The smaller portion had an appointment with his specialist so we headed off to the hospital this morning.
The outpatient's clinic was chocka. The specialist was over an hour and a half late, and couldn't access the smaller portion's record because the hospital computer server was down. He is however, happy with the smaller portion's progress, and is talking about reversing the colostomy in December/January. With however the rider that an ileostomy might be necessary. WTF? Smaller portion heard only what he wanted to hear and came home v happy, moaning that it was too long to wait. He also has the all clear to drive again and to lift things - which includes the cats.
And I can't stop my eyes leaking. I have been running on empty for too long, am super, super tired and my bones hurt. At the moment in addition to the usual MS pain and difficulties getting up and down both hips are giving me grief. It hurts to sit, walk, or lie down. Standing still is OK once I have levered myself up. My brain is out to lunch and didn't invite me.
And yes, I know that I am being more than a tad unreasonable, but I have had enough. More than. I don't want to play this game anymore. And I am on call for Lifeline tonight from 5.30 until 7 tomorrow morning. Hopefully a very, very quiet one with all of Australia content with their lot. Unlikely. (While there are Lifeline centres across Australia all of us answer calls Australia wide on a first in best dressed basis.)
On the positive side the cats will probably be as happy as himself.
