Cubist Male Figure Oil on Canvas
Robert Lohman (American, 1919-2001)
Well today Stadsmobiel worked well, the bus was here at 09.55 and the driver came up and helped me into the lift and into the van.
When we got to the OLVG hospital, in the centre of Amsterdam, on the Prinsengracht, Richie deactivated the motor and pushed the wheelchair backwards onto the lift ramp, once on it he reactivated it again.
This worked very well and I got off again with no problems which was good, no better than that, it was brilliant,
Reversing n the mobility bus onto the lift ramp is scary and had me very worried for weeks now, was such a relief that Richie could sort this out for me so easily.
Really gave me a much needed boost, the appointment went very well, nice doctor, she explained everything to me.
The op has been rescheduled for 22 November at 11.00 and it has been decided because of my pain and spasms, Dr.Hovius wants to give me a total anaesthetic.
This is apparently not such a heavy one as I will be brought round quite quickly and after two hours of recovery time I can go home again.
Feel pretty reassured by the appointment with the urologist, it was extremely useful, she told me that it was a routine operation which took 20 minutes.
What a relief to have finally had the appointment felt like a huge weight rolled off my shoulders today.
Woke up calm today, I have been worried about the appointment and the whole procedure and today it was going to happen so no need for me to worry anymore.
This worked well and I was very relaxed and ready to see the doctor, onwards and upwards without any hesitations or worries.
