I had a little cry that day in the waiting room.
Anyway, today - here I am, writing this LIVE from the same hospital. I'm here with my mum while she has some routine scan done for her back fractures. We've been here since 11.15 and we're due to leave at 2.30pm
Got to admit, we weren't looking forward to spending half the day in the hospital, but....wow! What a pleasant time we've had! The coffee was excellent in the cafe, and we had a delicious (and cheap!) lunch in the hospital's restaurant - fish and chips for mum, curry for me (in the hope that it will make the india visas come quicker). We even spent money in the cancer shop - (I bought a woolly hat) and now, here I am with Internet access too - I'm able to write and publish a blog whilst she gets her scan done!
AND thanks to the efficiency of the staff etc, I will be home in time to collect the littl'un off the school bus!
Marvellous. And so much different from that awful day when all I could see was the word 'cancer' staring at me from every wall and every leaflet rack.
And yet, it's all exactly the same here as it was that horrid day...so something else must have changed...I think it must be me. :)
