The long day................
Col's Friday clinic appointment took Hours. I've never seen Addenbrookes so busy. We had to be there for 9.45 for blood tests and to have his Hickman line dressed and see the pharmacist before the (in theory) 10.45 appointment with one of the post-transplant team. By noon, after sitting on waiting room chairs Col was starting to flag, luckily they were able to let him lay down in the adjoining Cancer Assessment Unit and after more hours of waiting, he saw the doctor and we finally escaped at 2.45.....not a moment too soon.
Saturday 20th to Friday 26th
