Waiting5 Aug 2014
Have you ever felt as though you have been waiting so long for something that you have altogether lost sight and perspective on what you have been waiting for?
Recently, I was given some rather shocking news and I was asked to make an appointment to see a surgeon. It has been three weeks since I first rang to make that appointment and I still don't have a date!!
First I was asked if I could send some paperwork to the surgeon to decide how urgent it was that he see me. Then I was asked to go for a Scan and now I am waiting for the surgeon to see the scans and tell his receptionist when he would like to see me. I have been ringing his office to be told that he has not spoken to them yet and that they may receive the information tomorrow, which was to be Tuesday, then Wednesday and now it is Thursday night and still nothing.
I have now started questioning myself and if the news was that shocking in the first place? My husband assures me it is and I am now hoping all will come back into perspective once I get the date, which will hopefully be…tomorrow!
On Friday night at 5.10pm I eventually received a call from the surgeon's receptionist to say that the surgeon did not think that I needed an operation and that I would be okay.
I feel like I dodged a bullet…or was it a cannon ball!
