Well tonight was weigh in and I did better than I thought, I was down .8, it isn't that much in the scheme of things but considering what the past week has been like I'll take it.
Things did not progress as we thought they should today for hubby. He went to the walk-in clinic and the doctor confirmed that this needs to be tended to as soon as possible. Duh, we already knew that, but then on the other hand he said this is Alberta. So even though we have a supposedly great health care system you are just a number and you have to wait till you get called. The fluid that is draining has now changed from off white with red streaks to an almost dull orange. Yes, there is infection there....no, they are not in a hurry to stop this thing from advancing to the brain, if it hasn't already. Hubby wants to wait till the end of the week to see if we hear from the surgeon and if not then I will be placing a call to his office on Tuesday. We did find out that it won't do any good to go to Edmonton to the ER as apparently there is only one surgeon in the province that does this type of thing .... you guessed it, he's the one we are waiting on. This is totally maddening.
As for the rude receptionist, I haven't decided what to do there. That also may come to a head on Tuesday. I may have to make an office visit so I get the point across.
Enough with the on going saga, I am sure you are all tired of hearing about it by now. Tina, our BBQ is this weekend coming up and sounds like everyone is going to come that was invited so it should be fun. Will mean some extra work for me but it will take my mind off of things.
