As I need to be in Adelaide on Monday early morning so they can raise the fistula, I am going down to Adelaide on Sunday afternoon. Dad is coming with me as they told me yesterday that I will not be able to drive. Little did they know that I drove home after I had the fistula done last year, I did stay the extra night in Adelaide. I am staying down there until Wednesday afternoon as I have an appointment with my Nephrologist. Leave straight after this appointment.

As for the hospital accommodation, yes there is some but then you have to pay for car parking which when I looked into this last year it was going to cost as much as staying in a reduced price motel. I will be checking out the last minute deals for accommodation on the Net today and some of these you will get for about $70.00 per night. At least with Dad coming I will be able to leave the car there and not pay parking fees.

We have a scheme here called the Patient and Transport Scheme and will get money back from this for petrol and accommodation. With Dad being there I will get extra as he will be classed as being my carer. So this will help.

Still very tired from the trip yesterday. Lazy day planned, all I need to do is take my form up to the hospital to get paid for yesterday and I plan to go and see my grandchildren. That's it folks. Famous last words, now I wonder if my plans will work out today. LOL.

    Sending you strength and serenity...those medical appointments and procedures are wearing and expensive! Stanford, where DH gets post-liver Tx care, is in an urban area which is like visiting a war zone to us rural folks...can't get out of there fast enough!

Hope everything goes smoothly. I'm glad your dad is going with you...many times I remember stuff the doctors said when DH doesn't...always good to have an extra set of ears and eyes with you!

Take care,

    Sounds like a plan to me, Wendy....
Have a nice relaxing day, try & find some sunshine outdoors, even if it's only sitting outside on a chair for a half an hour!!
I'll be thinking of you...silly me, I thought it was yesterday you were getting it done!! sigh...
Love & Light, Hun...
Dinner time for me, TV & bed...Sweet Dreams tonight, dear Wendy...

Sylvia xx

    I wish you well Wendy. You'll be great as I'm sending some special Tassie good health vibes to you together with stacks of love and light! emoticon

Wow, how awesome you still have your Dad there to assist. That's wonderful, and I am sure you really appreciate that you have him to be there with you. Such a huge plus having someone close to be there. Good luck kiddo and I'll be thinking of you.
