The information evening for bariatric surgery was interesting but there always has to be one awkward person. She asked loads of pointless questions yet the surgeon had already gone over these points. The lady didn’t know when to shut up either so the rest of us were getting bored. In the end the surgeon tactfully brought the session to an end by saying questions could be answered when everybody has their one on one appointments. This is going to be roughly a four month wait.
On Monday and Wednesday Rick had his blood tests done in preparation for the next appointment. He’s not very happy as we already know his blood is clotting too fast and his sugar level is too high. Rick is also stressing out about the other appointment to see the surgeon about his back. It was put back September but as his symptons are getting worse our doctor has told us it should be fast tracked forward. All we can do is wait and see what happens.
