Recently I read a blog written by a 'Snowbirding' Canadian. He posted this video about cats being used in avalanche rescue. Who'd have thought!
Somehow I can't see Rescue Cats taking on in New Zealand's mountains.
Another medical appointment to keep tomorrow. This is a follow up to last week's eyelid surgery. When I was discharged from Post Op I was given an appointment for the Ophthalmology Clinic at Thames Hospital for tomorrow. That suits us quite well as it's half the travel distance. I was told I would receive an appointment time in the mail. Experience has taught us to not hold our breath but to phone the hospital and check. This morning after checking our mail box we made the phone call. The booking office has not received anything from Waikato Hospital. Typical! We will now turn up at the clinic about 10 am and will be seen anytime between then and when the Clinic closes sometime after 3 pm.
Our daughter is one of the local District or Community Nurses and one of the big frustrations they face is incomplete referrals when people are discharged from hospital but need some continuing care, usually for wound dressings. You would think it would be a simple matter to fax such important stuff.
OH!.... and my eyelid is healing perfectly and I will soon to be walking on the beach. In the meantime I am on a mission to complete a a patchwork quilt. More about that another day.
I tend to trust people to do what they say they will. When it comes to hospitals, and I guess many other things, it pays to be somewhat paranoid and double check everything.
