Monday March 1; had a scrub up and a shave went out to do the big shopping with er-indoors finally winding up at the urologist for examination of the waterworks. Dont those blokes ask some very intimidating personal questions?
It was decided that a certain procedure would be necessary, and after noticing my Vet Affairs card, the Doc assuming I possessed a Aussie gold card said he could do it on Thursday no dollar problems with the true blue gold card. However, telling him I was qualified in every form except not born and bred or a member of the German army who migrated here in the late forties became an Oz Cit and fought in Korea with the Strayer military. Simply a member of the 'Forgotten British Pacific Fleet' who defended Australia during WW2. The Doc was as unconcerned or ignorant of the facts as our past two encounters with that inept Fed Govt 'Clark Committee' mob in Canberra.
The Doc then decided that the accumulated fees of around a grand would cover the procedure even if I had insurance and it could be done on this Thursday(tomorrow)Or for $275 bucks it could be done in two to three months at a state hospital. Having been informed by my local Chinese witch doctor that the problem was not too sinister or life threatening I said three months will be ok.
Tuesday, one day later received info from St Vincents Hospital Sydney that they had a space I could use for my ruptured vein Vascular procedure(not the urologist thingy) and as a result I'll be getting done around nine AM tomorrow Thursday. It is now evident that I was wise not to have accepted the urologists offer for Thursday.
Of course on Monday , nearest and dearest has her colonscopy thingy, so it seems we will both be having a sore something or other to put up with for a while.
Get back to you later, Vest.
