Work commitments meant I couldn't drive FL to hospital for his Velcade today. His appointment was set for "1.30pm for 2pm" - they need a half-hour warning that he has arrived before calling up the drugs from pharmacy, as once they are out of the fridge, they have to be used.
He had this plan he would get a (free) pensioner's bus pass and take up his ex-wife's suggestion of an all-day-trip to the hospital. He got passport photos taken yesterday (eyes closed in all pictures!) especially to get the pass. However, luckily, it was raining heavily this morning and he couldn't face standing around in the storm waiting for a bus, so he is driving after all.
Yesterday, he took a dose of Dexamethasone by mistake (it was supposed to be his "off" day) so he won't be taking it today. So... despite being at work (two major Committee meetings) I was on standby to drive him home again if he "crashes" in energy after his Velcade. What a muddle!
However, he just texted me to say that he not only got a parking space outside the clinic door but was seen straightaway and is now visiting a friend - amazing! Who needs me, baby?!
