I had my mammogram today and will get the results in about 3 weeks.
This is the first one since my mastectomy last year and was done in half the time as they only had the one side to do. As always, the staff were lovely.
We had a long journey though, a round trip of 350 miles, so I am seriously thinking of getting my notes moved up here as it would appear only my mammograms have been reset for five years, nothing else. I will need to see my GP about that, but we’ll wait for today’s results first. We’ve already discussed it and if the shit hits the fan and they find something in the other breast, they can make the sides match and I’ll save a fortune on bras.
The journey wasn’t too bad and we only had two bouts of rain. Although Hubby had checked the internet for roadworks and there weren’t any on our route, judging by the queues and traffic lights, someone hasn’t updated the Road Traffic files.
We had a few breaks for changing drivers but Maggie refused to pee on any of our stops, though she did poo for me when we refuelled.
There was a road closure at Stratford Upon Avon and four way traffic lights on the roundabout. The tailback on the A46 was over five miles, luckily we were going the other way and only got held up for about ten minutes.
With that in mind, we decided to buy a road map for the car rather than rely on the SatNav so that we could work our way round the problem.
We arrived in plenty of time, so had a hot lunch and much needed cup of coffee from Greggs, got said map book, and fuelled up. We tried to get into The Range but the car park was jammed solid and nothing was moving, so we did a 180 and went on to my appointment, arriving almost an hour early.
I was logged in and seen within ten minutes of arrival, so we went back to The Range, parked elsewhere and I walked across the road. It was still a nightmare finding access through barriers, walls and shrubbery, but eventually I saw someone coming out between two cars and slipped in that way. I got some lovely stickers and 3D butterflies for my cards, but other than that, the selection was disappointing bordering on lousy. I think I am going to have to find an alternative supplier.
We made good time coming home, deciding to risk the A46 as it was after 6pm as we approached and traffic was moving freely both towards and in front of us. There was no hold up at all, and we got home at 8.30, first priority being to walk Maggie who relieved herself on the grass verge opposite. It was almost 12 hours since her last pee when we left home!!
We’ve had 2 cups of tea and something to eat and are now unwinding before we retire to bed. It’s been along and tiring day, though Maggie bless her slept most of the way home. We’ll all feel it over the next couple of days though.
It’s good to be home.
