My Hospital Appointment

Why doesn’t one department talk to another.

My appointment to see Dr Cominos was Aug 2nd and I have worked my life around this.

I was waiting for the appointment for the CT Scan and got a blood test request then today I have finally received the Appointment for the Scan on the 8th Aug.

This is to late for the 2nd app so I have had to phone up and explain this and have now a new appointment for 20th Aug.

I say in all this Palliative care how confusing for the frail older person that have my condition.

So now I have sorted my life around the new appointment.

My Diary–A Trip to Cleethorpes

I have had another great weekend as we have set off last thursday for Kings Lynne to camp on my friends drive.

We found there were 2 Fen Lanes and the sat/nav takes you to the wrong one so we were totally lost up a one track road with a Dust Cart backing up and the driver was not stopping for us. Help!! we had to race into someones drive just as he got to us.

I phoned for help and Tina and Glen had to come out and find us.

They live in a lovely Bungalow that they have been doing up and they live an idyllic country life. Logs in the Garage ready for the log fire and lots of tree trunks waiting to be chopped up.

The garden leads to a field where we saw a deer and many species of birds.

The dogs all went for an off lead walk on the Fens where they chased Rabbits.

Next day (Saturday) we travelled on together to our Photography Rally at Cleethorpes but we were staying right in the heart of the countryside and the dogs loved it

Louis Heading the Hare Chase

Sky and Buster have become Louis’s best friends and they have had a great time together as there were so many fields to chase in but Buster has hurt his leg so he has had to go to the vets today.

The Cherry Manor Farm was a great place to camp at and we have had great fun walking in Cleethorpes for a mile and taking Photos and showing them through a projector onto the wall in the studio and comparing how we each saw the walk.

We ended up at The Oriental Restaurant for one of those eat as much as you like-but what is it that when you can eat like that you are full up after one plate.–we did have lots of Ice-cream though.

Sunday– after a long country walk altogether– we got showered and went onto our friends in Immingham to their Ruby Wedding where we had a great Sunday evening enjoying a good party and BBQ– meeting all their family and friends.

We then slept on their drive in the Motorhome and I was shattered.

This morning we set off for home and Louis behaved very well as we had a friend’s son with us because it was a coincidence that he had to get back to Canterbury Uni so we were pleased to deliver him to his new house in Canterbury 

This really has been a great time and thanks to all my friends for making it so Special.

Some Photos of the walk

My Diary– today has been so warm.

The day has been warm and I have pottered in the garden and it is straight again,  just as we are off  again on Thursday to stay on my friends drive in Kings Lynn for the night and she has 2 dogs for Louis to play with and then we are travelling all together to Market Raisin to stay at the back garden of another friends cottage but going out for a meal when everyone arrives and then on Saturday is the walk in Cleethorpes for Ray to enter the photography competition  and then another meal –all we can eat at a oriental restaurant.

Then a BBQ breakfast Sunday where we then travel to Uncle Norms drive for the Ruby Wedding celebrations.
I’m going to come home bloated and full up but a weekend of free wild camping –that’s the way to do it.
I hope to have my appointment for a CT scan when i get home as i have had to wait as they wanted a blood test which I went to have at the GP’s on Monday.
I do hope they get it in in time for my 2nd of August appointment with the Oncologist or that will be cancelled again as she wont have time to look at it–again.
My neighbour has told me that there are reports of Dogs dieing from a poisen on our beaches at Seasalter Hampton and Tankerton –all the places I take Louis so thats a bit worrying.
Who could do that to the poor animals?
