i arrived at kings for my 10.00am appt. why, oh why cant hospitals be like this on week days (i know dont state the obvious), no one on reception, no swarms of student doctors, no people!!! i was five minutes early, the cardiac suite was empty except for the lovely lady, she greeted me with a warm smile which always helps. 10.00am sharp a dinky nurse/doctor (never found out which) wheeled me into a small side room. after twenty minutes of cool gel, funny sounding heartbeats, i was on my way. i will get the results mid-august when i see the cardiologist mr.gall (i keep putting stone on the end!).
afterwards i felt kind of ok. usually im tired, and some of the symptoms will accompany me for the rest of the day. however today they didnt. so on an impulse i said lets go to brighton. today was suppose to be rainy, but what the heck. so off we trundled. we arrived just as the sun came out. after lunch, i decided that i should treat myself to a little something, so unusually for me i said can we go to cath kidston. after being pushed round some pretty crowded streets which made me feel rather uncomfortable we approached the store. now as you know i can stand for a minute tops, so when i saw the step outside the shop that wasnt going to be a problem. however before i entered i let all the passing people well, pass before clambering out the chair. a young man (im too young to say that but you know what i mean) asked whether he could help carry the chair over the step, took me aback a little that someone would offer. random acts of kindness, really are amazing.
i could of bought the whole shop, i restrained myself to one pretty v.top, gorgeous little print, which i spent my birthday money on. i will post a picture of myself, with top in the next few weeks, with me sitting in the chair. i have been embarrassed to post a picture with chair, awkward even, but hey im using it too get about in. and i still think of it as being temporary.
