So off to the hospital I went yesterday and in good time, I only had to stop at the grocery store to buy something so I could get coins to pay for the parking at the hospital and I had to stop at the recycling place to toss away some old newspapers and glass jars. I had also promised to show my old camera in the store to one who works there. The drive takes around 40 minutes now days since they have put up speeding cameras along the way, it went much faster when I worked in that town because there were no cameras along the way back then 🙂
I had plenty of time to find a parking space but realised there was none! I circled around for 15 minutes until I was lucky to arrive just as another car was leaving! Perhaps I’m stupid but one could think that they actually would have enough of parking spaces at a hospital 🙂 So suddenly I started to be a bit late instead because it is a bit to walk to the orthopedist. Anyway, I hurried up the stairs just to find out that have changed the routines! I have always signed up and paid where the orthopedist has its area but no there was a sign saying I should do that by the main reception by the entrance, so then I had to run down two stairs, and sign in and pay and then running again up two stairs to wait in the waiting room 🙂
I had barely sat down when they called for me and I was sweating like a pig 🙂 My doctor said that the x-rays shows that the bone just by the implants might have started to erode some because of the higher levels of chromium and manganese ions one of the implants lets out into my blood. No danger though, he said that I won’t have to go for an inspection again until two years from now but I have to admit that it doesn’t sound nice when they say my bone has started to erode 🙂 The other leg that another doctor fixed is perfect still though and those implant has been sitting in my leg eight years longer.
We worked today even though it is a holiday here but we prefered to work today and then have a three day weekend instead of being home today and work tomorrow (we worked the same time as we do on Fridays). Well to be honest, I don’t mind working Friday and stay home on Thursday since we don’t work especially long on Fridays. It would perhaps have been better since most places were closed today so I need to go to town and do some shopping either tomorrow or on Saturday anyway.
It is time to give both me and the dogs and cats something to eat, I am a bit tired since I got up at: 4:20 today and I also mowed most of the lawn when I came home, I still have some to mow outside my garden by the road and the dog yard but I’ll take that tomorrow.
Have a great day!
