You might think what is that for title. Finally went to the hospital! As if I was itching with impatience to go there again. Not at all, of course, but some things just have to happen. I will tell you later in the post.
The past week started with a workout on Monday of course. I am always quite busy on Mondays. A lot of blog work, the laundry, Eve came, our help in the household and in the evening we went to visit friends in our village. Tuesday I went to the gym and Wednesday Denise and I cycled. The weather was pretty good last week. Very dry, but cloudy. That’s a shame, I love clear blue summer skies so much. I got very tired Tuesday after working out and did not feel well all week. Gigantic tired and so much pain in my body. The highlight was Sunday, when I was sick all day long!
Finally went to the hospital
Thursday and Friday I had to go to the hospital for examinations. Because of Corona I haven’t been in the hospital for almost two years, so I now have a lot to catch up on. Think that’s terrible. I really hate to go to the hospital. It makes you feel like such a patient and I hate that. But I could go on my bicycle both days and a bit of fresh air through my head, that’s what I needed. The fact that we can’t go to England during our holiday suddenly came in and it made me very sad. I miss England so much. Luckily I have a dear friend who suggested we go out for dinner and that is planned! That cheers me up.
Thursday I had an ultrasound of the liver and blood drawn. And also a dab for blood gases, luckily they no longer do that in the wrist. On Friday I had to go for a mamogram, just the biennial. A photo had to be redone and that scared me a bit but it was all good. I still have pain in my sternum. Geez, what are they scraping these days. Two weeks ago I had already drawn blood and now I only have to do the 6-minute walk test and in October to the pulmonologist and then I’ve finally have it all done! And then once every six months again of course, but then I am back on scedule with hospital visits.
And then the weekend…..
On Saturday I first exercised and then nothing more. Still so tired. Actually I wanted to take some photos for the blog but I just didn’t have the energy. We did have a nice meal outside, Gerben had made pizza. And watched Cardinal in the evening. When we were just in bed, at 0.30 a.m, Gerben had a phone call and he had to go to Amsterdam for a malfunction. On Sunday I woke up with the feeling that I was really going to get sick. First had breakfast(no pancakes with strawberries!) and took paracetamol. Then I sat in the garden and read, but it was not really relaxing. One of the neighbors decided to cut wood all afternoon!! Idiot!
Gerben came home at half past two p.m and went straight to bed. At four o’clock I again took some paracetamol because they had done their job. I’m done with feeling not good again. I’ve been feeling bad all week and now I want to enjoy again yes! I can imagine that this is not exactly a pleasant read for you. Sorry, this is just my life. It’s not just fun. But it will also pass! I have a quiet week ahead of me and we are going to plan the holiday. Gerben’s phone went of at 4.15 a.m and he had to go again…..broken nights….that could also be added.
Have a good week everyone!
