All ready to go but , and it's a big but . Doc swings by and I sign the consent form , chat about drugs , pros and cons etc camera down throat to start with he says to check there are not clots lurking around the heart . Ok. So when did you last take your rivaroxaban ? Monday evening as requested says I . 48hours in advance . Bit too early he says , have to go back and discuss with consultant . Well I should have know then a bad omen was looming ! backs he comes an hour later . Ok. The anesatist ( ? ) has gone sick . We work as a team and we're looking for someone ! What , is there a pool of them ? Is it that easy ? This is my heart ! Plan B , we can fit you in on October 22, oh no you can't , I've got a 3 week holiday all sorted out , no way Jose !
I'll get back to you he says . 2 1/2 hrs later everyone in the bay has gone and I'm mentally bouncing off the walls . Another tip: bring your phone charger . Forgot mine Doh ! So just found out I'm still on the list but now at 1400 if they can find the knock out guy . Hare field being in the middle of nowhere is a long way to anywhere if I don't go in , I'm sticking with plan A then !
