"Why are you here?"

A conversation I had with the Neurosurgeon's nurse this morning........at 8:10am!!!

Nurse:  "What can we do for you today?"

Me, ever so patiently:  "I don't know."

Nurse:  "Why did you come in?"

Me:  "They told me to come in today for a follow-up.  They set up the appointment in post-op last Wednesday."

Nurse:  "You had your surgery just last Wednesday?  That was just five days ago."

Me:  "I know.  That's why I stopped by the other day.  It didn't seem right to me, either.  The paper said: 'Nurse..Sutures.  Monday, March 15 at 8:10'.  Then underneath it it said, '10 days'.  I was confused myself.  Of course, I was still under the influence of anesthesia when they gave my husband this information so I didn't question it until I was more alert."

Nurse:  "There's no reason for you to be here today."

Me:  "I didn't think so, but I do what I'm told to do."

So I got up at 6:30 IN THE MORNING to drive downtown for an appointment that I didn't need to go do.  It's thoroughly thrown my day off.  Now I don't feel like doing anything.  My return appointment is for the 25th to have my sutures removed.  Hopefully!!

I hate it when that happens! You'll just have to do it all over in 5 more days! Take care.

It's not funny sometimes that we became the victim of other people's incompetence. We can do nothing but build on the patience.
