Ablation blog part 2: today's the day

Well after seeing the doc last night for the question and answer session , he said he couldn't find my medical notes , did I have any letters with me !!!!! What ???? Panic . Fortunately I had a previous letter to my GP stating my history . I have t come this far to be sent home , no way . After more blood pressure INR tests , game of let's find the pulse, x now marks the spot on my foot . Because no previous bed owner ordered a meal I had a lunch box of goodies for diner, better than Easyjet ! 4 of us ladies in a bay for 6 all with heart conditions . Swapped stories till midnight then lights out . Tip ; take ear plugs and I remembered the the eye mask that someone else suggested , both a must . There is a bell alert system here and it's on and off all night! Take off your nail varnish ladies , I had to pick mine off ! Leave all jewelry at home . Woken at 5am for another blood test And to be told you're first in , gulp . Shower time with the lovely anti bacteria pink goo and yes , the hair gets it as well ! now feels like straw. Had a sip of water at 5 so that's it. Is it too late to run ?

Oh, what fun! Running would not move you forward. All the best. We will be thinking of you and look forward to hearing all about it.

Well done so far. All sounds very familiar except there were five men in my bay --no ladies sadly. Had a celebrity one occasion which was fun. Which hospital are you in?

Ah! BS. His initials Bob, not your tale.

Great car enthusiast as well. Spent many happy hours chatting . One of his visitors asked him where he got his accent . He replied "I got it from my Mother. " upon which the visitor told him that he was the only person who made The Queen sound common. The rest of us were biting our pillows with laughter.

Humor really helps. So interesting to hear how things are done in UK compared to US. No pink germicidal soap shower or white knickers here. :)
