I had an appointment with the Pre-Admissions Clinic at 11:45 this morning, so we headed out just after 10:30. Parking at the hospital for normal sized vehicles is tough, let alone one the size of our beast, so Steve dropped me off where he could...which happened to be at a bus stop not far from the main entrance. He then went over to a nearby mall for lunch in the food court and to kill time wandering around there.
The first part of my appointment went quickly...met with the pharmacist, then had blood pressure, weight (ugh!) and height taken. That was pretty well done within the first half hour but then the wait started. My final meeting was with the Anaesthetist...and I waited for over an hour to see him. It was just after 1:00 when I texted Steve to come pick me up.
So it was after 2:00 by the time Steve dropped me off at home and headed into Sidney to run some errands. While he was gone, I made a big batch of chili...enough for dinner tonight, a freezer-bag for Steve to take hunting this weekend, plus a container in the freezer for dinner another time.
I was just finishing up when Steve got home. He had parked the truck so that we could sit on the sunny side and enjoy happy hour outside. A nice change!
Steve wanted to wash the quads in preparation for heading south, so Tuesday (October 1) we went to Triangle RV where they have a car wash. We found a spot to park and offload and rode them over to the coin wash.
After helping me bring the clean laundry back to the trailer, Steve headed out on his walk. I did some baking...and then made a big meatloaf for dinner. Of course, we had leftovers...for the freezer. More dinners ready to be reheated...an easy meal for Steve to make.
It's hard to believe...but this little guy, our youngest grandson, Isaac, is 10 months old today!.....
I left Steve watching a Netflix movie and drove into Sidney to pick up the groceries he will need for his hunting trip this weekend.
When I got back at around noon, the delivery truck had arrived. Here he is backing up the driveway....
I dropped Steve off at home and went to pick up a couple of things from a local medical equipment loan cupboard that I will need after my surgery. It's a wonderful service they offer...you can borrow the equipment for 3 months and the cost is by donation to the non-profit.
Steve was pretty well all packed and ready to go...except for the last minute things and food to go in the cooler. They leave bright and early tomorrow morning...
