So yesterday was rather uneventful. I woke up, had some stale white bread with almond cream and that was it for food for the day.
We had a long and involved conversation about an esoteric book and astrology and all kinds of things over my husband’s and the boy’s breakfast, and then it was time to see the dermatologist for the boy and me.
He is now the proud owner of yet more cortisol cream, this one needs to be prescribed by the doctor. He also has a treatment plan and a course of action for different things that might happen. That was rather painless and almost nice.
We then went to the pharmacy for the creme and then to a drug store for handcreme and gloves.
The rest of the day for me was mostly spent reading Kate Davies’ new book (it is great, I highly recommend it), doing colonoscopy prep, and ripping back my husband’s cowl and starting „Wolkig“ by Martina Behm instead.
I also spent quite a bit of time trying to find out how to get to my appointment tomorrow. Seems like I have a choice of a forty-minute bus ride with changing buses and walking a lot or taking the train and a bus afterwards. Usually I would just walk to my destination from the train station before but I’m not quite sure that I’ll be up for a twenty-minute walk tomorrow morning without breakfast and such. Usually it is a seven-minute walk to the train station, a six-minute train ride and a less-than-five minutes walk to get to that particular doctor…
My husband promised me to be in reach of the phone in case I need him today but I’m guessing that asking the people at the doctor’s office to call me a cab might be the better course of action in case things go slightly sideways. Hmpf.
And I will have to do all of this on an empty stomach while not being able to drink any water until after the whole thing. I also was advised to take all my pills after the whole thing which means taking my thyroid medication right after and then I’ll have to wait for half an hour before eating something else.
So. No definite plans for today – apart from hopefully getting to the colonoscopy in time and probably having pizza for lunch afterwards.
The house hasn’t been cleaned in two weeks but that can’t be helped.
Of course that train inconvenience had to happen on the day of my appointment…
