We are … 60%?

Turns out I caught Carien’s tummy bug.  No wonder I feel out of sorts.  I don’t get sick a lot and I don’t know how to deal with my body not being 100%. 

In our house the stereotype is reversed.  When Wouter gets sick he becomes the bravest, strongest, understated-est patient ever.  I become sorry for myself.  Go figure!

Wouter nearly had heart failure.  As a joke I told him I think I am pregnant because I felt better after I had dry toast.  We are planning on expanding our family but not now!  His face was so worth it. 

Tomorrow morning Woutertjie is going for a full blood count, followed by a blood transfusion if necessary.  It could turn out to be a long day.  Here is our estimated iteni itine itinn plan for the day.  I pride myself on my vocabulary and spelling skills but that other word that shall not be mentioned I simply can’t get my head around.

7:30  Arrive at hospital and get Woutertjie admitted

8:00 Arrive in the ward

8:30 Blood is sent away

9:30 Results are back

10:00 Blood is ordered from the depot

12:00 Blood arrives

12:30  Transfusion starts

16:30 Transfusion ends

18:30 Post transfusion observations complete

19:00 Paperwork done and we can go home

Based on arriving home at 19:30 that would mean that Wouter will be home before we are. 

I was forced into adding the previous sentence by Hugo, Wouter’s co-worker who read the blog every day.  After yesterday’s “discussion” about Wouter’s work hours Hugo sent me thinly veiled threats if I didn’t mention that Wouter got home at 17:30 today.  I can’t begin to describe how much I appreciated it when the door opened and my bestest, sweetest, funniest, supportive-est husband walked through it. 

Tomorrow I am making an appointment with the oncology social worker to start working my way through my issues.  Wish her luck.
