Home Again, Home Again.....

Jiggity jig.

Earlier than expected, too. You see, when someone tells Anne they will see her on Thursday, and the assumption all along was that she would likely have all her appts this week, etc, etc, etc.....the mind assumes that is what is going to happen. One does not think to look more closely at the appt print out page, and check the small print that shows the date of the appts. One sees Thursday, in big letters, and assumes this Thursday. So, I got up early, got a good start on loading the car, woke Anne, we ate and checked out, and drove to the Mayo Clinic, and went to the 2nd floor west wing for Anne's appt. To be told, your appt is in October. WHAT????? Took a look at the appt sheet, yep, 19 October. Geezzzzzzzz. We were so shocked, surprised and irritated, we weren't sure what to do. So, we stopped at the cafe and got Anne a drink, and we killed a little time. Then, off to the car and we headed home.

The distance from the Mayo Clinic itself to the house is 160 some miles. It took just a bit over 2 hours and 20 minutes to drive it. The distance from here to the motel isn't quite as much. It is about 10 miles from the motel to the Mayo Clinic. Just some trivia, for anyone who might be interested.

I guess this all answers some questions. One of the sets of blood tests they are running are blood cultures, and those take a good week or more to do. We did sort of wonder how they were going to have all the results back before her appts. Now we see.

Anne snoozed in the car all the way home---she was really tired. She is napping again. Poor kid is really exhausted. I am going to get her up soon so she doesn't over do it.

It is nice to be home, in any case. I noticed that the rain gauge was full of water (I have checked it and emptied it already) and we had 2.9 inches of rain while we were gone. Mike had mentioned that they had a lot of rain the one day. The kitties seem happy to see us, which is always nice. I think Mickey is busy snoozing with Anne.

The anti-inflammatories that Dr. Dunne prescribed seem to be helping a good bit with Anne's foot/ankle, which we are really happy about. She will go in to pt on Monday for her initial evaluation, etc.

I guess that is it for now. Take care all and more later.

Glad you are home safe, inspite of the snafu with dates for the appoinments. You would have thought they would have told you all VERBALY when the appointments were, not just written down. YOu know, like if this date Ok with you?
