Hospital stay

Well what a few past days I've had.
Thursday morning when I went to the bathroom I knew I had to see a doctor so I went to the Walk in Clinic and when I saw the doctor what was going on he said that didn't look good.
He told me to go to the Bay Port Hospital that they had a room waiting for me and they knew of my problem.
A doctor  Joseph Staffetti MD a specialist in Gastroenterology came into my room that evening and had a talk with me and said I needed a colonoscopy to see what was going on.
So they had me scheduled for Friday at 2:00pm  at 15 after they said it will be 3:00as they were running late isn't the doctors always running late?  Well it was 4:15 when they came for me to wheel me to the operating room.  It was good news in the all they had to do was to cut out the  hemorrhoids and a couple of  Diverticulitis pockets.
They called me a taxi at 7:00pm they would not let me drive my own car.  The good part was when I was going to pay the taxi driver the $41.00 showing on the meter the driver said it would be the hospital that would be paying for it.  Well today it was my turn to pay the way back to get my car. I thought why not take the bus that would take me with one exchange right to the hospital.
So with my fare totaling $1.50 for the two buses and two hour of my time was ok with me. I would travel on a bus all day for $20.00 an hour.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Glad everything turned out Okay. It seems as we age more and more of those kinds of things just show up.

It's about time.
