach my daughter's house and this is what I saw....
this gazebo was set up just before
my daughter left on vacation...they were
so proud of it and it looked quite cute sitting there with four chairs and a table with a potted plant on it. She also had hung the Chinese lanterns that we bought at the Christmas tree shop. Of course, I hated to call them and ruin their vacation...especially since this was their last day...but I thought it better than for them to come home to a nasty surprise.
The gazebo had been staked down but with all the rain we have been having the stakes didn't or couldn't grip the soil good enough. She asked me to just put the chairs in the garage and they would do the rest when they get home tomorrow night.
I will be glad to get back home. It has been nice getting away from the apartment...but having pets..is a great responsibility...especially a puppy.
Well the sun is back out now...maybe I will sit on the deck for a while. Have a great afternoon!
