Blood and Spuds

Sorry everyone, I don’t know what I’ve done, but when I try responding to comments i am running into problems. I either try to type and the reply stops after a few letters, or it throws me out and I find myself having to open the comments and try again. Repeat. I’ don’t know what is happening, can’t see what has caused it, and don’t know how to stop it. So far, I am able to write this post, and will just have to hope that the other thing corrects itself. Perhaps it is WP’s revenge for my comments on the daily writing prompts, which now seem to have stopped.

Went for blood tests today. The first tube went to within a millimetre of the line but the vacuum gave up and we had to redo it. The lab won’t test them if thy aren’t full to the line. So with one faulty and one correct, I then had to give another three so they could test the progress of the drug I can never remember the name of. Five tubes. I won’t exaggerate, but it is most of a hand full, which seems a lot. It’s not much more before I qualify for a biscuit and a cup of tea.

After that, I had breakfast at McDonald’s and then went for another appointment. That’s three NHS appointments in one week. I calculate that with tests for anti-coagulation, tests for other stuff, the rheumatologist and reviews, I am visiting the NHS at least once every two weeks. And that’s before I’m actually ill. I’m there so often they really ought to invite me to the Christmas party.

I selected potatoes as the header picture as they are going to be a big part of the next few days.

    I am sorry about your problem with comments. A lot of odd things happen in the WP world and then vanish without trace. I suspect that bored programmers fiddle about to see what works and what doesn’t. I had air fried potato wedges today.

      My potato soup generally comes out like wallpaper paste. Wedges, roasted and mashed will certainly feature, as will cottage pie and fish pie. Happy Christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚
