Let me Vent.



So we drive 5 hours south stay at motel, be at hospital  by 7am starve the child while we wait,finally get in to operating waiting room get asked same questions 2 x again The Captain gets his gown on to take Miss 4.5 in.Wait another half hour and get told we have been CANCELLED!!!!!! We are now on waiting list again.
Yes I cried so disapointed and upset been waiting for over 2 years for this.
Another poor lady had her 2 twins plus 2 other kids there one twin was cancelled she has to drove 4 hours north as well.Twin that needed op had not been breast fed since 2am and had been crying on and off for hours while he waited.Feel sorry for her.
OK vent over told The Captain I need an opshop fix now!! Wish me luck finding one.We are on the way out of Brissie now so not likely to happen..
Home in about 5 hours I HOPE!!! Very,very  wet so we are driving carefully

OMG what a god damn frickin' nightmare Nelly!!!! Christ almighty what is wrong with people these days? And that POOR woman who starved her breastfed twin for an op only to get it cancelled?!!!!! Farrrrrrrrrrr out!! Can you imagine how completely engorged she must have been? I bet the other twin was getting double helpings to relieve the pain for her. TMI? I just know what it would feel like. I was at the Mater Hospital today with my 13y.o. with gastro and I was thinking about you, wondering how I was going to get a pair of 8mm knitting needles to you! Drive safely - you deserve a massive oppy splurge. xoxo

Oh no! Terrible news! When I had my first hip replacement scheduled I was actutally with the anaethetist when the surgeon realised he'd forgotten to order the right sized joint. To say I was annoyed was an understatement. xxx

Scarlett Fontaine said...

oh no! Thats awful that they cancelled it after all the travelling and i also feel sorry for that other lady too. Hope the op shopping was successful, looking forward to seeing any finds :o) Scarlett x

What terrible news!! Little miss still seems to be smiling. I hope everything goes well for the next and hopefully final operation date. You all deserve some ice cream for sure. Tam

They out to be ashamed of themselves to be so unorganized! It is a hospital for G*d's sake, not a store for fishing lures where you'd expect things to get scrabbled about! I do not understand why they couldn't tell you not to come as they are swamped, or whatever. And the lady they kept waiting, ouch, poor darling baby, poor overfull mother.

On another note, though, your hubby and daughter are way cute together! I'm full of hope that you will have found at least one op-shop and a marvelous treasure to show us all who watch as you tend your garden of curiosities.

May you be blessed with a week of, peace, a new appointment that takes care of your beautiful daughter's eyes, without the hardships, and a new op-shop to try...and a nice crisp $50 bank note fall into your lap from a good book. Happened to me once.

Hi Nelly!

Oh you poor darlings! What a journey you have all had! Good on you for venting....everyone needs a good vent! Little Miss 4.5 looks just gorgeous in the pics you posted. Isn't it amazing how resiliant kids are? Mine never cease to amaze me too!

Wishing you all a safe and happy trip home.

Take care, Blessings!

Nelly said...

@Pull Your Socks Up!Aww thanks for thinking of me I will make sure my needles are well organised next time.
Sadly no opshopping The Captain is an A to B type of person.

Nelly said...

@Vintage Vixen Oh VV that really is awful.Hope he was embarressed.

Nelly said...

@Scarlett Fontaine No opshopping sad hay?

Nelly said...

@The Widow Next Oh well must move on now.Apparently an emergency came in.I just dont know why they cant shuffle locals around when travellers have so far to go and its not cheap wasted money not even an opshop jaunt to make up for it.

Nelly said...

@The Widow Next PS a $50 note be nice.,Best I did was a gold and diamond ring (not too fancy must post about it soon) was in a 50c mag I was buying.I thought it was one of those sample sachets ha

Nelly said...

@PennI Hi PennI thanks for dropping in I knwo they are great I am just glad that it wasnt Miss 8 I had to take or it would have been grumble all the way.Am now following your gorgeous blog.

Linda said...

oh Nelly you poor things that is just awful!!!!! I hope you have had some kind of op shop fix by now.! Thank you for your lovely comments xxx

Erica Louise said...

Oh, thats just awful :( You must be so mad, I hope you buy something nice at the op shop to make you feel marginally better

Oh poor you. It is always more stressful when kids are involved and five hours. God, I would be exhausted!!
I zig sag stitch mine...it isn't very forgiving if there is a stuff up, but then, neither is glue. I make it very large as if there is a tear down the track it is less likely to be a very big one.
Good luck

How very frustrating Nelly! Our health system is such a mess.It is so wrong to have to wait so long and then be called in only to be cancelled at the very last moment. I would have cried too! Especially wrong when you have come so far not to mention the stress on everyone. I hope you don't have to wait too long to be called back and that the surgery gets done. Waiting with anticipation to see if you managed to get an op shop fix on the way home. :)
Hope the sunshine is shining in your shadows again soon.
