Doctors, Tests and the Elderly.
I think the reason why I don't post more often is because I really dislike this keyboard. Keys too undefined, too close together etc etc. If I have my right hand accidentally touches the number keys it will go into a stupid scroll, delete post attack. It's not as though there isn't enough things happening to tell you about. There is.
My partner has a very slow heart rate and so we have been traipsing in and out of doctors offices and hospitals, getting tests and seeing cardiac specialists.
Looks like he'll have to have a Pacemaker. The lovely Cardiac Surgeon said that they are easy to put in but difficult to remove if it doesn't fix the problem. Hence, more CT scans and blood tests.
There was the problem of test results not being found at our last visit. The Drs and staff are just so nice and it is appreciated so much.
I come home a little depressed after seeing all the elderly people and know that is ahead for me. Old age just stinks. One lady told me that she had lost 42kgs since December and they can't find what is causing it. She thinks it is cancer... Her husband has Alzheimer's Disease and some days he is really angry. So she is coping with both problems at an age that it should all be easy sailing.
Anyway....... I'm having a lovely "time out" this morning. It's cool and a beautiful sunny day.
I have no plans for it. May make some lovely soap. May not!
I hope you and yours are all well and are going to have a wonderful day.
Take care. xo
