Following a phone call from the hospital yesterday regarding a cancellation, Hubby was offered an appointment today for one of the tests our GP had offered to arrange.
This was to do with veins and circulation, all of which had been checked out some years ago when he was told nothing could be done to improve things. Having a new GP who is being very thorough, Hubby said that he didn’t think anything had changed, and today’s appointment confirmed that. However, it was an uptodate valuation so we know where we stand. He has another appointment for checking out his nervous system on Tuesday in the same department.
Maya was interested in all the comings and goings at the hospital and got some admiring looks and fuss from patients and visitors alike. I walked her round the grounds and car park, and although she wasn’t very good on the lead, she did sit and wait quietly and patiently when it mattered.
From there we went into town to switch some money around, get a snack and a cup of tea (hospital prices have almost doubled for coffee) and give Maya some more exposure to crowds.
Lunch today was therefore late with Hubby having a cottage pie out of the freezer and I made myself a tomato pasta using our tomatoes and onions. Lovely.
Hubby did a little repair for our neighbour on the framework of her raised vegetable beds so when he finished we did some washing even though it was quite late in the afternoon. Most of it has dried outside and the rest is only damp so should finish off indoors overnight.
It is day 3 of Maya’s oil capsules and Piriton and we can already see an improvement in her coat. Hubby has checked the sore patches on her belly and they are looking so much better as she isn’t scratching so much or nibbling at herself. She has also eaten quite well today so maybe the last sack of food was just a one off. We are putting something tasty or of a different texture in her meals though to break any possible monotony.
