Feeling Lucky Today.
It was brilliant seeing Gareth and Paul, strange to think that our friends are already back home in Wales, their visit to Amsterdam was over much too fast again
Today is another could, wet and windy November day, slept pretty good last night, think the lavender oil helped me drift off.
When Richie drew back the curtain this morning I wished again that we could change the colour of the glass.
Am convinced that pink windows would be so much more cheerful during the winter months, have tried to convince Richie to stick pink transparent plastic over the windows.
That way even a grey day would look pleasant.
He does not think it is a good idea which is a shame and there is no way that I can convince him otherwise.
Ton Peeks from the RCA (Rehabilitation Centre Amsterdam) came by today to check the healed pressure sore and again he was very pleased with how good the skin looks.
I have been waiting to hear back from the neurologist’s assistant Dr. M. Temmings from the OLVG Amsterdam, he had responded quickly to my request for information about LDN.
He suggested that I could either have an appointment at the polyclinic or I could have a telephone appointment.
I mailed back that I would prefer a telephone appointment and got an immediate out of office response telling me he would be out of the office until the 16 November, and then never heard anything more.
Have sent a couple more mails and finally got a reply from Dr Temmings today, telling me to ring the hospital for an appointment.
Wish he had told me this on 10 November, and then I would have called to make an appointment the very next day.
Shame about these constant miscommunications, last year Dr Temmings told me any time I wanted to discuss my condition I could mail him for a telephone appointment.
Oh well that is life, tomorrow I will call for a telephone appointment, perhaps I will get one with the Neurologist Dr Kalkers herself.
Why talk to the monkey when I can talk to the organ grinder.
Will post more as soon as I have spoken to either Dr Kalkers or the assistant Dr.Temmings.
And who knows perhaps this time I will manage to get some information from a neurologist.
It has not happened so far but I am feeling lucky today.
