We made another trip to the city today. Again my darling daughter kept me company. This time I had to go the city hospital where Dingaling has his office for a Methacoline Challenge. My appointment was at 2:00 PM. It turned out to be various types of breathing tests with the last one a Ventolin Challenge. The technicians decided because my breathing fell within normal limits they would do the Ventolin Challenge instead of the Methacoline Challenge. What could I say – I know nothing about these tests.. I guess the Ventolin challenge did not do what it was suppose to do or what they thought it would do. After the Ventolin Challenge I was told that because I had had the Ventolin today I could not have the Methacoline today. They scheduled me to come back tomorrow at 2:00 PM. This means a 50 minute drive into the city again tomorrow. Wish the medical people could get their act together. I was originally scheduled for the Methacoline challenge – why these technicians decided to change it is beyond me. They gave me some mumbo jumbo explanation – like I could understand. I guess what it boiled down to was that I was much to weary to really care what they did and what medication I inhaled.
The nice thing about today was that my daughter and I got to have a lovely lunch after the tests. I am so fortunate that she is my daughter. She is the mommy of my darling grandson. I have been told by my grandson that I can no longer call him darling in public. He says, “Nana do you know how embarrassing it is?” They think they are so grown-up at 7.
This is off topic but my dad gave me an old cow bell to ring at my grandson’s hockey games. Well, Grandson was not impressed and told me I had no permission to bring that horrible thing with me to the games. Guess I better leave the bell at home!
After my appointments today the fatigue set in before I got home. That 50 minute drive seemed to take forever. Having my daughter with me made it bearable. I guess tomorrow will be a repeat performance of today.
I wonder when and if I will ever get the results of these tests I did today! Still waiting for test results done on January 14th.
