It has been a long day. Firstly, all is fine. I must say that quickly as I don’t want to worry anyone. The lovely wonderful efficient NHS was working at its very best for me and I feel very lucky and blessed.
So this was my day….
09:00 Off the boat and into a prebooked taxi to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary Breast Scanning Department. An appointment which included three different types of scans, a lovely doctor, kind helpful nurses and amazing radiographers. Everyone checked and double checked, examined and looked at my left bewb which and shown a wee blip previously.
Two hours later, feeling a little squished but nothing awful, Floss and I left with me having been given the all clear and been discharged. Next visit in three years when the mobile unit comes up.
So thank you God.
We took another taxi to an Asian supermarket I have always wanted to visit. This time I had Flossie with me – my excellent Sichuan Chinese cook.
After perusing and buying the entire contents therein, Floss and I went to the next door restaurant for dim sum. We deserved it. Delicious.
To make up for our decadence, we walked miles into town. Apparently my middle class super power is that I can find a branch of John Lewis in any provincial town!
The excitement never stopped. We shopped, Floss tried on, I parted with cash, we dropped but all was worth it.
We also sprayed every known fragrance searching for The One. Aberdeen is now empty. And so back on the boat going home.
Thank you for all your kind thoughts. It is appreciated and, like you, I am wholly relieved.
