What a long day today turned out to be!!
I was up, fed and dressed quite early, even time for a photo session by my pots of colour. Working a Black and White theme today and loving it. Note my new to me tunic under my jacket, its mint as.
I left Jak to sleep this morning while I popped out to do some things before I had to get him to hospital. We arrived for admitting at 11:30, he got the low down from a delightful nurse, then he got dressed in his hospital garb!! So stylish as we all know and I bet it is the same world wide, those bloody awful gowns that tie at the back and always mange to fly open. Must say that the Southern Cross is a mighty nice private hospital, and rather glad we don't have to pay. Thanks ACC, or is that, thanks NZ tax payers. Hang on, me, TOF and Jak are all tax payers?
Thanks to us then!!
He was finally taken away for surgery at 1:30pm and by then I could have eaten grass I was that hungry (breakfast was at 6:30am). So I left the hospital and went into Hamilton East for a spot of lunch and some op shop retail therapy. Lunch was so yum! Sour dough bread toasted with Avocado, tomato, feta, cracked pepper and sweet red onions. Washed down with a very nice Mocha and all delivered by the nicest young men ever. It was so relaxing sitting at a table outside on the pavement watching people going about their business while I enjoyed my lunch. Might make this for my breakfast tomorrow, it was that delish!!
The Salvo in Hamilton East had some pretty nice things today. Like the small magnetic travel Backgammon and Chess set, the super gorgeous skirt, small china bowl with quote, the best looking pot brush ever and some very pretty fabric that quite possibly could be a sheet!! Weak moment again. I left the shops and went back to the hospital around 3:00pm only to find that the poor lads op didn't start until just after 2:30. Seemed silly to sit and wait for a couple of hours there on such a glorious day so I headed home. But detoured into Habitat first where I found another M.I.L.K book, cane handles, and a small key cupboard with a chalk board heart on the door.
No floating in the back yard today, more of a spin took place in the light breeze. Seemed appropriate as the dogs were barking and spinning with excitement of me being back home.
Funny how they carry on
as if you have been away for days not hours!
Not the cat though.
Tex was very very busy
The surgeon phoned me just after 4:00pm to say all had gone well and Jak was in recovery so I went back to the hospital to check in on him. Apart from being a little woozie he said he was feeling pretty ok. His dinner arrived but he didn't feel like it so......
...one of his mated that had come to visit on his way home from work
So I shall go collect him around mid day tomorrow if all goes well tonight, which I am sure it will. Hopefully his hand will heel fast and the poor lad can get back to work and living.
