Well, I had my covid test yesterday, so I'm a step nearer to having my operation on Wednesday. It was a drive through thing in the car park of the local community hospital, they will only contact me if it's a positive result - I sincerely hope not. If I don't hear from them, I can assume it was negative and go for my op on Wednesday as planned.
We had a leaflet come through the other day from a clothing company we've bought things from a few times, they have a sale on at the moment and were offering a free gift if your order is over £30, they do that quite often. The free gift this time is an overnight bag and matching toiletries bag....just right for my hospital attendance. Although my op is hopefully a day case thing, I've been told to take an overnight bag just in case - I have an adverse reaction to general anaesthetic, and my congenital mild liver disease might possibly cause me to become jaundiced following an operation, so I may have to stay overnight for observation. So I ordered a couple of things....Husband wanted a new rugby shirt and I ordered a top reduced to half price, the total for both was just over £30, so I qualified for the free gift too. The order came yesterday (delivered by courier at 5.45 pm on a Sunday!). I sterilised the package before opening, and thoroughly washed my hands after handling..the tops are lovely - but no free gift! I suppose it could come separately, but no mention of it. I do have a weekend bag I can use, but it's bigger than the overnight one - not that it matters really. I've emailed the company, although I doubt I'll receive the missing bag now before Wednesday.
Having a family video quiz this evening, which should be a laugh, a bit of a diversion from the boring routine. I know this lockdown is necessary, especially prior to my op, but I'm totally fed up with house arrest!
