Hi everyone.
Well I was up bright and early to take my meds and get ready for my Hydrotherapy appointment this morning. At 8.00 the hospital phoned to cancel - and have now rescheduled for next Monday. I am really disappointed as I was really looking forward to it, It meant that I also had to swap things round with work and have arranged to work 1-5 today, I can't change it back as I have made appointments with people for the afternoon.
This is the second appointment I have cancelled in as many weeks - my appointment with the Advice Centre to fill in DLA forms was also cancelled and rescheduled for this Wednesday which means two afternoons of working - resulting in long days for me.

    Oh how frustrating! (And you didn't forget your name, it always shows up to the side.) Let's hope the re-scheduled appointments do go ahead as planned, and make sure you rest as much as you can before and after work (and possible even during! :smile: ) DD

    Yes will try to rest a bit this morning- might even go back to bed for an hour, Busy afternoon though, doing assessments and reviews, which means a bit of walking I am afraid - hey ho I'll just have to take my time!

    Oh no.....Both frustrating and inconvenient.
    It isn't easy going back to bed when you are all syked up, you probably wont rest.
    Hey......go fill the bath with bubbles and do some excersises in there.

    I can imagine your disappointment, hydro pools are lovely and do help.
    I hope you get there next week.
    Hope this afternoon isn't too stressful at your meetings
    Take care

    Hi Cath,

    Sorry it was cancelled for you today. I wonder if they could arrange it around your work times if you asked them? Might be they v=can only do mornings mind but could be worth asking them.

    Fingers crossed this week will be easier than the last one and that they will see you next Monday as planed. Cris xx
