Mavis is up today and looks fine. Shes not perfect but I’ll settle for what she is today. Any improvement is a bonus.
I was up early for my appointment.
After several tests it was decided that I must attend again next Tuesday and be prepared for Laser Eye Surgery. It seems I have glaucoma? As Long as I can continue driving mavis to and from the hospital that’s ok. So at the moment I’ve got drops to see what happens I will get pains and discomfort for about 3/4 days. Ah! well that’s life but not as we know it Jim.
I’ve just spilt Superglue over my desk. I didn’t see it I got a tissue to wipe it up. I was shocked to learn that the puddle was red-hot it burnt my fingers. I never knew that. So be aware its hot in a quantity.
The most exciting thing today was mavis said she broke the shelf inside the fridge Door. So I am trying to glue it.
I also bought one of those little chains that you fit on your glasses and hang round your neck. Works fine as I know where they are now. But I feel like Larry Grayson,Yuk!!!
Sometimes the simplest of things can wind you up. I was expecting confirmation of the appointment over the phone. But they called before I got back from the hospital. They refused to tell mavis. So I rang them. After press this and that. I get please state name and department. Ophthalmology. Did You say Dorking???? No. Did you say robinwayso??? No. umpteen did you say stupid things. I stopped responding. Sorry that name is not in my dictionary. Please hold I will pass you to my supervisor.
Hello can I help , so on we go again. Sorry no one here rang you today. Hhave you a patient ref. Yes. Sorry we have no records under that ref.
Look I was in the clinic this morning and I was with the doctor who has made a temp reservation for next week. Sorry but are sure it was this clinic.
Right Enough is enough. Just put me through to the clinic I want to speak with my doctor NOW.
Please hold ………………………
Hello can I help. here we go again can I have your ref. Yes its. Oh I’ve just spoken to you havent I. Yes Just put me through to the doctor.
I heard her say Ive got that man on the phone again.
Then I get a man, hello I am the supervisor can I help. Explain all over again.
Ah yes you left before we could make an appointment didn’t you. No you said I can go home and you will phone me. But you phoned before I got home to take your call.
At last we are getting there. Yes please hold while I check.
Please confirm name , address , dob , what you had for breakfast yesterday , where did you go for holiday 10 years ago , who ties your shoe laces. It just goes on and on. Then At last we can confirm your appointment.
Thats all I asked for.
See what I mean.
Now poor mavis is having the same thing paying the electric bill on-line it doesn’t recognise account number and tells us we owe a fortune. technology is sometimes so painful.
Well mavis has enjoyed an evening meal. She looks a bit puffy but otherwise OK.
