Just had a letter through to book an appointment with my bowel specialist, I rang them, the nice lady was like "I have one on the 6th of March?" and I (very rudely, didn't mean to be but I was horrified) said "Are you joking? It's just that I was supposed to have a rushed through appointment because I was in hospital all last week with the same problem" and she was like "What about the 27th of February?" and I just said (nicely this time) "Have you got anything sooner?" I think I probably sounded a bit pathetic, but then she said "I could squeeze you in on the 13th of February?" and I was just like "YES PLEASE!" So praise the lord I only have to wait a few weeks!!!! Hallelujah. Seriously, I have never been so happy in all my life to have a hospital appointment. It's only 2 weeks more of pain!
