Set the alarm for 6am this morning to call hospital about my uncle... They told me yesterday he would be having a little operation this morning (UK time). They can't tell me more over the phone (doctor patient confidentiality) but it's "nothing to worry about". They are very fond of that phrase. Seems I have something else not "to worry about" because when I call to see how he was after the operation, I was told he hadn't had it. My first reaction was to think he was too ill to have the operation... but it seems it's the surgery team and not Cliff that is holding things up. So I'm sitting here very nervous until it's time to call back again.|
In other news... (and I really needed some good news)
My letting agent has emailed me. They have new tenants for me... references are being checked and they move in as soon as old ones move out. And I have a sneaking suspicion I know the people, not very well just on nodding terms. Very relieved as I think the next few months could be expensive for me. And this would be the worst possible time for my income to halve. I'm thinking of getting digs near the hospital my uncle is in when I get back to the UK, my car is due for a service and MOT and I may have to clear out my uncle's flat, if he really is serious about going into a residential care home.
And, apropos to nothing what so ever, my 60Gb mp3 player is full up.
