Hospital free...

Heya Blogland,

So I went to Bristol on Friday just to have my stitches removed from my line as they had been in 3 weeks and needed removing and I thought that it was going to be my last hospital appointment for a while until my doctor noticed that my line didn't have a protective cuff on it, which simply just protects my line and stops it from twisting. Unfortunately most hospitals don't stock Groshong lines and Bristol only had baby ones so I had to go all the way to London yesterday just to have this cuff put on my line. It was annoying to have to spend 5+hours in a car for a 5 min appointment but I suppose it'll be worth it in the long run because it means the actual line won't get damaged etc.

While I was at Bristol however I was asked to take part in a study on patients with PH. It's a anxiety study, because they believe that patients with PH suffer from anxiety and/or stress more than the average person. I have been told that I suffer from anxiety and I do get anxious in certain situations but I think over the years I've managed to avoid getting to stressed and I try to let things just go over my head. So at least I've got one sorted :). But I told them I would take part in it I'm not sure exactly what it entails but the lady said she'll get in contact with me soon and they'll go through it with me. I am however hospital free (minus inr appointments because they don't really count as they take about 5 minutes) until October unless my transplant call would like to happen in the mean time, so massive yey for me :D. 

Yesterday after London Megan, my niece and I went to see "Percy Jackson and the Sea of monsters," it was what I describe as a good 'Sunday afternoon movie' I hope you know what I mean by that. I wouldn't say it was as good as the first movie but still worth a watch. 

Something I'm slightly annoyed by is when did it become okay to stare at people? And when I say stare I mean openly ogle! Yesterday I got back from London quite late so I didn't have enough time to pre-make my Flolan but being prepared I always take some with me wherever I go and a spare pump. So after Megan, my niece and I went to the cinema we went to pizza hut and I had to make up my Flolan there. Now I told our waitress that I would be doing my medication and that there would be needles and she was fine with it, so I start making it up and people were openly staring/ogling. Beyond rude and makes me feel ridiculously uncomfortable. I just wondered when it became okay to just openly stare/ogle people?

  1. I don't think that they are trying to be rude, but humans are every bit as curious as cats, even though most people deny it.
