Well sometimes a day really does not go, the way you plan. A ride in an ambulance was definitely not on my agenda.
Yesterday I woke at 5.30am to find that because maybe the stage of my life and the time of the month, something was not right, I had haemorrhaged which was very scary.
DH phoned the Medical Centre emergency line .... 111. He did this and within half an hour the ambulance had whisked us down in time to catch the 7.15 am ferry. This is the ferry that DH normally catches and most of our friends were on the boat. Laying in the sick bay was not much fun, feeling like a drained out dish rag and looking like the colour of parchment.
So was so glad when the 35 minute ferry trip was over and the ambulance was waiting, to deliver us to Auckland hospital.
Our friend Nurse Jackie ( also a commuter ) rode with us and made sure that we were looked after once we arrived and we were lucky to have a room to ourselves, with a bathroom.
I was told I could not have anything to eat or drink, maybe a sip of water was all, if I needed.
A cup of tea would have been so nice as that was my normal way of starting my day.
After 8 hours of seeing three Doctors, explaining everything to each one, examinations, prodding and ultrasounds, I was so happy when they gave us the ok to go home.
DH spent the day doing work on his laptop at the little desk in the room and fielding lots of text calls from our friends, who were very supportive.
I was glad to get home, have a delicious meal cooked by DH, ( I was very hungry )
have a shower, and tuck myself into bed for a good nights sleep.
So now we wait for the results and hope that all will be well.

I hope that you are having a great week
