Pow another hectic week. It started Monday with putting my baby Louis into kennels. I hate that frightened look on his face when he thinks mummy is dumping him.
We kept him until the last minute . Tuesday it was an early Start. The hospital appointment was for 11am. So on the early train to Victoria. Then underground to to South Kensington. Arriving in good time. Mavis was shown her cubicle and given the gown and bits ready for her procedure.
We had a nice nurse to assist and advise us. What was going to happen etc. We were told they will try and get her in by 1.30, and after a couple of hours she could go home. So she changed and we sat and waited.
She finally went in at quarter to 3pm. They told us it would take about 30 to 40 minutes. The porter came and wheeled her away. With a cheery wave she disappeared. I sat and waited, and waited and waited. By 5pm I was climbing the walls. just then the sister came in to me. How she advised me was terrifying .
Oh Mr n I AM SO SORRY!. YOUR PRECIOUS MAVIS………………………………………………………..
AT THAT SECOND MY BRAIN WENT INTO MELTDOWN. All I could think was something major had happened. I interrupted her flow and asked wow. Where is she. Whats happened IS SHE ALRIGHT??????.
She is ok but she was taken to the wrong bed. She is in recovery. If you collect your things I will take you to her. Well we had 2 Trolley luggage bags and a back pack. All her clothes . But a nurse helped me. Off we went to find her.
When I looked round the curtain and could see her and she smiled. Relief was an understatement. She told me there had been a complication and so they brought me here to rest and recover. During the bi -op they cut through a vain and she was chocking on blood. But it was quickly sorted. So now she was being kept in overnight.
The Hospital do have rooms for visitors and I had a twin room, It was about 10 mins walk round the road way. Very clean.
On Wednesday I went to collect her and she was released. We had a board meeting cancelled so we made our way to padington and a 3 hr train to Swansea where we both were booked to give a Presentation. Which was well received. We had a free day to explore. we were a few 100 feet from the beach ,fantastic nice and warm ,nice hotel.
When we left there on Saturday Morning we set off for London again. Booked into our hotel in Fleet St. get showered and dressed in my dinner suit and bow tie ,we walked the short distance to the Lasag Ball.
What a fantastic Venue. Steeped in History I was fascinated, Thank you Harminder.
Late to bed, and up just after 6 to get ready for the final Journey home. And most of all get here by 12 noon to pick up my baby louis from Kennels before 12 close up..
With louis home with us most of PC work updated a bit of lunch I am looking fwd to an early night to catch up on kip.
Ready for what ever Mavis throes at me.
