GuessWhat #2?

 Hello everyone,

my blogging has been sparse or non-existent. There have been a few hiccups, and I am off to Wellington Hospital again, driving down this time, and waiting at the front Main Entrance at 7.25 a.m. on Friday.

The same surgeon will see me, and from what I have been told,  some limited information,  and it wasn't any help for the nurse to tell me " You don't need to worry about that" there is either a narrowing inside the existing stent, or they will do a " Plus and Minus" test, where the pressure is assessed, not sure if this will be just in the LAD, where the original stent is. or other arteries. 

Not quite like outdoor plumbing where the pipes can be seen, taken out and replaced, I am hoping it will be an easy fix.

Weather wise, we have had rain, more rain, constant rain. The temperatures have been low at night, and some farmers have had huge lambing losses.  Well into the minus Celsius, and some places only reaching 1 C at about 10 a.m.

Covid restrictions continue,  positive cases are slowly lessening, hospital visitors will be severely restricted, after a patient in a ward with others had a very obvious conjugal visit, the curtains were closed, but one other patient said the "goings on" were very indicative of what was happening!!!!

Check out Sue's blog over at Kamo Lady to see the Teddy Bear comments!!!

There  is a wonderful fabric shop I can visit on the way home, hopefully that will be Saturday, a Shoe shop in Wellington has a massive sale, and as a reward on the way home, Otaki has many outlet shops with great bargains,. A bit like the jelly bean after an injection when you were a child.

Off to pack the last minute things into my bag,  maybe some photos tonight .

Quotation of the day, author unknown,

"Trust the trained professionals to do the difficult jobs"

Greetings from Jean

I hope all goes well.
I heard a conjugal visit while I was in hospital with my first child. Man, so weird.
Good your COVID is slowing.
Have fun shopping!
All the best!

Jenny said...

Best of luck Jean for your procedure in Wellington Hospital. By the sound of it you are having day surgery? We will be thinking of you.

Terra said...

The jelly bean after an injection as a child, I like that, and you deserve a nice shopping trip after your doctor visit and future treatment.

Susan Heather said...

Good luck for tomorrow. Hope it is a minor fix. It has been very wet here but apparently the warmest winter on record.

Sure hope your tests have a positive result, Jean. Enjoy the shopping afterwards! We certainly deserve rewards from time to time. Wish everyone would heed that quote!

I am thinking of you. I hope that it goes well.

Thank you all so much, I am in Wellington, very windy, a great motel right across the street from the hospital, and Yes, Jenny, day surgery, unless they find something else radically wrong, I should be out by 6 p.m. so they told me last week. I get lunch and dinner too!!! The best part, no meals for TWO whole days.

Glad you travelled safely and hoping the procedure and recovery is quick for you. Sending love!

Carole @ From My Carolina Home said...

Hope all turns out well, keeping you in my thoughts for a successful procedure.

Hi Jean, hope your test went well and safely too. While we are wide open here, masks are still mandated and contact info is taken at restaurants as well as numbers limited inside all stores. I think it's good to take precautions considering how contagious this Delta variant is.
That goings on story is something else!!

QuiltGranma said...

Praying that all goes well with you both during this trying time with your health. From one Jean to another!

Tanya said...

Take care. Hope everything turns out to be easy and fixable!
