Blood test this morning, and although his INR has gone up, Hubby is still way out of range so has another test on Wednesday and Friday.
I am thinking of starting a club for all of us who do not tick the medical boxes but know our bodies well enough to know when something is out of sync.
The professionals don’t listen to us and mess about with the numbers, and our health in the process, to make us fit into their textbook agenda.
No-one seems to see a patient as an individual anymore and I am expecting a similar thing on Wednesday when I should get a phone call to discuss the results of my blood test. There was no mention of my heart by the way when this appointment was made, just my diabetes results. The pharmacist, who was apparently unable to contact me last week (my phone showed no missed calls, was on 24/7 and constantly with me), should also call on Wednesday to discuss either my medication, which is not up for review, my iron levels, or concerns over B12. Confused? Yeah. Likewise.
It’s another hot day but at least we have a breeze. Maya has had two walks today so far and has been good on both of them. She’s asleep at the moment with her nose inside my slipper and using the other one as a pillow. I removed my feet from them before she stopped the circulation!
